    Thanks everyone for the kind words. Regarding the extra hunger, how did you all handle it? Did you actually feed them more or stick to the schedule? I tried one day to give him one more bowl for dinner to see if he'd get full and stop. That didn't work and he destroyed bowl #2, haha.

    Pics of the day include one of my favorites: his waiting-for-a-treat-face. Also, seeing as we're near Halloween, I've included him in his costume. I'll take better ones soon, but just an idea to see how silly he looks right now.

    Hi, everyone. I hope everyone has been having a good weekend so far. Sorry I've been out again. Admittedly, I've picked up a second job for the holidays to help alleviate the hospital bill Powers got when he first got sick.

    Powers is doing pretty well. Appetite, thirst, and energy are as usual. Only real thing that's happened lately is that he started getting really, really awful diarrhea on Thursday. This is the first time he's ever went #2 in his crate (done it a few times), so it's apparently a bit for him, too. I've had him on the bland diet for right now to see if that'll help calm his stomach. Any other suggestions? He'll be at the vet this week for a follow-up, so I can also check for suggestions from the vet then.

    Thanks, everyone! Here's a picture of him throwing rice everywhere yesterday.

    @fitchalcyone not sure how I missed this thread, but I just caught up. I'm so sorry for all you have been through. Powers is gorgeous. You are in great hands and have been given great advice and support. I just wanted to introduce myself and let you know I'll be thinking and praying for you guys!! Love the costume pics btw. I'm a newer bully owner, so I can't offer too much, but I'll be checking in and praying! He really is stunning!

    @fitchalcyone giving him some pumpkin (not pie mix-pure pumpkin) can also help with diarrhea. So happy he is still doing well.

    Just like quite a few people here I'm just catching up on the adventures of Powers. First I would like to say that you certainly chose a very fitting name for him!

    While my guy does not have HOD he certainly grew very fast when he was a pup -5LBs a week until he was about 9 months. He was constantly hot and whiney. I can't imagine what it must have felt like to grow that fast (and then in Powers case, have bones just doing what they want!). The way we use to cool him down was to have a frozen towel on the kitchen tile and have him lay on it. We wouldn't soak the towel and freeze it but just lightly sprayed it with water and froze it.

    As for the diarrhea, The gang has you covered with the canned pumpkin suggestion - it really works wonders. I did notice you mentioned that Powers was eating more (possibly from the steroids). Over-eating can also cause diarrhea so if he is still pigging out, that might be the cause of the diarrhea.

    Did you ever decide on changing foods yet? Or is it still too soon for you to start that transition given all the other things going on with him right now?

    When Curls was a puppy he had constant soft serve poop - not hard, not watery, somewhere in between and I was feeding him Buffalo Blue Wilderness, which is rated fairly well. I went on a limb and decided to change his food to Fromm's pork and peas and since then he has had perfect #2's

    Anyhow, I hope this helps and please keep us posted on Powers. He is a lucky guy to have someone like you!

    Hi, everyone! I'm sorry I've been quiet for some time, just been very busy with work.

    Powers has been doing very well. Still on Prednisone, but a lower dose and he hasn't been sick since the last vet visit. His energy and appetite are usual, and I think he's adjusting fine to his growing pains. The only issue I'm having now is that he's having little bald patches pop up where he's losing a little hair. The vet had seen this as maybe an immune system thing tied to his bone condition, and I'll see what she thinks about it the next time I take him in. Do you all have any experience with hair loss? What did you do to address it?

    I don't have many pictures of him lately, but here's a fun one that you all may like (you'll have to click to see it on this one). I hope you all have a wonderful holiday, give your Bullies extra hugs and treats. They are truly one-of-a-kind...
