Bambi--How I love this old girl

Hi Blog Friends, I tried to load pictures of Bambi this morning and I keep getting service unavailable!! What else is new !!!!! I wanted to talk about her today. She has Arthritis mostly in her lower back. I give her a joint formula pill for that. I also give her a digest pill everyday. Every morning, if I forget she reminds me. She will stand and point at the pill bottles with her nose. I also give her a nutritional oils pill everyday and she loves that pill a lot. That pill has Fish Oil and Borage seeds oil and Flax seed oil in it!! I give her Devil's Claw, that is for Arthritis in the lower back. I give her a Turmeric Extract pill for inflammation in the body. The last two pills has to have a little bit of extra virgin olive oil on them so she will swallow them. She loves to take pills I think because she sees me taking supplements everyday and has for 13 years.
She got in the cat food about 8 or 9 days ago and when she does her lumps come up like a balloon in just 30 minutes. I takes days to come back down!! But they are way down again. Bambi is 13 years and almost 8 months old now~~~~~ With nothing really bad wrong with her!!!! I think she will make it to 14 and maybe even more!! fingers-crossed !!

I just went back and tried again to load the pics and they made it!!
Love coming your way, Bambi & Fern


  1. Bambi is sure a sweetheart and clearly has a happy home. It's hard watching them get all these senior problems, but it's apparent you are doing all you can to make her comfortable! Toby's the same way--he's lost muscle in his back end and slips on the wood floor now. But, he's happy, as Bambi is, and that's all we want!!

  2. Good Monday afternoon, Fern. Bambi is such a precious dog! You take such good care of her, making sure she gets all the right stuff into her body. Gracie has started a pretty strict diet herself. It's hard since she's used to eating almost anything. I'm hoping it makes a big difference in her health though. Hugs to you and Bambi...

  3. Hello Miss Fern, Bambi is a beautiful girrrl fur sure and you take such good care of her.

    I am getting that ERROR 503 thingy too.

  4. Hi Fern! What a lovely, lovely girl Bambi is! I continue to find myself so taken with her, and so hope that she'll continue on for her next birthday and beyond--I have a feeling that with your great care, she will! Give her a hug from all of us!!!!

  8. I never heard of giving Devil's Claw to dogs with arthritis so I hope to remember that piece of info for when our client's ask what they should give to their older dogs. I love that you give Bambi lots of supplements rather than relying on the advice of the vet (who are right most of the time but can be expensive too)!

  9. Bambi is such a beautiful girl. We hope she lives for a good long time!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  10. Fern-
    You take such good care of Bambi girl :)
    Stanzie takes some anti inflammatorys for arthritis as well. She gets to running around and digging like a puppy and forgets that she is not as young as she used to be!
