Sponsor Animal Update: Deuce
4th Quarter 2012
Deuce has had a few tough months this year. Last month Kate, his adopted mother, noticed a little growth on his side, so she took him to her local veterinarian. It was a mass and they had it removed right away, just to be sure. Thank goodness, there was no cancer. As soon as Deuce was home he was ready to go, but the veterinarian recommended he stay calm for a week until the stitches came out. However, on a sad note, Deuce’s dog brother Griffin, who was only six years old, passed away very unexpectedly from an autoimmune disease. They never suspected a thing, and he never acted sick. Deuce is now very sad and has been staring at the door for a week, waiting for Griffin to come home. At least one good thing is that, the day before Griffin passed, the entire family spent the day on the beach near their home, their favorite thing to do during the warm weather. It was a beautiful memory watching the two in the water. A special bond has grown between Deuce and the cat that he never showed any interest in before. At night, they will run up and down the hall taking turns chasing each other, making quite a bit of noise. The weather is now cooler and they are taking extra long walks, one of Deuce’s favorite things to do.
