Artist Kang Dong Hyun

Canine Culture

 

Welcome to Friday everyone, CEO Olivia reporting. Today I’ve sniffed out some pawsome looking sculptures by Korean sculptor Kang Dong Hyun. His technique involves constructing hollow sculptures from a system of metallic branches, giving his works the appearance of metallic shrubbery, portraying majestic animals such as lions, elephants, & horses.

You can sniff out Kang’s interpretations of the animal kingdom on Instagram.

It’s not too late to place a bid on something in my silent auction for the Wally Foundation ~ canine epilepsy. But you better hurry to my Facebook page ,Oh, The Life of Olivia because my Annual November Epilepsy Month Silent Auction for The Wally Foundation – Canine Epilepsy closes at midnight EST tomorrow (Saturday). You’ll be helping out a wooftastic cause & will help a warrior fight on against the monster that is epilepsy.

Have a wooftastic weekend.

The Unending, Ever Evolving Fight With Canine Epilepsy

News

Hello everyone, CEO Olivia reporting. Today I’m recovering from a long battle with the epi monster. I had gone 149 days without a seizure.  Being armed with knowledge, experience & a protocol we were able to get through this rough fight with epilepsy.

However, huMom feels she ignored warning signs. I had gone so long without a visit from the monster that we had let our guard down. For example, there was a big weather shift which is often a trigger. I was more reactive than normal & lunged at an ATV as it drove by. I also barked at SAM like I didn’t know him when he came down the driveway. But the biggest warning signal was me showing huMom my belly which in normal dogs is cute but with me it’s a red flag.

Lessons learned. You can never let your guard down. Not with canine epilepsy. Don’t ignore the warning signs even if that means you need to create a sign or post-it that you can frequently see to remind you during those seizure free days; do it. I know huMom will.

Before starting our CBD journey huMom did extensive research.  Part of that research discussed micro-dosing.  We felt micro-dosing was the best approach for me.  Next week I will dig deeper into the subject of micro-dosing but for now what I can tell you is that I started with 2 drops of CBD tincture on each inner ear flap (hairless).  It seemed to work; for 149 days. Then it did not. Which means we need to increase the dose. So, instead of 2 drops on each ear flap every 24 hours, I am now receiving 2 drops in each ear flap every 12 hours.

HuMom & I would like to thank everyone for the support, pawsitive energy, prayers, love & kind words. When we stand together, we stand strong! 💜 nose nudges 💜
