Oh, that is great news. You are so right on the patience -- I wish I had just a little more of that.

I am happy for you that Penny is showing some good signs. Looking forward to walking with you guys in the Spring when there is no ice and no snow and Penny and I can both go at an old ladies' pace...

Penny had a check up last Friday, and she is low in her calorie intake. It feels like we are stuffing tons of food down her, but she is super skinny. Don’t know if it is a combo of old age, cancer and chemo. She does have a strong appetite though. So we started giving her ensure, which has 250 calories per can. I got 2 chicken breasts in her last night. We have been grinding up a cup of dry dog food, a can of AD or tuna, and a hard boiled egg with ensure and water and syringing it to her twice a day. She is drinking lots of water on her own. We have to get more weight on her, that is a our goal right now.

She is still hanging in there though, and I still sleep on the couch with her on the floor right next to me. Thank you for asking. J

Lauren, Luna and Rory!

It sounds as though she is doing relatively well. This is music to our ears
I have just learned about the beauty and value of hand feeding. It can be a wonderful time to bond with our pups. It is amazing how we fall in love with them all over again through nursing. You sound like a great team
