    Donna, I'm glad your BF is gaining his health back... It saddens my heart to see any creature suffer. I have several friends just waiting to come with me over that Rainbow Bridge (google it). They are a joy, but also a responsibility. Love ya.... Jake

    Hey Richard...:-)

    Oh MD....I'm so so sorry to hear about your doggie! I'm sure he is better now...Cancer surely does suck and it has come very close to my home and loved ones. It still makes my heart fear and quiver. I hope your doggie recovers nicely. I had a dog that was knifed by soldiers wandering on our campus and dad had to put him to sleep. How I wailed...life can be cruel. Love ya!

    I'm very sad to hear this, Donna! I know what it's like cause I had to put my first dog now when he started having seizures. He was eight years old (I had him for about eight months), but I was really attached to him... I didn't get over it for at least a couple weeks. Hope he comes back to his normal self soon!

    I'm so sorry for your loss nette ..it's so hard isn't it? This dog replaced one I lost last year to parvo...I always..rescue my dogs from shelters so I guess they don't get a very good start. Spookie is doing better today, thank you...

    A pet is a family member and friend has a special place in our hearts. We feel guilt too that we can't explain to them why we brought them to the vet and what's wrong. I pray for the day you can throw the ball again to be happily retrieved. Hugs

    Good evening Donna, my name is Phillip Rollings; "Flipper" to my friends and you as a poet on Poetrysoup are my friend. I am the proxy for Chef who you know as Harry, Hg, or Liege while he is in the hospital. He should be home by Sat. If you read his last post and the blog he asked me to write this comment will make more sense. Chef had a dog "Poochie" that lost a leg in a hit and run she was a great dog for 6 more years. Respectfully Flipper

    Hi Flipper, nice to meet you...tell Harry..get well soon...I do not Facebook or blog and did not know he was in the hospital. I hope it's not serious. I so appreciate the kind words and concern...Spookie is better today and we are both smiling...
