Arrival Story:
When I saw his picture on PetFinder.com, I knew he was going to be our dog. But I didn't tell my boyfriend and let him pick his favorite, too. And we both picked Furio! His first day home, at eight pounds, he picked up a baseball and started running around with it. He's been our little tough guy ever since!

When he was eight weeks old, a shelter worker found him at the pound in terrible health. His brother, who was with him, was so sick that he died. The shelter worker bathed him and got him to a vet and fixed up. Two weeks later, we adopted him! Now it's a few years later and our little guy has suffered from hip dysplasia & epilepsy. He's a trooper, though. After a bit of surgery, supplements, and medication, he's still our smiley furball!

Furio's Fuzzy Days

Sad News From Furio's Mom

For those of you who know our fuzzy guy, Furio, I have some sad news.

Furio passed away this week. He had neurological damage from a recent cluster of seizures. He was such a little trouper, but very quickly his legs didn't work, he was aspirating fluids and food, and his liver started to shut down, making him very sick.

We're obviously devastated, just so, so sad and miss him so much already. He was always our little tough guy. We are blessed to have such a special relationship with such an amazing dog, so we're trying to focus on that. We miss him like crazy and love him forever.

So it just happens to be my birthday and Dogster just happened to make Bloodhounds (which is part me) the featured dog. Odd coincidence...I'm just saying...

Thanks for the birthday wishes & puppy kisses!


Update on My Seizures

Things seemed to be going alright lately (only one or two seizures per month), but then my parents went out of town. I had five seizures in one hour and my aunt tearfully rushed me to the vet. They said she was more upset than I was and did some more bloodwork. It was scary and took me a little while to bounce back, but now I'm fine. (My poor aunt, though, is still recovering from the trauma. Mom owes her a dinner!) My mom is constantly amazed by my ability to not be too distressed over the seizures!

Thanks for all the positive encouragement! Woofs & Hugs!
