Molly Update

Hi, bloggers and blogettes:


Sarah here with the latest on Miss O'Mally. Test results show struvite crystals and microalbuminuria in her urine.

Albumin is an important protein that is found in blood, but not normally in the urine of healthy dogs. Microalbuminuria is the presence of small amounts of albumin in urine. Finding small amounts of albumin in the urine MAY indicate underlying health problems, and MAY be an early warning signal of renal (kidney) damage or disease.

There are several conditions that can cause microalbuminuria (diabetes, high blood pressure, inflammatory diseases), but since her blood work is otherwise normal, we're not sure why she has it. The struvite crystals are a result of all the bladder infections she's had.

Anyhoo, she is now on a blood pressure pill, an anti-inflammatory and her usual pee pee pill. Her new diet consists of a boiled eggwhite and Hill's prescription s/d kibble. I am happy to say she loves it!

While she does not have "confirmed" kidney disease, I wouldn't be surprised if it progresses to this. (She is a geriatric canine, you know!) However, her medications and diet should make her condition manageable for some time. Most importantly, she is happy and is active!

Hey, she went from this (her first day with us last March).....






To THIS!






Yep, we're just taking life one day at a time here at Brandt Drive Home for the Visually Impaired.


PS Go say hi to our friend, TicTac! She and her brothers are cuties, and their parents are great!

Singin' the Bladder Blues

Hi, everybody......sigh.......


Molly O'Mally here. Remember my bladder surgery in August? Well, I'm sorry to say that things still aren't right. For some reason, my bladder is not getting "the signal" to do it's thing. I can still pee pee - just not as much as I should.

Mommy has found a wonderful vet who knows a lot about Pugs. We visited him last weekend so he could "drain my main vein". I feel better, for now, but I keep getting full of pee pee and my breath smells like an outhouse. That's not good! Blech!







Anyway, mommy and I are waiting for a call from the doctor. He said he wanted to consult with a veterinary urologist at Purdue University. We sure hope they can figure this out!

Speaking of sickyness, mommy's not been feeling well.....some kind of nasty head cold that's moved into her chest. She sounds like a pack of howling wolves when she coughs.

Yeah, she's what you kids call "a hot mess".

If Ya Like It Then Ya Bettuh Put a Ring on It!

Hi, everybody!


It's everyone's favorite single lady, Molly O'Mally!


I am SOOOOO excited! Mommy went shopping yesterday with Aunt Laura. While mommy was whining about not being a size six anymore, Aunt Laura found me a jacket and dress!
(Sheeeesh, mommy.....how long has it BEEN since you were a size six??? Ninety-eleven years??? Get over it, already!)


Anyway, back to ME. Some of us have maintained our girlish figures and are proud to show off the goods!!!


Here I am primping before my photo shoot.....






I was a little shy at first......






But it didn't take me long to warm up to the camera!






Look at Hank trying to get in on MY face time!






Check out my new jacket! Perfect for those chilly pug meetups!









I don't like wearing hoods, but mommy says "beauty is pain".






Whew! Modeling is hard work! I'm going to take a well-earned binky break. Hope you all enjoyed the show!
