Went from watching TM. announcement to taking my dog, 9 month old mastiff, in for a stomach ache. He is having acute renal failure and in stage 3 of 4. I'm devastated. Left him there for IV and intensive care. Always joked I'd never spend X on a dog and when they put the large number in front of me for medical I signed it. Would have signed any number. He has a shot at making it but it's been a hard day. Haven't told the kids. Feel a bit snake bit right now. Not to make this about recruiting but we didn't have a good day but we just missed. Nothing to worry about.

Best of luck to your doggie. You're a good guy for spending what it takes to give him a shot.

Hope everything turns out alright. This sure puts all of the dumb sh33t thrown around on this board into perspective.

prayers for your dog. my dog is 13 years old and has had 2 ACL surgeries. Soon enough I'm afraid his legs might give out and he won't be able to walk anymore. he's the best dog in the world. they are the best comfort in the world.

I hope he has a speedy recovery. Love my dog- certainly more of a dog homer then a recruting homer.
We will be fine- this happens every year.

Please PM me if you want a friend or any support as it relates to your dog.

So sorry for the bad news, I hope everything turns out positive for your dog. One of the few things I miss most with break up with my gf of 15 yrs is our dog, Chulo. He's almost worth going back w/ the emasculating wretch...

Sorry, they are like our kids. How can a person deny them a chance?

HDad and K9 hope everything works out. please keep us updated and know we are thinking of you and your best friends.

Had a tough week at work as this is forecasts and budgets week - the one thing I counted on was coming home and seeing her waiting and acting like I've been gone for 3 weeks instead of 9 hours or so. They're love for us never ends and so somehow we become more attached than we do with some humans in our lives - crazy but true!

Good luck - as an FYI on the limp my lady had that once and we were scared and had a day to get her in - woke up she couldn't get up and I had to bring her in carrying her so I was scared tless. Turned out to be Lyme Disease and with antibiotics was basically gone in 2 days! Always something but usually good news! Keep the faith

Dang thought this was another thread about recruiting so didn't click it initially. My thoughts and prayers to your pets Husky Dad and k9fanatic. They are family. I don't care what @Fishy says. They can join me anytime on my furniture.

Positive thoughts towards your dog.

The last dog I'll ever have died on May 11, 2011. Heart can't take it anymore. The joys always outweighs the pains and the memories live for a lifetime.

After a tough day of work, there is nothing like a happy tail!:)

I've been through 9 dogs, and 5 litters of pups. They all have their own place in your heart.

I once had someone say, "You must be used to it." ie losing a dog. No you don't. They are intelligent animals with personality, and each one has it's own personality.

Thinking of you Husky Dad and K9.

Thanks for the well wishes. Just got great news from the vet. Limp is not being caused by a bone tumor which is what they feared. She's been vaccinated against Lyme disease so they're going on the assumption it's a soft tissue injury. Vet gave her a cortisone shot while she was sedated and now we play around with the meds until we get her comfortable. Main thing is I get to take my baby home tonight. :)

I pray he'll pull through and you and my family will be in my thoughts and prayers. My 18 year old cat who I posted about a while back died on Wednesday and I don't know if it's me or the kids who are taking it harder. Best of luck.
