Cookie Monster

We bought Shelby some nice cookies for dogs at Primrose Bakery. I brought some with me on our last trip to the office. Here she is, sitting on my lap, trying to WILL the cookies into her paws.

Come to me cookie

What an amazing site and an amazing Dog. Our pug Gino, 10 months, is in the hospital right now with what they belive is a liver shunt. Have you had any experience dealing with this situation, we are very scared, and hoping to get as much information as we can to make the best decisions for our pug. Thank you.

Poor Gino. No, we haven't had any experience with this. Perhaps some other readers have?

Looks like the options are surgery, or medication forever. Poor puggy!

Thank you for the kind wishes for Gino. We saw him last night. He was very happy to see us. He will be coming home tonight (his sister Gia will be happy) and we are planning for surgery in the next few days. If its ok with Shelby, I will keep you posted here. Thanks in advance Shelby. Your awesome pictures are keeping my spirits up that things will return to normal for Gino. Thank you all again!

Yes! Please do keep us posted.

Gino is Home! But not out of the woods yet. We have elected to have the surgery. He is back to normal as he literally yelled at Nicole and I the entire way home from the hospital. Gia, his sister, was very glad to see him, and very glad to join him in his new diet, which appears to be very tasty. I will let you know how the operation goes.

Hello,
I wanted to let you know that Gino lost his fight. He had a successful surgery to repair the shunt, however after two day he started to seize (for which there is no definet explaination) and the doctors were unable to stop it. He was suffering from swelling of the brain, he was going blind and there was predicted serious brain damage. I had to make a terrible choise, but was with him until the end. My wife and I have never felt such a loss. We seek comfort in knowing that he is now watching over us all.
