Arrival Story: Unwanted because of aggresion Hailey went to a foster home. That's when we found her. Pleased with our big backyard, she never wanted to leave and that was just fine with us.
Bio: A aggresive dog that no one wanted is now our happy big brown dog. Though she mainly sleeps all day she has been the best dog I could ask. I'm glad we got her and now so happy the big brown strong dog is becoming old. But she doesn't mind she knows she lived a happy life with us. She is going blind so we'll talk to the vet about that, I just know I will never stop loving her.
So Saturday mom was with me all day long and I was fine. The family comes home and mom goes to take the neighbor's dog for a walk and comes back to me limping. It had to have had happened when mom was gone, but no one knows what I did. So now everyone is like, "She'll get over it." but mom is like, "The last time you said that we found out the blood tumor burst." So she is fixed on going to the vet to check it out.
Lets just pray it's nothing serious again, I don't want anymore surgeries.
So latley over the weekend the weather has been nice here so I've been playing outside. Mom makes sure I'm cooled down, but being a lab she can't just hose me down. Well I'm sure you all know I can't keep up with Oliver and that makes it hard to play. So mom has started holding him back, side arming the kong and giving me a head start. I like it best when I win. =D
As you all probably know that's what happened with the blood tumor in my spleen and then another one formed and they removed my spleen. Well our neighbor had two dogs, one from the wild, she's a wolf-dog, and a deaf cattle dog. Their wolf-dog was 14 and had a tumor burst. She was carried to the car where she died.
Tumors that burst have no real warning signs and most of the time you don't know it's happening. In most cases dogs do not sruvive, and my family knows how lucky it was that I'm still here. If your an older dog please watch for any signs of sickness because that could be a warning of a tumor that burst. And please keep our neighbors in your thoughts, their going through a hard time right now.
