Tiki and Tavi are fourteen-year-old littermates and have always been together. In this picture, Tiki is a little annoyed with the flashy box, as he is trying to explore and the Mom keeps taking pictures of him. This picture was taken after the stroller ride in the previous post. Tiki just loves going out on his harness and wants to get into everything. Tiki and Tavi have a fun game that they play with the Mom when they are out on their harnesses. They will each go in a different direction, leaving the Mom being pulled apart in the middle. Tiki and Tavi are also very clever. They have found out that they can open any door in the house if Tiki stands up and turns the knob while Tavi pushes at the bottom of the door. The Mom had to put child-proof latches on all the kitchen cabinets to keep them from opening up the cabinet doors. Tiki used to enjoy opening the cabinet door where the dog food was kept and having an illicit feast. Tiki has been diagnosed with diabetes, but he does very well most of the time. Because Tiki needs food throughout the day, both Tiki and Tavi are fed Stinky Goodness three times a day. One day the Mom came home from work for lunch and Tiki was nowhere in sight. This was very unusual, as Tiki usually greets her at the door, demanding his lunch. The Mom found him in his bed, very deeply asleep. The problem was that he was very sluggish to respond to anything, so the Mom tested his blood sugar. It was extremely low. The Mom tried to get him to eat his usual lunch, but he only ate about half of it. Then she tried baby food, but he only ate about a fourth of that. That meant that she had to get out the big guns. She dosed him with honey, which he hates, but it brought his blood sugar up. The whole situation was a bit scary for both of them, but Tiki is fine now.
Tiki didn't come out for lunch.
This really worried his Mom a bunch.
His blood sugar was low
And it made him slow.
Mom doctored him up, 'cause she loves him a bunch.
