  1. Luna was found in the neighbours garage tonight all safe.
  2. I am posting this for a friend. They went out for dinner last night and came home and their pug is missing. They are in the Moggill / Bellbowrie are in QLD. If you have any info, please post. I will keep an eye on this thread. Thanks! Jaana
  3. Our great dane Whitney was diagnosed with DCM in August, 2014. We were told she would be lucky to make Christmas. She in on compounded Vetmedin and Furosemide, and is still going. The medication has worked remarkably well, and she is now 11 yrs and 1 month old. She has not had any deterioration to her heart, as she was scanned again last year, and there was no change. The results were passed on to SASH for confirmation, and they concurred with our vet. She was also diagnosed with atrial fibrillation in November, 2015, and now with bone cancer last week. Remarkably she is still going, we can't believe it! Her DCM is well controlled, so her survival well past the prediction for a giant breed is a great bonus for us, although apparently the meds don't always work so well. Fingers crossed you have as much success!
  4. So sad for you. Whatever you need to do, you do. Heartbreaking. Hugs to all.
  5. Thanks, we will
  6. I know this isn't very active, but I thought I would post this here anyway, as I am still trying to get my head around it. We have learnt that Whitney has bone cancer, what type is a moot point. We have opted for palliative care, as with her DCM and fibrillation, she is not a candidate for amputation of her left front leg (even if we thought she could manage without it) as she wouldn't survive the anaesthetic and chemotherapy wouldn't help on it's own. It's in her humerus, and is showing only slight bone deterioration as we found it early. Her only symptom has been s light limp that didn't resolve with pain killers and rest. We are devastated as it's so soon after losing Harry, and can't imagine our life without a dog in it. The vet said her estimated survival is 6 -12 weeks at a guess. As long as we can keep her comfortable and happy, we will do it, but will have to let her go when she has had enough. We are loving her to bits. She doesn't deserve this (no dog or person ever does) with her heart problems as well, and remarkably is still the sweetest, softest girl. Her loving nature has not changed in any way and she is still a love bug. We are hopeful of a good while with her yet, but have to take each day as it comes. Thanks for letting me get it out, we haven't told all our friends yet as we want to absorb the reality first.
  7. Such a happy outcome. Good to see a beautiful greyhound in a great home! Well done
  8. So sorry
  9. Brought tearies!
  10. Whatever you decide, make sure you get the parvo vac. There is an outbreak on the south coast of NSW which has hit a lot of dogs. They did a mass vaccination last week, and about 1000 - 1500 turned up to get their dogs vaccinated. So many have not been able to recover, and it's sad that for the want of a vaccination, poor dogs have suffered and then died. Please titre test for immunity, or get the vaccination done.
  11. Thanks
  12. So sad. Sorry for your loss, remember him with love.
  13. Looks lovely.
  14. Hubby cancelled his registration with the council last week , and now I have to send hi Greenhound collar back. I've not been wanting to do it, which is silly, but I will do it this week. Miss the little bugger.
