Arrival Story:
When mom and I first met, I was only a teeny tiny four-week-old furball. Actually mom just wanted "to have a look at the puppies" but fell in love with me instantly ! Don't tell her that I put on my super duper cutie face so that she'd pick me. ;-) A few weeks later I moved in with her and the rest is history...

Bio:
Mom takes me everywhere and I love it because I really dig (no pun intended) travelling! I've already been to Holland, Belgium, France (Paris), the US and Canada. That was actually my biggest vacation so far: a four-week-trip on which we visited my mom's friends! Boy, that was fun: I got to fly with mom in the cabin and was spoilt rotten by the flight attendants. During the four weeks we travelled from Denver to the Grand Canyon and to San Diego. Then we drove up up the entire west coast (via Arcadia/Pasadena, San Simeon, Carmel, San Francisco, Gold Beach/Oregon and Seattle) to Vancouver, Canada. I made so many cool new friends and it was exciting to have new places where to take my walks every other day.

Hey everypup,
Just wanted to give you a quick update on how I'm doing. Mummy was very touched that so many of you reacted to my being sick and sent her words of encouragement. The past few weeks have been tough as Mummy and Daddy have to come to terms with the fact that I might not be around for too long anymore. The vet can't really tell how long my liver will last, but so far the change in my diet seems to have stabilized things at least for a while. And hey, I get yummy rice, chicken and veggies now plus an extra vitamin formula - homemade food is the best. :) Anyways, I'm doing okay for the moment and my paws are better too (they tend to get all crusty and sore due to my liver not working properly anymore - sounds weird but that's what it is). I hope I'll be around a lot longer and that I can witness Mummy and Daddy's wedding in March and I also heard there might be a little human brother or sister in the future as well. Keep your paws crossed that I'll get to be there for all that fun! Power to the Paw!!! Smoochies, Chester

Went to our own vet again yesterday (the ultrasound was done at the clinic) who said that it's probably cirrhosis rather than cancer. It's still really bad of course, but at least this will give me a bit more time. Since mommy and daddy changed my food I've been feeling so much better (mommy keeps claiming I jump around like a two-year-old puppy - Phew!), which makes the whole thing even more tragic. :S Nobody can really give us a prognosis yet, but if the new food and medicine help, I might be able to live for another year or so. That's still not super long, is it? :( I want to be there for mommy's and daddy's wedding (I'm supposed to be the ring bearer). :S

 

Bad news! :(

We went to the vet today to get my heart and belly checked on the ultrasound. As you know I have a bit of a heart condition which isn't doing too great. But the worst thing was the result of my liver ultrasound. My bloodtest already hadn't been good on this front but today the vet found out that I either have cancer of the liver or a really bad cirrosies ( spelling?). He said that both look the same and only a biopsy could tell for sure but that wouldn't really make a difference as my liver is already very very damaged. :( Mommy has been crying for hours already cause she doesn't want to lose me. She refused the biopsy as it would only clarify things but not change the treatment anyway and she didn't want me to suffer through such a nasty procedure. we'll go back in a few months to see how things look then. The doc said I have a very bad prognosis and it could be anything from a couple of weeks to two years. :(
