Many of you probably know Archie (the beagle/basset mix) that LOVES his treats during pick-up time. He is a fairly mellow dog with a ton of personality. He loves to “torture” his mom with his drama king act during drop-off…but soon settles in well to the daycare group. He’s been a member of our pack since April, 2010.
Last week, his mom Keri sent us an email letting us know that Archie has a cancerous tumor in his bladder. Below is the email that she sent to her friends and family, and we wanted to share it with you.
It includes a link to a blog that tells a step by step, day by day, account of all Archie and Keri are going through. There is also a link to donate if you are so inclined–every little bit helps. We all know how incredibly expensive treatment can be.
Archie has had the tumors removed surgically and with good margins, but still has chemo to face. If love and caring were enough to cure him, he is in the right household for sure.
We are all pulling for you Arch–and look forward to seeing your smiling face soon!
Hey friends, and friends of Archie,
Archie was diagnosed with a tumor in his bladder this past week. The oncologist decided it was totally operable and thought we best remove it right away as it’s most likely a kind of carcinoma (cancer). Archie has surgery yesterday – it has been a total whirlwind of a week.
Thanks and big hugs,
