Those of you who have been reading or following this blog over the past couple of months will remember that Mattie, the foxhound shown here, had a close brush with an infection.
I'm happy to report that she is doing much better than anyone expected. She lost about 25% of her weight, so she is still on puppy food, which has the highest calorie content of any dog food. She is back to running and stalking the cats that live on the other side of the fence.
She will soon be 13 years old, which is ancient for a foxhound. We're lucky to have her still around. She is the matriarch to our other dogs, a collie and two Jack Russells.
