    finally at least you know what you are dealing with! I actually have heard of this!! We had a dobie many moons ago..that would NOT stop growing! He showed symptoms of this and our vet immediately put him on a special food. He ended up being ok..but we had to be very careful of what he ate and also how much pressure was put on his growth plates. Poor Jack! The pain is pretty bad...give him big love from us. Boy..the doggie God sent him to the right place! YOU!!

    I gave him lots of kisses and he gave me lots of kisses. He was very happy to see us. He whimpered quite a bit but actually looked better, not that he is, but he looked it. He says Howdy to you all .

    Yes the doggie God definately sent him to the right place. I told that to Mike last night when we thought we may lose him.

    Hello everyone. Here's an update on Jack. He's hanging in there but not too much improvement (which was to be expected since they said he'd be there for 3 to 4 days). I visited him on my way home from work for about 40 minutes - we even got our own room. He still can't walk or sit up really. He can lift his head and move side to side but that's about it. He whimpered most the time I was with him and then cried and yelped really loud when he moved at one point but then he settled down. His wrist are so swollen. They changed his pain meds to fentanyl. They were going to start increasing his feeding tube feeding to every four hours to hopefully entice him to eat real food. He still wants nothing to do with food and they said that's due to his pain and nausea. Here some pictures I took yesterday. The pictures don't show how swollen he is. His IV wrist is a bit more swollen due to the IV I suppose? The vet said that his back legs hurt him too but aren't swollen like the front. Poor thing, he broke my heart yesterday but I feel so much better after seeing him. Not sure when he'll be home.

    This was going to be his weekend to have his first swim at the lake too. His life jacket just came in . We scraped our vacation for the best of Jack. We thought if he was walking and eating we'd be ok to go but he's have to improve 200% today and then 200% tomorrow for that to even be a consideration and after seeing him yesterday I don't see that happening. He'll have more time to swim later .

    You know our neighbor who Jack and Wilson go to visit all the time commented last weekend when we took them over there how she couldn't get over how much Jack had grown in the last couple of weeks. He really sprouted up and in length

    I'd say give Jack a hug, but it would probably hurt him. So save that for when he's all better.

    All your well wishes did not go unnoticed. Jack gets to come home tomorrow!!!! Long story short, he started walking sometime last night after I left and he ate some chicken. I spent 1.5 hours with him tonight after work and when I got there he was walking so good. They brought some wet special food for him and he ate it all out of my hand. I guess this bone disease affects the jaw too, whodaknown. He has his pain patch and will get another one on Friday. He's also going to be switched to adult food now with a lower protein. I'll keep him on Blue Buffalo and then I can switch Wilson to the adult too. He's coming home!!

    Here he is from tonight.
