Sad News

Here is my little Cosmo boy....what a sweet face.  Cosmo is having some issues.  For the past couple of months we have noticed he is having some difficulty with his hind quarters.  Took him to the vet here in Florida and she thought it might be his knees.  Yesterday he had to have an infected tooth removed so while he was under anesthesia they took the opportunity to x-ray his knees and back.  Unfortunately it looks as tho his problem is in the spine.  She didn't give us a very good prognosis....not much they can do and it will probably continue to deteriorate.  However, she admitted she was no expert and told us we should definitely talk to a vet with more experience in this area.  I'm taking his x rays and records to our vet back in Indiana...we'll see what they have to say.  Then there is always Purdue Veterinary Clinic in West Lafayette.  Whatever the outcome, Cosmo's happiness and quality of life are foremost in our thoughts.  At present, he doesn't seem to be having in pain or discomfort.  He has just become more cautious in his movements because he knows something is just not right.   I would appreciate all your prayers....or if you know of anyone or anything that might help us to help Cosmo, please don't hesitate to leave a comment or send me an email.

My goodness, can't believe how the time do fly....guess that is what happens as you get older.  Time goes by faster and faster...or so it seems.  It will not be long and we will be heading back to Indiana.  My sister is coming for a visit the first week in April and we will leave right after.  I sure hope it has stopped snowing up there by then!
Hubby and I have been full timing now for almost 7 years and we have loved is time for a change.  We both feel as though we just have not "traveled" as much as we would like too.  We have seen a lot and been to a lot of places, but we also have spent a lot of time "sitting" in one place.   We want to change year after our "winter" in Yuma, AZ we plan on taking most of the summer and traveling the northwest and I'm hoping the summer after that we can head up into Canada.  Another "change" we are hoping to make in a couple of years is trading our fifth wheel for a motorhome.  The biggest reason for making the change is our big dually truck.  Love the truck for pulling the fifth wheel....but for sight seeing and daily life it's just too big.  We like the idea of being able to tow a more manageable vehicle.  Another reason....the fifthwheel, as we have ours set up, is just for two.  Not saying we couldn't do it, but traveling with more then ourselves and the dogs would be uncomfortable at best.  Now that our son is getting married....well, you get the drift....we are thinking of grandchildren and more family adventures.  It would be nice if we could all travel comfortably together. 
So that's the least for today....
