thank you :)
iorek is a great dog. we have our little puppy now and iorek is being mr. mom to him and teaching him the lessons and taking good care of him. they wrestle and play and iorek is very gentle.
i wish that i could let my dogs play with my ferrets but iorek has a very strong prey drive and i am afraid he may hurt them, even if he doesn't mean to.
juvenile lymphoma is deadly, once they are sick there is nothing that can be done. it was one of the saddest things my husband and i had to go through. on thursday evening fawkes was not playing like he used to, he was mostly just speed bumping and that was it. the only time he ran was when he ran from me when i was trying to feed him some duck soup :( then friday when i came home for lunch he was very sick, i didn't think that he would be still alive when i got back after work. we brought him to the emergency vet that evening and the vet suggested he be pts that evening. he has a huge tumour in his chest that was squishing his lungs and heart and also a growth on his spleen. my poor little boy. it is still really hard to talk about him. he was lost in feb of this year. there were no signs at all other than the speed bumping on thursday evening, the day before he passed :(
