Gypsy – 1996 – 2010

February 6th, Saturday night, on my way to bed, I passed Murphy, our lab-cross, in the hallway. I climbed the first flight of stairs to our bedroom and in the near darkness, a dog flew passed me. Rounding the winding staircase, I looked up and watched as a white tail wagged in front of the…

Gypsy at the Lake!

Gypsy and Joan, August 3, 2009, at Matlock, Manitoba. For those following Gypsy’s story, here he is at the Lake not shown is his extended Manitoba family. He’s a happy boy!

Gypsy’s life continues to be a miracle.

Except for occasional pain in his left hip, right knee or left front leg that are continuing to heal, Gypsy is in great shape. He has returned fully from the aspirin experiment.

Gypsy, arthritis and acupuncture

Gypsy barely got up. I helped him to the stairs. Before reaching the first step down to the living room, he collapsed, jammed in the stairway. We got him down the stairs. He was in pain and I immediately checked his mouth to see if his gum was pale or that when I pushed against…

Dogs, weddings, and dinners

Gypsy – It has been almost two weeks since the last entry. To begin, Gypsy is doing very well. He runs and plays with guests’ dogs as well as Murphy. He shows no adverse signs in spite of his diagnosis. His hair is regrowing where he was shaved for intravenous support and for the many…

Easing In

We have been easing back into the stream of work – or at least Joan has. I have been spending my days and evenings at the Inn, which is on the same property. It is Saturday evening and Gypsy is resting on the floor facing the door. Kate and Joan have gone out and he…
