RE: Escaping heat next summer?

I definitely want to see the Maine coast before I die. July average temps in Portland are 60/80. Tempting. Go for it! The coast tends to be cooler than inland. It will be humid most days but usually bearable. Depending on how much time you have you can hit different spots along the coast. There are so many little towns with quaint shops and restaurants, you can go out sailing or whale watching and eat lobster to your heart's content. If you head up to Acadia you can get not only the coastal experience but also a taste of what Maine's interior looks like in Acadia National Park. Maine is our "get out of dodge" spot because it's close and has so many different types of areas to visit.

RE: Need help with Jesse-behavior

I was diagnosed diabetic in January. What are you feeding? I would concentrate on a natural meat based food with limited grains of any kind. Add more vegetables. Corn, rice, or wheat products are going to raise blood sugar. Also, try to limit late night eating; however, don't make the dogs go longer than 12 hours without eating. An early morning egg for each might be a good option to help stabalize early morning glucose levels. Think low carb, high protein. AVOID "no carb" diets. We are feeding him vet recommended food. He is now starting to settle in at night. Both dogs go for a BGE tomorrow. We'll see how it looks.

RE: alaska 2021 ???

I've been saying for 3 years "I'm going next year". Now I'm making it 4 years. This is where Nike's advice comes into play-Just Do It!!!!! Long story short when my son was very little he wanted to go to Disney. We told him he had to be 5. Figuring he'd forget I didn't worry. On his 5th birthday he said "mommy I'm 5, you promised we'd go to Disney". I mumbled some sorry excuse like I'd do it tomorrow, he got up, picked up the phone and handed it to me and said "do it now or you will never do it". He was correct. So the following October we went. There's no time like the present. The future is too uncertain.

RE: Is anyone doing anything fun lately?

Helping my son and future DIL plan for their wedding. It's being held at a castle in Gloucester in 2022 and we are so excited!

RE: Out the door....

Sounds like fun! We need to get back to that area again. The flying gets expensive but it's the only way.

RE: Need help with Jesse-behavior

Have they done head x-rays to check for a tumor on his brain? No. Vet doesn't think this is necessary as of yet.

RE: Need help with Jesse-behavior

Drinking and peeing a lot are symptoms of elevated glucose levels. You said that his insulin dose appears to be correct, how do you know? Glucose levels can fluctuate a lot depending on a whole host of variables. Do you have a glucose meter that you can use to test him at home? If not, Walmart has them pretty cheap. Multiple curve tests plus random BGE tests have been done. He was better last night than he's been so we're hoping that it's just some time as his body adjusts.

RE: Clusters of dog diabetes in households-Dr. Doug et al

Maybe those households are over-feeding their pets, and the pets are overweight. Vet indicated this is not the case.

RE: What to make of this......

Load the tools. Once away and safe, notify local authorities of the danger. Then contact your lawyer to get paid for work done. Yup. And then find out who that person trains dogs for and tell them they are not suitable.

RE: alaska 2021 ???

We postponed our trip from August of this year to June of next year. Some business have shut down but many have held on. We were lucky enough that the the lodge in Fairbanks will carry over deposit until next year. Even luckier is the lodge in Lake Clark N.P. had an opening at all for next year that we could slide into. We'd prefer to go later in the summer but are happy to go at all, assuming things ease up.

RE: Escaping heat next summer?

If bugs are an issue then definitely avoid May/June up here. Not only do we have the little biters but the greenhead flies can be vicious. Bugs are an issue all summer long up here, unless it's been very dry.

Clusters of dog diabetes in households-Dr. Doug et al

While I was waiting for Jake to come out of the vet today (all curbside still due to COVID) I happened to talk to the clinic's owner/main vet. He said that he is starting to notice clusters of dogs in households having diabetes, saying right now he has 5 households with the issue. Breeds and age are not always the same. He's puzzled if it's something that might be just around our area or if any other areas have seen this type of thing. Thoughts turn to food and water but not all eat the same food or live in the same town. Anyone else heard of anything like this?

RE: Need help with Jesse-behavior

I now have two vets trying to puzzle it out. He was better last night so we're taking a "wait and see" attitude. The second vet said that maybe using a calming med (gabapentin?) at night might help. On top of it all Jake has now been diagnosed as being diabetic. It's a twofer! On edit: makes me wonder if all the water he drinks is messing with the thyroid drug's effectiveness?? He's been tested a couple of times and it seems fine. The vet is supposed to call me Wednesday and see how he's doing. I'll ask her if that's a possibility. Thanks.

RE: Wolves as Pets

For what it is worth: I live in the high mountains of NC almost on the TN border. We have Coyotes living on the mountain across from us and each night and occasionally during the day we can hear their yapping and barking. We have lived on the west coast and have seen the Coyotes there, which are gray, but much smaller than gray wolves. I was told that the Coyotes here are much larger and often mistaken for Gray wolves and finally several years ago had one cross the road in front of me one night. I was astounded at it's size and would have sworn it was a gray wolf, but the following morning a neighbor informed that what I saw was indeed a Coyote and sees them in his game cam lots of times. Guy Where I lived in MA it was very similar. If you didn't know they were coyotes you'd swear they were wolves due to their size. They may have actually been coy-wolves but without DNA testing we'll never know for sure. Surprisingly enough the coyotes are smaller where we now live in NH.

RE: Escaping heat next summer?

Don't count on escaping the heat in New England. It may be cooler than Texas but can still be very hot. We had multiple heat waves this past summer with many days being well above 90 compounded by high humidity levels. Heading to the mountains or coast of New England may or may not offer some relief.

Need help with Jesse-behavior

Jesse was diagnosed as being diabetic over the summer. We've adjusted his insulin a couple of times and the dose appears to be correct. He also is on .7 Thyrotab twice/day. Over the past few weeks he rarely sleeps more than an hour at a time at night, so he's up constantly wanting water and wanting to go outside. In the a.m. he wants to drink gallons. He pants all the time but he's always done that. He also just got finished another round of antibiotics for a major skin infection. He is better during the day on most days but occasionally he's just really antsy and won't settle down. Bloodwork is fine-no signs of kidney or liver issues. Vet has ruled out Cushing's disease. Before the diabetes was diagnosed he was peeing a lot (as is normal) so I'm wondering if some of the issues at night might be more of a learned behavior. He goes out but doesn't always pee a lot. He is 11 and a half. I am not getting much sleep and it is adversely affecting my health. Although he is not incontinent he has had some accidents in the house, mostly due to our inattention. When he has to go he has to go NOW and if we aren't quick enough he can't wait. Thoughts?
