Lazarus dog

Bruno back out of kennels today, immediately resumed his position on the sofa. The people in the kennels hadn’t seen him since end of August & were impressed at how much he’d improved since then. “He’s like Lazarus!” the woman declared

Back out

Bruno has been in kennels for over a week. He’s been doing well in there, he likes the people and enjoys going in, but it was good to have him back. His head tilt is still evident but his walking is better.

Head tilt

After his second stroke in a month last week Bruno has been left with a head tilt. He had a check up with the vets today. He seems to have pulled through, he still falls over a bit and bashes into things, but he’s not suffering. So immediate concern has passed, we’ll just see if he has another stroke.

Bruno watch

Bruno went back to the vets yesterday – it was definitely another stroke. Vet said they can recover from this. He walks in circles & falls over a lot but isn’t particularly distressed. Anyway we’ll monitor him over the weekend and he sees the vet on Monday again. We’re entering “difficult decision” territory, but he might pull through.

Dog down

Bruno had a rough night – his leg paralysis hit again and he was stumbling around, crashing into things. He was very distressed and I could only get him to sleep by holding him.
Took him to vets and she thinks it might be brain tumour. It’s certainly worse than a few weeks ago when he recovered quickly. He seems very disoriented, so we’ll see how it goes.
