The strength of the human-animal bond is evident in the relationship that Dr. Ryan Llera has with his senior dog, Charlie, who has been battling lymphoma. Dr. Llera writes about this journey on his own blog, and was kind enough to share some of the story with us here at VetBilling.com. Dr. Llera is a lyrical writer with great sensitivity and empathy. I will never forget the first blog post of his that I ever read: “A Week With Cancer,” also written from the point of view of Charlie. Ever since then I’ve been a fan of Dr. Llera’s, and I’ve enjoyed following his blog and Facebook posts. I was thrilled when he sent me this most recent installment of Charlie’s story.
