    Default Been a while since i posted.....

    Alot has been going on lately with both Chaos and myself. I was diagnosed with plantar faciaitis, a bone spur, and something tunnel....like carpal tunnel but its in the foot instead. They gave me an air cast to wear in the day and a night boot to sleep in. It doesnt seem to be helping at all after two weeks. My heel burns and goes numb...its crazy. I think maybe its not getting better because i stand over 8 hrs a day on it at work.

    Now to the most important guy, chaos Hes getting so big. I cant beleive how time has flown. He will be a year old next month, so of course we are planning his party. We had to change his food. He is now on NVI Salmon. He LOVES it and seems to be doing well on it. Hes been through two small bags. Should i get another small bag or just buy the larger one. He seems to do great, his poos are alot harder, thats the only thing that I could see that may cause a problem. We changed because his paws started getting red and his face.....not sure why since he has done great on Fromm all this time. I will try to get some jew pics up tonight. We are going to get his nails and stuff done at Petco today, so this should be fun as he hates any part of grooming and tries to eat whatever u try using on him....brush,clippers, etc. So we will see. Hope u all have a great Sat!!!!

    Sounds like you have had it rough lately. Hopefully they will figure out what is going on with your foot. Chaos is too cute, cant believe he is a year almost already.

    to you Paula..and Chaos too! I also have had the plantar faciaitis..on both feet at the same time! I SO feel your pain. No one understands unless they've had it. Amazing how we take our feet for granted! On a happy note..I am much..much better. I understand it's something that never totally goes away..but I don't have pain anymore and can walk my dogs again! Cannot wear heels...that is so bad for your feet..and one thing my doctor told me..NEVER get right out of bed and walk without slippers (with some support) or something on your feet. I remember thinking..no sh** Sherlock! It hurts too bad! Take care of yourself and follow the doctors orders..you will feel better soon! I'd love to see new pics of Chaos! Good luck at Petco!!

    OUCH on the foot issues.... if you have to stand all day, there is this little cart thingy a girl I work with used for awhile. It is a shelf on wheels that she would kneel on when she had to move around and this way she did not have to put weight on her foot.

    Good to see you here again Paula. Do you have to wear orthotics to help w/the foot problem? i wonder if that would help or not.

    I'm glad the NVI salmon is working out well for Chaos. Since he's happy with it (and your happy), may be best to buy the large bag for the money. I've been buying the 25lb bag myself (boys are on NVI turkey/duck right now but they were on salmon b4 as well).

    im sorry bout your foot. i so hope it gets better. honestly i have been through this with sarah and all her food. i would get one more small bag or even 2 before i would go to a big one. i have wasted and taken back so much food by buying 2 small bags and then buying a big one and boom it doesnt work out. but its how you feel and how allergic your bully is. good luck with everything.

    **waves** Nice to meet you! I'll wait to see Chaos' birthday pics! I'm sure they'll be awesome.
    Good luck with the foot. My mom had that - it's not fun - and she still suffers - even after surgery. Ugh.

    Thanks guys ive been around commenting here and there about thats about it. It was kinda funny yet embarrassing at petco....chaos was BAD at first . Trying to bite the clippers and snip the ladies hands. He was playing....although he dont like clippers. Toward the end he sat there and was the perfect gentleman. Mind u i had been doing all this on my own, so this is only the 2nd time hes ever been to a place like that. Anyway the lady brought him out and said mam have u ever thought of enrolling him in behavior classes thats my boy

    Ah yikes! What's going on with feet lately?! It's crazy how you take them for granted until something goes wrong. I hope it gets better for you, I know what a pain foot problems are! (And how fun those boots are to wear!)
