October 1, 2013: A scene of Shayna's morning-and-evening medicine regimen.  The pasty substance in the paper plate is a mix of chicken breast, white rice and sweet potato.  I make little "medicine balls" out of two of her pills at a time.  Click the image to see the specifics of the medicines and supplements I am using.

May 26, 2013: On the stoop in front of the UVa Rotunda, where my journey in Charlottesville began, in November 2001. Note Shayna’s left rear paw has a bag on it – she developed a sore that was treated on Friday, and which we must keep dry.

May 10, 2013 (1): Although this pic is not in focus, this is the smiling, sweet angel face that I see from my dining room table, which is where about 50% of my work occurs. How can anyone look into those eyes and not feel like the luckiest person in the world? I know I do.
