THIS JUST IN: Get Well Soon, Beauregard

“Some years ago we sent in a picture of our Schipperke puppy, Beauregard, laying on a dust mop as I pushed it around our floor. An astute reader called him a “Swifferke” and the moniker sticks to this day. Beauregard just had a small mass, a soft-cell sarcoma, removed from his hock last week. He’s at UC Davis and is having surgery today to clean out all the margins of that mass. He’ll start radiation in 2 weeks. I hope all our C.O. fans will send prayers, karma, positive thoughts Beau’s way for a speedy recovery. His prospects are good, and we appreciate all your support.

With C.O. love,
Deborah G., Vacaville, CA.”


UPDATE 4pm PT: “We haven’t heard from the vets so he may still be in surgery. He’ll spend tonight there and we’ll pick him up tomorrow.”
