The answer is a pack of Yorkies. These are Thumbelina, Winston, Dickens, Reni and Luka. This pack is important to both Kenzie and me. When They rescued me in 2002, the first place They stopped on the way home was the house of the female Yorkie peep. I got bathed and fed (but I still produced taco farts). The female peep was heavily involved in Yorkshire Terrier rescue and had three Yorkies at the time. As with all packs, new dogs enter the pack and unfortunately some leave. Thumbelina on the left was the only one there then and now. The female peep met a male peep who had Yorkies and they married in 2003. This is their combined pack as it exists today. Having someone there on the first night on the way home was a big comfort to me. They’re helping Kenzie now. It’s a fact, Yorkies have the highest incidence of liver problems (mostly liver shunts) and Kenzie has liver problems now. The female peep knows everyone and knows a group in Tennessee that specializes in liver problems and works with the vet department at Univ of Tennessee. They suggested the lactulose. This group has a web site (livershunt.net) and a Yahoo support group (info can be found on their web site). With the Internet, you can find knowledge about almost anything and people to help you. Kenzie and I give a big paws up and thank you to this Yorkie pack.
Kenzie update – He’s not eating that much-about the same. His activity level seems a bit better.
Kyla update – I went to the vet today for my once every 25 day shot for my Addision’s disease. The vet’s scale is a stool pigeon. It said I gained a pound in the last 25 days. When Kenzie didn’t eat all that was put in front of him, I came along and inhaled what was there. It caught up to me-and now I can still get the Kenzie rejects but my own rations will be restricted. The nerve of that stupid tell-all scale is beyond comprehension. I bet it is getting back at me for the times I’ve piddled on it. This means war between me and the scale.
Glad Kensie is moving around, however you need to leave his food alone.
We hope Kenzie is getting a little better – poor puppy. We think the scales all lie. And you Scots have a good deal of fur so it just must be extra fur, right, even though it’s summer? I tried..

Those who indulge, bulge Kyla. Kenzie you need to start eating more. You got to get those taste buds working and taste everything.

Hmmm… I hope my finishing of Floyd’s dinners doesn’t have the same affect… Isn’t a growing lad allowed to indulge?
Apparently you’re not allowed to finish Floyd’s (whoops I mean YOUR) dinner. The nutrition controllers are all over this. We have to sneak it. Don’t let them know. If you can get Floyd to agree, you’re half way there because you have an accomplice. Better yet, you mail me Floyd’s leftovers and I’ll mail you Kenzie’s and we can swear that we did NOT eat the extra food that Floyd (in your case) and Kenzie left. Deal?
