my world, upside down

a few weeks ago now we learned the dog has become diabetic. i think, honestly, we were pretty close to losing her. thankfully, we now have her on an insulin injection, twice a day. unfortunately this means we have to give her shots, twice a day. she's a whole lot of awesome, and allows us to give her the shots easily, but on two occasions i have gotten a small yelp out of her. talk about heart breaking.

i also recently started selling Amy Sacks Eyewear directly to people. this venture allows people who may want to buy new glasses, but the normal cost (average cost for new frames and lenses is close to $450!!) isn't even a blip on the radar. just sold a complete pair, with the addition of a hard case for $10, all for the low price of $145.50!! the girl was flabbergasted, to say the least. i gots to keep that dog in insulin, people!

interested in learning more about it, visit the blog i've started writing about my adventure. the eyes have it

you can earn some nice extra $$ with a little work (but mostly fun!).

Glad to know Josie is doing well. She has a fantastic nurse.

Yes, glad to know Josie is doing better.

Just out of curiosity, do you have any idea why she became diabetic? I always wondered if the prednisone our kitty was on caused her to become diabetic. I've read that steroids can increase a dog's or cat's likelihood of diabetes.
