Buster Here…

Buster here, I’m writing my first post- kind of exciting!  Lots of news to report on.  My gastroenteritis came back, so I had to go back to the V-E-T and get a shot to stop my diarrhea before it got to the bad part where it got at the end of the summer when Finchy and I both wound up at the animal hospital. 

Finchy turned 10 on Howl-ween.  We got to help hand out candy on his birthday- and bark at the costumes that were scary.  Finchy had to go to the hospital for an overnight stay a couple weeks ago.  He was throwing up blood again.  He tested positive for Pan-kre-titis.  The vet told Mom and Dad that he also thinks Finchy has intestinal cancer (the C word- yuck), and they could check by doing an ultrasound.  He thinks that because even though Finchy tested positive for Pan-kre-titis, he didn’t fit the profile, but he fits the profile for cancer.  Mom and Dad didn’t want to do one at that time, because Finchy was doing better (and they kind of don’t want to know).  So, Finchy has been kind of grumpy for a few weeks, but yesterday he wrestled with me again for the first time in a long time.  And last night he ate his dinner for the first time- which bummed me out because I always eat his dinner. 

Mom took me rollerblading to run off some of my energy.  It had been a while, and I got a little spooked, so Mom got a bit of road rash at the beginning.  I told her I was sorry and she got back up and we kept going.  She was pretty slow at first (I think she didn’t want to eat the road again) but then we found our rhythym again and had a pretty good time.

I think that’s pretty much all the updates now.  My family keeps talking about Thanksgiving.  My other family kept me outside, so I don’t know what this means, but I think it will be fun.  Oh, I know, sometimes I sleep on the bed with Finchy and they don’t kick me off.  That’s nice too- I used to have to sleep outside before they adopted me.

Now I’m done.

  1. Yikes Buster, that was quite an update. Let’s start with the good stuff first: you will absolutely LOVE Thanksgiving!! I think you are in for quite a treat! Just remember to pace yourself, and try not to overdo things. You’ll understand what I’m talking about when Thursday gets here!!

    As for Finchy, that is very scary news! I am very glad to hear he’s feeling better right now. I hope what he has is not the C-word, because no one likes that word!! Tell Finchy we’re thinking of him, and we hope your whole family has a really great holiday!!

  2. Oh Buster, I’m sorry that you were both feeling icky. It’s a bummer that you didn’t get Finchy’s dinner, but pretty great that he felt well enough to eat it! I can’t blame your pawrents for not wanting to know if it’s the c word. It’s a very bad word!

    Your poor mom – if I had eaten the road, we would have gone right home, I think she’s brave!

    Have a great Thanksgiving!

  3. Wow Buster! That is a big update! It is very nice to hear from you. I am sorry you were not feeling well.

    I am also very sorry to hear that Finchy hasn’t been well either. Let’s hope that vet is wrong wrong wrong about the C word.

    Give your Mom lots of smooches, though. Especially if she falls again and gets road rash.

    Lola sends her sniffs, too!

  4. Hey Buster, I’m really bummed out to hear about Finchy. He’s only 10, still a kid, so I have all my paws crossed that mean ol’ cancer isn’t the reason why he’s been a cranky pants. Promise to keep us posted on that OK?

    As for you rollerblading with your Momma. Wow! That is so cool. You know my Momma is such a klutz, she rollerblades with hiking poles! That way she doesn’t fall. She wishes she could skate with a dog but I never see that happening.

    Hey what did ya eat for Thanksgiving? Did they spoil you rotten? I’ll bet they did!
