|Daisy is a yorkie aged seven and a half, and weighs
She belonged to my daughter but I took her over and we go for three
walks a day in the local park, or in fields by the river, or up on
downs where you can walk for miles without seeing another person. recently
we walked over the hills into another valley, and there was a new crop
circle that had been made in the wheat. It was really intricate. People
boast of making them, in the dark, with a board and some rope, well,
circles are absolutely spot on, no errors, no footmarks, nothing. I
some water diving rods in the wheat and the rods went beserk. Well,
began to pee a lot and drink a lot and I went with her to the vet and
told me the dog was diabetic, and for a long time we struggled with
was giving her 25 units twice a day and we struggled and the
drawing blood from a vein in her leg, once a week.She now has Humulin
15a.m.and 14p.m.. I am diabetic and take insulin, Humalog 25
twice a day.
19 a.m. and 23 p.m. I have been reducing my weight lately and
have suffered. Last year Daisy had pancreatitis and was in the veterinary
ward for three days, but was o.k. This year she has had colitis
wrapped stools and was put on a low diet, which did not cure it. I

daughters for a meal, and daisy ate a bowl of the cats dry food, and
day there was no mucous, so we fed her more fibre and she is fine.No
the mucous. She has chicken and brown rice in the morning, and fish
brown rice in the evening. She has an ear abscess and drops have corrected
that(although her bg readings were high, as the vet said they would
has a form of conjunctivitis, with discharge from the eyes, and is
ointment three times a day. I got round to taking blood from
her tail after
reading what others were doing so we took the photos.

I have been trying to help another lady(liz) and have told her to come
to the club
and she will get advice on other sites, as she cannot get blood from
tail. So daisy is reasonably well, she never pees indoors, and will
at night if she wants to go, that bark is different from the one when
water bowl is empty, and different when there is someone at the door.
are both quite well, I am 74 in two months and, apart from arthritis
I am a coeliac (no gluten) but that is o.k. I am a Rotarian, just in

Love to all
