Thanks all who helped and hoped for Whistler. RIP 2007-2015 | Whistler the Greyhound - El Galgo Estadosunidense
We are saddened to report that Whistler finished his race against cancer, on July 9, 2015. It's taken us, Lisa Mercer and Mark Mercer, a while before we could face updating his site. (Mark is writing this.) We want to thank you all who came here to read about him, offer thoughts, prayers, visualizations, love. Special gratitude forever to those who donated to help us with the costs of treating his cancer. Your gifts definitely helped us extend his life, and extend the quality of his life. The surgery and followup care. Four sessions of chemotherapy with a platinum-based drug. X-Rays, many medications, special harness for support, non-slip treatments in his main parts of the home. Even with the more-affordable veterinary care here in Uruguay, we couldn't have done all of that without your help. Bless you. Let's remember Whistler as the wonderful, loving, fun dog he was.
