This is a blog written by Tiffany Akins. The blog was a condition of adopting Milka, a rescue dog. Milka and Tiffany live in Vancouver, BC, just two blocks away from a great big dog park in South Granville.

Milka is a male poodle, originally from Taipei, Taiwan. Milka was born in 2008.

    Hi Tiffany
    I often think of you and Milka. I hope you’re both well. It’s lovely to see all the volunteer work you’ve been doing and that Milka is enjoying life.
    Love Kristie xx
    Milka’s once upon a time vet from Australia

      Hey Kristie! It’s so nice to hear from you! That’s very thoughtful that you think of Milka. We’re good. Milka’s diabetes is pretty well controlled. I think we’ve increased his insulin a very small amount (one unit) perhaps twice since he was initially diagnosed. One of his eyes is getting cataracts but he manages pretty well.
      How are you? What kind of practice are you doing?

    Hi Tiffany,
    I am glad to hear that his diabetes has been pretty well controlled lately. Sorry to hear that he is getting cataracts – it’s an unfortunately common consequence of his disease.
    I am good thanks. I am working in a two vet practice in Sydney. We do a lot of work for pet rescue charities with is challenging and rewarding at the same time.
    Take care and I am glad I can check in on Milka’s adventures on this blog every now and then!
