Dickens Almost Died…

Dickens almost died this week. Never saw a dog so sick. He neither drank nor ate for 3 days. Withdrew and was more zombie than dog. We expected to find his corpse each morning. But he toughed it out and saw it through. 12 year old Cavaliers play hurt and hang in.

Let’s hear it for Dickens – dog of the week!

    Whew – I am so glad your little Dickens pulled through. He is not all that old, this gorgeous dog. Was he ill with some infectious disease, or did the stress of your move precipitate his ill health? I know in the case of my friend Carol’s Cavalier King Charles who was only four years old, whenever there was an upheaval in circumstance in their lives, he became very ill. People do that too, and why should dogs be any different? This is a beautiful photo, Roger. G
