    Petey is a beautiful pup Don... But I really like the fact that YOU are kept within the cage and HE gets the big room with sliding glass doors to the patio :lol: :lol:


    :lol:

    He is the best. He has one brown ear and one white :D

    I would like to thank everyone for the heart felt wishes and the love and support you guys been giving. It realy is a feeling like no other.

    There realy is no way to describe how this fan club surpasses all others in the love for the band,the 10club and each other. Of course we have our quarrels. Every family does. Its what we do when we have a tough time and this community is tops above all others.

    Each and every one of you have a special spot in our hearts. Thank you. :D

    Bump for dogs! I'll throw in some items too for the cause... if anyone wants them, PM me first and if I still have it then PM Don - send the money to him, send me your info and I'll ship the stuff out. I've never met him, but hearing how much he's going through for his dog means he's a good guy...

    (im on the trader list so you dont have to worry about me short changing it. will take a few days to ship out as I have family in town, but i promise I'm good for it!)

    Better Days #d 7" $15 shipped in US, extra overseas
    PJ bouncy ball $15 shipped US, a few extra overseas
    Got Some/Just Breathe #d 7" - $40 shipped in US, extra overseas


    I know these aren't the cheapest prices ever, but they're about going rate and its for PETEY!

    Sorry to hear about the doggie.

    Someone at least needs to buy that Toronto '06 poster and the Oakland EV poster... I have both of those already and they are fucking AWESOME prints in person! Toronto is one of the best PJ posters of all time if you ask me... can't go wrong for that price! Good luck Don!

    How's Petey doing today? and hows the family holding up?


    Petey has been in the Hospital the past few days since Friday early morning.

    We have been at the vet checking on him every few hours when he starts to come out of his sedation. Seems when the meds wear off he begins to convulse/seize. Some worse than others. Some times its just the 1 and other times he comes out of it and stumbles around just to start seizing again.

    He seemed to have a positive reaction to the medicine at first and now it seems they have to keep him highly medicated so he dont go through it any more.

    We still have yet to see if his brain was damaged by the fever or the seizures. The test they ran for brain bleeding came back negative. So thats a step in the right direction.

    Please keep Petey in your thoughts. Thank you to all who have been in contact and those who havent but have been hoping for the best. It helps a lot know you all are here for us.

    Thanks so much. try and post a better update when I am less emotional. Its hard to post about my buddy when he is in a bad spot. :(

    I also have a dog that has seizures, I feel for you :cry:
    I can donate the Christmas single that just came in the mail this week, I haven't had a record player since I was a kid so this wasn't ever going to get played, also I can throw in the Philly Mia liberty bell sticker. Not sure how much these are worth to anyone but they can send the money to you and ill ship it out.

    A white staffy munched our soccer ball in the park yesterday - thought of Petey and family. Hope 'Peto' is well on the mend. Continued best wishes to you all.

  • Hey Don. I'm thrilled for you that your awesome dog Petey seems to be on his road to recovery. That is great news. We have an epileptic dog and she has been seizure free for many years thanks to her daily medicine. I hope you can have the same results with Petey. I also sent you a PM.

    Best of luck and Cheers!

    I posted the update on page 1 im sorry to have to give this news. :cry:

    Thank you to every one that has helped my family with what was a horrible week for us. We tried to do all that we could but to no avail we lost the good fight.

    Sadly we had to put Petey to sleep yesterday. I wanted to let you all know sooner but I was just to heartbroken to reply the news.

    Petey ended up having Valley Fever. This is a mold spore found in desert areas that effect humans and animals. Some people get pneumonia like symptoms. Others can just get the neurological part of the virus.

    Petey didnt show any signs of being sick. He sneezed a lot but we were told it allergies. The Valley Fever is what caused the seizures. It was contracted a minimal of a year ago the Vet says and because he was so young and healthy he just didnt show any signs until it was to late. The disease spread into his nervous system and the size of the seizures and the frequency caused just to much brain damage it was in his best interest to let him go.

    As you can tell we are all saddened. But it was very uplifting for us and especially my young one to read all your positive wishes and heart felt prayers.

    I couldnt stand the fact of some one taking my dog so I took him out to his favorite walk along the mountains and laid him to rest there so he can watch the sun set. We will think of him at every sun set now. There will be not be another goofy dog quiet like Petey. He will be loved and always missed.

    Maybe PJ can play Sad from Lost Dogs on Sunday in memory of Petey.

    Thank you.

    Oh my god I am so sorry. When we did not hear any news I worried there had been a turn for the worse. Will continue to keep you all in my thoughts.

    RIP Petey. I never met you but I feel like I knew you.

    oh Don, I am so sorry to hear this. My heart just sunk to my feet seeing this news. Was hoping he would hang in there. Dogs are absolutely the greatest gift from life. I just wish we never had to give them back as we just borrow them.
