At least she is pain-free and can see and hear again...I know those words don't really help you either, we understand how much like family these animals are. They give so much love.

So sorry for your loss.

Thank you all for your thoughts. Duchess was to be our last dog . . . at least until we stop traveling and settle in a house somewhere. It's difficult trying to coordinate doggie day care for a special needs dog if/when one of us has health problems that require attention. That has been a real problem at times and causes so much stress for me.

We have visited a new no-kill shelter in Edinburg and they will be glad to take any donations we have. So we are going to be gathering up her beds, toys, food, harnesses, etc., and taking them in there. I had just ordered a case of prescription food which they said they can use. It arrived yesterday and I am sure I could send it back, but we decided to donate it instead. The shelter is a very nice, large facility. Not a lot of dogs, but so many cats! They all had very nice facilities and were well cared for.

I also received word that a donation to the Old Fella rescue has been made in memory of Duchess. The readers of this forum are among the best people there are.

Good morning everyone. Last night I received a call from Gary Shapiro. Gary is in the hospital with cancer. The cancer has spread into his liver and kidneys. His reaction to the chemotherapy has been bad and his platelets in his blood are way down. Gary expressed regret that he will not be able to join us in Sevierville this October as his life style will be changing. He mentioned most likely he will be selling his home and moving into an apartment. Both of his dogs are in the kennel at his vet.

He will be in the hospital for a few more days then he will be moved to hospice care, If he improves he can be moved into therapy then he can go home. He will have home care from then on with someone coming over several times a week to help him take care of the house and himself. He didn't mention surgery of any kind so I guess at this point it is chemo treatment. He told me to tell everyone how much he has enjoyed the Old Fell group and the friends he has made through the years.

Gary attended the very first Old Fella Rally in Branson and many more through the years. He also attended the Good Sam Rver of the year Rally in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 2009.

Let us remember him in our prayers as he goes through this difficult time in his life.

I wish everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

Thinking positive thoughts for Gary, so he can be back with Shadow and Hannah soon.
