Frank,
I'm keeping you and Kira in my thoughts and prayers today. It would be a truly grateful Thanksgiving if Kira could stay with your family!
Good luck...fingers crossed

I hope everything goes smoothly, and this was just some flukie thing that happened.

Cheers Big Ears!!!!

That appointment is tomorrow morning and we will know the results once and for all. We are carrying on though as if she is going nowhere which I pray is not just wishful thinking. Fingers crossed!

As for Ollie lol... just a matter of time.
Oh gosh I didn't know you were going through so much with Kira. You two are definitely in our prayers. Please do let us know how things work out.

Hey folks, thank you all for your prayers and best wishes. It truly helps to come here and see your concern and support.

I wish I had better news to share but a battery of tests and examinations by specialists on Tuesday confirmed her diagnosis I guess we have been managing things decently enough and kept her symptom free but her esophagus is badly distended.

It was like reliving things all over again when I was told but I needed to be 100% certain. Kira will be leaving us next week but we have a commitment from the breeder to get her into a home where she can be cared for and monitored more closely on a daily basis. Of course updates and pictures are part of the arrangement.

It will be a short run with Kira in our home but her place in our hearts is reserved forever. We love her very much and will miss her greatly.

Darn. Was hoping this a one off sorta thing. But you are doing the right thing. A 14 yr. commitment like that takes more then just good will and wishes of encouragement. The anxiety that would come along with this condition...I know I would never be able to leave the house. I am already nerotic with my dog...every sneeze cough, change in breath I'd go mad. Plus you could never trust to leave w/a border or friend...it would mean a complete change of your lifestyle....so don't feel guilty. Just love her and admire from afar. She was lucky to get her start with you

Happy trails Kira
