Top dog.

i'm not worthy :: 9/52

Kaleb might be getting 52 Weeks for Dogs on FLICKR to himself this year,
but let's not forget who the REAL top dog is.

9 weeks later :: 3/12/Jane

That's right bitches. I'm #1.

Jane continues to amaze us. It's now been almost 6 months since she's been on her meds and dignosed with CHF - we know she is in advanced stages of the disease, but she's like a Timex watch "Takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin". After her bad bout a few weeks ago, she has been raring to go. A combination, of her regular meds, some chinese herbs, vitamins, gentle massage, and doing some training to keep her upbeat (which she loves) seems to be doing the trick.

It's been interesting trying to figure out what she wants to eat ... usually cooked chicken and veggies, but now she is actually eating faster than the other dogs.

I made her something I call "Janey's Magical Meatloaf"

1 lb extra lean Ground Beef
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup Pumpkin
1 egg
and 1/4 tsp of Cinnamon

... I put them in mini muffin tins and cook 'em up, and she gets one per meal - or more if she feels like it. She friggin' loves them.

If anyone has any hard to resist healthy doggie meals with lots of calories (and not fat)... let me know!!

I'm so glad Jane is doing so well! That looks like a yummy doggie meatloaf--no wonder she likes it so much.
