Today, I'm joining Sean at Just a Jeep Guy DC in his feature called "A dogably pawfect Saturday." We are a family of dog lovers and usually have two or three dogs in residence. Since our separation, our dogs have mainly stayed with me while the kids switch back and forth between households.
Two months ago, one of our little dogs became critically ill with severe neurological symptoms. The veterinarians could not pinpoint the cause but speculated it was meningitis, encephalitis or a case of poisoning with some toxic substance. Within a day, he lost most of his senses and bodily functions and seemed near death. He was on massive doses of antibiotics, steroids and another drug for nearly a month. Now, he has fully recovered both physically and mentally.
As I blogged about this sad event, I was overwhelmed by the sympathy and support from the regular commenters on my blog. Thank you again!
Here is a video clip of our two little dogs running in the forest behind my house several weeks ago. We've since had a dump of snow and temperatures in the -20 C range. The second dog to appear in the clip (the black and tan curly-haired terrier) is the dog who was ill; the first dog (the brindle terrier with smooth hair) is his brother from the same litter.
