Big Bird!

I think George thought he had hit the Jackpot last night! I brought him a turkey that I hope to cook tomorrow. His eyes were so big and he was so excited! He knew it was for him! We've been going through about one chicken every day and a half. While we'll help with the big bird, I am hoping this will last longer. I will give credit to the lady at Foster Farms' customer service. She was a really good sport when I called with some questions about boiling a chicken for my dog. 45 minutes of simmer after it starts to boil, in case anyone wants to know.

I've had several people ask, and I thank you all for your love, support, well wishes and prayers. George is feeling ok. He is on prednisone and near the end of his antibiotics. The ultrasound showed cancer in his spleen and internal cavity. I will actually have more details tomorrow after his ACS vet appointment, but the long and short of it is, he is not in remission as we had thought. This is a very bad set back. We have a short expectancy, but lots of hope.

My friend Richard posted my all time favorite photo of George on the YDYC homepage. I invite you to check it out. Be sure to read the sign!

Also, National Dog Day, something very near and dear to my heart, has a new blog. The tremendous accomplishments they have made already and the goals they have set forth are all very exciting!

I am sitting here heartbroken for George :( What a beautiful animal. I will pray for him. Both of your dogs are so handsome.
