Kirin is still crazy, and thinks she's starving all the time from about an hour or so after dinner and breakfast. I mean, she's hungry, as expected for her condition and what she's been thru, but she's gotten hungrier quicker each day, though she is eating about 7 cups a day at this point. A couple of times she's actually started to try to take my dinner while we're laying here on the bed.
Her output is still soft-serve, but not runny, pretty much like Yogi's usually is...except there's a lot more of it.
Yogi is still having a lot of fun with her; they play every day, at least once in the morning before I go to work and once when I come home, and probalby more when i'm not here.
Kirin, however, has gotten into barking too much, whenever I am not here she's kinda anxious, so I moved Yogi's pheremone collar over to her, and he's doing fine that way still. It seems to be helping her a little, but not completely.
So I dug out the citronella-spray anti-bark collar, which Yogi quickly learned to ignore, in hopes that it would work on Kirin, but when I filled it up it immediately began spraying out, even without the battery yet installed, meanign the solenoid valve is stuck in the open position.
I disassembled the colar and tried to find a way to open or adjust or clean the valve, but eventually just broke one of the terminals off of it, breaking the fine wire to the coil, and never did get it to unjam. I probalby can fix the wire, if I use a camera and monitor to enlarge what I'm looking at enough to see it, as it's about the same as a human hair. :/
But that's pointless unless I can free it.
I was lucky enough that this thing survived the fire a few years ago, but I guess it coudlnt' work forever. :/ Hopefully I can fix it because I can't replace it ATM (I just spent the only spare money I had on stuff for the SB Cruiser trike repairs and upgrades).
On the downside of all this...one of the things I always loved to watch, and found so endearing about most dogs, is their puppydreams. But not anymore.
Everytime Kirin is sleeping in the bed (across my legs usually), and she puppy-dreams, it brings back those days of Teddy going thru her seizures, and I often can't sleep for a long while after waking up to that.
It happens with Yogi, too, but not as often as he typically sleeps across the room against the wall, or out in the kitchen in front of hte sink on the cooler tile, until the weather gets a lot cooler, when he's more likely to sleep up here on the bed, or at least next to it.
All I have to see is twitching paws, much less the whimper/barking or sleeprunning, and I'll be triggered into flashbacks of Teddy's seizures, and then everything else that happened.
