    Great news, It can be debilitating though, and recurring. Son had it first year of high school and was off a full term. I at the same time had another similar one Barmah Forrest.
    Aces and pains, tiredness, all that crap. After a few return bouts for a few years we are both ok though I did have a low RA factor for a few years too affecting my hands. I suggest google to get more up to date with it as ours were about 16 years ago.

    It is hard to find anyone here without it in their blood (they tried to do a study but could not find enough people without it) many have no symptoms, many are only slight whilst to some it can be crippling for a while.

    I'll be having another read of the websites about RRV, although I got the idea that once you've had it you become immune to it...hmmm, must double check that.

    I am really really tired right now, had to drive into Sydney to pick up my boarder..thank dog the owners are lovely people who made me 2 divine cups of coffee while we had a natter (lol I always try to make sure I have time for a coffee with them). Might try for a nanna nap before I go feed the horse and the dogs.

    Mish update ..... she's baaaaack. I feed them their evening meal when the sport news is on. A minute before it was due to come on, Mish is sitting in the kitchen, drool dripping down either side of her mouth & an expression that said "Please Mum. Hurry up. I'm starving" She's finished & the 2 young 'uns are still going. Good girl Mish

    That's great GSD, I'm so pleased! How are you feeling today?
    I don't want to seem too ignorant, but I don't think, or can't remember what Mish was diagnosed with! If it is okay, I would like to know, that is if it is not too painful!

    Hi Greys, give us a yell if you need a hand.

    I Know diddley squat about horses, but dogs I can help with.

    Once the last of the puppets goes to it's home on Saturday I'll be chomping at the bit to get out.

    Don't mind leaving my two pups home with the others but don't want to risk those that deposits had been placed on.

    Take care & follow the doctors advice or else....I'll send Gemma around.

    Thank you one & all for your thoughts & best wishes for the old girl. You're all gems. I've been through stuff like this before & it's bloody hell when you've got bugger all people to share the load with you. I guess you can tell I'm very relieved to have Mish back & firing on all cylinders again.

    Boh ... you're not ignorant at all. I've not really talked about Mish's condition all that much except to say she has cancer. According to the biopsy report, she has some sort of cancer that is very aggressive, is prevalent in females over 9 & normally kills them within 6 months. I did have the name of it on my PC, but the hard disk died & the info is gone now.

    The story is, she's had a lump on her right anal gland that the previous vet should have picked up seeing she expressed her glands every 3 months. After Zena died under this vet's "care", I swapped vets immediately. The new vet picked it up on the first exam, but we waited 12 months to see what would happen. April 2008, it was still there, so they recommended having her glands out. The patholgy report that came back after her op said she had this female cancer & I had 6 months to say goodbye to her. There was nothing more they could do for her except make her comfy & love her until it was time to make the decision. The first sign would be weight loss. I weighed her post op & she was 32.5 kilos. So I said "Bugger it. The old girl can eat whatever she likes in that case." And she did ... Oct 2008 (6 month death sentence) came & went & Mish looked fabo, although I noticed a wee tummy building up. So we carried on & hoped she'd last through Xmas .... & she did. Come the New Year & I thought "You're stacking it on, not losing", so I took her to the vets for a weigh in. 36.4 kilos !!!! Time for a diet my girl. And so next month it will be 2 years since she had her glands out & got her diagnosis. I just weighed her on the 1st for Drontal & she's 34.4 kilos. The vet is just astounded by her continual thriving & so am I. At last year's check up I asked if there was a likelihood of her dying from old age & she said "I can't believe I'm about to say this, but there's a good chance of it. She's an amazing dog & continues to astound all of us. This is one of those cases where I'm glad to have been proven wrong so far."

    I'm trotting along OK Boh. I'm dosed up on Nuropfen Plus, so I probably won't feel crappy until I wake up tomorrow morning. And then I'll dose myself up again until the rib heals ...
