      I think his spine is giving up – I will sleep with him tonight and comfort him. He is not obese but vet said it’s a casualty of the breed. He might come good and I am crossing my fingers.

  2. Aw, hope he feels better! He is sweet looking!

  3. Lee says:

    Hope things work out well for Doc. Love that face.

  4. So sorry, Julie. I grew up with dachshunds, and they had spine issues. So sad. Hang in there!

    What a cute little doggie – I wish him a speedy recovery! I know how hard it is when your fur baby isn’t well – take care, and by the way, your blog is wonderful!

  11. It’s not fun when our pets are sick. So sorry.

    At first I thought you were working toward an MD with all the medical issues you have to keep aware of….now I guess you are adding DVM to the list. I’m here for you.

  14. Poor guy. I hope it’s something temporary, and not the spine problem.

      Unfortunately, I think he is reaching the end. The same thing happened a few years ago with his mate, Inky – her back just suddenly went and she couldn’t walk. He is so frail so we are keeping him inside.

    Sending hugs all around for last few posts – would seem strange to “like” them 😉 A friend called me today who spent all day at the vet with an emergency with one of theirs. So hard, they are such a part of the family. They are home again with their dog tonight, who is, as my friend says “on good drugs” lol Unsure also what the outcome will be as diagnosis was unclear. You really are getting it from all sides (literally with the birds this morning 🙂 Hang in there!

  20. bluebee says:

    Oh, that’s sad, Julie – I’m sorry. He has such a wonderful face and intelligent look in his eyes.

  21. ailsapm says:

    Bless his little heart. I am so glad he is wrapped up in all the love I can sense in your words. Sending you and Doc all my love. x

  22. Oh Doc, hang in there, it will get better 😉

    The poor old boy’s looking very sorry for himself. Fingers crossed for you that he pulls through.

    I am so sorry to hear Doc isn’t well. I have two dachshunds myself and I love and adore them so I can imagine you are going through a traumatic time with Doc. My Rosie had a very severe back injury when she was only three. I came home to find she couldn’t walk – couldn’t move her back legs. She’d tried to jump up onto the couch while I was out so she could get a broken biscuit and must have slipped as she jumped off. The vet said she’d need a $4,000 operation and may need to be put down but miraculously she pulled through. She’s now nine and hasn’t had a back problem since. I do hope your Doc experiences a similar miracle xx

      Thank you so much – yeah, Doc is getting over it with steroids but he is around 10 now and suddenly seems very old and very unlike his normal self! Glad your Rosie is okay!

    I’m so sorry to hear about your pup! I like Celi’s Idea about taking him in for a visit with Husband. Maybe it would cheer them both up. That is if the pup is up for the drive. ~ Lynda

    Oh no! Hang in there!

    Poor Doc. What is it?

  28. What a sad adorable face. There seems to be something in the air over there! Hope he makes a full recovery soon!
