Our Good Girl

Jenna started limping a few days after Thanksgiving, she refused to put any weight on one of her hind legs.  Her vet took x-rays and found a tumor on her knee.  He set us up with a canine oncologist in NC, here she is waiting for the doctor to arrive to check her out.  Her biopsy came back as a rare and slow spreading form of bone cancer.   She said there was no evidence it had spread and that she would be much more comfortable without the leg and has a good prognosis.  Her surgery was yesterday and she’s home this morning.  I think she’s taking it much better than I am.  I made her scrambled eggs for breakfast, those chickens better keep cranking them out because I am so very going to spoil her during her recovery.

    I hope our sweet baby is up and around in no time! She’s definitely worth spoiling. Here’s hoping this is of the end of that nasty old cancer!

    Awwww – poor thing! I’ve heard of this before and they always seem to adjust quickly to the three legged life . Give her a big hug from me, Ninja and Mongo. :)

    Aww :( Hope she feels better soon. Dogs are so much more hardy and adaptable when it comes to their legs…yay for spoiling her!

    Poor Jenna. She always looks so thrilled to just be a dog that I’m sure the number of legs she has won’t bother her one bit. I hope she gets well soon though… I’m sure the omelets will help. We’ll be thinking of you! xoxox
