Gunter and the Love (fears, frustrations, grumpiness) of an Old Dog


My dog, Gunter, gave me a bit of a scare this past week. He had some cysts on his head and neck, and they changed significantly, causing me to become concerned that they might have become cancerous. He’s going to be 17 years old in 4 days, and you know what they say… If you live long enough…

Well, he was seen by the vet today and all are in agreement that these cysts are benign and are not concerning at this time. Can you imagine, those of you who are dog lovers, the immense sense of relief upon hearing this news from the vet? Seriously. I’ve had this guy since he was 8 weeks old. I know we are way closer to the end than we are the beginning, but I’d like him to stick around a little longer.

In the whole of history of the world, there is but one thing that money cannot buy, to wit, the wag of a dogs tail. – Josh Billings
