    Sparky continues on a positive path so far, but of course, I'm far from ready to let my guard down with him.

    He's sleeping well at night and his appetite was somewhat improved today. I did go out yesterday and get him some different dog food, so maybe it tasted better than the same old/same old to him. I'm certain I won't have a problem getting him to eat tonight, since I'm roasting a chicken and making scalloped potatoes for the family dinner. He goes bonkers over fresh roasted chicken! Almost no coughing and his breathing is much more normal than it was. It's a beautiful early Fall day here today - nice and cool and clear and no humidity, so I decided to get him outside for a little exercise without overdoing and making him too tired. We slowly walked the perimeter of the whole yard, which equates to almost 1/4 mile, and he thoroughly enjoyed smelling and checking everything out. Luckily we didn't run into any snakes back along to tree lines! Now he's taking a nap - must have tired him more than I thought.

    So far he's going in the right direction - now all he needs to do is stay on track. Of course PT prayers are always welcome and very helpful..Thanks all.

    Sparky continues to do basically well, tho nothing consistent. His appetite is fairly normal, but the coughing and respiration is back and forth between good and kinda lousy. One good thing tho, is no more fainting or seizure like episodes.---------knock on wood!!! Yesterday was the most he has coughed in almost a week - but then it was rather warm and somewhat humid too. Strangely enough tho, he didn't cough all night and only a couple of little ones so far today. I have all the fans running in here too, so that helps him. It's just not uncomfortable enough to turn the a.c. back on. We've been going for our afternoon perimeter walkies too and he really does enjoy that, but yesterday was a bit too warm I thought. As long as the rain holds off, we'll go out again today.

    So that's where things stand for now, and I continue to just take whatever comes, a day at a time. What else can I do??? Please continue to keep Sparky in your prayers. Thanks, friends,,,,,

    Was just wondering how things were going with Sparky when I spotted this post. Glad the little fuzzbutz is doing well again, let's hope things stay at this level.

    The big heart that beat in my sweet little guy, beats no more. At 3:15 a.m. today, Sparky's soul left for Rainbow Bridge. I will be forever grateful that I was able to be with him and comfort him in his final minutes here on Earth

    I will post a memorial to him when I can think straight. My heart is shattered. It's raining here this morning - even the Heavens are weeping with me..............
