()We finally heard from the radiologist. Duncan's problems still aren't sufficiently pronounced to make whatever's going on more diagnosable, but disk disease has been moved down the list and DM has been moved up, which isn't great news. It's relatively uncommon in Siberians. The radiologist also confirmed my vet's opinion on Duncan's senior citizenshipness. He's doing okay, though. Yesterday he went in to have his teeth cleaned, which required a general anaesthetic, and when he got home he was pretty woozy.

He looked like he wanted to go out the front door, though, so I put a leash on and he staggered out and off the steps, and then he perked up and started dragging me down the road with his gaits perfectly steady. When we got back home he started staggering around like a drunk dog again. Silly manipulative dog.
In other news, kiss me, I'm Canadian. My citizenship papers arrived earlier this week.

The main thing is that whatever it is isn't sufficiently advanced to be diagnosable. He's having problems with the stairs but can still manage them, although he tends to become frustrated while descending and fling himself off, frequently landing with something less than perfect form.
What did you use to be?

American. Still am. The US no longer requires you to give up your citizenship when you naturalize elsewhere.

The Rocky good luck baton is passed to Duncan.

OK, time to bring you up to speed: Our Government is as shitty as all the others'.

Matt. Rocky's a Dog.

The whole process was kind of a bureaucratic mess, punctuated in the middle by someone from the bureaucracy actually calling me to see if I needed help with the process, etc. That was rather stunning.

You're double-registered? Cool!

Yay! Very good news. Okay, maybe not very good but definitely on the good side. Especially the part where he's doing okay. And now you understand a little better those times that he's not.

Did this require that you use family connections in Canada? Or could others of us do it also? DH has mentioned doing more and more often lately. (I know Canada's not perfect either but...)
