So I finally get somewhat caught up on the blog and then up with having a very unusual week with the dogs….
I haven’t updated about Mr B but basically with think the cancer has spread to the other side of his head. He has a few external tumors that have also grown larger. He’s sleeping probably 22 hours a day but still has a great appetite and doesn’t appear to be in pain. When he’s uncomfortable he tries to rub his head, against a pillow, a person, or with his paw. As always, please feel free to like and share Mr B’s Facebook page 🙂
Cricket is truly addicted to balls, we call them ‘spherical objects’ when she’s around to avoid her excitement! We have a few Jolly Pets Teaser Balls in the yard and my oldest son took her out early Tuesday evening to play fetch. I went out with the camera and when she brought the ball to me I noticed blood. Took her in the house and found she had what looked like a significant tear to one of her carpal pads. I cleaned it as best as I could, wrapped it, and we took her to the emergency vet where she ended up with five stitches. Girl is so silly that first time out after she went right back for the ball; even managed to pick up with with the cone of shame!
Finally, earlier this evening Doodle and Teddy were on my bed, watching things out the windows. I was at my computer and heard an odd crunching noise that didn’t sound like a bone or dog toy. Teddy is a notorious chewer (laptop case, several shoes, a Wii remote, etc, etc) but when I walked in the room I found that Doodle had eaten most of a nightlight bulb! Panic again…posted on my Facebook page, in one of my very experienced dog groups, and called the emergency vet. Since there was no bleeding from her mouth and she has been acting normally we’re giving her bread to basically help the transition of the glass. And if her behavior changes or she shows any signs of pain we’re back to the vet….
Needless to say I’m hoping next week will be less dog eventful!
