A bed fit for a Piebald
We can't thank our MidWest Dachshund Rescue friend Alison enough for surprising your Long and Short of it All host 'Joey' with this new bed to help in his recovery after surgery. He LOVES it. Joey was so excited when Dad removed it from the packaging, and it complements his piebaldism perfectly. He rolled around in it immediately, tail wagging at full speed. "It's a big giant ME!," he must have thought. Alison made this herself!
Joey continues to recover well after his long ordeal. He's still getting adjusted on his medications for Addison's Disease. The daily prednisone he takes is causing him to drink and pee a lot, but we're hoping to reduce his dose some to alleviate this. He had electrolytes drawn last Saturday to check and make sure they are OK, as his monthly DOCP injections control them. They are looking good, but he is probably going to need a dose reduction of his DOCP as well. Otherwise, he is a happy, hungry, and active little guy. We're so thankful.
UPDATE 12 NOON: Thanks to ISewNBake for leaving a comment: Alison has some on ebay right now and she regularly donates them to MWDR for raffles. Here is the link to the 2 she's got for sale right now: eBay. Hurry up, they are Buy It Now!
