Happy 12th Birthday Macy!

My little princess dog turned 12 on Thanksgiving day this year!  I can't believe I have had her since I was in high school.  My how time flies!  Ever since Macy was diagnosed with a heart problem, celebrating her birthday is a BIG deal!  For its another year that I get with my dog.  I know, I know, I must sound completely crazy to some of you, but I just can't even begin to explain my love for this little furry creature and how much she has changed me in the last 12 years. 

I had to take Macy to the vet yesterday.  You may remember this post where I talked about her cardiology appointment last month.  The cardiologist she saw, who I loved, was just a moonlighter and had never seen her or listened to her heart before.  He told me her heart didn't sound that bad.  I was a little confused since her heart murmur has been sooo loud in the past, but I just figured he had listened to a ton of dog hearts and to him, her heart sounded ok.  Anyway, the vet that I took her to yesterday was the one that pretty much saved her life 3 years ago, as you may remember me talking about in this post.  She has heard her heart murmur for the past 3 years.  Yesterday, she listened and listened and listened.  She said her heart sounded great, that she could barely hear the murmur.  She asked what I was doing differently and if I was doing any holistic stuff.  I told her all I did was change her food to Royal Canine for Chihuahuas and their hearts and that I was feeding her carrots.  No more junk food and table scraps, well, not very often anymore...She let me listen to her heart and I couldn't believe my ears!  Comparatively speaking, her murmur that was once a 4/6 is now almost hard to hear!  Can you believe it?!?!!  Praise the Lord!!!  I think maybe He knows that if something ever happens to my way-to-spoiled princess of a dog that I will have to check myself into Laurette for a few days months.  God is awesome!!! 

Happy Birthday Macy Girl!  You are one of the most wonderful gifts in the whole entire world!
