Mario, I didn't mention the reason for the stomach surgery, did I? It was to implant a cup and a half of "beads" in the poor pup's stomach. These are actually a medicine being tested to see if the it can slow, or even reverse, the prostate cancer the poor little guy (15 human years old) has. (I don't know what it is, but it's not radioactive and it doesn't cause the side effects associated with chemo in humans.)
His problem was discovered when the Dept. of Veterinary Medicine at Purdue took out the stitches -- and also corrected what his owner, a quilter, called "a mis-stitch."
Actually, if you have any good thoughts to spare for a nice small dog, it'd be appreciated in Valpariso, Indiana.
