  1. I had a greyhound diagnosed one month shy of her 11th birthday, and one diagnosed just before her eigth birthday. The one diagnosed at almost 11, Rama, lived well for a month, and her leg never broke. The younger hound had a very rapid growing osteosarcoma. Her leg broke less than two weeks after diagnosis. The vet had told us we caught it early when she was diagnosed. Unfortunately, it just grew super fast.
  2. I tried getting on GT this morning and I got a message that my IP was blocked because it was a suspected Honeypot. Then I had a 503 error for much of the day.
  3. We had a hound with pannus. Caesar had two different meds for a long while until we got it under control. At one point, he got a small scratch on his eye and we had to stop the steroid and add some kind of antibiotic. It was very difficult at first, but after finally getting it under control he went down to just a couple of drops a week. Here's a blurb from a site to explain why two meds are commonly used: http://animaleyecare.net/diseases/pannus.htm Not all dogs respond to the meds for treatment. Caesar's specialist said that a low percentage of cases will never improve on meds and surgical steps would have to be taken. But, thankfully, Caesar did eventually get much better with the meds.
  4. I'm so sorry for your loss, Wendy.
  5. I'm so sorry, Wendy. Sending Warm Thoughts to you, Kevin and your whole crew.
  6. Chrissy and Patrick, I am so sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you both.
  7. Karen, I'm so sorry for your loss. She's a beautiful soul and will always be with you.
  8. Hi from the Milwaukee area! Brocc is such a handsome boy! Will you be attending the GPA-WI Gala in Waukesha?

    Thank-you all. Caesar's ashes are home now. He was an amazing friend and companion and will always be in our hearts.

    11/27/1995 - 08/16/2008 My Buddy. When you first came home to us you were cast off from several families, through no fault of yours. You walked into the house and never looked back. You were space aggressive and a bit of a loner. But you didn't stay that way for long. You needed a family to love you, we needed someone to help and show our love to. Rama needed someone to show her the ropes, and you and your strength were able to come in and help giver her the confidence she needed. You saved me--You came to us just as another member of our family left us in a violent end. I would never have been able to make it through the rough time if I didn't have you to help through your transition and help through your medical problems. My Prince. You've had so many medical issues, including being attacked by another dog. You came through everything with the heart of a lion. You loved life while you could. You inspired me more than anyone could imagine. Your spark and zest for life have been a constant inspiration to me in my life. My Caesar. We had to say goodbye today, and it was the most difficult thing I have had to do. We would never make you suffer, and you fell quietly asleep with your Mom and Dad holding you. Know that you will always be right in our hearts. Thank-you, Caesar, for everything you have given us. Thank-you for sharing your life with us. Four years of learning, frustration, laughing, snuggling, LIVING. We will always love you.
  11. I'm so sorry, Steph and family!
  12. Welcome back, from a fellow Wisconsinite.
  13. I am so very sorry to hear of Dear's passing. My deepest condolences to you.
