my dog, named after Brisco County Jr., a TV show I used to really like.
An Australian Shepherd Mix,
this little guy is an Amazing Dog--full of
Love with Energy to burn! Brisco was a stray who had been abandoned and
was living on
his own, roaming the streets for at least a month before I took him in.
And I honestly couldn't ask for
a better dog. In
addition to being cute, lovable and popular with the ladies, he also
has an earsplitting bark,
shatter any inanimate object within 6 feet and render a
person completely deaf within 7-10 seconds. Brisco is also bionic--
has artificial lenses in his eyes. Shortly after being diagnosed with
Diabetes, Brisco began to lose his eyesight--
a result of the formation
of cataracts. So I took him to see a specialist in Rhode Island
performed surgery, saving his eyesight!
In addition to
having Diabetes, he is currently battling Lymphoma, a type of
Cancer. Brisco gets all the medical treatment
as a friend of mine once said, "I would sooner go without food than
deny my dog medical treatment".
I would like to publicly Thank Brisco's wonderful team of Doctors and
their staff for all they have done and continue to do for this
wonderful, faithful companion and friend. Dr. Charles Perkins (General
Practitioner), Dr. Marcia Aubin (Eye Specialist) & Dr. Gail
