Thanks Johann

Thanks Deefor and Arrow.


Friday!!! Hurra!!!
OK! Yesterday afternoon my vet called my mom. He had the results. Yes, there is a problem with my thyroid. He says is hypothyroidism. He told my mom not to worry. He says this is not an uncommon problem. He could not find the med here, so he ordered it from a city far far away. We will go to the clinic tomorrow to get the meds and all the instructions to start my treatment. My mom says that the sooner, the better!
Its hot again! This morning we were at 40 degrees and by noon it was 90 degrees. There goes the sweater.... here comes the dress. We went out to walk and we saw these pretty flowers. It is supposed that by this time they sould not be alive, but with this crazy weather the plants are flourishing!
Many days ago we were tagged by many friends for the facts game. I am so late this time! Here they are:
1.- She likes to watch sports on tv.
2.- She hates when she has to drive at night
3.- She wears jeans everyday (yes, every single day!)
4.- She doesn't like to wash her car
1.- Sometimes I refuse to eat my kibbles until my mom adds something to make them tastier.
2.- I like to take lots of naps during the day
3.- I love the sun and always look for sunny spots in my house
4.- I am affraid of being petted by a stranger when we are walking outside.
Have a great weekend and enjoy your time with your families!

Noah the Airedale said...

Wow Lorenza, your mum wears jeans every single day....even when it's really hot....She must love jeans lol.
You look very nice in your pink dress.
We're so glad the vet can help you with your problem. Sounds like you're going to be as good as gold and your mum will be happy.

Oh Lorenza that is such GREAT news about your test results! You will be amazed how much better you feel when you get your thyroid medicine! (Our Servant is a registered nurse, and our manservant is a doctor, so we've learned all about these things!)
You must forgive your clever vet for poking you and give him kisses for his excellent diagnostic abilities!
happy for you-

Wow, does snow come on & off there all the time? Those flowers should definitely be dead a loong time ago! Hehehe!

Snowball said...

I think I am always saying the same thing to you but I just have to say it again. Your dress is simply BEAUTIFUL!!! Its wonderful to have such a smart granny at home!!!

I am sorry to hear about your Thyroid problem. You mum probably should try to read up and know more about this illness in order to know how to help you better.

I think some pup already told you that both Butchy and Snicker have thyroid too so I bet their mum must be an expert in that field by now. Try talking to them. It will help in some ways.

I hope that the medication will cure your illness.


Holly said...

Hot???? Holy cow, I better send you some of my snow! Although, the flowers are sure pretty!


Anonymous said...

Beautiful flowers, cards and dress!

Hope you have a great weekend Lorenza!

Maggie & Mitch said...

We're glad to hear that your treatment is a pill! That's pretty easy! WHEW!
Your flowers are just beautiful! We got snow last night - just a dusting, but it's all white here everywhere so your flowers are our color this morning!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Gorda said...

Lorenza, como siempre esta muy linda, ese vestido te queda muy bien...Espero que se solucione pronto el problema de las tiroides.
Espero que tengas un buen fin de semana.

Marvin - Braveheart Hound said...

those flower pics are amazing! We have no flowers here now, it is cold, wet and rainy in Scotland.

So it was lovely to see your photos.

I am glad you are much better, I am late commenting because my bruv (hooooman version) is using the computer for his college work, so I have to take a back seat with the blogging ;0(

love and licks, Marvin xxxxx

Girasol said...

Muy lindas la flores!
Espero que con el tratamiento estes mejor.

Chinook said...

wow those are really bootiful flowers and a nice pink dress!

Mary-Margaret said...

Dear Lorenza - We are doing our cards this weekend. I think you are on my list, too. Mom is saying that I get lots more cards than SHE does. Like...yeah? That's because I send OUT cards and she doesn't usually have time. It makes a difference. She's looking for labels on the computer now. Like....big chore, huh?

Love ya...Mary-Margaret

PS Nice to know about the thyroid thingy. At least YOU have an excuse. Lucky pup!

4xBs said...

hi Lorenza, we are glad that your mom got your diagnosis and now you can take meds and she will not worry. Right?! we received your card the other day. thank you. we can tell that you were helping your mom a lot when she was making them.

those are some good facts about you and your mom. our mom likes to wear jeans too and hates washing to car. hee hee


4xBs said...

Agatha and Archie said...

Well a little pill is not bad at all!! We can't believe how warm it is!! Those flowers are very pretty! Love A+A

Pugsley, Buster, Cricket & Daisy said...

Glad you finally received word from the vet. Pugsley has hypothyroidism. You will do great with the medications.

Hey Lorenza, I'm glad that your condition can be controlled with medication. Your mum must be sooooo relieved! J x

Lorenza, espero que o teu problema de saúde melhore logo com o tratamento!
Os cartões e as flores são adoráveis!

Stanley said...

Oh, Lorenza Girl!

I am sorry that you're going to have to take meds now, but I'm so glad the vet found out exactly what is going on with you. I hope it's not a big adjustment.

I'm sending you lots of goober smooches to help you feel better!

Goober love,

Koobuss said...

Hi Lorenza!!

What beautiful flowers. i was so surprised to hear that you just took the photos. I thought they were old pictures.

Don't worry about the thyroid. My mom has that. As long as you take your medication you will not feel any different. You won't even know that you have a problem.

I like your answers to the facts game. I will get mine done as soon as I have a chance.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Ike said...

Sorry about the thyroid.
Nice dress!

Xsara ... said...

Hi Lorenza! It's good that the vet caught your illness soon, now you can start the treatment and you will feel better. I repeat, seems like you have an incredible vet! Enjoy the beautiful weather and the flowers with your mom,
love from Barbara and Xsara

PS. you do look beautiful in your pink dress, you know!

Hammer said...

Hi Lorenza
Sorry for not calling by lately .. mum and me have been very busy writing out all our Christmas cards. Sorry also that you have a medical problem, but mum has also heard that this condition is very easily fixed. You look as cute as ever.
Love from Hammer

Seadra & Zoe said...

Hi Lorenza....We got your lovely Christmas card. Thank you so much. We could tell you spent a lot of time on them. You were so beautiful in your Christmas photo.

Wow, you are having 90 degree weather. We are only 20 degrees today.

Hope your medicine gets to you soon.
