We had a lab until a few months ago. He wasn't that old, only 8, but we thought he was getting arthritis in his front shoulder. X-rays showed he had cancer everywhere and he went fast. Corkie missed him, but seems very happy to be an only dog now.
hello marquita, my long lost friend. life has interfered with mycorgi.com. i loved your comment to doug re. his ironed shirts. i love sparkle! he's been soooo spoiled with gromit. sparkle is his just dessert for finding ricky/rafa for me.
meantime, RR has become my romeo, just a sweetheart. I haven't posted on mycorgi that he probably needs ACL surgery. I don't want too many opinions. it's tough enough with my own vets' advice. i think i'm going to go with the tustin orthopedic group for the surgery this week. please let me know what you think. but advice from members across the country would not help me now. moreover, our friend who is a people orthopedic surgeon is coming over within the hour to exam ricky. as if! My vet does ACL surgery but he is a DVM, not trained or board certified in orthopedic surgery. He said he has no problem w/ our going to the specialists in Tustin. He had no ego in this...saying that they have patented procedures that he can't do that cut the recovery time in half.
they use titanium rather than steel and do less cutting and invasive stuff. i'm a wreck. we had planned the surgery weeks ago, but then rr made a major recovery and our vet canceled the surgery, saying rr seemed to have healed himself. we thought we dodged the bullet, but his limping is back and it's much worse now.
hope all is good with you and your 2 and 4-legged fam! xoxo wendy
Bentley felt both of the earthquakes. During both of them we were downstairs. Bentley woke up from his napping, and was concerned / curious. Chloe slept during the first one, never woke up. She felt the second one. Neither of them barked. The only thing that fell over was Comet's picture... how interesting.
We too are just staying inside. The dogs have just been laying around, not very active. We go out for training walks in the evening when it is cooler. Bentley sure was surprised by the two earthquakes we felt in our Yorba Linda neighborhood. Every once in a while I feel a little small aftershock. Did you feel it in your neighborhood?
What a beautiful page you have. This is the first time I have seen it. Back to Gomer Pyle, you made me look. It was episode 35 Production number 7133 and aired on 15 Oct 1965. The dogs name was " Killer " and was changed but I could not find out what it was changed to. You have a wonderful family
Thanks, she is precious in that photo. Unfortunately, there was a slight hitch in the adoption so she's going to stay with the breeder, but I was lucky enough to take home her beautiful healthy sister, who we have named Effie. Mass amounts of pictures are on their way!
