The Preacher Chronicles

I suppose I should think about changing the name of this blog if all I am going to talk about is Preacher. But he is about all that is on my mind these days so you are stuck with him as well. So, major progress in the last two days. His chemo was Tuesday. He felt pretty poopy Tuesday night I think, not worse but not better. But yesterday and today? Sooooo much better. If yesterday was good, today was great! He is eating Actual dry dog food which he has not eaten in well over a week. Tonight we were talked into leaving to go to a movie. I knew it was a good idea to get out but I was a nervous wreck. I called my dad and asked him to go check on him while we were gone just so I could actually go without having a panic attack. So we just got home and he actually RAN, well, maybe it was more of a trot, but still he came trotting to the door to greet us! My body was torn between crying, laughing, or jumping up and down. I settled on giving him huge hugs and kisses by the ton.

I'm so excited that your dog is responding well to the treatment. It would be terrible to go through the treatment only for it to not work. I remember when my dog was dying of Lyme disease and I had to give her an IV every day... Twice a day, on my way to school and as soon as I got home, and the afternoon that the fluids built up in her shoulders, creating a huge lump... it's an awful feeling.

Basically, I'm so happy for you. And thank you so much for all that you do for animals who need you.
