More about Merlin

He seems better for a fifteen year old. He is able to get on the couch by himself, sometimes needing a little help. He is eating good and still enjoys his very short walks. The vet doesn't want him walking much, but we only go about three houses and then home. It rained today, so we did not go out...

My Merlin

My Whippet Merlin had an event this Monday. He went down spread eagle and started shaking really bad. I thought he may of had a stroke...

Tuesday morning I took him to the vet. Merlin has arthritis in the spine and maybe a slipped disc. The vet gave me some meds for him and if he doesn't improve in the next few days they want to xray the spine. He is having trouble with his hind legs. He cant get up on the couch or chairs and I am lifting him for that. Merlin is a rescue, so I don't know his actual age but he is about 12 years old.. Please say some prayers for him.

He can walk a little but his hind legs are very shaky.. I am so worried....

Easter Day Earthquake

We had a big one on Easter Sunday in the afternoon. I was walking with my friend and our dogs when it hit. I thought I was having a dizzy spell... The sidewalks looked like ocean waves and the parked cars were shaking back and forth and the telephone poles and cables were swaying back and forth. It was scary.

We are still having minor after shocks but they are not bad.

I guess that is part of life here in Southern California. The epicenter was in Mexico and was about 150 miles away. The quake was felt as far as San Francisco and Phoenix Arizona....

A busy Day

I had company yesterday and during our delicious lunch of a Chinese chicken salad made by my Son, the sink clogged up and my son had to open the escape valve on the outside of the house and flush it all out. He did fix it, thank goodness. Then my friend who sold her house came home from out of state and couldn't go home because the inspectors were at her home so she and her husband stayed and visited a while. We had a great visit and her little dog was so happy to see mom and dad after a week at my house. It was a good but busy day. Today I will do laundry...
Wishing all my friends a Happy Easter....
