look for a new star in the sky tonight

4 December 2004 - 20 March 2015

God's speed, buddy.  You were the best!


I'll write more in a day or so and do a proper tribute to this beautiful dog.  In short, Sunday night I found a huge lump on his chest.  Monday he was diagnosed with malignant melanoma.  His chest cavety was full of fluid around his heart.  Tuesday I took him for a visit to his stream which he loved.  He declined rapidly.  Last night he could not get comfortable, was having trouble breathing and stopped eating.  The vet came to the house this afternoon.  Ruby and Otto both got to say good by to him.  I'm a wreck and I'm relieved that he's no longer so uncomfortable.  He told me with his eyes that it was time.

Otto Update

Hi my friends!! 

 Otto here with a quick update on ME.  

After just two doses of my new medicine, Zonisamide, I am like 85% better.  I'm still licking and smacking a little, but I'm SO much better.  Dr Sarah chose it for me because it's fast acting, doesn't make me drowsy and pretty inexpensive.  Also I only have to take it twice a day.  

I know it was the Power of the PAW from all my Blogville friends that did the trick.  I even heard from  some new friends I haven't  even met yet, and some kitties!!  And guinea pigs!!  And of course a bunny!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you.  It really helped mom feel better, too.  She saved all your comments in her phone, even though they're all on the blog, she looked at them all day yesterday.  Dork.  

I'll see you soon with more adventures with me and my girls!  

PeeeeeS:  Bart and Ruby say, "hi!"
