Dada’s note: Dennis has had his visit to the cardiologist and has been declared healthy enough for anesthesia — his left ventricle is actually 5mm smaller than it was before, which is good news — so tomorrow he goes in for the additional testing that will require him to be put under. As of his weigh-in at the cardiologist, Dennis has gained back nearly a pound and a half and is currently at 45.4 pounds, after dropping to a low of 44 pounds. For comparison, Tucker weighed about 38 pounds for most of his life. Of course, Dennis is considerably larger than Tucker was:

It remains to be seen what the next round of tests tells us, but right now we are cautiously optimistic than Dennis is recovering from his IBD-related crash.

  3. Great pic of Dennis and Tucker together, and glad to hear things are going the right direction for Dennis.


  4. Aww, I didn’t realize Dennis was such a little guy! Our boy, Ryder, is 72 lbs!

    Our little Winter is 43 lbs, so I imagine she is close to his size.

    Hope the tests go well for Dennis!


  5. Cautious optimism is good, but we are so thankful there are some good signs. All paws crossed for good results tomorrow.

    Hugs and Woos – Lightning and Misty


  6. Oh yeah, D. You are strong and mighty. Good luck with the next round of tests. Mom and I said prayers and we know that you will be fine! Once I gained a pound and a half. Mom put me on treat restriction!! And said I am a chubby little meatloaf! So rude.

    Love and licks,


  7. Well done Dennis, you must be feeling so much better. What a thing when having a smaller heart is better: We are sure your heart is as big as Phar Lap’s. The Labradors are very jealous that you are putting on weight and being praised for it. Have a lovely nap!!!
