Any feedback is welcome.

I figured I'd update this because it's been a few years since I've documented anything. A lot has happened since 2012! In short: We moved 5 times since then. A very close family member passed away. I got laid off. I injured my hand from a recent job & it has gotten worse since. But honestly, I couldn't be more at peace within myself right now and with Yuki.
She's been getting shorter walks since living at our new home. The neighborhood isn't as great as the home I've had when I adopted her (from her 30-60 minutes walks now cut down to 15-20 minutes). She got attacked a few times here due to loose dogs & had ran away because my mom kept the gate open. Thank goodness for my brother who found her a few streets over sitting on someone's porch peering into their home. One of her teeth broke in half when she was chewing her bully stick, so we had to take her to get it removed - boy was she so cuddly and swollen from being drugged up!
I believe I summed it all up. She's still the sweet-face dog who jumps up to greet people and unleashes her alpha-female side with other dogs. She receives plenty of snout kisses, body rubs and behind-the-ear scratches. Still so very lucky to have her in my life.
Which leads me to our Chasing Paper Etsy shop. I have been working on new ideas & items for the shop for a few weeks now. Just working out all the design-kinks because I want to be sure I am 100% happy with it before I put them up in the shop. You know what they say... Artists are their own worst critics!
The shop is slowly being update with new policies and will also have a new name. I've realized I am not happy with "Chasing Paper" because it can come off sounding money hungry, even though that's not what it's intended to be - & that's not what I'm about.
I will keep updating when I can. Until next time...
❤︎ Julie & Yuki

Yuki got weighed in at 17.22 pounds. They said she had lost two pounds since her last weigh-in.
Yuki has been doing fine since the meds. We have stopped the Previcox and the Tramadol, but the vet wanted us to continue half-doses of the Gabapentin per day for another week.
He also wants us to confine Yuki for another week or two to make sure her pain doesn't suddenly appear
The vet didn't say much. He just kept repeating the same stuff.
I also asked him if it's possible that it may be a pinched nerve, and he told me that we would have to do an MRI on Yuki for that.
There wasn't any new news. Nothing mentioned about the lesion either...
I'm glad that Yuki didn't break anything, though.
Again, thanks for all your thoughts. Yuki sends all of you humans virtual hugs and kisses (she can really do it on command!) And barks, lunges and maybe play bows to the pups.

The Doctor said that Yuki's results came in today.
The Radiologist said that her xray shows no abnormality in the spacing of her spine. Her blood work came in clean as well. They want us to continue her on the pain medication with confinement and have her back in two weeks to see how she is doing.
I said this on one of the Shiba Inu network... I don't know how I feel about it. Should I be happy because they didn't find anything? Or should I be sad because they didn't...
A fellow shiba owner had said it sounds like it might be a really bad pinched nerve that her Sakura had before.
Thanks again for all your worries. I'm really glad to have such an awesome group of dog-loving friends who understands... Because I am not a crazy dog lady who loves dogs more than people.
