    Taylor

    Today is 3 years since my sweet boy Taylor went to the Bridge.2 years, 2 months, and 13 days after he was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma (bone cancer) in his right front leg.He was almost 2 years as a happy, hopping tripod, loving and demanding rides and walks 2-3 times a day.He loved seeing people, loved getting hugs.But the pain became too much to control at the end, and I promised him when I adopted him that I would do whatever needed to be done to keep him a happy boy. It was time. No more pain for my boy. 12/11/08-3/23/17 My heart aches as much today as it did 3 years ago. It never gets better. I feel great comfort in knowing that I will be with him again, someday.
  2. After a Dairy Queen Blizzard, I would need at least 2 of them close by.
  3. So very sorry for the loss of that sweet girl
  4. That's all good, until you have a catastrophic need to pay bills. It would take 2 years of saving premiums just to pay for chemo treatments, and the accompanying blood tests, administration of the chemo, and chest x-rays. In the case of an amputation, it would take 1, 2, possibly 3 years of saving monthly premiums for just the procedure alone, let alone any after care. Been there, done that. Even with Amicar administered prior to Taylor's amputation, he still had a tremendous amount of bruising and edema which required a 6 night stay in the hospital, staying on IV's to keep flushing his kidneys to remove the risk of permanent, irreversible damage to his kidneys. He was peeing dark red for many days, while his body tried to absorb all the fluid from the internal bleeding. That stay in the hospital was discounted to $4200.00.
  5. Mine don't move until someone comes in.....and then only if they smell food on the guests.
  6. So very sorry for the loss of your sweet boy.
  7. Zoledronate has been used to replace Pamidronate. It has proven to be much more effective, and takes a lot less time to administer.
  8. You can see Petunia with that look, "What's wrong with that dog???"
