What a beauty! Glad to hear she is finding her place in the pack, that transition period can be a real chore at times for a involved. Ruth

Ruth she is the third dachsie I have brought home not as a tiny pup, Chase was 6 months and put Rhuari in his place from day one, Lois was 2yrs old she had 12 week old pups and left her breeder she was really attached to so she took the longest to settle with the other 2, I got her a crate of her own as a safe haven, the other 2 ignored her grumbling under her breath and climbed in with her,the grumbling soon stopped and she always likes to be at the bottom of the pile when sleeping in a heap,we bonded straight off, now Maizie at 10 months old and she has been no problem either, I have learnt to treat each as an individual and go at their pace.

Getting Maizie at this age means less likely her conformation will go awry as it can with tiny pups,Lexis being a good example.

I was planning on getting pics at Mum's this weekend but she had her gall bladder removed on Wed. so not fit to help me.

Hope your mum recovers quickly. I had mine removed in September and it was not the most pleasant experience. There are still some foods that i cannot eat, but not eating wouldn't hurt me one bit either. Getting your pup at an older age does have its advantages in regards to conformation. I have held pups back that were evaluated at 8-9 weeks of age that did not turn out as expected but mother nature can play tricks on you once in a while. Send new pics when you can! Ruth

Had to get the Dr out to Mum yesterday, she rang me to say her abdomen was really swollen and she felt really sick, so went round and her tummy was much bigger than the day before when I checked and changed some of her dressings and she was sitting with a bucket handy.

Being Saturday it was the locum service so spoke to a woman first, told her all Mum's details and asked if someone could come and see her, we then had to wait for a Dr to ring back which happened about 40 mins later, I explained I was a nurse and he asked me to check things he couldn't have asked any normal family member and said what did I want to happen, would having a script for some anti sickness tabs be enough, I said I would rather she was given the once over by a Dr as we didn't want to end up in A&E during the night, he said someone would come in the next 6hrs,it was now nearly midday, sure enough after about 3 hrs a female GP arrived, examined her thoroughly, tested her wee, Temp,Pulse and BP and they were all normal and the swelling was just trapped wind in her bowel that was taking it's time to move through and not to worry it would settle but if we were concerned again just to ring back and someone would come out to see her again. We went for a stroll round the garden looking at the spring flowers coming through but it was too cold to stay out for long, she was pottering around the house and then sitting for a bit in the hopes the wind would move, I stayed till about 6pm and told her to ring if she needed me again.

This morning she says she still feels bloated but is eating and drinking OK, she had slept well, I will go round tomorrow and Tues. I will go and take the clips out of her wounds for her. I rang her a bit ago and she has visitors and is still feeling not too bad, it takes me about 5 minutes to walk from my house to hers.

So despite having finished work I am still keeping my hand in.

That's wonderful she lives so close to you. Exercise is great to get the "gas" moving. Are you able to get some simethicone (Mylicon) . It helps tremendously with the bloat. Ruth

I have just got back from Mum's and she is much better today, I thought I was taking her wound clips out tomorrow but the hospital says next Saturday, I rang and queried it but the nurse says that is right so I will just change the dressings tomorrow, they only gave her five dressings for 4 sites and I have used 2 of them already,so I will check what I have here.

Maizie enjoys the walk round there but it was raining on the way back so her under carriage was pretty wet when we got home, the refuse lorries were about so I just had her stand and watch them as they are bigger than other traffic she has seen so far, she has been so good for a dog who hadn't been taken out by the breeder who bought her last year and returned her in Dec.

Maizie continues to do well, Mum has taken her for walks to the post box and is very impressed with how she walks on the leash and waits at the kerb to cross the road.

I am having problems getting her to realise she can go and explore when on the extending leash,she still walks close like I expect her to on the normal leash, I will have to take her out coupled to one of the others but don't want them to drag her along,just show that it is possible to go farther afield.

Mum is still not right after her op,she still has the pain she had before her op which was thought to be caused by the now removed gallbladder. What is more worrying is her short term memory is awful,I have voiced my concerns to her Dr so hope she will investigate the matter.

So that is the latest from here.

I'm sorry to hear your mom isn't getting well. My mom is having short term memory issues too, but the doctors have assured us it's not alzheimers. They think it may be a side effect of some of her medicines-I'm hoping they're correct. Check the side effects of her medications-that might be the culprit for your mom as well. Either way, hope she improves soon.

Rhona,

Glad your mom is recovering some physically, but sorry it is taking her awhile. As we know, her mental status could be related to anesthesia effect and will go away. My dad had that complication for about three months post-op from his carotid endarterectomy, but afterwards was back to normal cognition.

Prayers for her,
Deb
