Yes he is pure Maltese. But considering his dastardly deed, we thought the following costume would be appropriate for Halloween.

Addie, you are too funny! Love the costume.

I am making a ballerina costume for Violet. I am sewing a tutu onto a child's purple tank top and have a tiara as well. She really doesn't mind getting dressed up. I have been doing it since she was a puppy, and she just gives me that resigned "whatever" look.

It looks like she is finally over the ear infection. It was so bad that she was on 10 days of antibiotic, antihistamine and ear drops. I had to stop one of her pain meds for that time and she suffered quite a bit, but she is back on it now.

Our vet recommended CET Hex rawhide strips to help keep Beagle's teeth clean. A while back, Beagle stopped eating, and when I took her to the vet, they couldn't find any reason why, even after many tests and X-rays. We thought we would lose her. Turns out, a whole rawhide CET Hex strip was stuck in her gut. She's now fine. She just gobbles them down, without much chewing. I started cutting them into smaller pieces, but decided it wasn't worth the risk. The problem is, Beagle expects her "cookie" after her evening meal, and Greenies or other treats just don't do it for her.

I think I have a a good alternative, dehydrated pumpkin jerky. Made some today, and she LOVES it! I used a big can of Libby's pure pumpkin and smeared it 1/4 inch thick on the fruit rollup tray of the dehydrator. I cut a circle out of parchment paper and smeared another layer on another tray. Took about 8 hours of drying, but it's chewy, lasts awhile, and hopefully Beagle won't miss her other cookies!

Sounds like you found the solution on your own. Pumpkin jerky! How about making some for humans with the proper seasonings. Sounds like you have found a treat for everyone. Even I would be willing to try pumpkin jerky.

Bet it would work, Addie, just add the usual spices, maybe a bit of sugar. Beagle gets the unadulterated stuff. Just don't dehydrate too much, it gets crunchy instead of chewy.

If you decide to try it, I would be very interested in the recipe. I don't have a dehydrator, but I could use the oven. My oven has a setting for "warm, 150, and 200F."

My mouth is watering!

Now you've given me an idea for the homemade pumpkin puree I have in the freezer. I'll mix it with pie spice and brown sugar and see how it turns out! Your low oven should work fine for pumpkin jerky.

I had to euthenize my little Maltese tonight. My heart is broken. He was such a sweetheart and I am going to miss him terribly. We were pretty sure he was going to die, but he was peaceful and didn't seem to be in pain so we were just waiting it out. He has not eaten for a few days. He was drinking water up to last night. None today at all. Around 9PM he had a violent seizure. Blood was coming out of his mouth, then he just seemed to be in a coma. Breathing, but his eyes were not focused. Our vet was closed so we took him to the Vet ER in the next town. There was no way we wanted him to go through the night after that seizure. He is at peace now, but I can't stop crying. I miss my baby.
