Bucky update....

Bucky enjoys playing with a harness more than his figure!

I wuv tennis balls....
Good evening!

Just wanted to post a quick note about our little Buckster! Tuesday night we went to see Dr. P and she was very happy to see how Bucky was progressing. Since she started him on his special diet and medication, he is a different puppy..full of "piss and vinegar"! He is playing hard with his big brother Nitschke AND holding his own!
At this time, Dr. P decided to hold off on his vaccinations until his next visit, she wants to make sure he has another month or so to grow more before administering his shots, which in my opinion is fine! I would rather take a conservative approach to ensure his continued good health.
For those of you who don't know, Bucky, our little Black Lab pup has a liver shunt (some of his blood bypasses his liver) hence it does not get cleansed as needed. As Dr. P reminded us, there is no guarantee, but for us, everyday is a celebration of time we get to spend with him.

Oh before I forget.....weigh in...Nitschke is 37 lbs...and Bucky is 27 lbs....whew..little chubby monkee's! LOL

Enjoy your evening...

Peace..R Dean

  4. Puppies full of 'piss and vinegar' are a good sign. They are both so very cute. Thanks for keeping us up to date on them. :>)

  5. Thanks EVERYONE! Your kind words mean so much to us! Bucky is a fighter...We pray that in five years we'll still be sharing pictures and escapades of the Buck-meister!
