Pecos’s Story: X-Ray

We took Pecos to the Vet to get him a chest x-ray as requested by the Oncologist.  The Dr. wanted to see if there was any sign of cancer in his lungs.  Thankfully, there wasn't.  Not only that, but shockingly to all concerned, Pecos didn't even have to be sedated to get two side x-rays...

Dandy really hates thunder.

Our Golden Retriever from Turkey has a really bad fear of thunder or loud noises.  When storms roll through she goes bananas running around the house looking for somewhere to hide.  We have found great success using the Thundershirt to calm her down.  She gets excited when she sees it pulled out and practically jumps...

Yuki’s Story: Finale

I'm not going to string this out. Simply put, Yuki is CANCER FREE! Recently, Yuki went in for his final exam and "re-staging" after finishing his 20 weeks of chemotherapy. They did lots of tests that day, blood, ultrasounds, etc., and it all looked good. They also took a sample from one of his lymph... Continue Reading →

Dandy’s trip to America

As was teased here previously, we have a new addition to our family.  She's about 50lbs, cute as a button and is named "Dandy". Dandy comes to our family from Turkey!  She is one of many rescue dogs (#turkeydogs) that have started coming to America from Turkey. The stories vary on how all these dogs... Continue Reading →
