I hope you don't mind Clare but I just had to post and say how wonderful it was to see Obi getting back to his usual, happy, bouncy, playful self after his awful illness.
I know Obi has been 'ok' for a couple months now but today when we went for a stroll with dogs and kids, he was positively bouncing. Poor Obi has been lacking in his bounce since his brush with serious illness, understandibly so but fingers crossed on todays performance, he is actually getting back to his old self. Lots of playing with Weller, running around for no obvious reason and chasing the kids and any ball he could find. It was lovely to see, so well done Clare, you and your vets have done Obi proud.:)

Ah thanks Karen and everyone, only just got online after a busy afternoon! Yes, I was so pleased to see him play with Weller like that :D. As you quite rightly say he seems to be getting his bounce back! It was sooooo good to see.

I reduced his steroids down again three days ago and what a difference! I am allowed to reduce them by half a tablet every four weeks. Back in Sep he was on 20mg a day and now he's on 7.5mg. I've not really seen a big change in him until this latest dosage drop. At the beginning I was told the steroids would make him depressed and aggressive and I never saw any agression but noted he was calmer, more subdued. I wouldn't call it depressed but not acting like a puppy, more like a much older dog.

I can't wait to get my bouncy puppy back again!!! :D:D:D I feel like we have missed a big chunk of his puppyhood :( but he is here and that's all that matters. I'm praying like mad that the next 3 months go as well and he will be medication-free. Fingers crossed and a great way for us to start our Christmas.
