I don’t post too often about our pets but occasionally they take a staring role in what goes on around here.
Holly has been in our care for a little over a year now. We have been ‘fostering’ her for a friend of ours and last Saturday we took her to see a Vet about some lumps that have been growing on her for awhile now. The news wasn’t what we expected. These were NOT fatty tumors according to the veterinarian and one of them was causing him a great deal of concern.
I went ahead and ordered some needle biopsies on the two tumors and will find out the results sometime on Tuesday. For the last two days we have been talking it over about what do you do when your dog gets cancer? We’ve never experienced that before. Unfortunately, after a long talk with the vet, we know that there really isn’t much we can do. I guess we are just hoping the tests come back with an idea of how much time we have and a decision about what to do next.
And really, to lighten up the mood around here, as if to put a middle paw to the whole thing, the poor girl went into heat and is causing quite the stir in the neighborhood. I’m not sure that was the kind of ‘Lucky’ I was talking to her about! Aggh!
We’ll keep the fingers crossed around here until we hear more from the vet…
