We were all disappointed to hear Caesar's treatment hasn't shown anything too positive as yet...but maybe on his next trip there will be an improvement. We are so grateful to Erik and his family for all they are doing for Caesar and to Barney for showing his support to his friend! Xxx

Caesar, has had his second treatment last Friday. It was again quite a long day for all of us. We set off at 06.00 in the morning and Barney also come along for the trip. Caesar was a brave boy and went in to the treatment centre ok. My wife did mention that his tail was tucked between his legs. Barney was showing some concern as his mate went of and he had such a worried look.

We picked Caesar up around 15.00, he had taken the treatment in his stride. Barney’s response whilst waiting was again filled with concern as he was looking at the doors to see when Caesar would come. Caesar was a little dozy but was quite ok overall. The conversation with the vet was a little less optimistic. He told me he would have expected a response to the treatment, meaning a reduction in the size of the tumour which had not occurred. Whilst I did feel myself that there was no change, I still found the news disappointing and a bit upsetting, I must admit.

The journey back was again slow, but both boys did well and we had a break in between which they both needed. It is so amazing with Caesar, he bounces back so quickly and remains full of life. On Saturday he did sleep a lot and he did seem to feel quite hot. Again, he has been keen to go on his walks and do other activities. The next 10 days are going to be important for him. Lets hope and keep our fingers, legs, arms and toes crossed that there is a response to the treatment.

On a positive note, the vet feels positive about being able to do an operation if this is needed. He feels he can remove the tumour in such a way to allow sufficient tissue to remain. Even if he has to do a more dramatic removal, whilst Caesar may be a messier eater (no change there as he throws his food around already) and drinker he could still have a good quality of life. So it is not al doom and gloom.

Lets all send Caesar, lots of positive thoughts and loving thoughts and lets get him through this so he can enjoy a full life in a forever home :-)

Caesar has had an eventful couple of days. On Friday we left home at 06.00 to go to North Downs Specialist referral centre. As he is a young boy he took it in his stride. We arrived at 09.00 after a good easy drive. We took a picture of him as he was taken in. The wait was long but early afternoon I spoke with the vet, all had gone well and he agrees with me that his tumour had grown :-( When the nurse came with Caesar, she mentioned she was surprised how quick he had recovered from anaesthesia and was hungry for food.

We quickly prepared to go back home. He settled in the car quickly just rested. The journey was quite long the first 50 miles it was traffic jams. We tried to have a break and Caesar was already so much perked up, head raised etc. We arrived back home around 18.45 the 3 hour journey had become a 4-5 hour journey.

On Saturday morning he was ready to go and have his walk and have fun. That is the benefit of him being a young boy. He slept a bit more during the day but honestly, as the nurse told me he be drowsy for the next day or two. Not Caesar, he wanted to come with me to the Kennels but left him home to relax. In two weeks’ time we will need to do the journey again for his second lot of treatment.

Thanks to everyone who has made this possible for him, you are all amazing :-)

I am absolutely overwhelmed with the support Caesar is getting with donations to fund his cancer treatment. To everyone who has donated, you truly are wonderful caring people in helping to give this young boy a chance. Once he has been through his treatment we will be available for adoption - he is a wonderful happy boy. Thank you everyone - Ruth x

I am keeping everything crossed for this boy, it's great news that he can proceed with the treatment, it's so very expensive and as you say a fantastic amount of money has been raised so far, wouldn't it be the best if the majority of the money could be raised to help this wonderful hound. Caesar, I am not religious but I'm praying for you to make a full recovery. Wishing you all the luck in the world xxxxxx

Caesar has had his first consultation last Thursday. The consultant was positive about his chances and that is may not be the aggressive version. Yesterday we got the results of the initial tests and we are so pleased to hear that there is no spread and he has the all clear to start the treatment. It looks like that the whole treatment as it stands now, is about 4K. He will need three treatment session. sofar the funds raised is £1570.- thank you so much for all of you who have donated.

I think the journey was stressful for him as he did not have a proper meal till about 16.00. He had as I call the a very liquid stress poo. We love the boy to bits as he is a good naughty boy and the best result will be that he can be re-homed into his forever home, because he has the all clear. Fingers crossed that this will all come true for him.

An interesting article in Your Dog magazine for July 2021- a dog had a Mast Cell Tumour in his mouth, the owners vets referred him for new, ground-breaking electrochemotherapy at a specialist oncology centre -Oncologist Gerry Polton at North Downs Specialist Referrals in Surrey. The electrochemotherapy could apparently be targetted only at the tumour using a probe then the chemo is delivered directly to the tumour without causing the tongue to lose tissue or function (quoting from the article). The tumour that the dog in the magazine had has completely disappeared following the treatments. Hopefully this might help Caesar too, it's so upsetting when they find retirement and are ill. Using specialist cancer units can access state of the art treatments, one of my deerhound lurchers had an aggressive malignant tumour on a foreleg and we took him to Cambridge Vet School and Davies White near Hitchin for radiotherapy and he survived and recovered well xx

Caesar has been a busy boy the last couple of weeks. The main thing is that so far he is in good shape. I was concerned about his weight as he seemed to be losing it even with increased food, thankfully and with the help of pasta he gained almost 2kg. I also checked the lump and it does not appear to have grown so that is great news to, of course I do not know what is going on internally with this boy.

I think he likes our daughter, as we have some adorable snaps with them both. He learns quick if he wants to, but he also knows an opportunity when he sees one. Give him the chance to be naughty and he will be.

Caesar has enjoyed several outings with us all, 3 dogs and 3 humans. We managed to go to a water park, he has visited a forest and we walk along the canals regularly. We also went to visit friends and he enjoyed that, he was much better with the 2 Italian greyhounds but he remains anxious around other breeds, he is fine with other Greyhounds but other breeds he is not (yet) content with. There is a bit of work to be done with him. I think I can speak for the whole family and that whilst he can be very naughty we do adore him. Every morning he wakes me up at about 6.15 jumping on the bed and wanting a cuddle and some fuss which I happily and sleepily give to him.

Caesar has been both an angel and a devil. In the house he is a sweet naughty boy and I have such sweet images of him in the house with my 4 year old daughter and in the car to. As always she is supervised when she is with the dogs.

Caesar also showed his devil side last week. It surprised and shocked me, as it was out of the blue and out of character. He has been very good around other dogs and even at the vets when there was a little puppy he was curious but gentle. The devil side showed when we walked up a narrow railway bridge. You cannot see who or what is coming. Caesar was first on top and when I saw the other young Rottweiler type dog, I was raining them in for better control. Before I knew it Caesar leaped at the other dog and held his nose. Barney also joined in. Luckily I managed to get them both of no serious injuries, a small cut to the other dogs lip. It just shows when dealing with animals you always must be on your guard.

Some may say, ohh why did they not have a muzzle on. For me it is simple, to prepare them for their live after the kennel you need to trust them at some point especially when they don’t show any aggression or nervousness for a while, as always he is fine with other Greyhounds it is other breeds that can make him unsure, it is an assessed risk. I have since muzzled them again and also split the two foster boys. I walk Caesar on his own now. I have also paid very close attention to his body language. Generally he is excited but neutral. When he sees other dogs he may become just curious but I also noticed that he can occasionally starts to lick his chops and his tail can go between his legs, these are signs of anxiety. I also noticed that a more bouncy/active dog will make him more nervous and respond. In hindsight the narrow bridge a bouncy young dog made him charge. I should not forget that he has cancer, and he may have an off day or be in more pain which will also cause him to respond we simply do not know.

We also took Caesar to Birmingham for an excursion. He did not fully enjoy that experience. He found the train station interesting but the town with all that noise and all those people he was not so keen on. He was very tired when we went to the Kennels and much happier once there. On the way back home both my daughter and Caesar fell asleep and Caesar rested his head on my daughters lap.

It has been a nice time so far. The two foster boys really enjoy their walks so it can be 3 normal walks and a short walk to pick-up Sofia. Caesar is learning about the area and enjoying what he sees. He is such a curious boy. During the walk he is mostly with his head up walking tall being very attentive to all that he sees.

Last weekend was an adventure weekend, we had to go to Northamptonshire, which is an hours drive away. He was very good in the car stood up initially but then settled down. It was his first long drive with us mind you it was my first long drive. He took it in his stride.

As Charlotte (our Greyhound) has been there before she was a nice relaxed companion her Caesar. There are two Italian Greyhounds there and that was stressful for Caesar. He did really well, he is getting better with other breeds. We had no incidents or lunges, I think Caesar was sometimes more scared then the Italian Greyhounds. When we did an evening walk it was interesting how his instinct kicked in. The 2 Italian Greyhounds were of the lead and running around having fun. As you can imagine Caesar wanted to join in and got very excited.

We also have been doing some recall training with Caesar. He is making progress with that, his manners in the house are also improving. I am trying to calm his manic eating down with placing a cup over his food so it is a bit more effort. He has worked out that he can lift the cup and get to the food that way, Barney has not figured this out yet.

We picked-up Barney from the Kennel. I am not sure but Caesar really did not like going into the office. He is happy standing outside, I could only get him in briefly with a treat. He even prefers to stand in the rain then be in the office, hahaha. Today He was happily relaxing in the office lying on a comfortable bed :-)

Yesterday morning Caesar throw-up a couple of times. I am not panicking, it is what sometimes happens, but during the walk he was also a bit less enthusiastic then what he would normally be so I just give him some more cuddles. Today, Barney and Caesar had a fight, Caesar trying to muscle in Barney’s food, I suspect, I had to get in there quick to avoid injuries. Barney has shrugged it off but Caesar is a sensitive soul and was quite offended, his pride has been hurt. This afternoon they are happily lying next to one another as if nothing happened.

Ceasar has had an eventful week. He had 3 walks a day together with Barney, now and then with Charlotte (our old lady Grey). Charlotte is really getting old her mind wants to go for walks but her body will say NOOO towards the end of the walk. As the weather was good we did have frequent walks along the canal, always a nice experience for them. He was not impressed with the ducks or the swans but Barney did find them interesting. I have been surprised how strong this little boy is on the lead. Ceasar also met lots of different breeds and is not always sure about them and can lunge. He came along to pick-up our daughter from school, as short walk away from home. Ceasar may be poorly but he will still need to learn the robes about living in a home so he will receive training. Ceasar and Barney are truly crime mates they both get up to mischief and sometimes team up :-) a little tag team. They enjoyed visiting the Kennels and the run where they were chasing one an other for toys. Ceasar also got a bath which he was less impressed with and he got a grooming session too. Ceasar is in interesting character, he is really not concerned about the others. So he may lay down and place his head on a sleeping Charlotte, jump on the Sofa where Charlotte is lying or just wriggles in a space between barney and a cupboard which can result in growls or barks. He also insists on morning cuddle, Barney sometimes joins in. He is such a great little boy.

We have had Ceasar on foster since Sunday. He has settled in really well. We did not do a lot on Sunday so he could settle and acclimatise to our home. Barney, our other foster, and Caesar seem to hit it off and like to play together. On Monday we did a couple of walks and including one with all 3 of them to the vet for Charlotte (our greyhound) I shared a funny photo of them at the vet. https://www.facebook.com/groups/15539565263/permalink/10157802045250264/?notif_id=1619466384186413&notif_t=page_post_reaction&ref=notif.
Today, he had a canal walk and a walk to the garage. He found the garage very interesting. We also met several dogs and he is getting used to them. He is such a lovely boy, full of beans, wants to walk all the time and so playfull . Today he came to me and curled up against me just makes your heart melt. Live is not always fair is it?

Caesar has been at my house since we collected him from his foster home. Since being at mine, other than being a food monster he has been so good - especially with Tigger, Momma, Tony and more recently Champ. Sadly my house is far too small and my life too hectic for 5 at home so I am appealing desperately for a foster home for this poorly boy. His prognosis at best is approximately 18 months (he has a mast cell tumour on his tongue and we are not going to operate as we feel that making his life more difficult with eating and drinking is not fair on him. If anyone could take this happy boy - even for a short while as I just don't want to leave him at the kennels and my life is too hectic - please give us a call at the kennels. 0121 782 7702 xxx

We are all so very sad for Caesar and for the Greyhound injured by him yesterday. Wishing him a speedy recovery. Thinking of Caesar's foster family, it's been a very traumatic time for them. I know they were very fond of him. Xx

It would be wonderful if someone could offer Caesar a loving home for how ever long he may have. In 2019 we had lovely Bobby who was diagnosed with liver cancer a few weeks after we fostered him. He was only expected to live for a few weeks. However we had twelve months with him. He was an absolute joy, we were very lucky to have had the pleasure of his company and we have no regrets about taking him on. Xxx

Sending lots of love to Caesar tonight. Xxx

It is Caesars 2nd Birthday today - I wish it was a Happy Birthday but sadly I have some sad news.
Caesar arrived at Daybreaks on the 16th March. He went to the vets on the 19th March for his castrate.
Unfortunately whilst he was under anaesthetic for his castrate, the vet found a lump in his mouth under his tongue so an aspirate was sent off for histology.
Caesar went to a foster home following his castrate up until yesterday.
Unfortunately the results have now come back that the lump is a mast cell tumour. Unless the lump is removed, we will not know if this is a high or low grade tumour. To remove the lump would involve removing a portion of his tongue and therefore a wide margin would not be possible without severely affecting him with his eating and drinking.
To make things worse, yesterday Caesar attacked the other greyhound in his foster home resulting in both going to the vets. Caesar only required stapling for a minor wound, sadly the other greyhound required a substantial stitch up.
I collected Caesar from the vets last night and he is currently staying with me. The situation with a poor prognosis and the fact that he has bitten another dog, makes him sadly very unhomeable.
It is a long shot, but if I could find a foster home for him as an only dog to live out the short time he has left, then please contact Daybreaks Kennels. All costs for his care and treatment will be funded by Daybreaks Trust.
If you think you can help, please call Daybreaks on 0121 782 7702 between 10am and 4pm.
