Betty's 3 month anniversary Gotcha Day

Okay, so it's only been 3 months today since we got Betty. But the parents are most happy about the fact that Betty has also been seizure free for 3 months too. That's a pretty big deal around here.

Mom really got her on the 12th, but since they didn't gets home until after midnight I guess it's officially the 13th, but who's really keepin' track...

When Betty gots here, she was kinda loopy from all her seizure medications. Mom says it's a real balancing act to get just the right amount of medicine to control Betty's seizures, but not makes her stoned like too.

Our super wonderful vet Dr. Stephens researched a better medicine for Betty that wouldn't make her act all loopy like the Potassium Bromide does. It's called Keppra. Now, Betty takes 100mgs less of the PB per day and she's already actin' like a crazy woman! Me and Stella can't imagine how she's gonna be when she's off it.

Whenever we goes to see Dr. Stephens, mom gets leaky just 'cause she's so happy that Betty is feelin' better and behavin' more like a typical Frenchie. We don't know why she get's leaky when she's happy, it's kinda confusin'.

She's a wild woman!

We all loves her, specially mom.

Mom wants to remind everyone how rewarding it is to rescue. So she attached this video our friend sent her. She rescues all kinds of pets but mostly Bichons. Get your tissues ready 'cause it'll make ya leaky!
Lot's of hugs,
 Gunther and Stella

We didn't need the video to get all leaky! Our M gets leaky with all rescues especially when there are serious health risks involved, like with Betty. This is all too good. Even the vet looks like a kind human. As for the momma shot...precious. Cheers! To Betty!!! and those you gotcha-her and went the extra mile to make her life even more comfortable. Mwahs

betty, we are so happy that you found the best forever home. that video did make me weepy. we went to the seattle kennel club show today and saw people from the shelter where we got ollie. we told them all about his happy tail. he is the best dog ever and we are so happy to have rescued him.
big hugs,

Tweedles -- that's me said...

We are so happy for Betty, for so many reasons.
A forever home where she is smothered in kisses and also no seizures. What a wonderful doctor to care so much to help.
My moms went to a rescue last weekend- and they said they would have gotten another Tweedles right then and there- but that was not the way it worked.
They will think some more and try again- but Betty- we are so happy for you.

Betty makes Momma leak.

Giving the gift of unconditional love to rescue doggies makes Momma leak.

That video made Momma leak.

I think I need to call a plumber. My momma has a leak.

Priscilla said...

Has it been 3 months already? My how time flies. She just seems like she's been your's forever.

And seizure free!

Big hugs to you for doing such a good job. She just needed a little luvin.

Melissa said...

Congrats! Sounds like you have a great life ahead of you Betty!

I will have to mention Keppra to my mom; her chi has seizures and PB makes him fat and lazy. Not good when you are 7lbs!
