Her stuffed ducky

Whatever Jackie is eating

Favorite Walk: long as she gets to go walk. That leash is the most exciting thing ever!

Best Tricks:
"Happy Puppy"--she leaps straight up and down repeatedly

Arrival Story:
I've wanted a kerry for a long time. However, we can't afford the puppies, so I'd been hoping to find a rescue. We found Arrow being advertised as needing rehoming by a vetrinary clinic.

Arrow came from a home with kids and cats and is a sweet dog. Unfortunately, to quote her previous owners, "no one loved her". Now she has love.

Arrow is my Piglet. Not only does her food disappear in a hurry, but she thinks everyone elses is up for grabs too. So, we've had to arrange for Arrow's dining to be solo and Arrow to know she's not allowed in the room when anyone else (including Jackie) is eating. For a dog that takes so much joy in food, it's really sad how much trouble she has with it. She's prone to kidney stones, so her protein must be monitored. Also, she's shown she has a multitude of food allergies.

Arrow is very selective on what toys she likes. Her favorite is the Duckworth Family followed by the Talk to Me TreatBall. She HAS to have those! Other than that, she really couldn't care less.

Arrow would excell at being either a working farm dog, or an overgrown lapdog. To us, she's both. Inside, her favorite activity is leaning into your lap with her ducky in her mouth and receiving pets. Outside, she switches gears and immediatly becomes a workaholic. All people, animals, and items must be clustered into tight circles. The perimeter is secured. Vermin are stalked. Items are retreived at a moments notice.

I have good genes!

I was watching the WKC this week. My breeder told Mom she had one of my littermates entered and so I thought it’d be neat.
Well, turns out it was 2! My brothers:

12 Ch Tnt Silver Salute
8 Ch Lemerick's Rocket Man Of Tnt –who won the Award of Merit

It's not best of breed (if I'd been there, maybe?), but it's not too shabby!

Well, good news!!!
I was going in yesterday for my Acupuncture/kineseology treatment and we got the results from the pathologist about my 'thing'.
Turns out it was an odd, but completely benign type of cyst (not the typical lipoma). And all of my outfielding didn't show any signs or spread of the growth or of anything else so that's GREAT!!! I'm HEALTHY!!!
Also, good news, my treatments seem to be working. Jackie and I have been kind of naughty, as has Daddy. He left out a whole pan of enchiladas and spanish rice (think dairy, corn, rice, tomatos....all kinds of things I cannot eat). We ate it. Jackie actually got sicker than me! I had some paint-peeling farts, but everything else was normal. Jackie had just simply eaten too much. Silly dog doesn't ever bring things back up when she overdoes it. Mom always has to give her hairball remedy so it'll hurry thru.
This naughty was good news for everyone! My doctor just went over what I was eating and my supplement plan and gave me an extra few pins to help my surgery heal faster and not hurt or itch. Since I'm her guinea pig for this new regimen she always likes to hear the progress so she can see how well it works to treat something like what I have with no drugs or herbs whatsoever and sometimes throws in a few little things like that to help me along.
It's also a good birthday present for me. Today I'm 5, and I'm a healthy dog!!!

There is possiblymore bad news for me.
When I went for my regular vet visit for my tummy, Mom brought up my bump. You see, since I came to my Mom I had this teeny, tiny bump by my hip. So small you couldn't see it, only feel it thru my fur. It was soooo small, but Mom worries so she'd brought it up to my old vet. She looked at it. Felt it. And then said it was a lipoma (fatty cyst) and not to worry about it all. Just check it once in a while. Because they can get uncomfortable, and so forth.
So Mom kept a good eye on it.
Then when I got my last haircut, Mom noticed you could see a tiny bump. My bump had grown a little. It was still very small, but it wasn't as small.
So Mom thought she'd ask my new vet to get rid of it.
After all, better to have only 1 or 2 stitches, right?
Well, she looked at it. Felt it. And said she thought it was just a normal lipoma, and she'd be happy to get rid of it.
But first she wanted to check something.
So she poked me with a big needle and wiped it on a slide.
"Looks right" she said. "Nice and fatty. But lemme look on the scope".
When she came back she didn't look so happy.
Told Mom there was somethign strange going on. "Big cells" and "Mitotic activity" were brought up. And "Cancer".
But to be sure they were going to send it to a pathology lab when they take it out.
And now we wait for my surgery day. And the results.
