POTP Please - Diva Shasta

This has gotta be brief since I am heading off to my own doctor appointment in a bit.

In a way Diva Shasta may be a bit better than earlier yesterday when she wasn't drinking and didn't want to eat much.  Then I remembered I had just picked up a box of P-nut Butter flavored Frosty Paws - added a bit of that to her kibble and mixed in a little water - she licked the bowl clean - that was just a bit of a snack.  Later for dinner, I repeated this but a bit more - again, licked the bowl clean PLUS went over to the water dish and drank quite a bit - HUGE sigh of relief from mom and she is doing all that today.  She is going out to potty fine.  For the most part, it kinda seems like she is depressed - I press in spots to see if there is pain - NATA.   She did trot a bit across the deck with her tail up one time yesterday.  Also yesterday, Shiloh thought he heard something outside - was jumping around and barking and of course little sis, Diva Shasta couldn't be outdone so she joined in altho not quite as much as Shiloh.  

So right now  she is in her crate - the door is open and she goes in and sleeps there on her own.  Sometimes she will sleep on the orthopedic bed.  She goes up and downstairs - she willingly goes out and will even instigate that a couple times.  Since she is eating, going potty and getting around some and not exhibiting pain - altho there were a couple times when I accidentally held on to her by her lower neck, the UNDERNEATH part by her throat, and she did whimper a little - I guess I will just watch her another day and if no better, talk to her vet.  So once again could I please get some POTP for my little Diva - this is so frustrating because she is really exhibiting no clear symptoms.  Thank you.

Ok, gotta go for now - not sure right now where my vision problem is headed.  At times, like right now, it does seem a little improved but that is likely due to having the screen print enlarged.  Or if it goes the other way, I could end up having to have a repeat cornea transplant - that possibility NEVER goes away.
Ok - gotta go

We're thinking of you here. Shasta may have the typical beagle problem of pain in the neck or somewhere in her back. It might be arthritis. A small course of prednisone helps my dogs and it's cheap. I hope they can improve your vision!
hugs from here,
