Still missing my Pearl, but things getting better.  I have internet back at my mom's, but things so busy lately I'm exhausted when I have any 'me' time! 

Happy Thanksgiving to ALL everywhere.  We ALL have a lot to be thankful for our family, our friends, being able to accomplish our missions, our compassion for wildlife and animal rights ... Blessings to everyone!

Thank you all for your kind messages and stars!  Still low key after loosing our precious Pearl.  She would always lay by me when I was on the computer and followed me everywhere I went.  I'm lost without her but know she's in a better place.  It will take time.  Still no net connection at mom's but working on it!  Until then wishing all a beautiful week.  Hugs to everyone

10/21/15 Our hearts are breaking but at peace in the Lord and comfort from friends and family.  Our Princess Pearl is now at rest in heaven.  She has only gone Back to the Future!  We will see her again someday.  Thank you all for your messages, hugs, love, and especially your friendship.

10/18/15 Pearl continues to eat, drink, and wag that tail.  Meals are the highlight of her day.  She can no longer stand on her hind feet, her front legs showing signs as well.  Degenerative Myelopathy is a monster.  After sorting my plans to make her a wheeled cart, I realized she will most likely need 4 wheels as her disease progresses.  I found a great link using a used wheelchair for paralyzed dogs   And I found one!  It worked perfectly.  I can't say Pearl likes it much but she was very happy to be upright and explore and go out potty.  But she can't remain in it long - too much pressure with her body laying in it and no leg support.  Now her hind feet/ankles are swelling ... this is not good.  We may not have much time left, so I'm loving her as much as I can.  She's such a good girl.  XO to everyone for all the kind messages and support from everyone. 

10/13/15 Still at mom's 3 days a week. Pearl not really better but still eating.  Just found out that I no longer have Wi-Fi included with my internet service.  So I have no internet at mom's any longer.  Comcast says as of 10/6/15 ... you have to have 'premium' service or higher!  Comcast working their way out of our house quickly.  Moguls.  These companies NEED to be regulated.

10/12/15 Today no better, Pearl can't get up on her feet at all.  I doubt the test to find out if she has DM or not is going to change anything.  All you can do is support them and love them ... they are not in pain, they just can't function.  But it does affect them mentally because they can't get up.  Still wags tail from time to time. 

10/11/15 We had 3 good days, but it's day to day.  Pearl not able to get up last night or this morning.  My arms are getting a work out!  She's still eating and drinking and manages to wag her tail now and then.  Hope tomorrow is a better day for both of us.

10/7/15 Things are not any better.  Pearl is still eating and drinking but wanting to get up less and less.  It makes it difficult to get her to go out potty.  I made a harness out of carpet to hoist her back end.  She is heavy ... 95 lbs.  I can't do it unless she is willing. Today might not be a good day.  I don't think a wheeled cart would help at this point. 

9/21/15  Thank you all so much for you uplifting thoughts and messages!  Pearl did get up today and wagged her tail when I came home.  Went potty, but her back toes are curling under.  But she has such WILL in her and alert (off and on).  Just sometimes lays blank looking at what ever she is facing.  But she's determined and I shall not let her down!  I'll give the best I can.  Love you all!  God Blessed me with my C2 friends!
