Yo was hanging his head as he stood by the door waiting for Steve to lace on his running shoes. Steve stopped and looked at WD, "I would like you to be a little less critical, you have hurt Yo's feelings. And remember what you always tell everyone...it is not the outside but the inside that counts!" With that the boys headed off at a brisk walk to the spa.
Even White Dog had to admit his was time well spent...and when she heard that Tara had raved about how cooperative and well-mannered YAWD was, she had to apologize to the big floofy now gleaming white boy.

There is still a bit of wheezing so we will keep the current dosage a bit longer but over the long term Puff will remain on a reduced maintenance dosage (the target is 1/2 a tab every other day) for the rest of her days. With this she should be able to have a normal active life including walking with the WDA again and enjoying the out of doors (with a caution that she should avoid high heat and weather extremes). It is Dr. Julia's hope to begin ramping down the medication starting early next week depending on how our girl sounds.
To the dainty Puff the Magical, some of the best news was that Dr. Julia said it was OK for her to bathe and freshen up. During the ordeal, the fastidious girl had to live with pink cough syrup stains on her ruff, betadyne like yellow stains around her mouth and shaved paw, and just general untidiness at the backside. She was VERY glad to have Steve soap her up in the pretty rosemary scented shampoo and wash away the last memories of the horrible experience. Have a happy weekend!
