    Oh BG, I'm so glad you've got some answers and hope that Hooch is soon on the road to recovery.

    I hope your employer is understanding to your cause, and things are on the improve from now on.

    You and your family have been so amazing to love and care for Hooch so much, he is a very lucky boy to have been rescued by you and to have you to stand up to the staff at Murdoch until you got some answers. You're an angel!!

    Come on Hooch, keep those meds down, they'll help you, big hug for you darling boy...

    That's wonderful BG, hopefully Hooch can finally get on the road to recovery! He's so lucky to have ended up with you and your family!

    I dont remember the last time I cried so much as I have during these past 2 months.
    Coming to this forum for advice/support has helped so much. A kind word, a wish, someone asking about my baby.
    I would like to thank everyone here for being so supportive, it truly made a difference.

    We are struggling to juggle our lives around our dog at the moment.
    Son has an open night at school, one of us has to stay home with the dog.
    We are building a house - haven't been to the site in weeks. It's hard for us but Hooch seems to be getting better very slowly and that is what is important.

    He is excited when we take him for short walks (all he is allowed at the moment), he does this happy dance before he eats which is so cute and I missed it so much when he was very sick, he ruins his toys again - never thought it would make me so happy seeing him ripping a $40 super strength toy within 1 minute of getting it out of the packaging.

    His swelling still hasnt gone down which is the main concern - it is what effects his internal organs but his lesions are getting better slowly.
    New combo antibiotics *should* solve this - but it will take awhile and waiting to see if it works is no fun!
    Hope it all goes well for him and he gets back to normal because I have no life besides taking care of the dog and only dog people will understand it.

    Yep I'm with Sean. Poor Hooch's illness really rattled me. I would get teary reading your posts, then have been keeping my mum updated too because I think about the poor boy and just have to talk to someone about him. I am just SO relieved that he's feeling better and that you're seeing some of those old happy-hooch dances you must have missed so much. Please continue to keep us posted. I hope you guys get your life back very soon, and the wonderful care you've been giving your boy pays off tenfold.

    It was a harrowing illness, so unresponsive, and we heard how he kept going down, then down some more, then further down. It was hard to read, goodness knows what it was like being the loving owner!
    and when i read diagnosis, it seemed unreal? isnt that a biblical illness? Amazing what's still lurking around i guess. Ignorance is bliss perhaps.

    lovin the happy dinner dance. its the tiny things, that let you know, you have a very special relationship. May it go on for years n years now.

    I considered getting my cat PTS because she felt so very miserable not so long ago. We persisted and she is almost back to her normal self now. I totally understand the joy of watching them do this little things, especially those that used to annoy you, when they start getting better. Even just watching them sleep peacefully.

    Not many people would have made the kind of sacrifices you guys made and continue to make for Hooch. I hope karma will reward you tenfold. :-)

    'bunny-girl' - just love reading your updates on your very special pup - Hooch ! Heaps of kudos to you all - for all that you doing for him.

    Something I found for you - so have a read of these –only look at using Manuka 10+ or higher - but check with your vet first !

    Well I am so happy to read your latest post - it is good to hear that Hooch is making some improvements, you must be so relieved.

    What you have been through was so sad and stressful, you really have had to draw on some massive amounts of strength to get through such a difficult time, I take my hat off to you and your family.

    Go Hooch, back to your old tricks
