Notre petite furette Bailey a la même chose que ton Max je crois, mais elle est encore alerte et apte à faire plein de chose depuis au moins 2 ans… Elle a été sur la Prednizone jusqu’à il y a environ 6 mois. Elle semble “stable” malgré qu’elle a le “genoux” super gros et qu’elle ne peut plus le déplier. Mais elle est faite forte et elle grimpe et cours quand même!

I must comment to say that your words are most touching, Victoria. Although we met only once (on Sherine & Scott’s big day), I feel compelled to share my sympathies to you, Gabi (and lil’ Rudy)… pets are HUGE contributors to our family life and happiness. I’m very sorry for your great loss (and losses).
