It’s been a rough time — 58 Comments

  1. I’m so sorry for you Roxy that you have all the pain. Hope they soon will be gone and that the antibiotics will help you.

  2. I am so sorry you are having a painful time. We all send you our very best purrs and hope the all better finds you really soon.

  3. Me and my pack all have our paws together and crossed hoping you’ll feel all better soon.

    And, YIKES. That spider thing is giving Mom the creepy crawlies!

  4. Oh dear Roxy we are so sorry you are not well. Sending you healing vibes and POTP. It is hard we know for you seniors. Take it easy.
    Yikes to the scary thing with lots of legs.
    Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. 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!

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. Roxy, I’m so sad that you’ve been feeling so badly. Mom has the right idea though 0 lots of rest and snuggles is the best cure.

  9. Hey Roxy

    Sorry to hear you’re not feeling well buddy, I hope you’re on the mend really soon and stay safe from those tarantulas!!

    Wags to all,

    Your pal Snoopy :)

  10. I just hate that Roxy is having so much pain and so many bad days. Hope she’s feeling better very soon.

  11. Oh Roxy, I had no idea you were in such pain. I am so sorry to hear this and I sure hope you can feel better soon. I’ll be sure to send you lots of *Cairn cuddles* every day to help you heal up good as new. You take it easy.

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

  12. Roxy I am so sorry to hear that you aren’t feeling well. I didn’t know about your bad back, it can’t be fun at all. Lucky that you have dad to snuggle with. Have you tried any of the joint supplements? I hope you are back on your walks with Torrey and mom soon. Love Dolly

  13. 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!!!!!

  14. 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

  15. 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.

  16. Oh Roxy, I’m so sorry. I hope that your mom’s regimen works quickly and that you find relief. Moms really do know best. And that spider! *shudder*

  17. Sorry to hear you are not feeling well! I don’t have any experience with pups with this problem so can’t offer any advice, but we will be sending our best pawsitive thoughts that you feel better soon! (And massive heebie-jeebies re: the spider!)

  18. 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!

  19. Aww, Roxy! We sure hope you feel better soon. Make sure to get lots of snuggles in the meantime!
    Your pals,
    Diane and Rocco

  20. oh Roxy you poor baby!!!! We are so sorry to hear that you have been having such a rough time. We feel so bad and wish we could help. I am trying to send licks through the computer to you and hope that they reach you. We love you! We are also glad that nasty tarantula didn’t get ya!!! Please feel better soon Roxy! Love from all of us! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  21. I was wondering why we hadn’t seen many pictures of you out and about, Roxy. Keep snuggling up and resting- your new harness is the cutest EVER!

  22. Oh Roxy!
    Mes feels your pain! Getting old is not fun!
    Mes is sending yous kitty kisses and will purray that yous feels better.

  23. 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!

  24. 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!
    wags, bailey unleashed

  25. Awww my poor dear Roxy! Sending warm husky hugs your way! I hope you feel better soon!!
    Poor girl!
    And btw EEWWW!!!!! S-s-SPIDER!!! Ahhhhhhh!!!!! Egads!!!!!! That would be the first pic I have seen on your lovely blog that I do not like!! Lol
    Give me goosebumps just looking at it! Lol

  26. Sorry you’re in pain. So not fun. It sounds like you need a chiropractor.

    Maybe your dad can give you a gentle massage while you’re cuddling with him to see if it makes you feel better.

  27. Oh, no Roxy. That is terrible news! Not only are you in pain but you don’t get to go on any adventures (although you probably don’t feel like any anyway). I sure hope you feel better soon.

  28. 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.

  29. Oh no! Poor sweet little Roxy. :'( I’m seriously getting teary-eyed thinking about this. You poor girl. My prayers are for a quick and full recovery. XOXOXO

  30. We too know about the good days, and the bad. But, we are happy to say the number of good still far outweigh the number of bad here … and we hope they do for you as well. Much love and good vibes!

  31. 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!

  32. 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.

  33. Oh, poor Roxy! I hope the vet will help figure out ways to help you get more comfortable soon. Aches make the human grumpy and aches makes Donna refuse food. :(

  34. 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!

  35. 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,

  36. 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.
