Brief Update on Neal

We took Neal to his regular vet on Thursday and he took a couple xrays. There were NO blockages which we were glad to hear, since his symptoms seem to point that way. There really was nothing out of the ordinary, so it is a bit of a mystery. The vet decided to do a barium x-ray, so sent us home with the barium to feed Neal. Not to worry there. It was cherry flavored and Neal would have drank the entire bottle. Hah! We went back Friday morning for the x-ray and everything was normal. He is acting better now and all systems seem to be working smoothly, so the vet decided there was no need to go further. Not quite sure what the problem was, but it seems to have passed and he is not in any danger.

So that is good news, and Neal is back to being his old, cranky, pampered self.

Till next time. . .

Glad to hear the report on Neal is good. Our son, David, just had our grand-dog, Chrissy put down. She has been declining over the past several months and the vet recommended it. She had lost control of bladder and bowels. Chrissy was 13 and a happy dog and loved to open Christmas presents! Darn, why do pets become like kids to us?????

Hi guys...are you back in Goshen yet? If so, eat a Butter Burger for us, will you? Or better, some prime rib???
See you sometime!

Janice, so sorry about Chrissy, but she had a great life. That's what I keep thinking about Bailey. Anyone else would probably have given up on him when he bit them.

Bob and Molly,

Haven't been out to eat yet. Too busy. If I have MY way, though, it will ALWAYS be prime rib. Now where is that Heinnie's schedule?

Good news on Neil. The pet family situation is a tough one for all of us.
