Peek A Boo!


That’s Momma Sissy peering underneath Benjamin.  Priceless!

As Long as He is Still Eating …


At 12 1/2, Stone is showing his age.  He had a dental a few months ago and had a hard time coming out of the anesthesia.  We knew that this would be his last.  He developed a lump on his neck recently and luckily, it appears to be a benign blood vessel tumor with no real threat.  But, everyday, we wonder just how much longer Stone has.  It’s inevitable when you have super senior dogs and you see them aging by the day.  But, as long as he is still eating …

Momma Pepper’s Cancer is in Remission!

After two rounds of hyperthermia/chemotherapy, Momma Pepper’s thyroid tumor has shrunk and hasn’t been growing!  These results are fantastic for an aggressive tumor like this.  We can’t thank North Coast Vet Specialists enough for the wonderful care that Momma Pepper has received.  And, it’s no surprise that she’s become a favorite at their hospital!

Momma Pepper would like to thank all the kind people that donated money or participated in fundraisers for her care.

Healing Thoughts Needed For Momma Levity


During a routine bi-annual wellness exam, we discovered that Momma Levity’s urine protein levels are too high and her serum protein levels are too low.  We also discovered an infection in her urinary tract.  She’s on antibiotics now and will be retested in a week.  If the infection clears up and her protein levels are still off, then we’ll start her on a prescription diet and more medication.  Please keep her in your thoughts.

The Results are In …


After many weeks of studying the 3D models, the orthopedic surgeons at OSU felt that nothing more can be done for Momma CoCo’s leg.  There just isn’t enough bone to merit the risk of surgery and complications.  The good news is that her leg is otherwise healthy, not being traumatized, and not causing her any pain at this point.  Amputation isn’t needed as long as her leg remains as it is.  The surgeons were amazed at how well Momma CoCo can get around and believed that a cart or other assistive device would not be a positive change for her.  So, we will keep her happy and healthy and as active as she wants to be.  Look for her at some of our meet and greets … she’d love to see you!
