Thank you guys for the well wishes!

We just got back in and it's an issue stemming from his back. Long explanation, but it will just take resting and hopefully it will clear up. We just have to be diligent about keeping him from jumping. I learned something about dachshunds and their back issues though. I always thought it was due to their length (as did my vet for a long time), but apparently their back issues are genetic. They're more prone to have calcification of the stuff that helps lubricate things and keeps them moving. I've got some reading to do I guess.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
