Fun Winter!

This winter we did a lot of outside activities like playing fetch in the snow and playing lots of ice hockey with Sidney and Butters.  While Sidney had a few regurgitation periods, nothing out of the ordinary really.  Sidney will turn 5 years old this September. 

Our upright feeding routine and meds has worked wonders for Sidney for over 4 and a half years and counting. We were curious how playing and exercising so much more with the addition of Butters to the family could throw off the schedule.  But it hasn't.  In fact, Butters knows that Sidney's feeding time in the Bailey Chair is his time.  She doesn't bother him until he's done.

We haven't changed Sidney's routine for quite some time and will ride it out until we need to tweak it, if at all.  In the meantime, we will just treat both dogs the same, because realistically, the only difference is that Sidney eats vertically in a chair for 1 hour a day, the other 23 hours are just normal.  Sure he doesn't get treats or water from a bowl, but that doesn't seem to really matter.  What maters is that Sidney is living a normal life with his sister Butters.  Life is good!
