I have one child, a 4.5 month old, and 2 in diapers. How can this be, you might ask?
My 6 year old poodle/chihuahua mix. She was born with degenerative disk disease. We didn't know anything about this until she hurt her back the first time. The Dr. warned us that it was likely to happen again and each time it would get worse. She recovered fully the first time, and also the second...we weren't so lucky the third. It happened when I was pregnant, about 2\two weeks before Aiden was born. We took her to the Dr., her back legs weren't working at all. She gave her some steroid shots, and some oral meds. When those didn't work...she suggested we "put her to sleep." Not because she was in pain (tests showed that she wasn't) not because she had anything life threatening....but because her back legs were never going to fully function again, and she wasn't going to be able to control her "bathroom business.".
No way was I going to do that. I asked the vet if she could live a happy, somewhat normal life. She replied "Yes, but it's going to be a big "inconvenience". So? I don't only love my dog when she's "Normal" It's not like my feelings changed now that she's "Broken."
We make the best of it, and Sammie and Aiden share diapers
Just a random little story
