I see your duckdog enjoys sticking his ass on the American flag. Wait till Gooage hears about this.

An update...

The margins were NOT clear. There were a few cells near the outer edge. We met with the surgeon and he said her nose had to go in order to eliminate the cancer.

We scheduled her second surgery for Monday morning a couple of weeks ago and when we brought Cassie in, the doctor said he had thought it about over the weekend. He thought he might be able to take the area underneath the nose without removing it.

Well, okie dokie.

Two weeks of a hundred pound dog wearing a lampshade, crashing about the house, learning how to walk upstairs again followed the surgery . The snow presented an interesting challenge as the collar tended to scoop it up into her face.

I didn't take any pictures yet but the second surgery seemed to improve her looks over the first one. The 'cleft lip' look is gone.

Tuesday morning, she went back to have her stitches removed.

This time, the margins were clear. No cancer cells. It looks like the weekend of reflection was a success for us all. We'll have to keep watching but time will tell.

A little bit of good news in an otherwise tough year for many of us here.

Wow. That is painful and scary. Hope this time all is well and stays well. My best friend just euthanized his 17 yr old Chow mix to stop the suffering.

That IS really good news! Finally!

Our dog went to the vet today as well, as it looked like his ears were filling with little pockets of fluid (happened before, I guess not unheard of with Goldens) and needed surgery. Upon inspection, it appears he just has scar tissue that makes it look like that, but they were a little worse than usual.

He's also been chewing at the top of one paw and won't stop. Between his toes, under his pads, and in his ears, there's more evidence of the same - a food allergy. We've used Eukanuba forever, and the vet wasn't ready to suggest we switch last time since it's a quality food. Today we were told to get some Science Diet Silver something or other for him and see if he clears up. Apparently in some foods, there are either enzymes or what not that don't get broken down completely during digestion, and the dog's autoimmune system attacks it as an allergen. In the recommended food, these are already broken down. It's unusual for this to be an issue with quality dog food, but it's also dependent on the dog somewhat. Whaddya gonna do...
