Pass the B-12 Please

On Sunday we decided to have Morgan put down. On Monday she was better and we were undecided. On Tuesday we put the decision in the hands of Dr B. He said she wasn't ready yet and that the physical problems she was having weren't really physical, but mental. He gave her an injection of B-12, enough for a 100 pound dog. Morgan is 37 pounds.

Tuesday evening Morgan was up and alert and demanding. She ate her dinner and demanded more. She went outside and did the steps by herself. At bedtime after a hearty snack, she beat me to the steps and into the bedroom.

The next morning after sleeping thru till 10, she ate a good breakfast and went for her little walk. She was awake all day, ate like a horse and managed the steps all by herself.

 Today, she's napping more, but still doing well. Rob and I watched her, shook our heads and decided that we would start taking B-12.
Now, here's where you're going to shake your heads and think I'm starting to lose it, but I'll share anyway. I really, truly am convinced that Morgan thinks visiting Dr B will make her better. Many times in the last 16 years she's been sick, sometimes life threateningly sick, and after a visit to Dr B, she perks up and starts acting as if she feels better. Sometimes she's on meds that make her feel better, but sometimes he has just examined her and hugged her and she walks out knowing she'll feel better. I know, you're all saying dogs can't think like that, but I'm sure that Morgan does.
So whether it's the vitamin shot or just the visit with someone she trusts to make her better, she feels better, and that's all that matters.

It's probably a combination of both:) Mom wants to know where the line is set up for that B-12 shot - she wants one too:)

Whatever is making her feel better, we're sure glad that it does! You go, Morgan!

Maybe it's a little of both? Hoorah for Dr. B! I want vitamin B-12 now, too!

We had a friend named Morgan who lived to be 18 through several health scares. He came to be known as Morgan the Miracle Maltese. We think you have a Miracle Morgan of your own.

We well remember those up and down today the day? As long as she's still enjoying life....well, visit the vet.

I think she's got a crush on Dr B.... "a Dr B visit a day keeps the pain away" :)
