Just an update on Jasper and Daisy (formerly Raggedy Ann). Daisy is doing
unbelievably well and now is weighing in at about 80 lbs and shows no sign of
stopping. All her health problems have been resolved and she can now be the
great dog she was meant to be. Not bad for a starved, emaciated, little
bloodhound. She generates interest among all those that she meets because
bloodhounds are not seen this far north very much and her personality is
awesome. She is just a love bug.
Jasper has developed some problems with his hips but is doing well on medication
and is receiving the best vet care available to him. He is an active happy dog
and we are determined to give him the great quality of life he deserves. The
vets at U of P were ecstatic to see him as they never get to treat coonhounds
since most are put down rather than receive any type of treatment. His hips
would be happier if he was a little less active but what can we say, he's a
typical coonhound. He, too, is loved everywhere he goes.
They are both great dogs and we are lucky to have them!
