Dino Update

Dear Friends, thank you for all the messages and well wishes for Dino, I'm sure he feels like a celebrity dog by now.
Unfortunately the news today has not been good.  Dino's face continues to swell and it does not look as though we have reached a turning point.  His eyes have swollen completely shut and there is a danger that he might start having trouble to breathe, in which case a tracheotomy will be necessary.  The vet is monitoring his condition carefully. 
On the positive side, his vital statistics are OK, and his kidneys are holding up.
Here are some ghoulish pictures taken this afternoon:

 This is a healty Dino doing a bit of gardening last December.
 Let's continue holding thumbs that he will be back to his usual self very soon!

On a positive note, things went well at the miniatures fair today, and we are looking forward to more of the same tomorrow.  All a bit overshadowed by worry over the dog, but it was nice to see so many friends.  



  1. Megan, I really don't know what to say. We have been so worried about Dino. I wish we could be there to help with whatever you need.

    Please know that he is in our prayers, and I will put him on our Church prayer list tomorrow at service.


  2. Poor Dino, I do hope the swelling goes down and he feels fit again. It is terrible to see our pets suffer.
