Power of the Paw needed

***UPDATE***

Unfortunately Kodiak did not survive his surgery - the specialist discovered that his C2 and C3 vertebrae had been fused together, probably from birth, and on Friday the disc ruptured so badly that there was no chance he would recover.  His hu-dad made the difficult decision to let him go.

I am heartbroken.

You all know my friend Kodiak from the Thundering Herd, right?  (If not, why not?  Go over and say hi!)  Well Kodiak and his housemates were on a camping holiday last week, and on Friday he suddenly collapsed as they were taking a walk.  The vets at first suspected a stroke, but it could also be a spinal tumor, or an embolism.  He is currently under 24 hour care at the vet.


Since the vets do not know exactly what is wrong with Kodiak, could you all please send your best purrs and good wishes to him?  He needs to get better fast!

Oh no! We're purring for a diagnosis and that it's something that can be easily treated. Paws crossed for handsome Kodiak, his humans must be out of their minds with worry and stress.

We had hoped he could be a spineless pup like Spineless Bionic Hip/Knee pup Sam, but it was not to be.

Hard to believe he could be gone so quickly. Our hearts are so sad for The Herd and their Hu-dads. We know they did the only thing they could and we are sure Kodiak has met a lot of our pals at the Bridge.
