    So sorry to hear of Lady's diagnosis. Hopefully it's very slow growing and she will be able to be around for a long time to come. Prayers going out to Lady and crew from us here in DE.

    BTW - how old is Lady?

    I'm sorry to hear about Lady's health problem. I hope she can be happy and comfy for a long time. I know you'll do all you can to help her. It's so sad and upsetting to hear bad news about our beloved pets.

    I was sorry to read this about Lady. I hope it is the slow growing kind.


    I was talking to Amy about fewer people coming to the Pet Talk gatherings and how I thought it was related to Phred's passing but she pointed out that all the dogs are so much older now and have slowed down so an entire day at the park is not so much fun for them anymore. There is not all the running and scuffling that there used to be --- and when I look at my dogs I realized how true that was. When we started these the dogs where all much younger and now they are all up there. Dazzi is 12 and Taggert is 10. And the older they get the more illnesses they seem to get. We will pray for Lady!

    Well, we went back for another visit to the whitecoats today.

    Lady is doing okay for an elderly pup with cancer. She's getting cataracts, which isn't a surprise to me, and we evidently have to cut back a bit on the treats, as she's gaining weight.

    We suffered the indignity of having toenails trimmed as well.


    On a happier note, we met 2 dogs from the Broome County animal shelter who were in for their pre going home checkups! One they both looked like (shapewise) 1/3 scale rotties with absolutely cotton soft fur. One was a gorgeous buckskin tan, the other was black with white chest markings. Lady was very sociable with them, and while they were puppy rambunctious, they were both very well behaved. Lady even let me scritch the ears of the pups, though I did get a rather indignant interrogation when we got home. I hope they do well in their new homes, they were both certainly good deserving dogs.

    Good to hear she is doing pretty well despite the cancer, and survived the indignity of the toenail trim!

    Must have been fun seeing those pups, and knowing they were on their way to new homes!

    The smaller one reminded me briefly of Lady when she was a pup. I wanted to dognap him and take him home.....Patch deserves a puppy.

    But if you got an indignant greeting when you came home with just the scent of the pups on you, can you imagine his reaction to another critter as bouncy and enthusiastic as himself?

    The indignant sniff was from Lady, not Patch.

    Patch evidently couldn't care less.

    I am sorry that I didn't keep up with this thread & did not know about Lady's diagnosis. It does
    sound like she is still being her sweet self & that's good. My last time at the Vet with Smokey, the Vet
    referred to him as an "old man". It caught me by surprise until I realized he is 10yrs old now. I never
    think of age when I think of any of my animals but time catches up with us all I guess.
