Casper 1994-2009

Posted on November 14, 2009 at 8:25am 2 Comments

I have to thank you all for your support and good wishes for me and my family. We loved Casper so much and she was such a constant huge presence in our everyday lives and we miss her more than you can imagine, or maybe you can. Your thoughts and prayers keep me going and I am so appreciative of you taking the time to write to us. Give your pugs an extra kiss and hug from me. I have no regrets because I gave her a great life and did all I could to keep her strong and healthy. I just wanted her… Continue

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our most

beloved Casper. She added so much joy to our lives each and every

day and we cherished and respected her and treated her like the Queen

she was.

She was the most charming, thoughtful, indifferent, insistent little

being who could stop traffic like nobody's business. She was

photographed by strangers who met her countless times and she had a

huge fan club who I know will all feel her… Continue

Weaning off of steroids and the Dr Goldstein PLan UPDATE

Posted on August 13, 2009 at 9:06am 1 Comment

After 4 weeks of slowly weaning Casper off of steroids and supporting her with all the homeopath supplements, Casper slowly got worse each day, mostly. her mobility. As I cut down the steroid she got less and less mobile, more stiff and painful to walk and hold her head up. she was walking with her head down... then her right side became so weak probably due to inflammation in her neck and sciatic nerve to her right side. she could hardly stand and buckled over 2 her right side. She was a… Continue

Dr Marty's Plan for Casper

Posted on July 10, 2009 at 5:02pm 0 Comments

Casper has arthritis in her elbows, and degerative disc disease in her neck. cushings disease from long term steroid therapy for the neck and elbow arthritis (yes a catch 22!) For Casper Cushings caused compromised liver function which caused degeneration in her eye health, thicking of the stomach and muscle weakness and atrophy in her hind quarters. She fell of the bed and hurt her neck back in 2005 and that's when she needed the steroid to help with… Continue

Visit with Dr Marty at Smith Ridge Vet Clinic in Salem NY

Posted on July 7, 2009 at 8:06am 3 Comments

We went for our visit and heard some great stories about dogs and cats that this clinic has been able to extend their lives in a quality manner and allowing pets to eventually pass from natural causes instead of being put down.

Casper has had mast cell disease since she was 1 and though they have never been cancerous I have had to monitor her and take swift action. at 14.5 she has very little vision left and chronic eye ulcers. chronic infections and progressive arthritis. Otherwise… Continue

Hi, so sorry about you Casper, was just looking at all the photos of such a beautiful dog. Very moving and to read about him as well. Calvin looks lovely too and so unique. Look forward to seeing more of him. Have a great week. Kiri and Muffy

Indeed you were blessed in more than one way with her. Trust me, saying what I did about Gyps brought tears to my eyes also, she was a one and only for me, as Casper was for you. God bless, and the right one will come along in time.

Madison, I know that it's only a couple of months later, just wondering if you have found another little one to fill that empty spot. It has been three years for me since Gyppsy left and is still hard, Malia took a bit of getting used to but she has given me Jeb, who is now 16 months old. She also filled a huge spot in Walker's (the father) life. He was as lost as I was. Just wondering.

I know how it hurts to love someone so, but it is better to feel the pain than never feel the love. My pugs, Sparky and Lilli, and I are thinking of you. Cindy Phelan

Hektor with Jetta and Cara

"Looking back at my boy's life, sad that his friend Jetta died very young. She had bad legs and very Mich else wrong. Hektor could be said to have been an elderly gentleman when he passed on."
