Sorry I haven't posted in a bit...no good reason why except it is the end of my short summer term and I've been busy wrapping that up, as well as moving ahead with things on my word of mouth book and, of course, taking care of and spending time with Cody. He's doing great...he's basically the same wonderful dog he has always been, only with a bit less hair (from the shaving). We start chemo a week from tomorrow. Our vets warn that there is a very small likelihood that it will extend his life to any great extent, but if we didn't do this we would always wonder if we should have. So we will. There are very, very few downsides with doing chemo with dogs, but we will stop if there is any discomfort or pain with him at all.
SPeaking of which...anyone watching "Ice Road Truckers"? We taped it last night....we sort of got a little hooked on "Deadliest Catch" and this is supposed to be sort of like that. I'm a bit embarassed to tell you this but I'll go ahead: we tend to eat up those type of programs while the 'quality' stuff like Simon Schama's Story of Art and Planet Earth await quietly on the DVR for those times we have nothing at all to watch. Oh well.
