We took Bing and Natalie to visit Santa... Natalie is in the other pets section but here is Bings photo.

I didn't realize that we were taking Bing but the morning of the visit my husband says to me that he wanted to take Bing to see Santa so he could get a photo to send to Dr. Chick Weisse at the Animal Medical Center in NY... Bing was born with a liver shunt and severe Micro Vascular Disease... we got him back at age 4 months when it was discovered that he was sick.... we also learned that he was neglected during hte time that he was gone from our home. We were told he would live about a year with just medical management but that there was the potential for a normal life with an experimental surgery/intervention. To make a long story short

Bing had the procedure and he will be THREE the day after Christmas

The vets at the Animal Medical Center were wonderful and hubby wanted this photo to send to Chick along wiht a note saying thank you for saving our boy.... We don't know how long Bing will live... so far his bloodwork looks good but we know he has hundreds of Micro shunts... but he has lived longer than anyone expected and he continues to do great and thats all thanks to Chick.

This picture of Bing is so very special, he's beautiful. I hope he continues to do well, each day truly is a gift isn't it?

An early Happy Birthday to your beautiful Bing.

What a very special picture of Bing! Dr. Chick Weisse should treasure it almost as much as I'm sure you will!

I hope he likes it... they were so good to us when we brought bing down there and Bing is certainly a success story... I would think he would like to see the dogs that were so sick doing so well

That is a great picture. Bing looks like he enjoys being next to Santa. Hopefully he will enjoy many more pictures with Santa in the future.
