Eye Spot

Piper had his annual exam today.  He is 11 years old, and thankfully in seemingly good health. We await the senior blood panel to confirm.  We recently found a strange type of spot on his eyeball.  Being 11, we assumed it was a part of the aging process.  While Doc did say it's due to aging, he believes it's a cholesterol deposit caused by a possibly low functioning thyroid.  Who knew?!  We will either confirm or eliminate this with test results.  The good news is, it does not affect his vision.  Yay!  So, sharing the news in case anyone out there finds something similar with their own pups.  Could be signaling a thyroid disorder.

There Was A Better Decision

Molly The Pig had an ending I'm sure she, and everyone else, wasn't expecting.  After being rescued from a hoarding situation and nursed back to health, she was adopted out to a family in Canada with the intention that they would keep her lovingly as a pet.  Well, that supposed loving family decided to not keep Molly as a pet, but to have her for dinner.  I realize pigs are raised for this.  I get it, but couldn't this family have gotten their pork needs met in a different manner other than adopting a pig that had already suffered and was prepped and entrusted to them to live out her life?  These people signed an agreement that they would keep her as a pet!  This just disturbs me.  Not that they eat pork, but the uncaring dishonesty these people have displayed.  While sure, it's not illegal, it sure seems immoral.  I do want to recognize the family has since apologized which I hope is a sign they understand their enormous error in judgement.
