nod has a name...it is jesse and she is 12 yrs old. we traced the tattoo to a clinic in burnaby but they haven't seen her or her family in more than 7 years. we can't find a listing for that name in mission but tomorrow i will try all the vets for that name and jesse's and see if anyone here ever saw her medically. she wants to go home. whenever we go for walks, she wants to keep going til she gets home. when we go in the car she is hopeful that i am taking her home. this dog is looking at me and telling me to find her home, i keep telling her i am working on it for goodness sake.
she was a hag at the vets and ended up muzzled and restrained. and that tumour on her side looks and feels cancerous according to colleen but at this point i am not doing anything until we are sure there is no hope of finding her home. i will start her on melixacam tho, i have held off and just had her on tramadol for pain control. but she needs the NSAID to reduce the inflammation in her hips so i talked to the vet and she thought that we could try it for a couple of days and see how she does and then do the bloodwork if she is staying and we are going to keep her on it for a long period of time.
darla has had no lasting effects from her small seizure/?stroke yesterday (that i forgot to mention) she was back out at the barn today and happy as a lark which is good cuz i have enough worries right now. angelina shaved down lexie today, and rene noticed that endora was having trouble peeing so she is at the vets overnight to see what is up. caro (aka jack) is at the vets too. his foster family have been dealing with colitis with him for the past year, he is now 16 yrs old. he is quite sick today and is staying in on fluids and waiting for bloodwork results. fingers are crossed that he will be ok, his foster family love him alot.
i had a few tears today when i picked up the mail. there was a thick envelope from a 6th grade class in Terrace BC. they had raised almost $400 for our sainted ones but it was their handwritten notes and the pictures they drew that touched me so deeply. everyone had a different favorite...buddy, sissy, spiff and puff, spritely, gideon, percy, packer, pleeze, ellie, and even frodo...that was the happy ending to this days story, that made today's blah go away.
the world is full of wonderful people, but it is even more full of wonderful children and that just makes my heart glad.
