[color:#000099][font:Book Antiqua]SANDERï¿½S BOOK: The Education of a Dog Owner
By Connie Burnet
In 1998, when Connie Burnetï¿½s Sheltie, Sander, was 7 years old, he was diagnosed with cancer in the form of a malignant oral tumor. The vets said it was inoperable and unstoppable, and they doubted that Sander would live more than a few more months.
Knowing that conventional cancer treatments were not an option for her dog, Connie worked with an herbalist to support Sanderï¿½s immune system, to arm it to fight the cancer, and to keep the quality of his life at the highest possible level. They met with amazing success. Sander died of old age when he was a few months short of his 15th birthday, in early 2006. He still had the cancer: it never went away, but it also never grew significantly, and it did not kill him. He lived with cancer for 7ï¿½ years, half of his life.
After Sander died, Connie wrote an account of that life, in ï¿½Sanderï¿½s Book: The Education of a Dog Owner.ï¿½ It is the story of Sanderï¿½s progression from a dog under a sentence of death to a dog who lived a life that was long, happy, and full of accomplishments. The book includes chapters on cancer treatment, vaccinations, pest control, diet and nutrition, arthritis and chiropractic, veterinarians and veterinary medicine, learning from dogs, and death and dying. It is illustrated with color photos of Sander and is printed in an easy-to-read spiral-bound format. All profits from the sale of Sanderï¿½s Book are donated to dog causes and charities.
