    Dog with 9 Lives

    Well yesterday I went home early to deal with contractors...and while outside my dog started to pee and it was a pure red stream. Jordan is 14 and was given 2 weeks to live in May 2006...with surgery.. which he had he was given 3 months to live...so every day now is just a bonus. I thought his kidneys were failing due to complications with his arthritis medicine.

    Anyway... I called the vet and they said to bring in a urine sample. On the way to the vets to drop off the sample... my partner called and said that Jordan had gotten into the garbage...which had some veggie scraps in it...to include skins from roasted beets. So I told this to the vet. The didn't even bother sending it to the lab...as it turns out...there was no blood in his urine..it was the beets turning his urine red. I guess this can happen to people too...fyi!

    Oh my thats funny, beet pee

    I do hope you have your doggie buddy around for a while longer and that he stays as healthy and happy as possible

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"

    I am happy to hear that that the most recent event was not a health issue but a cruel joke by Mother Nature.
