Monty & GME 1


For those of you who don’t know him already, this is Monty, our 12 1/2 year old French Bulldog diagnosed July 16th, 2012 with multifocal or disseminated Granulomatous Meningoencephalomyelitis (GME). We have no illusions for the seriousness of the disease, but being the feisty, stubborn boy full of attitude that he is we hope that we can fight to keep him with us as long as we can, as long as he is willing.

Update 07/02/13: Monty has suffered a relapse as of 6/27/13
Update 11/15/17: Monty is at peace after complications due to probable relapse 11/14/17: RIP 7/26/2005 – 11/15/2017
