So Lucy turns eleven on March 11th. I'm a bit early but just in case I get busy I thought I'd share some of my favorite pictures.

On the balcony (in her litter box) where we lived for her first six months.

Thanks, yellow dogs are sure easier to take pictures of. One of these days I'm gonna pull out the giant rubbermaid bin of old pics and scan a bunch of my favorites.

How old was she when she got whiter?

TeriM
March 8th, 2007, 02:34 AM
She got white really fast when she was diagnosed with liver problems (chronic active hepatitis - and no, she doesn't drink :o ). That was 2002 so she would have been around six.

They only expected her to live maybe six months :eek: . Vet wanted me to switch her to special food :rolleyes: but I decided to continue with the raw and a bunch of holistic vitamin stuff (along with a course of regular meds) and amazingly enough the liver regenerated and she is still with us :cloud9: .

Happy Birthday to Lucy! It's wonderful that her liver regenerated (amazing, too:thumbs up ). You must have breathed a huge sigh of relief when the 6 month mark passed.

Great photos-I love the puppy pics. :cloud9: Lab puppies are just so darn cute (not that I'm biased or anything:D ).

Happy Birthday Lucy!:cloud9: :) Eleven on the 11th and what a beauty you remain!:lovestruck: :lovestruck:

Lovely pictures of your gorgeous girl,Terri! Her puppy pics are just too adorable, and some great scenic and action shots you've included!:highfive:
All so nice to see..:)


Have a question, Terri? Is the "whitening" of the coat at a fairly rapid rate a sign of possible liver disease in dogs? :confused:

Thanks for the compliments.

I think it is more just because her system was quite traumatized and she was so sick for a while. Kinda like when people get really sick and they go grey or their hair falls out. One of these days I'll have to dig out some shots over that time frame and see if I really remember the change like it happened :o .

It is also quite common for dogs to have greying faces and muzzles as they age.

oh, okay... I understand fully what you are meaning now, Terri.:o
From the trauma to the system of being ill.

My little dog Percy has gotten just so gray in recent times, I've really noticed it... and others comment on it too.. (what an old dog that is.:D)

But I just took this to be the natural aging process. He's coming up to 12 approx... but could be 13 or 14 too..:shrug:

He's totally healthy, and hasnt slowed down a bit. That's all thats important.:goodvibes:

So he was black a year or two ago. Now I just call him the silver streak.:D

Yeah Cassie is three and a half and within the last year her face is after getting a lot whiter. So much so that when you look at pics from last Christmas compared to this Christmas you can see a huge difference.

OK, Just cause Frenchy asked :D .

Now I see them ! :thumbs up She's such an :angel: love the one where she jumps off the dock. Does she still do it ?

TeriM
March 11th, 2007, 08:18 PM
That's the dock at hubby's uncle's place in Summerland. She loves to jump off there every year and she can even climb up the ladder by herself (although prefers if you grab her collar a bit so she doesn't fall back). Every summer it is quite the show when we visit :D .
