a friend sent me this a couple days ago

LEND ME A PUP

I will lend to you for awhile a puppy, God said,
For you to love him while he lives
and to mourn for him when he is gone.
Maybe for 12 or 14 years, or maybe for 2 or 3
But will you, till I call him back
take care of him for me?

He’ll bring his charms to gladden you and
(should his stay be brief)
you’ll always have his memories
as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise that he will stay
since all from Earth return,
But there are lessons taught below
I want this pup to learn.

I’ve looked the whole world over
in search of teachers true,
And from the fold that crowd life’s land
I have chosen you.
Now will you give him all your love
Nor think the labor vain,
nor hate me when I come to take
my pup back again?

I fancied that I heard them say,
“Dear Lord, They Will Be Done,”
For all the joys this pup will bring
the risk of grief you’ll run.
Will you shelter him with tenderness,
Will you love him while you may?
And for the happiness you’ll know
forever grateful stay?

But should I call him back
much sooner than you’ve planned,
please brave the bitter grief that comes
and try to understand.
If, by your love, you’ve managed
my wishes to achieve,
In memory of him that you’ve loved,
cherish every moment with your faithful bundle,
and know he loved you too.

I give Tumeric to my dogs 2-3 times a week. It is a wonderful product/spice/herb and I would be lost without it. About a year ago my girl was limping and we went in to the vet for X rays. The result was that she has what he vet called 'thickening of the bone' in her left elbow. Vet wanted to put her on Rimadyl and said it would be for life. That is hard on the kidney's (or liver-can't remmber which now) and I was not willing to go that route so began researching and found Tumeric and lots of good things about it,
20 Health Benefits of Turmeric

I found at my local health store a combination of Tumeric and Bromelain that was even better for my purpose.
Bromelain - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nadia rarely ever limps now. I need to get new xrays to monitor the progress of her elbow, but for now she seems so much better. I mix the Tumeric/Bromelain in with her Fish Oil, Vit E, Chondroitin, Glucosimine, and MSM with a raw egg.

I hope that your handsome boy has lots of quality time and memories left to share with you. My non-gsd girl was diagnosed last Jan and she is still holding on although she has lost weight and slowed down considerably. I will keep your precious boy in my prayers.

we were hoping that going back to the Pred 2X a day would get rid of the swelling in his hock again but so far no luck. It isn't as "squishy" as it was but still pretty fluid-filled.

Turmeric is highly recommended. Along with an anti-inflammatory I've read it has anti-cancer properties. Also dietary changes are incredibly important. Sugar feeds cancer so if you can eliminate as many carbs as possible the better. Tagamet has been found to have anticancer properties. It has to be Tagamet or the generic.
