Almost immediately we checked her into the vet’s office where it was determined she was suffering from a nasty giardia infection, dehydration, and starvation. It took 48 hours of veterinary care before we got the call to pick her up. She was whole different dog! She positively bounced out to us with the biggest doggie grin ever on her face. We were thrilled!
Over the years she’s had a never ending supply of high octane, loving energy. The entire neighborhood knows her and it’s not uncommon to find people standing outside our fence talking to our dog. Parents ask to bring their kids over to play with her because she’s so happy and gentle. We’ve seen her snuggle with babies and grandparents alike. Running is her favorite thing in the world and she’s very fast. When we want to wear out the kids we tell them to chase the dog around the yard. They always wear out before she does!
“They always wear out before she does!”
About six months ago we noticed a red bump on her bum. It didn’t seem to bother her, but it grew rapidly. We took her to the vet hoping for the best but the tumor has spread well into her colon. We’ve found a canine oncologist, but we’ve been warned that surgery would be difficult and complications are likely. We’re still deciding what to do. But for right now she’s happy and we’re making sure to tell her every day what a very, very good girl she is.
