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!!!

Hi Shadow

Last night, when Mommy and Daddy went to the neighbor's house for supper they left me and Maya at home.Well at Mommy's suggestion, they gave me a very important test, which I passed with flying colors! Instead of crating me and leaving Maya loose in the house like they normally do, they left me loose in the house with Maya! I was NOT crated!! Takoda had sent me and Maya some bully sticks because we had never EVER had one. Mommy didn't even know what they were. Well they came in the mail yesterday and after I "helped" Mommy get the mail open she put them up for later.When they left, they said if we were good, (translation: if I WAS GOOD, Maya ALWAYS is) while they were gone, we would get a bully stick when they came home! Mommy was pretty confident, Daddy - not so much. He was afraid they would come home to a situation like they did when they first started leaving my Angel Brother, Anakin alone uncrated. He destroyed 2 cat beds leaving little tiny pieces of foam rubber all over the room! BOL! It must have been a sight!! Well, we met them at the door, so happy they were finally back! We are always thrilled when they come home and let them know it with a frenzied welcome back, but just the thought of those tantalizing bully sticks was almost more than a fella could stand, at least for me it was!! We gave them a welcome like they had never seen before! Then while we both quivered with almost unbearable anticipation (Maya is very food oriented, too, that's why SHE needs to lose a few pounds...just don't tell her I told you that!) anyway, while we were wiggling and twisting like a bug with a bell on it - another dumb human saying - they got them out! The most beautiful sight I had ever seen, BULLY STICKS!! One for each of us. I could hear them in my head saying "here we are, at last, chew on us, enjoy us, we are yours." I am here to tell ya I did as they asked! YUM YUM!! Took a bit longer than a regular chew stick, mind you but I managed to do away with mine last night. I thought Maya had to till a few minutes ago when that little stinker showed up with part of hers and proceeded to eat RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME! Well that was not gonna fly. So what did I do? I took it away from her, she can be feisty sometimes but when it comes to something like that, she's a pushover. I made one mistake tho', I let Daddy see me with it! Oops! Well Maya Papaya, the little princess got her bully stick back and the little prince, me, turned into a frog! Daddy made me go with him out of the room and into the kitchen and he and Mommy gave me a beggin strip so in the long run I came out ahead by taking hers cause she was still eating her treat from last night and I got an EXTRA one today!! hehehe Pretty sneaky and clever, huh? Well I better go since Mommy has a job for me to do helping her in the kitchen. I sure hope it's taste testing again, it's one of my favorites!! PuppyDog Kisses and Tail Wags, Chewie And I am supposed to send this from My sister Cairn Cuddles, Maya

Thank you for the prayers for Scout

dear friends! Mom says we must apologize for the delay in responding back to everyone & also for the c/p blog I'm doing today instead of personal woofs. It's been a stressful time for her not knowing what happened to Scout. Still no word on him but we'll always have a light on in the window for him & will never give up hope that he's okay & will one day surprise us by showing up. I'm still trying to adjust to the new time that I have to get up in the mornings but today really confused me. I was used to seeing dawn's early light when the kids were getting on the bus but today I had to look really hard to see them at the end of the driveway. The big yellow thing that they climb into is noisy so it still makes me very nervous but I still like to watch my kids climb on it. I saw big creatures with humans riding on their backs in the neighbor's field yesterday & got scared. Mom said it was horses & that people ride them to make sure they get enough exercise & for fun. I also saw 3 dogs running around them barking & heard mom grumble that they were bad dogs that hurt kitties so I would not be meeting them because they might hurt me too. Don't worry mom because some day I'll be big enough to take care of protecting our kitties for you...BOL! Mom put my newest pic in my gallery today plus made a new framed one because I keep changing & growing so much each week. I've been a very good girl to housebreak too. I still have an occasional accident but 99% of the time I get outside in plenty of time. I even brought mommy the leash once, but most of the time I paw her leg or stare at her to let her know the time has arrived. Mom says my biggest problem is trying to chew on everything & everyone in sight...BOL! The one thing I don't try to chew is my kitty sis/playmate Trixie. She gives me a warning swat if I'm getting too rowdy for her & hisses if she's not in the mood to play so I'm learning these signs quickly so I don't make her mad at me. I love my kitty sis! She & I have great runs through the house & even play ball together. For some reason she doesn't want to play with my squeaky toys but that's okay as long as we can run...BOL! Well got to run so mom can get our pages cleaned up. Have a mighty Monday! Puppy licks & a vote, Sammie
