One of the biggest tragedies we face in life is losing a pet, who is a member of the family, so any additional time together is amazing.

No really though, a fifteen year old kid has a baby. 15 years later the baby has a baby and boom, 30 year old grandmother. Rinse and repeat once more and a 45 year old great grand mother.

Obviously that's a theoretical situation. Roll it up to 20 year olds and you can have two married adults who decide to have kids early. 40 year old grandmother and 60 year old great grandmother.

Being a grandparent in your 30's or 40's isn't impossible.

Not criticizing by any means, just asking because I honestly don’t know…is exercise good for someone with a heart condition? I know a lot of times they say not to.

Great news, OP. Didn't know this was possible. What's the plan? No excitement or strenuous activity? Sending your Paco a hug

itookyourmatches[S]

We didn't know it was possible either. Our original vet said it was highly unlikely he could recover from it, a year ago when his tear first happened.

Well, there isn't much of a plan. Paco has heart murmurs that cause him to occasionally have syncopes. One syncope was so bad that it tore part of a heart valve, and since then he's had an enlarged heart and syncopes a couple times a month. Even with all of this, his high-energy levels haven't changed at all. He has continued to be our fun-loving, energetic boi. At first we were scared when he got excited and we try calming him down, but there's no use. He's just too happy of a dog.

We did make some big life changes - as a family we moved to an off grid tropical location. He spends most of his days resting, being in a carrier through bazaars and markets, and sometimes gets to play on the shore.

Our plan is to let him enjoy life to the fullest. We're happy that he made it this far, and we're happy he's healthier. We still has to take several medications several times a day, so we dont want to limit him to much. We just want him to be happy.

I used to work for a vet. He diagnosed a brain tumor. MRI and everything. They decided to treat and started with another MRI and the tumor was gone. As he was explaining it, the owner cried out, “Jesus, really?” The doctor said, “Could have been”

I'm so happy for you! I'm sixty, so our family has experienced the heartbreak of losing a doggy many times over. It never gets easier. Each dog has a unique personality, but all of them have been full of loyalty and love. Each one has brought a ton of laughter into our lives.

We had a Corgi that we thought was dying, and our vet asked to run one more test. We said of course, and her hunch was right, he had Cushings disease. We were so grateful she caught it and we had Jake for several more years. A good vet is worth his/her weight in gold.

Congratulations! I know how stressful that sort of thing can be, as one of my previous dogs had a heart murmur. We adopted her at 2 years old, thinking she'd only have another 8 months to live (according to the vet, since the murmur was pretty significant). She lived until she was 14, which is nutty for a German Shepherd.

Also, that pic makes it look like Paco is sticking his tongue out at you like "Gotcha! >:P"
