Hi Sherry,
Nice to hear from you! I can't believe it's been that long since Fred's been gone. I just wanted you to know that when you posted your experiences with Fred, it helped me a lot with Sadie, especially when you started with the mirtazapine. I was able to get some right away and it has helped with Sadie's appetite although it's still touch and go with us. I don't know how much longer I have with my Sadie but I am very grateful because for sure your posts have extended out time together.

Glad you have Abby to keep you company.

You have a great summer too!

Judy (and Sadie)

So glad you stopped in to say hello. Funny how two months can seem like a short time and a long time - all mixed in one. I'm sure Fred is watching over his family and is happy to know Abby is helping the healing process. Look forward to some pictures as well.

Good to hear from you, Sherry and glad the pup is taking some of the pain away at least for a while.
