    Dear Poppyx,
    I do hope Sammy is okay. As I said in my PM to you, I will be praying for you both. Expensive yes, all up $11,000. I know that does seem alot, but when you take on a beautiful little boy, you do what you can. My OH is a beautiful person and it is a year of savings between us to do what we have for Ralph. Money isn't everything and our hearts would break more if we didn't do all we could. I understand a lot of people wouldn't have the money to do it and I understand when they have to make the ultimate sacrifice. We are realistic and know that we will have to say goodbye to Ralph and have made the plans.

    I've had the laser engraved boxes done for all my dogs. I have just seen Cappy, Billie and Flash's boxes and they look good but Flash's needs to be redone as the pic didn't take.

    Perfect Peace Pet Cremations - Other Services - it's the top one.

    Sandy is at mums in one and the others are still at the crem place as I am paying off a large fee - I also had jewellery made with their ashes inside - one has an engraved photo - will post pics of them when I get them.

    I'm glad Ralph is home with you now, I bet he feels a million times better being in familiar surroundings.

    to you and I really hope you get as much quality time with him as possible.

    Thanks Tkay. He was so happy to be home. I had a little panic with his tracheostomy this evening, but all is okay. He just had a little mucus build up and had to clear it. I'm just nervous this first day doing everything right! The Emergency Animal Centre is always close at hand afterhours if I need to suction out the tracheostomy. Its just learning when to really panic and when not to.

    Default Update on Ralph 01022010

    For those who have been following the progress of Ralph.
    He had his stitches out on Saturday and this has made it much easier to clean his tracheostomy.
    He is constantly in a happy mood, eating well, sleeping well (on my bed half the time), doesn't seem to be experiencing any pain (keeping a very close eye on this). The vet is pleased with where he is at and his normal SBT antics.
    Only needing to do saline hydration on the tracheostomy 3 times a day/night as less mucus is being produced. These are done in the evening around 10 p.m., between midnight and 2 a.m. and again around 7 a.m.

    Thanks MAC, Di and Anne. It is great having this Quality time with Ralph. Just taking things day by day knowing that one day he won't be so happy etc. and that will be the time to say goodbye. But in the meantime, it is daily snuggles, cuddles and STB kisses and just having that special time together!
