Amazing Grace

Dogs are miracles with paws.  
~Attributed to Susan Ariel Rainbow Kennedy

She had a turn around today of epic proportion. Her doctor said she should be able to come home tomorrow. Hallelujah! She will go back in a week for an endoscopy to determine what the underlying issue is.

The food he recommends is by Royal Canin and is available here at Chuck and Don's Pet Food Outlet. It's not overly expensive either. He recommended Chicken and Rice. He said that's all that's in it. Luckily for us, Mark drives past the Calhoun store once a week when he goes to play tennis, so he will pick some up tonight. She'll be on a prescription diet for awhile, but the other dogs can start on the new food.

So, strike up the band, the girl is back! (Almost)


  1. Hallelujah. hallelujah. halleluuuujah!

  2. Mark says she's a bag of bones, but that she was happy to see him. She has been sleeping a lot, which is understandable. She has sloughed off all of the dead intestinal lining, so that's a good thing. She will have another ultrasound this evening and if that looks good and she doesn't take a turn during the night, I can pick her up tomorrow.

    I appreciate all of the concern and well-wishes sent for Grace.

  3. so happy to hear this wonderful news!
    good for gracie. :)

  4. I have an award for you. Please collect. :)

  5. Christy, I am cautiously optimistic. : )

  6. Wow! That is great news Sandra. I am so happy that she has made an amazing comeback!

    Give her lots of hugs from us when she returns!!!!!


  7. I think she went through a lot to take the limelight away from Howard. : )

  8. I'm just catching up with you this week - I am so glad to see that your girl is coming home and feeling better!


I really appreciate the concept and sentiment behind awards, but I cannot participate in them anymore. I have too may and I have not got the time to devote to participating properly. To all who have honored me, I am grateful but I don't have seven more things to tell anyone about myself! And I'm a terrible passer-oner.
