This morning started normal. Woke up, ordered in food, then went to walk my dog before it arrived. When the delivery person hit the buzzer my dog didn’t run to the door, which is unusual for him, but he looked fine so I wasn’t alarmed.
I go to set the food down and he fell to the floor LOUDLY. His back legs were not moving at all and his face looked blank. I grabbed him and put him on the bed. His legs went stiff and his body started contorting and shaking hard. I didn’t even get dressed, picked him up along with a blanket and got a cab to his vet in Chelsea. I almost forgot my shoes even.
The veterinary office was busy but they took him right away to the front of the line. The people in line were very understanding. They took him to a room in the back to examine him and take his blood. The technician told me that from what I had told her it sounded like a he had a seizure, which is very common in dogs. They sent me to another room in the back to wait for him. After about 10 minutes they brought him back to me.
The picture above is how he looked. Like nothing ever happened.
They said from the bloodwork he’s completely healthy. But there is a good chance of him having another seizure. They said they can’t tell when that will happen. It could be anytime between tonight and next year. They also said if he has more than 3 in one month to start him on medication.
I’m grateful that he’s healthy but I’m still very worried about him having more seizures. I never want to see that again, it was horrible. I am also grateful that I can afford proper medical care for my dog. I was not in a good financial position last year but that is a story for another time.
Happy Valentine’s Day to all my followers!

I realize a lot of former and current porn stars information leaked onto the internet last year. Somebody just used this information to contact me.
There are a million other places to talk to me on the internet. Not on my real email or Facebook. I can’t see any industry worker being okay with that. In fact it’s just scary.
Social skills, people.
