Great to hear back from you. I'm sorry to hear that Charlie's skin isn't happy right now and that the tech gods are still not choosing to be kind to you. Are you still volunteering? I hope we do get to see you around here more often.
If you get the chance to see this message (no hurry), I wondered HOW that happened to Chawee's knee? One of my poodles pulled a tendon once..hurt him so badly he couldn't stand up, but a couple of hours later he was okay again, go figure.. happened while he was playing. He was running after a toy and skidded when trying to make a fast turn.
It's always good to hear from you. Is it pretty much just ICHC that you run into this problem with or does it extend to other sites. This has gone on for a very long time. I miss my Charlie stories. It's too bad that he picked up a skin infection and really unfortunate that it's costly to treat. I'll join your hoping that these treatments clear it up and he goes back to being a happy, healthy boy.
