This past January Dr Amy Cordner and staff performed an ultrasound and guided needle aspiration of a deep abdominal node on my eight year old service dog, Barley. The diagnosis was lymphoma. Due to his age I opted against surgical resection of the node, electing instead to begin the CHOP protocol hoping it was the more treatable B-cell variety and not the aggressive T-cell lymphoma that had taken a previous dog from me far too young.

Barley responded to chemo almost immediately. He finished the protocol in July and we were able to enjoy a motorcycle trip to Montana together. He is something of a celebrity in the long-distance motorcycling community and hundreds of riders followed his battle with cancer. Attending the BMW Rally in Billings was therapeutic for him, and I wanted to circle around to thank all of you for the fast diagnosis that gave him the opportunity to see all of his friends again. We’re not sure how long remission will last, but we cherish every day, every ride. Barley now has over 55,000 sidecar miles under his collar.

With eternal gratitude,

Dear Dr. Harnett, Thank you SO much for your thoughtful donation made to the ACVIM Foundation on behalf of my beloved Molly. I am having such a difficult time dealing with Molly’s death—she was that “once in a lifetime” pet. We had a very special bond and I miss her terribly. As hard as it is for me to deal with my grief, it comforts me to know that she received such wonderful care from you and your staff. I know that everything possible was done for her. You are a special person and I will always remember the extreme effort made by you in an attempt to pull her through. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for ALL you did!!

Dear Dr. Harnett,

This note is long overdue but no less heartfelt. Thank you and the rest of the BEVS staff for making my short and extremely painful loss of my beloved Miss Edna cat bearable. All of the staff at Green Mountain Animal Hospital, Mill Hill Pet Crematory, my family and friends showed me that true kindness and compassion is very much alive and well, and goes far beyond the extra ordinary professional training and tasks. While I still cry often from missing her, I have a new stray named Fitz and my other 3 felines, I am left with knowing how much some people care. It helps all of us.
