Token Pictures!

Here are the promised pictures and update from Token’s (fka Dakota) new home. His original postings are here: TOKEN

Hi all!

We finally located a piece of equipment we needed to transfer the pics of Token. I have to pick up more batteries for the digital to catch him with the stuffed bunny in the mouth – he LOVES his stuffed animals – Whether we call him to go “outside” or for a “walk”….he runs & grabs one of those stuffed “babies” &comes running –it is hysterical! Here are 4 pics from his first few days with us:

Token’s seat

“Token’s Seat” – The leather couch, he really likes it there. Rich gladly gives up the couch when Token wants to sprawl out

Token sharing the couch

“Token Sharing Couch” – Rich is hanging off the side. They both like to constantly touch (Token loves to be pet & Rich loves to pet him). It’s quite heartwarming
Token with dad and bunny

the big picture

“Token boys and bunny” – Here he is with Brody (10 Year old Shepherd mix), Rich & his purple bunny that he just dropped (he has a pink one too) (I had to put a close-up of this picture, so everyone can see the intensity between Token’s dad and himself, and that purple bunny between them. Too cute! Helen)

Token and Riley

“Token and Riley” – Here is Token standing pretty with Riley our 4 year old mix.

His skin/coat has cleared up dramatically. He is still on antibiotics. We are also giving him Synovi (with Omega 3), vitamins & some herbs. His gums were quite pale the first week and we are happy to see the pick color come back this week. I ordered the book you recommended & look forward to reading more about extending a healthy, happy life for dog cancer survivors.

Thank you – more pics to come!


The book I recommended was The Nature of Animal Healing: The Definitive Holistic Medicine Guide to Caring for Your Dog and Cat by Dr. Marty Goldstein, D.V.M.


About Helen

I’m a Southern California living in South Florida. I’ve been here for 10 years as of October 1, 2007. No matter where I live, I’m a dog lover, and my breed is the Dobermann Pinscher of the Working Group. I am also fond of the Australian Shepherd of the Herding Group. My life revolves around my dogs, which is something those family members of mine don’t understand. So I’m an island in that respect, but have built friendships with those who are doggie lovers and respect the canine as much as I do. Some do rescue, some train in, compete in, and judge AKC trials. The common thread is our dogs are family.
