Default Spare luck needed!

3 weeks ago our 6-year old terrier mix fell off the exam table at the vet and hurt his neck. Last week he lost his "big sister" Retriever to old age related conditions. Today he's on his way to Nashville (3 hour trip) for emergency surgery on his neck because he's not improving with medication.

If you have any luck to spare he sure could use it...

I hope positive thoughts will help. I'll be thinking about your dog all day. Hope the surgery is a success.

Over the years I have learned that there are only three types of people in this world....those who can count and those who can't.

Thoughts and prayers for your little buddy.
I firmly believe that any mans finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle victorious.

You are making the extra effort to do the best you can for you K-9 companion. I well understand the close attachment you have for your trusted friend...I would do the same.

I hope all goes very well.

Art, you and your's are in my thoughts. Been through this last year, and also this year. Very difficult, but a part of life.

I'll be thinking of you and your's. Be well, Mark

Thanks for all the wishes and prayers. The caring and concern shown between members of this group is second to none, and is much appreciated.

The little one has been admitted and his surgery is scheduled for Wednesday. The surgeon says he does not see any nerve damage so we're hoping for a good outcome once they repair the ruptured disc and relieve the pressure on his spinal column.
