On Hold

Just as things seemed to settle down a bit - the guests out the door, new housemate moved in - my dear Gracie has had a health crisis. Within one day she went from happy go lucky pup to complete paralysis. She has been at the vet's for two days and there is still no diagnosis but the likely culprits are a neurotoxin (possibly picked up from eating compost), a spinal embolism, or atypical Addison's disease. The good news is she is increasingly alert, eating, and peeing again. We're hopeful that she will recover.

  4. Sending hugs and prayers of healing and support your way. We had two golden retrievers (sisters) who lived to 16 years. These fluffy babies are such a blessing to us humans. Sue
