Much, Much Gratitude

As we've read countless stories of other canine amputee friends on the "Treatment and Recovery" forum at, we have come to the realization of just how lucky we (and the Red Dog, of course) have been through this process. While other dogs have to stay heavily medicated for 3, 4 or even 5 weeks, Shiva was off all pain meds at a week. While other dogs struggle with appetite, coordination and attitude, the Red Dog eats like a (pink) pig, pulls like a truck and demands a car ride at least once-a-day. Aside from Shiva's obvious magnificence, we have to give credit to Brenda for the healing touch treatments and to all of you for the prayers and good wishes. The support everyone has shown thus far has been nothing short of amazing. Now just pray that Shiva sails through the chemo like she did the surgery. Thanks! WOOF!

Btw...a "beauty" question from the Red Dog...which color will suit her lovely coat better...Red Currant or Black Obsidian? Please vote in "Comments". WOOF WOOF!

    If the Red Dog hasn't already gone out and purchased the new issue of Oprah Magazine she needs to...lots of stuff about dogs and other animals that makes for very interesting reading!

  4. Black, goes with anything.

    Red Dog, we know you're going to do just fine. Hang in there.
