Anything’s Pawsable with a Little Pixie
Dust – Part 2
My most recent Dr. visit was to a holistic doctor, and for the very first time a doctor took my
symptoms seriously. He noticed that I sway when I stand still. He noticed that I am off balance when
I walk (granted not always, this comes and goes). He even discovered that one of my eyes wasn’t

sniff followed by laying down next to me. Matt will call her to go downstairs and she refuses to
budge until I get up. Nightime can also be similar. She will sometimes cuddle with me on the bed and
as Matt comes to bed she will hop off and go right into her kennel without even being asked. Other
nights Matt will tell her to “kennel” and instead of jumping off the bed she will get
