      The old swimmin' hole

      We haven't been to the beach very much during the summer due to Ram's increased panting this year. The swimming hole has been a better option as there are trails with lots of shade.

      During a visit to the vet a couple of weeks ago for a Tramadol refill he was panting because of treats but she didn't hear anything in his panting that sounded like LP or felt it was necessary to do any tests, he's just an excited lunatic. Although she did suggested that we try Metacam for 2 weeks to see if the panting was from pain and then test his blood. After the 2 weeks his blood tests showed an elevated sdma value over his previous tests from the spring. I didn't notice any difference in his panting or movements while he was taking the Metacam so I'm not taking the risk and we've gone back to Tramadol. We're still doing the underwater treadmill once every three weeks with laser for his elbow and a huge bonus is that they do his nails too.





      We've never met a Boxer who wasn't a jerk.






      He's just started to grow the crazy long white brow hairs.

      The swimming hole looks to be a favorite spot. Hopefully it's works to be a good exercise spot without undue panting.

      That's a nice spot. Too bad about your Boxer comment but we have met some weirdos too. Not all, some Oban just about fell in love with.

      what a great swimming hole (with shade!) He's looking great

      Glad the vet doesn't feel it's LP (or at least nothing to worry about) and that it doesn't seem to be pain either.

      Ram is looking good ole man eyebrows and all

      Your swimming hole looks like the place we used to go on Indian creek. All my kids loved to swim there as parts of it were under shade too. Just know a couple of boxers they are a different breed for sure. Some loveable some not so much.
