Arrival Story:
Harley was rescued from a puppy mill. My vet did not think he would "make it". He had tape worms, round worms and another stomach parasite. He had a huge stomach and looked like an overgrown mouse. He barely weighed 1 lb when I got him. He is very strong, happy and healthy now.

Bio:
Harley is so special that he has his own tattoo. It is on my left ankle (see photo #9). It looks just like him -when he runs his ears fly back.

I don't know what that means but my mom has been really sad. She has been giving me a Lot of extra loving and I like that. She has been taking a lot of extra photos of me too, I don't really like the flash but that's OK. The vet told my mom that I have lymphosarcoma. Mom & Dad talked about something called chemo for a while then they said they didn't think I would like it. The vet says if I stay on my prednisone that I could live another 60 - 90 days. Mom says that if love could save me, I would live forever. I just know that I like my home, the sunshine comes in through the window and warms my fur. I go outside and chase off the squirrels with my fur brother Skipper and it's lots of fun. Then we come in and go to one of our many comfy beds and sleep all afternoon. I feel pretty content just being here at home with my family.

 

Snow, snow go away....

This winter has been really rough. In December we got a record breaking 61.5 inches of snow. Mom normally lets us out of our schnauzer paddock and lets us run around in the BIG yard but now we can't. See my latest photo and you will see that we can't even get out of our gate.

 

Today I found out I don't have cancer!!

On Monday 12/8/08 I went in for surgery. In May my MOM noticed a bump by my shoulder blade. Within 6 months that bump tripled in size and started creeping down my rib cage. My Mom took me to the vet on 12/3 and they told her that even though they could only find fat cells when they aspirated my bump they thought that it was cancer because it was so aggressive. My Mom was very sad. She kept snuggling me and crying. She stayed by my side all weekend and I heard her ask Daddy, "How do you fit a whole life time into 2 short days?"
My surgery on Monday went really well. The Vet was able to get the whole tumor. It was huge! He said it was encased in some sort of onion skin and that was good because if it was cancer then it wouldn't have spread. Monday night was rough!! I cried and cried. Mommy gave me my pain pills but I still shook and cried. Tuesday was better, Mommy stayed home with me. We slept alot. Wednesday I felt better yet. Mom stayed home with me again and I even tried to play with Skipper.
Today though Mom got the call from the vet - He said that my lump was 100% benign and that I did NOT HAVE CANCER!! Yeah! Mom was so happy she cried, again.
