« Avery's Surgery | Main | Updated Website Now Online »

May 15, 2011


Avery, I'm so glad you're out of pain! I'm sure you're going to do very well with the heartworm treatment as well. You are just so adorable...I love that mustache!

Thank you so much for all that you do to ensure that dogs like Avery get the medical attention they need. From the wonderful volunteer who called you to see if you could help him, to the vets and vet staff that made sure his surgery went well to of course you and your amazing wife who agreed to take him in - you are all wonderful, special people.

Just wanted to say how much I appreciate this blog. Our 12-year-old dog was diagnosed with glaucoma when she was 3 and we knew that one day we'd be faced with removing her eyes. She had an IOP inserted at that time, and lost the second eye about a year ago. Since she's now an elderly girl, a second prosthetic just didn't seem right this time around. So we had it surgically removed. Like Avery, she felt better immediately. Because of this blog, I knew exactly what to expect and it made the decision so much easier. You guys do amazing work. Keep it up!

I cannot even see his eyes are gone, I am giggling too hard about his little Clouseau mustache. How CUTE (and giggle funny!) Isnt that how life is, dont focus on the "oh, how sad" things that are really "oh what a relief!" things. Look for the good and the things that make each of us different and cute little mustaches. Love you Inspector Avery.

I would be very surprised if little Avery doesn't get adopted. The picture of him after the surgery is so darn cute. Who wouldn't love that face?

I cannot express the privilege it has been (and hopefully will continue to be) working with you over the last 10 years. To be able to facilitate a rescue for Chopper/Avery because you could be there for him on the other end... Knowing he would get exactly the care he needed... Thank you thank you thank you.

Thank you for getting Avery out of pain!

So so so happy that Avery no longer has any pain. Big hug to you little Avery.

His little moustache reminds me of Inspector Clouseau. I imagine you will see a new dog bloom in front of you as the continual pain has subsided. It must be tricky caring for a newly pain-free pup that should limit activity while being treated for heart worms. I "heart" Rolling Dog Ranch!

So happy to see these darlin' doggies here, all looking so peaceful. Thank you, all, for making their lives pain free and comfortable and, of course, full of love.

I wish I could reach right into my screen & give Avery a hug. Standing there he looks like he's just waiting for some loving. I had migraines for years so I know the pain he was living with. Goldie looks to be watching over Louie while he naps to make sure he's alright.

Thank you for the photos. Our basset girl has glaucoma and lost her left eye in January. We're holding our own with the right eye thus far, but we've already made the decision that if the right eye must come out, we'll be sewing that side shut too.

Because of your kind blogging, I was able to show my husband, inlaws and our dog sitter what Sissy *MIGHT* look like...

I can't tell you how happy I am that Avery is not in pain any longer. Thank you to everyone who made this possible for the little guy.


So glad Avery is doing well and is pain free now. (hopefully.) And he certainly does have a little mustache. And if you look closely, you can see it has little points on the ends - he seems to be French! A little Fench mustache. How absolutely adorable! ha ha

Welcome home, precious ones, welcome home.... is finally good!

Great news and a good recovery for him, welcome to your haven!

Avery has been on my mind a lot, these past few days. Thank you so much, Steve, for this great update. It has certainly made my week start on a uplifting note.

I'm so happy (aren't we all?:-)) that he's no longer in pain.

Louie has made himself right at home, hasn't he?:-)

Rest well sweet Avery---darling picture of Louie and Goldie! They both can't believe how they ended up at the Ritz Carlton!!!

Little Avery... you MUST feel a lot better now. Just take it easy and rest up for a few days. Let Mom and Dad spoil you good.

Avery's little moustache makes it look as if he's smiling, and I'm sure he is smiling on the inside. At last he can begin really living!

That was the easy part, Avery. Now on to the heartworm. Restricted activity will not be fun, but you'll deal with it, I'm sure. At least your little head won't be throbbing and may lounging around is the right way to go. Speedy recovery, handsome.

Louie, you look like you've always been there. Kisses to everyone!
