    Tania - my heart goes out to you and Coco - what a terrible time for you and the rest of your furry family. Thoughts, love and lick (from Oscar) are with you.

    We had a good day at the Dog Olympics, we raised just under 280 selling little bits and pieces. This money wil be put towards the The Cavalier Collection Scheme.

    I have been monitoring Coco closely, her heart rate is still higher than it should be. I can still hear a bit of fluid on her right lung. The cardiologist has asked me to increase her frusemide this afternoon and then again tomorrow morning. I will be taking her back on Thursday morning.

    Coco has lost all her weight so she is now in a little Tee Shirt to keep warm and comfortable.

    I was told that you can buy comfort tee shirts, has anyone ever heard of that?

    These are two photos earlier this year and the last one was on taken on Sunday.

    Oh Tania, she looks so sad and tired doesn't she. She is so pretty. I hope that she starts to feel a bit better soon. I can't help you with the comfort tee shirt - not really sure what they are to be honest. Hope all goes well tomorrow with the Cardiologist, and well done on the fund raising at the weekend. xx

    Tania, is it the thunder shirts you're talking about?

    How's Coco today. Hope a bit better. Those pictures are adorable. She's such a sweetheart.

    Just a warning on thundershirts -- a lot of positive-methods trainers strongly advise against these -- they say the dogs are more subdued because they are uncomfortable and even more scared in these compressing shirts. They say if you watch some of the videos with dogs in the shirts even in calm surroundings they tend to show a lot of anxious behaviour -- cowering, lip licking, looking away.

    I've not used them so can't say from experience, but have asked a few trainers about them. They don't look all that tight to me. Actually you'd wonder -- would not just putting a dog coat on a dog help for fear in storms? Maybe the coat just calms because the dogs refocus on the thought that they will be going for a walk. None of mine (dogs or cats) are afraid of thunder/fireworks so have never tried any of these things.

    Tania if you are looking for something better fitting, maybe opt for some babygrows (onesies)? They are soft and warm, fit nicely and you can cut off the bottom leg half. Also think just a smaller size dog T or sweatshirt should work?

    Just to clarify, I never had any experience with thunder shirts either. I've just heard about them. Karlin, you brought up some valid points about their use, so maybe a nice comfy fleece lined sweatshirt is better.
