I just gotta say .... Mish was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer in April 2008 that is common amongst females over 9. They gave her 6 months. She's still with me & she just turned 12 on the 9th of December. The vet is stunned she's beaten the odds so far & I'm relieved she's still with me. Those of you that know me, know I'm not into commercial dog food. There's got to be something in all these theories if the old girl hasn't dropped off the twig yet.
She's a stubborn old cow, so she's probably enjoying sticking it up everyone & messing with their heads.
