A Little Prayer for Bitsy

We all have our ups and downs in life. I know I’m not alone. Yesterday was definitely a down day for all of us at Bunny Hill. Bitsy went to the veterinarian to get her teeth cleaned (she had really yucky breath) and she came home with two 3″ incisions in her legs. The vet found some little bumps called Mast Cell tumors and had to remove them. They are cancerous and they they have to remove a large amount around the tumors. In about 3 days we should have the results of her biopsy back and we’ll know if they got it all. To top it off this poor little dog had 3 teeth pulled.

We knew when we took on a 12 year old dog there would be health problems. We took her in because we love her so much. She is amazing! Today she’s been acting as if she never had surgery. She’s a bit stiff, but walking around, barking when the door bell rings, and eating as normal. I took the photo below, after she went in and ate a plate full of tuna from the cats! It’s a sad look of guilt, not pain. She’s never had tuna before so let’s hope it’s OK for dogs. In the second photo she’s cleaning her feet, probably trying to get off the tuna juice. She came home with one of those awful collars that they make pets wear, but she will only need it if she starts to bite at her incisions.

So, I ask all of you to say a little prayer for her. She needs to have a happy old age.
