hey all! Just giving an update on Gus! He's on heart medication and diuretics and now a completely raw diet and he's doing great energy wise. He seems to be hanging in there. He was throwing lots of arrhythmias recently and had to be seen again. When he was brought in they heard rales in his lungs and increased his diuretic load among his other medications. We did a Holter and apparently it's just getting worse and worse. Which is disappointing because he seems like he's been doing better than he had been in a long time. He is ten, and he's huge, and im just grateful for the time that I do have. We went to the river the other day and I captured this photo of this old man just LOVING life. And I wanted to share with my doberfamily ❤️ I'm sorry for the kinda lame quality I'm on my phone and I can't seem to get it to upload a better version, so hopefully you all can still see it!

Hi! And thanks for the update on Gus. I'm glad to hear that Gus is still keeping you company. Wow... 10 yo. and enjoying life. A while back we had a Dobe with DCM, who also continued to have a great life even with this nasty disease nipping at his heels.

Go Gus!

Great to hear from you. I wanna see a new smiley picture

I went back looking for one here and all I could find was this old photobucket one:



Surely we deserve an updated shot. Or even an old one will do—they always are a hoot.

That's a beautiful photo of Gus.

I'm sorry you and Gus are struggling with the ups and downs of this disease. I hope you still have a lot of quality time left together, and I'm glad he's loving life so much and doing better than he was before.
