It’s been a rough time — 58 Comments

  1. Having had a corgi that had disc issues, I know how VERY uncomfortable they are. It’s no wonder Roxy didn’t do any scooching along for the butt issue, her back probably hurt too much. Hopefully she feels better soon!

    I had a friend who actually kept a tarantula as a pet. I could not bring myself to hold it! It made my skin crawl. Funny, I can handle snakes with no problem, but spiders, no way!

  2. sorry to hear your having all that pain but glad your on the mend and getting lots of cuddles. Your harness! Well all I can say Roxy is you make it look cute!

  3. This post is filled with all sorts of awful – I hope you’re starting to feel better soon and they can really pin-point your troubles. It’s no fun not knowing exactly what’s wrong. Take it easy in the meantime and tell your humans to give you lots of pets!

    And to top it off – a tarantula! SICK! No thank you. I always say I will take a few days of -40 weather in the winter to guarantee we don’t get giant bugs like that – spiders are the worst!

    But your harness IS adorable, so there’s that.

    And ewwwwwwwww is right! That spider is HUGE. Eek!

  5. Roxy, I hope you are feeling better soon! I must say, that new harness is absolutely adorable on you – love the color! Glad you are getting lots of snuggle time with your day :) I feel the same way about any spiders, but especially tarantulas! EWWWWWWWW!!!!!

  6. Oh Roxy, I’m so sorry to hear you’re in pain. I love your new harness and hope it helps a little. But most of all I think the cuddles with daddy will do the trick xx

  7. I’m so sorry to read that you are in pain, I hope you are feeling better soon. I’m sure your family is very worried, it’s hard when we see our four-footed besties hurting and we can’t make it better.

  8. My sisters and I feel so bad for you. You are so small and cute, hard to imagine you are in so much pain. My senior sis Katie is having bad issues with her front left leg this winter and has to stay home rather than walking sometimes. It makes us all sad. Have you thought about trying a different medication? Rimadyl did nothing for Katie but Metacam has helped her a lot. Just a thought. Hope you feel better soon!

  10. Oh Miss Roxy, I am so sorry to hear that you haven’t been feeling well! I have seen the anal gland thing before and you are right, it is not pleasant and they always looks so ouchy. I hope your regular vet is able to figure out a good plan for you. We have some tarantulas in a town just north of here. Thankfully, they aren’t around my house though!

  11. oh roxy, i’m sorry you aren’t feeling well. my kibbles (a doxie mix) used to have back problems. doc said jumping on and off the sofa was too much stress on her back, so hubby built her a ramp! no more stress. now bailey uses it and loves it.
    kibbles also had issues with her anal glands. so much so, that she had to have them removed!
    feel better soon roxy!

  13. So sorry to hear you’re not feeling well Roxy.

    My Jasper can really understand your anal sac issue. He had a double blow-out once. Turns out he had some kind of congenital issue that made his anal sacs prone to problems. Took us over a year–and two surgeries–to fix it.

    I’ve heard a lot of good things about acupuncture with dogs; maybe that would help. In the meantime, snuggles and love go a long way toward helping you feel better.

  14. Oh I’m sorry to hear you’re in so much pain, Roxy. HufflePup had to have emergency surgery because he slipped a disc but didn’t show us any symptoms for a few days and then over the course of three or four days he started walking very hunched up, slipping and his legs slid out from under him and locked up sprawled on the ground :( Scared the life out of us. I hope your regular vet spots the problem and gets you the care you need!

  15. Oh Roxy. I’m so sorry to hear about your pain. Our whole pack is sending you the potp… it really helps. Our last “senior” dog was helped immensely by acupuncture when his pains got going. Just a thought… but it does sound like it’s a long way to the vet so that might not be an option.

    Take care.

  16. I’m really sorry to hear you are feeling poorly Roxy. I do hope that Mom has a handle on it and you are feeling better soon.

    Those anal glands are tough. Bot of my dogs just recently had theirs expressed at the vets. I know from watching them that it’s not a pleasant experience. I do hope the antibiotic helps.

    As for the spider…OMG no arachnid should be THAT big!

  17. Hi again, i wanted to tell you that im not paid or anything by these people but i had seen this advertised and entered into the drawing and won! Have you checked out the website for: I and love and you pet food company? The guy who started this is the guy from bear naked granola which i love! They do all natural better stuff. Im going to try their samples. I noticed on their site some coupons etc and some supplements for joints etc that may help roxy and they are holistic….i dont know your beliefs but i am one for not having pain and inflammation and if i can do it without sde effects and bad stuff i try. I just thought i would pass along to u just in case. I hope roxy gets better soon. My little mini aussie has uti right now what fun…they have great videos on this site too,

  18. Oh Roxy, I am so sorry you haven’t been feeling well. I know there were high hopes you would get better when getting out of that cold weather, and it’s so disappointing that that didn’t help. I hope they can figure out what’s going on with you and get you on the mend soon. In the meantime, try to enjoy just getting spoiled, and I hope Mom and Dad can try not to worry too much.
