My poor dog has had all kinds of health problems. She's 10 and I just decided to stop her medication that was probably keeping her alive. It had just been beating up her body and she hasn't been feeling well for awhile now and has developed some other problems from the drugs. Now that she's off the drugs, she is definitely feeling much better. Normally if I'm not taking her, she bounces off the walls, but this whole season she hasn't even seemed to notice I was going hunting. Yesterday when I put the camo shirt on, she start bouncing around and going to the garage door because that's where we go out to go hunting. I'm really glad she is feeling better and really sad at the same time.
Time to get dress and go. I definitely miss hunting with my pup. I just hope she gets healed up enough that we get out a couple more times this season.
