ransom

we look to the days ahead. excellent news at the vet today. a brief scare in thinking his spleen was enlarged, but the ultrasound of his belly proved that his once lean(er) body had given way to a plump frame due to treats, ice scream, spaghetti, milkbones, and chips (among other things). of course, the 5 pound weight gain clued us in too :O) i swear my buddy just wants to keep living to see what new food he can try each day! i think we might start calling him Potato Sack or Spud cuz he sure resembles one. diet commenced a couple weeks ago but we'll have to cut back a bit more. and even with the recent tumor growth, the vet is not concerned and in her (music to my ears) words, said: "he looks amazing K" and sent us on our way.

  6. Every time you post a picture of Ransom I proceed to read with trepidation, fearing the worst happened. I'm a big coward when it comes to these things, you know. There is NO SUCH THING as being prepared. Today, THANK GOD, the news was good and I'm going to dwell in it till I get sick of it:0)
