Profile: Update on my little CASANOVA Unfortunately, I had to take CAS back to the vet this morning. The spot on his butt that they have been watching and been concerned about came open, really wide too. They have to take him back to surgery and remove all that dead skin and cut off some skin to have NEW skin to suture together. While in there, they will check everything else and clean things up as needed! I am just so sad and hurting for my poor little dog! Today when I took him in the vet's office, is the first time he started shaking as we went in. He is alert enough that he has figured out what happens in "THAT PLACE" Poor thing! Well friends, the best laid plans of mice and men.....as I had planned to leave FL for parts North on Monday, the 10th, I have now pushed that back two days because it is what's best for CAS! We went to the vet this morning, hoping to get the rest of the stitches removed from his back end! Seems they are not quite ready to be taken out and don't want to take any chances of it opening up again!! Vet took his temperature, much to his displeasure, and he is running a fever. He has been coughing and like gagging the entire time through this and this morning for about 2 hours before we went to the vet's office! He has also been drinking a good bit more water than usual and is out of breath very easily. I have taken him for a very few short walks, at his request! He comes back quite out of breath. I'm thinking it is recovering from the two surgeries and anesthesia. WEll, after taking x-rays, it seems, he has the beginnings of pneumonia! Of all things! Thought he was doing so much better. It is not critical but you can definitely see more of an area that is cloudy than on the x ray the night he was admitted for his first surgery! So, the antibiotic that had to be nixed before to change to the one for the MRSA, is now being used for Pneumonia. At least I got my money's worth on that one. Hopefully it will help clear up the pheumonia. I'll send you an update on Wednesday. Remember, if I'm traveling, it will be that evening when I find a hotel room to take us both! Thanks again for all your well wishes for both of us and for your support. CAS and Debby

CAS, as we call him, is an adorable, loveable, cuddly active 4 year old. He loves to play, run, chase his ball and toys, best ones are those that squeak! He likes you to try to take them from him but I can't get under the chairs and tables where he likes to hide! Last Sunday he was viciously attackd by a pitt bull and is lucky to be alive. He had surgery to repair all the tears and holes the dog left and it was a traumatic event for both of us-watching it happen and trying to get them apart was the worst thing I have ever gone through. I truly thought he was dead when we finally got them apart. I am thankful to still have him as my best buddy! Deb MONDAY Unfortunately, I had to take CAS back to the vet this morning.
