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

On Saturday, Mommy and Daddy noticed I wasn't acting like my normal self and thought maybe I wasn't feeling good. Sunday morning I was acting a little more lively. Last night I was feeling even better and today I am back to my normal self, feisty as ever and wreaking havoc from one end of the house to the other along with my trusty sidekick and sister, Maya. If it ever becomes an Olympic Event, I am a shoe-in for the gold! I can see me on the pedestal now...... (Zap! Chewie comes back to reality with a dreamy look of satisfaction on his muzzle) Now, where was I? Oh yeah, I am feeling really good so you don't have to worry about me at all. The only problem I have is where do I strike next? Inside? Outside? Upstairs? Downstairs? Decisions, decisions.... The day is young and I haven't had time to do too much mischief yet. I am thinking about whether to go down with Daddy in his workshop and bring a bunch of sawdust upstairs on my furry feet so Mommy has something to do (I like to make her feel useful and needed..hehe) or to hang around upstairs and see if Mommy needs help writing the grocery list and cooking. The cooking part is really fun cause I am in charge of floor duty. If she drops it I pick it up! She doesn't get it back cause I usually eat it! Floor Patrol is the best job in the kitchen except for the official taster job. Sometimes I get to do that if its something that isn't bad for puppies! Well since Mommy is still sitting on her butt typing on the laptop, I guess Daddy wins, sawdust tracking it is!!! Lookout carpets, cause here I come! Now if I can just convince Maya (the Mommy's Girl) to come with me, and we can chase the cats through a pile of the stuff and then back up the stairs we can really do a bang up job. Mommy will REALLY feel useful! Gotta go to work, time's a wastin' Puppy Kisses and Tail Wags, Chewie P.S. My sidekick sends her love and Cairn Cuddles.....that, of course, would be Maya!
