Bio: Sassy is a very sweet and calm dog. She knows many tricks: Sit, Stay, Come, No, Paw, Down, and Crawl. If you say "Treat" she automatically assumes she is getting one. If you say "Wanna go out?" she'll get excited and run to the door. She loves to torture the dogs that are staying here at the kennel, by running around infront of the runs. She doesn't mind when the cats rub up against her. She is very tolerant of other dogs. Sassy had a bladder tumor surgecally removed in '05. If we had not found out about it sooner she could have died.. ---- On July 7, 2006, Sassy had a 5 hour long surgery on her bladder again. She had another tumor and it was in the tubes where the pee comes out. She recovered SO much better this time than last time. She gets chemo every month.
Sassy's a bridge doggy now. I know she's watching over our family and playing with all the other bridge dogs. She was a very happy dog, even until the end. When she saw me this morning I saw her wag her tail and I sat down beside her and pet her for a while.
I know I'm going to miss her so much and April will be a little lost without her for a while.
"Okay, I had this typed and when I pushed submit, Dogster was getting a bath. Mom was a bit frustrated but she's better now, hehe.
For any who don't know, my bladder tumor came back a few months ago and it's been hard for me to pee(and it's been all bloody). I can't hold it in anymore so I pee in the house because I have to go all the time. Lately they've been putting newspaper down(the kittens love it haha).
Today I couldn't pee at all so grandma warned mom that it didn't look too good. At lunch time I threw up my breakfast, which meant the urine was poisoning my body(or something like that, mom can't remember grandma's exact wording). She got me a painkiller, but was thinking of having the vet put me to sleep tonight because it didn't look too good. She took me out to pee again and nothing came out, but after a few seconds the pee came gushing out along with a part of the tumor(which grandma saved to show one of the vets she works with. we know there's still more tumor in there).
She's going to put off that ...thing... until I get worse again.. We're not sure when that'll happen.
Mom took some pictures of me today, they should be up on my page soon."
The Dogster meetup yesterday was so much fun! I met so many pups like Odysseus, Murphy, Jovi, Molly, Mimi, Esperanza, Brutus, Pudgy, Spuds, Richter, and many more! They were all so sweet and adorable. Snowie and April also got a go. We got cool goodie bags with home made treats(half of which I have devoured already). Bol!
When we got there, Brutus was loose, and it took them about 40 minutes to catch him! Poor pup, but we're glad he's safe. :)
April won smallest dog(I think she may have tied with that papillon, but I can't remember) and Snowie won fluffiest! Esperanza and Spuds tied for Wiggliest butt!
Mom chose the giraffe costume for April and got a Dogster tee from Snowie's win.
Snowie and I also entered in the treat catching contest. Snowie caught 4 or 5 and I caught around 7. That was fun! We took A LOT of pictures. Some are up on my page now. April and I slept all the way home! Snowie tried to, but she always has to stay alert in the car for some reason.
Anyway, updates on my health. I'm still peeing blood, but atleast I'm not throwing up. I pee in the house at night, but grandma doesn't care as long as something is coming out. If it ever comes to a time where I can't pee, then there will be a hard decision to make. She isn't sure if they're going to want to do ANOTHER surgery on an old girl like me. Mom's staying positive though! I'm still happy and pretty active for my age. :)
