Joe,
One thing you cannot do is blame yourself as it will only make things worse. These things happen and Tux has only been on meds for a short time. Sometimes tweeking is necessary to get good control and this can take a while. I really agree with what Debby said about not taking the easy way out especially with what you went through a short time ago.
Tux (and you) will get control of this thing - just hang in there.

I could never put him down or get rid of him.
He is to happy of a dog. Even today 3 hours after his siezures he is grabing his frisbee and dragging me to the yard to throw it. Even with his side affects this dog can really fly for a frisbee. Not always the best at landing but he is having fun. It breaks my heart to see him slip on the tile trying to chase his sister or not quiet make the jump on the bed at night and have to be helped up. But he is still my Tux and everyday he is here for me as I am for him.
It will always be that way.

Joe,
I'm so sorry to hear about Tux, but as you have said this was really good, a couple of days longer this time. Fingers crossed, once the meds have had a chance to reach theraputic levels a great improvement will be seen. My heart goes out to you, and while I know this discouraging, hang in there. Enjoy the good days and we are all going to be saying many prayers that Tux can go a whole month next time.
Give Tux a really big hug for me and please keep us posted.

well well well look at the date again its about that time. 13 days down and no signs this morning with means Tux will make it to day 14 AGAIN. Twice in a row tying his record has me doing back flips. I just remember a month ago thinkin I would never see him make it 2 weeks and here he has done it back to back. But this time he will exceed that and we will set our self a new record this week. Ill keep yall posted as we move forward tomorrow. :)
