Christmas Eve Shadow started to swell again. I called the vet and they upped her dose on the Lasix, we had to let her out every 2-3 hrs and yes in the middle of the night. It did not help her at all in fact she has gone from 33 inches Christmas eve to almost 36 inches, I measure the belly every day. It was terrifying watching her swell and become more uncomfortable. When the vet heard she wasn't responding he suggested she be seen by her oncologist. So last Friday we took her, they did an MRI and blood work, we now know that the tumor has penetrated her heart and is starting to interfere with its function. However her blood work came back perfectly normal, all levels exactly where they should be. This is good because dogs on Lasix normally show elevated levels in a lot of places and at least right now hers are normal. So all of the belly is being caused by the fluid draining off of the tumor. She added a drug to the Lasix that works on a different part of the kidney than the Lasix. She gave me the mildest dose possible, but it isn't doing a thing either. I am supposed to talk to her on Friday, hopefully she will increase it a bit. Shadow was beyond excited to go for a ride in the car and kissed me most of the way there. All of the vets came to see her and all of the girls did too, She sure did love all that attention!! :) The worst part is they shaved her belly, just too darn cold out there for that. I took an old pair of fleecy pants and cut off the leg, I put it on from back end, it kind a fits like a sausage casing but at least the belly is covered & warm. Even though the vet visit wasn't good news at least now I know what is going on with Shadow, the NOT knowing part was killing me. Just loving & cherishing my girl for as long as we have. Jan 23, 2015 is her 1 1/2 yr milestone since she had the window put in, she certainly has tenacity. Hugs & Love to all. Shadow & Mom Lynn

How We Met?

Shadow is a Pitt/Lab mix & was six different places before she came to us, She was just being a very busy puppy. Nobody wanted her, but that has changed everybody that meets her wants her now!! She is the love of my life and follows me everywhere when I am home. She is the most awesome dog I have ever owned!!!

Today's suppose to be Mostly Cloudy & High 57. :::::::::::::::::::::: Mom got woke up at 1:15 Thursday morning by my whining so mom quickly got up, put my jacket on over my PJs and took me out for a two block walk. All I did was pee a lot. Mom noticed later in the morning that I got a little sicky in my crate. Mom had to leave it for dad to clean up as she was too busy getting kitty chores done. I'm doing fine now! ::::::::::::::::::::: Kitty TC likes to sleep between the wall and gas furnace in the back room when he's not on his thermal bed. Well, that place is hard to get to so mom had to move a few things then grab him by the back of his neck to get him so mom could put him in the carrier. Mom also puts the SnuggleSafe in the carrier for TC. ::::::::::::::::::::: Dr. Lisa did the adjustment on TC's spine Thursday morning while he laid on the table with his SnuggleSafe. ((See his new picture in my gallery)) Mom asked her if this would be a weekly thing and she said it takes about 3-4 times to see if it helps. She said he probably will never be able to climb or jump up again tho which means TC will not be outside without full supervision. TC took his last pain pill Wednesday. ::::::::::::::::::::: Mom has to take kitty bro, Rhoamin CC#2921, in this morning to see the vet tech to get his monthly B-12 Complex injection. ::::::::::::::::::::: Good to hear from you Shadow! We continue to keep you in our prayers, too, pretty girl! ::::::::::::::::::::: Don't forget to vote everyday in January for SCOOBY #176110 so he can win his DOTM! ::::::::::::::::::::: Here's your vote #1269 for you. ::::::::::::::::::::: Doggie Licks, KING WILBUR KNIGHT #260132

We Thank You for the thoughts and prayers for him. ::::::::::::::::::::: We had thought we left an update about Anita and her results, but a few have asked about her so here it is!

Today's suppose to be Cloudy/Rain & High 53. :::::::::::::::::::::: For the first time in quite sometime, I was not able to blog after voting for Scooby on Thursday. ::::::::::::::::::::: Kitty TC continued not to be doing well over last weekend. He was in constant pain. Mom called and left an update for Dr. Nancy which she called mom back about 3:00 Monday afternoon, asked mom if she could bring TC in at 3:30pm that Monday which mom did. Dr. Nancy took another xray to check his colon which was still 2/3 full so mom had to leave him there to have an enema done. They called mom about an hour later to pick him up and that he was cleaned out. ::::::::::::::::::::: Mom has been making him stay in the back room tho he insists going outside. Mom tells him no, cuz he's still weak and in pain. Mom ordered a couple self-warming pads from body heat which just came Tuesday. Mom put one out for TC (see pic in my gallery) to lay on since he chooses the floor to lay on & unable to climb and jump up. Mom's had the SnuggleSafe (nukes it in the micro) for him to stay warm, but being in pain and it being hard, it was uncomfortable for TC to want to lay on. He seems to really like the thermal at mom put out for him. He looked so pitiful and didn't like mom touching him much. ::::::::::::::::::::: UPDATE 1/14: TC is still hurting, but loves his new thermal pad. Mom also added the SnuggleSafe for him, too, and he lays his head and chest on it. Mom thinks he is just a teeny bit better, but not much. He eats pretty good and finally went poo. ::::::::::::::::::::: He will be age 15 in a few months. ::::::::::::::::::::: Thankx for the Congratulations to me! It was so sweet of your sweet momma to take time to help you visit a few friends here. Take care and we continue to keep you in our prayers. ::::::::::::::::::::: Don't forget to vote everyday in January for SCOOBY #176110 so he can win his DOTM! ::::::::::::::::::::: Here's your vote #1262 for you. ::::::::::::::::::::: Doggie Licks, KING WILBUR KNIGHT #260132
