In November I was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer. A month later my dear golden Van Gogh, came down with cancer too. The vet had a rather dismal prognosis for my buddy. Luck for us we did have premium pet insurance which enabled us to take him to an oncologist in the nearby city. The vet there started chemotherapy immediately. Before the second treatment the vet announced that our dear canine was in apparent remission! Funny thing was that between the first and second treatment Van Gogh caught a goose. I could not believe my eyes. "Well," I thought, "perhaps a little goose chasing may help me too." I am not too good at running down geese but I did manage to grab a feather from Van Gogh's goose and put it in my hat. Maybe it will be lucky for me too. Anyway I feel fortunate to have had VPI when I needed it.
