Brandon was able to come back HOME yesterday afternoon, and boy was he excited to be back!
The vet said we don't have to monitor his water, since he's not over drinking (knew that already...) but he is on a very strong antibiotic, in hopes that it will keep the infection (if that's what's wrong) gone.
So far, so good - When picking him up yesterday, they told us since he's been on the antibiotics he's had NO accidents and that has followed through for now! It's amazing to have a dog that can wait a whole TWO hours, instead of needing to pee every 5min!
I'm hoping & praying that these antibiotics continue to work (he'll be on them for 3 weeks), since we don't have many other options to try, but of course, we'll have to wait and see.
With being in a kennel for the last 9 days, Brandon is doing extremely well. He settled in fine back at home, and even had to run some errands yesterday. My younger sister even took Brandon into Food Lion with her, to pick up a few things... and they actually worked WELL together! (This is quite a surprise to me, since Brandon doesn't always work well with other people... he tends to be a "one person" dog). I'm so happy he's settled back in so well, and I'm looking forward to working him again!
I will keep you guys updated about Brandon, and he hopefully will be back on the blog & posting shortly.
I also wanted to take a minute to wish Rudy a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Today (March 17th - St. Patrick's Day) is Rudy's SECOND birthday :) Wherever he is, I sure hope he's happy and enjoying himself :) Hopefully I receive some news on him in a few weeks.
On another quick note... I know several of my blogger friends have already noticed, yes my email account has been hacked and I'm so sorry about the spam email(s) that were sent out to any of you guys (sadly, all my previous emails/contacts are currently gone - and I'm unable to send out an apology email at the moment... hopefully yahoo! is working on getting them back for me).
Thanks for keeping Brandon in your thoughts & prayers over the last week, things still aren't for sure whether he'll stay better or not... but I'm hoping for the best!
Enjoy the cute pictures below of Brandon,
Please know that in the below pictures, our puppies shouldn't be allowed to do this... but when (or if) it happens, you always have to grab a picture before giving corrections!! (otherwise you'd miss a really cute photo opportunity!)
