A few updates... firstly, about my condition. My M thinks that I'm improving, at least I'm not breathing so noisily, but the vet still thinks it's bad. So he says that after the weekend's injection, he'll see my condition. If I improve greatly, we'll continue with the current antibiotics, but if I don't show vast improvement, he wants to intubate me and get a sample from my lungs to see what kind of bacteria it is. At the same time, he'll pump in oxygen as well.

So hopefully that my condition improves a lot. After being poked all over, I don't think I want a tube down my mouth as well. Look how seasoned I am to being poked. I didn't even flinch when the needle went in.

My appetitie's returning as well. I've lost a little more weight, and now I'm 22.5kg. My M says I've never been 22kg since I was with her, so now she's adding more food into my dinner. Good thing about this is that I get fed a lot, provided I still have an appetite.

The humans had steamboat for dinner last night and my M kept feeding and feeding me meat!

Here's what they had for steamboat...

A close up of the food...

The steamboat and meat....

More meat, and chili and garlic

Vegetables, tofu, fish maw, mushroom, yam etc...

On another note, I went to an art gallery on Friday. Actually I was going for my vet appointment but my MM had to stop by the art gallery on the way to order something, so I went as well. It turned out that the art gallery is holding a charity art exhibition in conjuction with SPCA. I think next sunday the exhibition will be opened to dogs and their humans as well. If you're looking for a nice doggy art piece, head down for a look.

This is a very bored me waiting... and you can see the paintings in the background. They were still getting ready for the exhibition so the paintings have not been hung yet.

On a sad note, Chuckles lost the fight. RIP old boy, have fun at the rainbow bridge.

I don't understand why we always have to get injected straight into the stomach. I get very itchy after the injections... Wow! You got steamboat? I think you deserve it. From the video, you look thinner Herbie. Please eat more, you need it. Please get better soon. Always thinking of you...
