Arrival Story:
In late summer 2000, my roommate and I were able to move into a fairly large house. We had been volunteering at a local animal shelter and we had fallen in love with Lady. We decided to foster her since she was pregnant and we were going to adopt her if we all meshed together well. We had Lady for about 5 days when we noticed that she had gone into labor. After a few hours, however, we noticed that she was not making much progress. We took her to a vet who had to perform a c-section on her. We knew Lady was the dog for us when we went into the recovery area to check on her. Lady stood up in the cage and started jumping around to get our attention. We thought she was going to bring the entire wall down, lol. Sadly, all of her puppies died. Anyway, we took the surgery bill back to the animal shelter that Lady had come from. They promised they would reimburse us for the surgery but we never got a call back. Heh, and they never got Lady back.

You were an amazing dog. Always full of happiness and strength. I will always miss you. You taught me so much about being a good person. I hope I helped you in life just a fraction as much as you helped me.


Great, more tumors in the house

Just a few months after Bliss passed away from gallbladder cancer, Lady develops a tumor on her breast (I guess that's the proper dog word for it). We're keeping an eye on it now, the vet said he'd probably just leave it be if it's not malignant. Since Lady is somewhere between the age of 10 to 10,000, we're not really jumping at the idea of putting her under for surgery if it's not necessary. He said it's about a 50/50 chance that it is malignant but the tumor is still pretty small so prognosis seems pretty good. Hopefully it is nothing but at least it is good to hear that even if the tumor is cancerous, Lady has a good chance at being okay.

I just have no idea what I'd do without Lady. You just can't ask for a better dog. She's never aggressive or destructive (except for that one time my buddy picked her up without letting her know...but that was funny, he had it coming). She always behaves herself, minds the other dogs. Lady just has this aura of calmness. She's super friendly, loves everyone. She makes me smile all of the time. I just can't lose her. Not yet. She might be godonlyknows how old but she's still very energetic and happy. I just love her so much.


Return of the potty problems

Yep, the infection...or whatever...came back. We got medication again but it didn't even touch the problems this time. My roommate has Lady at the vet's office right now. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. :)
