Comment on Black Jack's journey...

I am an animal lover and have an elderly terrier mix who is 17 1/2 yrs old. She stopped walking with me about a year ago when I noticed that her arthritic limp was much worse after a walk. I recently had to have her treated for possible pyelonephritis and cystitis which had caused 'accidents' in the house and most recently, diarrhea and vomiting alongwith loss of appetite. I don't know if checking this out might help with any of your problems with Black Jack but I thought I would offer it up. I do give Mollie a supplement for her arthritis called Triple Strength Joint Max which she thinks is a treat. I have had several Norwegian Elkhounds over the past 30 years and hope to find a puppy again soon. I have dealt with their 'going to their reward' several times and it is never without grief and mourning. I never think of the end of their lives when I welcome them into my life and that is a good thing. I endured this again with my beloved cat who was 20 years old. - I was reading Eckhart Tolle's book last night and he used the comment "This too shall pass" in a different way than I was used to using it. I have always used it when I didn't like what was happening. He suggested using it at all times so that we can remember that the good times won't always last either and to enjoy them to the fullest and not take them for granted. I thought it was a great perspective. Jeanne Gillespie, Denver, NC
