Another Canine Health Update

On Wednesday, Spike started wheezing.We were scared because of the last time he was wheezing. We took him to the vet's on Friday morning; after  $600 worth of testing, we got the good news that he only had an infection. He actually seemed worse yesterday, but is not wheezing as much today.

Spike has just over a month to go before his 15th birthday.We're looking forward to the celebration. Unfortunately, we have to be realistic-it may be his last. It's been about 2.5 years since his major spleen surgery, and almost a year-and-a-half since he had a cancerous growth removed. He has arthritis and a severed ACL. He needs help on stairs and  he rarely leaves the property on his "walks." But Spike is still enjoying life and we're still enjoying being with him. 

We love you Spike.
