“Sometimes things become possible if we want them bad enough.” ~ T. S. Eliot
He’s back. The entire month of July was spent in Addison’s purgatory with Djingo. I was sure he would die this time. On Wednesday he seemed to turn a corner and began to eat some cooked barley and chicken. I was hopeful until Thursday when he vomited what seemed to be everything he had eaten in the past 48 hours. Then Friday he started eating again – couscous and hamburger, and right now he is eating like a champ. It’s still couscous and meat, but if that’s what he wants to eat, then that’s what I will feed him. Of course it’s couscous, Sloughis are, after all, Moroccan.
I am thankful to everyone for their good wishes and especially those of you who took the time to let me know you were sending him your support through phone calls, emails and text messages, especially my beloved friend, Ermine, Djingo’s breeder, who has lived this month with me. I have the best friends in the world. I am especially thankful to the best vet in the world, Dr. Kurt Klepitsch, for being an extraordinary veterinarian, professional and human being. And I am thankful to Djingo, for deciding to stay.
