Arrival Story:
On November 13, 2007, Duncan lost a very brief battle with a brain tumor. He would have been 8 years old in less than 2 months (January 1st, 2008). He is missed desperately. :'(

Bio:
Duncan was very smart! His first command was "release", and learned quickly not to pick up certain items. This command was followed by (in no particular order) sit, down, stay, shake paw, high five, sit pretty, stand high (on hind legs) speak, turn circles, roll over, and a very pathetic "bang" (play dead - it looks more like "okay, I surrender").

I've Been On Dogster Since:
January 29th 2004 More than 10 years!

Living with a Brain Tumor


Diagnosis - MRI

On Monday, October 15, 2007, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor after 3 weeks of illness. Mama is really sad about this, but I try not to let it bother me!

I'm a bit worried about all the peeing I'm doing in the house, but mama doesn't even give me that "oooh Duncan, what did you do?" tone that she used to say whenever I've done something I shouldn't have done. She says that the medications are making me do this and I can't help myself.

I'm getting a LOT more treats than I've ever got before! Oh boy oh boy oh boy! Mama calls it pill time before she feeds me breakfast and supper, but I don't know what that means... I just know I'm getting a delicious treat that I used to only get when I do tricks for her.

Sometime soon I'll update the three weeks I was sick. I did a lot of traveling to see my doctors (and some I didn't know) during that time, and just didn't feel right.
