Putting Our Heads Together – BT Tinkles

5558375507_92666f6891_z

A lot of things are bringing me down, but one of them is my elderly Boston Terrier. First, a little snippet. Someone asked in the last post about BT, what BT stood for. Brace yourselves for the creativity here… it stands for Boston Terrier. Before you judge Tim and I for the world’s most terrible dog name, you should hear the back story. Although I …

A BT Sleeps Tonight

20476421068_2edc0fb218_c

In the past year, BT has started sleeping really soundly. We asked the vet about it at her annual in the spring, and his response was “That’s what happens when they hit double digits.” He said it was nothing to worry about, and that lots of pet owners with elderly dogs ask the same question. We got used to this silently sleeping BT problem, and …

The Dogs Take On Downsizing

There have been lots of challenges and adjustments in the new apartment. For me, I’m still struggling with the change of being located in the center of cool culture to now living in a sea of toll roads and Chili’s restaurants. PS – I do not like Chili’s. Anyway, the dogs are doing well overall. I figured Eliot would adapt pretty quickly because even though he …

One year ago, my little fur family got turned upsidown when my springer spaniel, Eliot, attacked our elderly Boston Terrier, BT.  As a result of the attack, BT had several puncture wounds in her head and damage to her eye.  Though we worked closely with an emergency vet and our regular vet, after a week we decided it was in BT’s best interest to have …

Life With an Elder BT

I haven’t talked much about BT lately, which is a travesty.  Last time I left off with her story, we were having her damaged eye removed.  That surgery went well despite her age and significant heart murmur, so we were pleased and thought the entire situation would be behind us. Then several weeks later, Eliot attacked her again with no warning.  Her other (aka only) eye …

Selfie Sunday – Goodbye to the Eye

12274840553_08ffd5d0a5_z

Selfie Sunday could almost be totally re-named to BT Sunday… but it’s time for another BT update.  I was hoping to have really good news regarding her eye, but I really don’t.  It started going downhill Friday afternoon.  Tim took her to the vet Saturday morning, and we’ve scheduled a removal this coming Tuesday. I’ve kept pictures out of these posts for various reasons, but …
