@Crowley you had enough hair in the tub to make another corgi!

 

My Corgi Dognapping story; We are very fortunate to live in a nice neighborhood with good neighbors. Our next-door neighbor had a full fence where you couldn't see into their yard and had a dog that would bark at anything, including aircraft near Los Angeles or New York as far as we could tell. Never saw the pooch but heard it all the time. One day I am working in my garage and turn around and there is a cute little corgi there. He had a cable hanging off his collar and I was afraid he would get to the road and get run over. I looked and saw our neighbor's gate was ajar so I assumed it was their dog as no dog was visible and there was a tie down there. So I take the little guy in there, hook him up, filled the water bowl, shut the gate and  went back to my project. Saw my neighbor a couple days later and told him I had put his dog back. He starts cracking up as it wasn't his dog! Belonged to someone else down the street and they had been looking for him when they got home and found a strange dog tied up in their yard! Their dog, the Perpetual Noise Machine hadn't made a sound when I was putting another dog back there! Well, the neighborhood all enjoyed the explanation of the events.

Thanks all.

 

So we have Brutus back and here are the unexpected results.

 

His lump/protrusion the reason we went, this is no problem, that is cartilage that grew on/between his ribs, these things happen and he can get old with that. So this one - fine..

 

Second...his intestines are not in the right place, there is a hole in his diaphragm where his small intestines crawled in. Normally this is caused by a trauma, but he hasn't had one.

So it is now believed that he's born with it.

We need to pay attention if he starts showing certain symptoms, but as long as that's not the case he can grow old with it.

 

Third and this is the scary one.

His heart is enlarged, quite so.

 

I have made an appointment for next Tuesday to make an Echo, this has to be done in another clinic.

That echo will decide if his heart is able to pump the blood like it should.

If so, fine...

If not, he will need medication, hoping that will assist the heart.

 

All in all, we went in for that lump and we came out knowing we have a dog who's intestines are in the wrong place and might have developed a heart condition.

At least it's not the big C.

 

I suspect the intestine thing is indeed something he's born with, and he has turned 6 with that.

Boxers have an average lifespan of 10 these days.

I sure hope his heart is alright or if necessary that the medication will help him to reach a normal age.

 

He has shown little or no signs of trouble yet.

Just a bit tired sometimes, but he plays and runs like always and usually he recovers quickly.

 

On the one hand I'm relieved it's not the big C or really life threatening but the heart thing worries me a bit.

Most dogs who gets meds for that survive a few years longer and a few years longer is all he needs to reach.

 

Again thanks all for your wishes and support.

 

Brutus is now playing with his new toy.

Glad the lump isn't serious and he doesn't have the big C.

 

His heart is enlarged because he loves you so much.  :winkthumbs:

 

Hope they can get it managed.

So glad that you don't have to deal with the big C. Here's hoping that your vet can get Brutus on some meds that will help his heart condition. 

 

Give him a hug from me, please.

 

Thanks guys I appreciate it.

 

Thing is, I can't shake this feeling.

I have been crying last night when it hit me, my Brutus is 6yrs old and has a heart condition.

 

There have been moments that now fall in place and make sense, where he suddenly stops walking and slogs along.

When he doesn't run to the kitchen for a treat when I make coffee.

I'm so afraid.

To me it's like his biological age of 6 is like 8 or 9 for real.

It hurts me.

 

Tuesday we get the Echo, I hope I'm wrong, and I hope medications will work and help to keep him with us for a few years longer.

But I fear the worst.

 

Very mixed feelings, upcoming birthday Monday, me and the family will go out for dinner tonight.

While I'm writing this Brutus is sleeping at my side on the couch and I can't hold back my tears.

 

I want to shake this sorrow and enjoy the time we have left.

It might be years or months, who knows?

I want to stop feeling so sad.

 

Thanks all.

 

A pic from last week, he got a new toy a ball that makes sounds.

He loves it.

      I made this last year for a challenge. It's taken from the scene in John Carpenter's The Thing where the Norwegian husky reveals its real self. I made the dog-thing from greenstuff, a husky head and plastic rod, and the tentacles wrapped around the other doggo are dental floss painted Dead Flesh.

      *******************
       
      Lucius joined the Order of Slayers as a young man, hunting Witches, Vampires and Demons felt like a calling to him.
      He did well, but he got overconfident and one day he went after a Strigoi Vampire without backup.
      When his crossbow malfunctioned the Strigoi was able to close in, Lucius was no match in hand to hand combat.
      The Strigoi lifted him up like a puppet and smashed Lucius to the ground breaking his back.
      Lucius was lucky that his fellow slayers had noticed his absence and had followed him, the strigoi escaped but Lucius lived.
       
      Lucius didn't give up though, with the help of the Order's Engineer he got a steam driven wheelchair,and they made a special weapon for him.
      A triple barreled shotgun that could fire silver bullets combined with a crossbow.
      Over the years Lucius rose through the ranks till he became Head of the Order of Slayers himself.
      Still obsessed to find the Strigoi responsible for his broken spine he's eager to fight as ever.
      His loyal hound follows him everywhere.
      One day he will find the Strigoi and then he will have his revenge.
