The following causes are very important to me so we have set up these fundraisers to help out my fellow doggies. These designs are available on shirts and other gift items and all commissions earned go to each cause.

Find A Cure For IMHAI was diagnosed with Evans Syndrome in 2006. It is a combination of IMHA/AIHA (Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia/Auto-Immune Hemolytic Anemia) and IMT/ITP (Immune Mediated Thrombocytopenia/Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura). I was hospitalized for over a week and received numerous blood transfusions and a cocktail of immunosuppressants to save my life. I was weaned off the medications due to complications such as Cushings Disease but after a few months off the drugs, I relapsed again so I am currently back on medication. I continue to fight this disease everyday. There is no cure for this disease so please help support the fight for a cure. Meisha's Hope Fund and Morris Animal Foundation has teamed up to find a cure for IMHA with Autoimmune/Immune-Mediated Hemolytic Anemia Fund #338. Immune-Mediated Hemolytic Anemia is a serious blood disorder and scientists estimate over 50% of dogs diagnosed with it will die from the condition. Affected dogs show signs of weakness, lethargy, exercise intolerance and anorexia. This deadly blood disorder occurs when something triggers the dog's body to attack its own red blood cells. Despite aggressive immunosuppressive therapy, this disease has a very high mortality rate. Many dogs die shortly after diagnosis, so an effective early treatment is critical. All commissions earned from this design will go to the Meisha's Hope AIHA/IMHA Fund #338 at Morris Animal Foundation.

American Eskimo Dog RescueEveryday, people are working together to rescue Eskies and to help them find their forever homes. Show your support for these wonderful people and organizations. All commissions earned from this cartoon American Eskimo dog design will go to Eskie Rescue.

Opt To AdoptMommie adopted me in 2005 and she always says it is the best thing ever. Loving dogs are waiting in shelters around the country to be adopted. Opt to adopt and make a loving forever home for these poor dogs. All commissions earned from this design will go to local animal shelters.

Thinking Of Getting A Dog

Taking care of a dog is a BIG responsibility. Dogs are totally dependent on their masters their entire lives so there are a lot of things to consider. Here are some things to think about before getting a dog.

Toothless Wonder

Gee, I sure am getting old. The other night as we were getting ready for bed, I plonked down onto the bed and was about to doze off when I suddenly found something in my mouth. I chewed on it coz I thought it was food. Eventually, Mommie heard me chewing something and investigated. She got a hard object from my mouth. It took them a while to figure out that it was a tooth. She opened my mouth to check inside and found that my back molar on the bottom was gone. So that was what it was. Sigh! My tooth fell out just like that. I guess I should be happy it did not hurt or bleed or anything. But what if my other teeth fall out too? I don't want to be a toothless wonder.

To make me feel better, they took me out to an Asian strip mall for Chinese New Year. We sat outside a restaurant and watched the festivities. There were lots of people at the strip mall and there was a dragon dance going on. Mommie was planning on taking my picture with the dragon but they started lighting firecrackers. I was so scared at the sound, I jumped right out of my chair. It sounded like guns firing every which way. Mommie picked me up and took me around the corner. She did not know there were gonna be fireworks and kept apologizing for scaring me. After a bit, I calmed down and we proceeded to have lunch. She gave me some of her bread so I think that made it all worthwhile. Teehee!

Also my latest bloodwork from a couple of weeks ago has my PCV at 45 and my platelets at 43K. So still pretty much the same for the past few bloodtests. My platelet count is low coz the doc said they are clumped but since I am not showing any symptoms she said it should be ok not to redo the test. My liver enzymes are still elevated. I am drinking and peeing much more but she said nothing in my bloodwork explains it. I am just so thirsty all the time. I am going through my peepad supply pretty fast these days.

Hi Casper, we're so sorry to hear about your tooth. I hope no more fall out. How fun that you were able to celebrate Chinese New Year in style. Firecrackers are so scary! We hope you get better.

Love,

Sorry to hear about your tooth, Casper! My cat had all of her teeth removed last year because she had gum disease and she is just fine now! Being a Toothless Wonder isn't so bad, except you can't chew on nice things like Greenies anymore! I hope that doesn't happen to you though!

Oh Casper! I'm sorry to hear about your tooth, but don't worry too much. I lost about half my teeth when I was living as a stray on the streets of Detroit (pretty awful that was, let me tell you!) and I still chew and eat just fine. Mommie either brushes or swabs them every single night, which I don't care for much (although she gives me treats before and after), but I haven't lost any since I came to live with her so I guess it's working. So don't worry; I'm exactly your age (turning nine on Valentine's Day) and I do fine with just half my teeth. You'll be fine too--just as adoable as ever!!

The tooth sounds a little scary but I bet you will be fine without it. Just be sure mommy mentions it next time you see the vet. Please keep taking good care of yourself... we want you to stay healthy so you can continue to do fun things...like celebrate Chinese new Year! I would jump at the fire crackers, too! But I am glad things calmed down and ended with a nice meal.

Casper,
My big brother Mack lost some teeth like that. Mommy was worried, and she had the vet clean his teeth after that. She pulled three teeth out. He was OK, but it is scary. Does Mommy get a kidney panel done when blood work is done? Mack loved the K/D dog food. I hope that is not it because you shouldn't have to deal with kidney stuff with your other stuff.

Thanks all! So far the other teeth are still intact. My doc has not found any kidney issues but she did say my extreme thirstiness might be a first sign but since the blood test did not show anything I should be ok for now.

And, I got a prize for my fallen tooth. The tooth fairy at Dog Lover's Photography Club on facebook gave me a gold award for my Valentine's picture. Mommie says that's coz we put my tooth under the pillow. :D
