Jake's Insides!

Jake has a developed a cough.  We are still trying to find out why.  First step is X-rays.  Here's Jake's!  There were supposed to be 4, but Jake wouldn't cooperate for the view where he is on his back with his paws stretched out.

Looking at Jake from above
That blob in the middle is his heart :)

From a side
You can see here that Jake's heart is enlarged.
The vet says that his heart is only supposed to be 3 rib spaces big.  
Jake's is bigger.   It's also wonky cause he's a basset.

This is the other side.
That circle?
Jake's elbow.  It not supposed to look like that.
It's arthritis.  He's got it really really bad.

Jake's Cancer Update

Thought I'd update everyone on Jake.  He's doing really well.  All of his lymph nodes have shrunk :)  He's taking pred every other day.  He still won't take his tramadol.  He's very feisty when he sees that.

Jake at Jake's Prairie

So I was flipping through the big Missouri map book that I have and noticed there was a place named Jake's Prairie.  Of course Jake wanted to go see his prairie!

OOO!  A road named after me too!
This is the start of the road.

Is my prairie now.
I marked.
Hee Hee Hee

This more like it!

This my road too!
