Yesterday we missed Corbin's birthday celebration and Pitbull Day- we are sorry for that and we will post tomorrow! Our excuse is a good one- Thai went on a trip to visit Miss Marcia, his original DRNA foster Mom! Miss Marcia lives on a beautiful farm about an hour away, so we loaded up the DWM for this trip- Everyone has been to Miss Marcia's with the exception of Anna Rose! Thai lived with Miss Marcia for almost two years, and loved living at her farm- he would go on walkabouts down to the barn where he would sit under the bush in these pictures and catch swallows as they flew near him, just for a snack! As you can see in these photos, Thai has a way with the ladies, belly band and all! Anna Rose wandered all over loving it, and had a great grass snack under Thai's bush. Tasha worked on her running for BLogville's upcoming Olympics- she even outraced Chip!
WHN has kept in close touch with Miss Marcia the entire time Thai has ruled the DWM pack- we have several visits a year at either our home or Thai's other home- MIss Marcia's house! WHN has kept her up to date on all of Thai's medical issues and adventures also, but it was still a shock for her to see how he was unable to walk without any kind of help and that he can't stand without help any more. He chowed down at lunch time and shared his treats with the DWM and Miss Marcia's pack. His physical decline has been gradual, but we could see it, and even though Miss Marcia and her husband knew of it, seeing it first hand was still hard for them- they love Thai as much a we do. Our Energizer Dachshund had a great day- trying to walk and succeeding better than could be expected. He slept on the trip home and had a great night, snoring away! This morning, he walked down to the driveway after answering the call of nature and leaving a "Thai pile" for Dad on the lawn. While waiting for his slaves to feed him, he wandered over to the back door in the office/train room, and peed standing up, as if nothing was wrong! He has not been able to do this for over a month! (He has to pee sitting down outside and in his belly band inside) The Vasotec is helping him, and we are thankful for this extra time!
