Mina ate like a champ yesterday and enjoyed her walks and barked at everyone like a dog who feels pretty good. It was delightful.

I did not give her the last dose of Mirtazipine last night because I wanted to see how she’d handle food today.

This morning she woke me at 3:15 to go outside, and I noticed the level in her water bowl was down so she must’ve been warm overnight. But she made up for it by eating her entire breakfast and greedily swallowing her peanut-butter coated meds and supplements. We didn’t take a long walk this morning because of the rain, so I hope she gets a chance for a good stroll with Auntie Sherrie or Auntie Lolo (or Uncle Robb, who took care of her yesterday afternoon).

Rest week goes by so fast.



Mina ate until 1 a.m. She was an eating machine. That’s great, but I want her to eat during the hours I’m typically awake, and that doesn’t include 1 a.m. I was up late because I fell asleep during a movie, then had to cook chickens and ground cows, then I wanted to shower. So we got to bed around 1:30 a.m. and up again at 6 a.m. to walk Mina and walk/feed my neighbor’s boy, Turk.

The Mirtazipine works great but I’m holding off on it tonight until bed time. That means she may not eat much today, she’s only eaten a little of the ground cows (made with parsley, garlic powder, local eggs, and these tiny orange tomatoes all pureed), so far.

But yesterday, after the Mirtazipine, she polished off seven, or was it eight, jars of organic baby food, about three-quarters of a cup of freshly cooked dead chickens, and probably less than half a cup of the ground cows.

We’ll see what the rest of the day brings. Pictures of Mina and the cows on Deb’s blog!
