    Radar's sister, Calli had a real swollen left eye this morning. I got her into the vet this afternoon and she is staying overnight. I was hoping it was simply a wolf but the vet says that it is either an absess or a fast growing tumor. Neither is good and I won't know what this is going to bring until Sat morning. Some may remember that I had to give up Radar just a few weeks ago and I am really sweating over this now. I feel that I know what to expect but I'm just not ready to admit it yet.

    I just got back from the vet with Cali. It turns out to be a scratched cornea causing all the swelling. She is responding to medications and the swelling is all but gone. It was a real mess to wash off all the drainage from around the eye. She talked all the way home and went straight to her favorite spot on the safe and stretched out.

    That's good. I'm glad it's all going to work out then.

    Thanks all. The support you all expressed was really appreciated when I lost Radar. We all think of ourselves as able to handle anything. We are big and strong and see many things in our work that is bad and don't let it affect us. However our pets are just like family and in some ways are more. They ask for little and when we are feeling down or sick they are there to comfort us. When we have to make the decision to let them go it is traumatic but that is another thing that they require from us. It is never easy, but we know it is in their best interest. Some of them are with us for many years (Goldy is 22) and some are here a shorter time. However, they all make their mark in one way or another.

    I have enjoyed reading the posts here and many have brightened my day.
