Hi and Welcome to Maddisons Blog.
First of all let me introduce myself. I am Maddison, known affectionately round here as “The Moog”. I am an 8 year old female Rottweiler who was handed over to the nice people at Freshfields Rescue Centre just outside of Liverpool (http://www.freshfieldsrescue.org.uk/). If you are considering a pet then give them a lookup as there are many animals there who would be very grateful for a loving home.
Anyhow I now live with my new family on the Wirral and have some new friends.
Its taken me a while to post this as its been very hard to do.
We lost Moogle back in May. in the end her liver gave up but to the last she was the happy “moogalicious” girl we came to love very much indeed. Losing her left a huge hole in our hearts and our lives and we will certainly never forget her. She was only with us for a short time but in that time made a massive impact on us and all she met. She never showed any signs of aggression even when she was obviously in fairly major discomfort and was such a sweet natured dog in every way.
Whilst her condition when she came to us was managed well its impact on her organs/joints etc cant be disregarded and eventually her liver just stopped processing the proteins her body needed to survive.
Run free Moogle, I will always remember you – you truely were an inspirational dog and you had a positve impact on everyone who met you.
you may have noticed a lack of updates recently.
Thats because I am not allowed to tell anyone my final weight until the PDSA announce it. I have been promised a chicken dinner if I keep my gob shut so … zipped.
You can read my story however in the July edition of YOUR Dog. One of the humans will get round to uploading a scan at some point but we will have to wait until the August edition comes out first or we may get a spanked botty.
But I am doing well and am enjoying the summer. I may get the picture taking human to take some more photos if the weather stays nice.
still cant say what my final “official” weigh in weight was. Need to wait until the PDSA announce it but there are some pics in my gallery that show just how much I have lost.
Oh and as soon as the humans work out how to do it there is a video clip of me treeing a squirrel.
Well this was my second to last weigh in for the PDSAs contest and despite being on the steroids for mankyskinitus I lost…
So I am still on target for hitting the weight we thought I should be by the end of June (42 Kilos). So its extra Moogball training and squirrel chasing in order to make sure I keep on track.
Graph thing below:
Well it appears that I am going to be in one of the national Dogs Mags soon so today there was a bit of a photo shoot. Once they have been processed I will get the camera human to upload them.
I have a patch of wet eczema on my neck and it dont ‘arf pong – and it itches like buggery too.
I had a blood test last week and I have had a reaction to the bit where I was shaved. So I am currently on some steroids and anti biotic tablets to sort it out.
The good news is my levels of thyroid gubbins is good so the soloxine is working and my meds don’t need altering.
Been a nice day today so had some pictures taken in the garden. The change in maddison since last year is pretty astounding:
This was July 2010
and this was today:
It has been brought to my attention that the humans have been neglecting to put up recent pictures of me. This will be rectified in the next few days. The picture taking human will be taking some new shots when the weather improves and will then update the gallery.
