Since the weather is cooling off, I am working on outdoor projects. I am about to build a room inside the big metal shed so I can empty the small storage shed by the house and move those things to the new little room (walk-in closet, actually). I already have a doggie door going into the shed by the house and I will fix it up so the dogs in that yard have somewhere to go for a nap if they want to.

I took Flash for a short ride yesterday, just around his 2 acre paddock. He is the most agreeable little guy and really enjoys the attention, as he seems to like the company of humans more than horses- very strange indeed. I automatically call him “Rusty” because he looks like a “Rusty” to me and “Flash” does not roll off the tongue easily. So, I guess he is getting a new name.

The lab results came back on the dogs. Carson is at the correct dosage of florinef. I am in the process of reducing his prednisolone and hopefully he will be able to feel well on 5 mg. a day. Hemopet was surprised that 2 of the dogs seem like they no longer need thyroxine and 2 look like they need less than the doses they required a year ago. I think the fact we detox them and also use Jernigan antimicrobial remedies may be allowing their thyroid glands to actually recover. Dr. Dodds, in her book, The Canine Thyroid Epidemic, says that toxins, bacteria and viruses can damage the thyroid gland. It makes sense to me that you can help the gland heal by killing pathogens and using substances that remove toxins, such as zeolite and Jernigan Neuro Antitox.

I soaked and trimmed Rene’s feet today and started cleaning the shed. I am going to be cleaning and rearranging the big shed tomorrow to make room for the walls I will be building after I run to get the lumber and wallboard Monday. I hope to be able to work with Rusty again Sunday.
