Almost Unbelievable

Have you ever gotten news so good you just can't get your head around it???

I did today - and honestly I think I am still in shock.

The news is about Rocky.



Remarkable, incredible news about Rocky.






Yes, it seems he has stepped off Death's Doorstep and slammed the door shut behind him as he was walking away.


NO KIDDING!!!

For all those that say 'We knew it' - please know we didn't. His diagnosis was very clear and in chatting with his wonderful vet Tannis numerous times over the past 10 days NEVER have we talked about 'IF' he got better. That simply wasn't a real option.

I guess I neglected to tell Rocky that....THANK GOODNESS!!!


He has gained 7 lbs in the last 10 days and his blood work is just a hair away from normal. Tannis says that not only is he going to live - which would have been enough on its own - he will be able to be a sled dog again one day. Not for Iditarod this year, but one day.



My head is still swirling - good swirling - but swirling.

I had mentioned to a friend yesterday that Rocky was looking and acting so good that it was hard not to hope - but that I was worried about getting my hopes up.

Their reply was  - "Well if you can't wish and believe, then guess there is no chance..." 

So quietly I did. 
All you had to do was ask, I could have told you!
...and as for an 'official' explanation for his remarkable and FAST recovery: "Livers are amazing organs and he must really be a Rockstar!"

We could not be happier!

Oh Karen I am so happy with your news. And I am very happy for Rocky too. He has been on my mind because of Cinnamon who only lived 6 months but hers was hepitis and it was a big liver that did not change. I am so happy Rockys is so so much better. You have done so well with him and 7 lbs How wonderful so happy for you both. Sending big hugs to Rocky.

So happy to hear he is improving. May this continue for the months ahead in his recovery. My Beckitt sends Paws Up in his fight with liver failure--she says it is not easy

Thanks for the fantastic news! I remember someone else said their dog had recovered from something similar.
As far as giving up the couch: I'm sure he will be happy to be back out with his buddies.
