Arrival Story: We traveled to P.E.I. to get our adorable puppy from an excellent breeder, Diane Ykelenstam. We flew to Moncton, rented a car and drove to P.E.I. When we returned, Rudy was a real trooper, and didn't mind either the 2 hour drive or the flight! She is such a great traveler we think she will become worldly in her expeditions!
Bio: The mommies were adamant that Rudy not have her tail docked or ears cropped. We are sure glad that she is able to express herself through her tail, and floppy ears.
Rudy has a beautiful personality. She is smart, feisty, and has a great sense of humour. She loves to play with her toys, but playing is even better when Mommy or Mama is included! Rudy has two nans and a poppy who love her very much.
Rudy is a real cuddler. She snuggles in your lap when she is tired, and when she is picked up, often she will snuggle her face right into your neck!
Rudy is very gentle and for the most part loves everyone. However, she is very protective of the house and her environment, and will bark at any perceived intruder! She is a fabulous watchdog!
Mommy forgot to update you, my lovely friends! The day I was supposed to go to the vet, Mommy and Mama got up and looked at the bump, and it was SMALLER! Looks like all that power of the paw WORKED. Mommy took me to the appointment anyway, and both mommies and the nice vet agreed we didn't need to biopsy it this month, but we'll keep an eye on it. Now it looks more like a small pimple! YAY! It was going to be $700 dollars for the procedure, which we would have done if we had to, but at least now we've got some time to save up for it, and maybe we won't even need it at all!
Thank you for all the rosettes and get well wishes. I go back on September 11th to have the vet check it again.
Tomorrow I go to the dogtor to have a little growth removed. It's kinda like a big pimple but it's black and has been there for awhile, so we are going to cut it out and send it for testing. The vet says we should not worry, it doesn't look like a "c" word bump. Anyway, tomorrow I have to go and I sure would love your prayers and blessings for a quick and easy time of it all. Because it's going to be under general anaesthetic, Mommy is extra nervous. She's got Zaidie's momma's bodka dwip going strong, but you know mommas, always worryin' an stuff.
Well, we had a bit of a scare last week when Mama found a lump on my shoulder! Mommy was so freaked out, she didn't even tell you, our dearest dogster friends. All she could think was that dreaded c-word. Anyway, the vet said she was 99% sure it was a fatty lump, but if we weren't comfortable we could get a cell sample. So, Mommy and Mama, being even prudent, decided that we would do that. The nice vet lady took two samples. I was a very good girl, and barely even flinched when she took them with a needle. I got lots of hugs and kisses after. Anyway, today the vet called and the lab results are back. IT IS a fatty lump! NOTHING to worry about! Mommy and Mama are so relieved!!! The vet said to keep an eye on it, but in general we didn't have to worry. OMD, thank you nice vet lady!
in other news, I got groomed for my Christmas photo. I look naked, I think, but Mommy says I look really pretty. Izzy had tons of knots and mats, so her skirt was shaved off last month and she didn't need to go this month. It's only starting to grow back now, BOL!
