nothing like tears first thing in the morning....spot takes over seattle.....not bad for a little dog tossed out of a car like an empty cardboard coffee cup.

Spot continues to work his way into our hearts…and the hearts of others. Spot had a drop-off appt at the cardiologist this morning. They called me to say he was ready to be picked up and I missed the call. When I called back, I said “I’m calling about Spot” and the receptionist said “Awwww…Spot….” When I arrived at SVS, there were three people at the front desk. When I said “I’m here to pick up Spot”, they all simultaneously said “Awwwww….Spot...." Then the doctor came to talk to me and asked me about Spot’s story. The cardiologist has also fallen in love with him and told me that if things don’t work out with Maxx and Sophie, she wants to know as she would like to adopt Spot herself—she is quite serious about this (her husband is a veterinary ophthalmologist). He is such a sweet dog…
Sophie and Maxx continue to evolve. This morning we had quite a bit of direct interaction without any issues (growling or avoidance). I hoped we had turned a corner, but after I brought him home this afternoon, some growling and avoidance started again. Perhaps they thought the “visitor” had finally left.
Spot’s appointment was as expected. I have an evaluation that has a lot of info I don’t understand but Dr. MacLean said that Spot’s heart disease is on the mild side of moderate. Without any reference points it’s difficult to tell how quickly the disease will progress. She also gave us a good idea of what dealing with his issues could mean for us over time.
Spot is a wonderful dog and we are loving every bit of him…Attached is Spot enjoying the sheep skin on our sofa. He is snoring on the sheep skin right next to me now…
