Hi everyone! Brutus here. We've been a bit tardy about posting and commenting. We've been reading everyone's blog though.

We even missed the Sept pug meet up. Then I hear we aren't going to Pugapalooza. What a buzzkill. Everything is ok Mom is a bit distracted with some work and personal stuff. Mom tends to isolate herself when she gets like this. blah blah blah.

Miley had a crisis. She went back for bloodwork and some of the enzymes were still high so Dr. Grasso wanted to test her for Addison's Disease.

It is the common name for hypoadrenocorticism, or adrenal insufficiency. It is a disease with symptoms that are common in many other ailments, making diagnosis difficult and sometimes a process of elimination. But once Addison's is correctly diagnosed, a properly treated dog can live a normal active life.

We will know about her results on Thursday or Friday and we'll post an update. I got to ride in the car when we took her to vet earlier today! YES

I have been doing great. Although Mom has given me a bath 2 times in the past 2 weeks. Apparently I have allergies and have been getting scabs on my skin so I get tortured. A bath and then the furminator. I don't have anymore scabs so you'd think she would stop with the baths? Mom is a little slow.

Love, Brutus


  1. Good to know you are still there and kickin! Hope everything smooths out soon for Miley & you mom!

  2. We are so glad to see you back in the lanf of the living =) Don't worry about your momma, mine gets that way sometimes too!! Poor Miley!! Keep us updated on her condition. We will send pug love and kisses her way!!


  3. Good to hear from you! Mom says that sometimes life gets in the way of what we want to do. We have allergies too, luckily no scabs - we usually get a benadryl to help with the itches.

    Hope that you get good news about Miley - she is such a sweet little girl.

    I have a Sammie furiend that was FINALLY diagnosed with Addisons - he's doing unbelievably well now!

  5. I will keep Miley in my prayers!!!

  6. Hi Brutus! I have been thinking of you! Please give your momma a hug for me- I know how stress can really bring you down.
    And I will be thinking of Miss Miley! Let us know the test results... ok?

  7. Hi Brutus, We miss you but understand life gets in the way sometimes - we will all be here when you get some time to blog!!
