The Adorable Mini Dachshund

MINIDASHCUNDA miniature Dachshund may be small but he has plenty of energy. Along with long walks, you can help train his energy with some lively games. There’s nothing more enjoyable for your mini dog than playing fetch. Retrieving balls and squeaky dog toys is his idea of nirvana. It is also a good opportunity for you to teach him the command “drop it.” He also likes to play “tug” but make sure it’s not too rough and you are the one who starts and ends the game. Playing hide and seek with him is also fun as long as he already knows how to sit. Try teaching him a few new tricks like “hi five” or “take a bow.” Make sure you have those dog treats handy! If you take the time to play with your mini Dachshund, he will have a fit mind and body. It will also keep him more relaxed and happier. He will really enjoy sleeping in his dog bed at the end of a long day of play!

Update on Molly

Doing pretty well with hyperthyroidism and kidney disease of course I spoil her!

Doing pretty well with hyperthyroidism and kidney disease of course I spoil her!

As you know, my 17 year old cat, Molly was diagnosed with kidney disease and hyperthyroidism in late December. Here’s an update on the old girl. I’ve been giving her low protein and low phosphorous cat food and mixing with a high potency omega oil, called Astro’s Oil. She take 5 milligrams of Methamazole for her thyroid twice a day. I cut the tiny pill in half for each dose. I check her and adjust the amount as necessary. Sometimes, I give her a little less so she doesn’t get so sluggish. Her last test results showed that her Thyroid is back to normal levels and her Kidney disease has not advanced. This is a very delicate situation. I have to make sure she eats, drinks and pees regularly.Right now, she’s being a little finicky. I don’t know if it’s because of the disease or she’s just spoiled. I am sort of going crazy trying to mix a combination of cat food that she likes. I’m spending a small fortune! It’s all worth it for Molly. She is a wonderful companion and I hope to have her munching on cat treats, sleeping in her cat bed and driving me nuts for a long time to come!
