My Achey Breaky Heart

Well I went to the vet and it turns out I SWOONED. I had a syncope or fainting spell because of my bum ticker. My heartrate is way too high. Like 250 beats/minute. And I have high blood pressure. And the vet told me I have Tacky-cardia. HOW RUDE. I happen to know my heart is very classy. So I'm going to have a consult with the cardi-ologist (he specializes in cardigan corgis?) to decide what to do. For now I just have to take it easy. No shouting at the neighbor or brudder-humpa-humpa. In other words, no fun.

My ma ape has noticed a pattern wherein I have a medical emergency right around the holidays. Three years ago I had a back problem and then she spent all night with me in the ER after I ate my whole (sample) bottle of Rimadyl. And then two years ago the vet detected my heart problem (then manifesting as an arrhythmia and murmur). And now another ticker/vapors problem.

Maybe when I visit and they take me in the back "for tests" I am eating brisket while the vet tells me how to help him get $$ to pay for Christmas presents.

My lips are sealed.

Oh Wally - Surely your have ticker troubles cuz your heart is just oozing with love for all your girlfriends & bromances...

Please only take the recommended doses of your ticker meds that the vet give you...they are not like a sample candy jar on the counter...

& tell ETHEL to use her WHISPER voices...

& tell Oscar BST to keep his sharkie teethies in his own mouthie...

You need some serious R&R... (Randi & ((more)) Randi)!

Love & Licks,

You need to get the two sharks to pull you around in a chariot so you don't over-exert yourself.

I always get sick for the holidays too. It keeps mom home. It's a good plan. I sure hope they can deal with that tacky-cardia. My human aunt has that too. Her heart is always racing all over the place and then she has to go get some crazy shot at the human vet's place. I hope you don't have to get crazy shots too, but you know how those vets are. They better give you excessive amounts of cookies. Watch your salt intake and try not to think about me so much.

Wally: My Grandpa Ape has that, and he gotted a PACE-maker to help his heart keep better rhythms. Do you need one? Maybe he has a spare?

Hope your vet charges less than his

Oh Walleye... Make sure every medicines gets wrapped up in a big steak or a whole ham butt and then spit it out so they try again. Or a pill pocket which are crazy good in a twinkies kind of way.

Woober Walls!

Your cardia is not a BIT tacky, and I can't imagine that you'd EVER need a pacemaker. I've always said, like the GoGos, you've GOT THE BEAT, man!

I too had the same thought as Randi about your heart full of love for your bros and bitches. Maybe you're just too giving of a dog. It happens.

Be sure to make Oscar Bean & that Ethel Girl BEHAVE so your ticker gets a chance for a little rest.

Goober love & smooches,

This will never do. Do you need a transplant. I could volunteer one of these goofs I live with. It's their brains that malfunction, not the heart.
You must stay well at any cost.

Wally-o, Please do not move in with Dick Cheney!!! That does not sound like the right solution for what ails you!!!

We're so sorry you're having problems. And we know you've been hoping for a change of venue that would take you into D.C. -- but, again, not that D.C.

Get better!!! We know your cardio is vary classy, and not tacky at all. But if it's any consolation, our mom has a tacky cardio too and there are meds to fix it.

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Wally, I'm sending lots of brown dog healing thoughts your way. I sure hope that cardi-ologist can fix what's wrong. It totally sucks that you don't get to have any fun. Hopefully your ma-ape will try to make up for it with lots of extra eatables.

Brown dog kisses,
