|Veterinary Specialty Hospital in Cary|
When I was waiting in the lobby the other day waiting for our checkout papers to be processed, I saw big German Shepherd. My first thought was about Dodo's safety. A big dog like that could have chewed up Dodo. And German Shepherd's can be head strong. I worried if the owner would keep control of the thing. I realized the dog only had three legs. I later heard the vet discuss chemo, so the german shepherd must have had cancer and or a tumor. This dog was bouncing off the walls and was quite the handful. What the hell was this dog like when she had all four legs?
A few years ago, I took Andy to the same clinic I took Dodo the other day. I forget what exactly was wrong with Andy. He had some clouding of the eye the specialist could not fix. Other than that, Andy was in very good shape. Watching Andy in comparison to the other pets in that clinic was like watching an Olympian stroll the lobby at a nursing home. A few years have gone by. Andy's bad back has limited his mobility. The arthritis has hobbled him, too. Now, Andy would fit right in with the rest of the typical clients at the clinic.
