I thought we were going to stay in bed and snuggle today because it was an overcast morning, but nope, daddy got momma up and told her she had to get ready to leave.

Leave? Where you going momma?

Momma hurried and got dressed and told daddy to hold Coco and then she opened the front door and I hurried after her. I thought we were going to go work in the front garden again but momma opened the car door and put me in and off we went to the vet.

The new shampoo that the vet prescribed for the lesions on my back are not working, in fact now my tail is also loosing hair, so she switched back to the other shampoo that I had been using. Momma said something about my shampoo costing more than the stuff she uses...

The vet also checked out the tumor on my chest and noted that it has grown some as has the tumor on my front leg, but because of my liver problem there really isn't anything that can be done so we continue to keep watching them to make sure I am not in any type of pain or discomfort from them.

She did say that I can go to the groomers without worrying about other dogs catching something from me. Momma wants to have my hair cut short so that the shampoo can get to the areas that need the medication but she cautioned that the groomers has to be told not to cut my hair all the way to the skin because it probably will not grow back.

I don't have to go back to the vet until June and the vet offered to run an extra blood panel on my liver condition then in place of the teeth cleaning since I can't have those done any more. Momma liked that idea and will have it done in June when I spend the day there.

All in all it wasn't really a bad vet visit. They are going to continue to give me extra fluid injections under my skin to help flush out the toxins in my liver, plus when I go back in June the vet is going to put me on some different antibiotics to make sure I do not get an infection from my dirty teeth which she agreed with her co-worker are not really THAT bad.

When we left the vet's office momma bought me a new stuffie that has become my favorite toy of the day - a little blue dog.
