In June 2013, we were aware that our recently adopted Ray had heart-worm, as well as a list of lesser issues (heart-worm was the only fatal, if not treated, condition).
He was cleared of his heart-worm condition; an ear infection was successfully treated; fear aggression was identified and addressed; startle response was acknowledged and respected.
Now here we are, five years later. He has a personality that is quite endearing, and people smile at him wherever we go. Cars stop to let us cross roads, and we have discovered stores that are dog friendly together with restaurant patios that will allow dogs. Of course Ray knows every store in town that potentially has biscuits just for him and (bonus), he has been on his 10mg dosage of Fluoxetine for almost a week … and so far … so good!
How the world has changed for all three of us!
