Good News & Our Memorial Day Pics

 This is me and Hootie with our mommy and her good friend, Candace.
Here we are again with Mommy and Candace's husband, Dawson.

Note from the mommy, Cassie:
Good news: Baby Rocket Dog's biopsies came back and they were not tumors OR fatty deposits. Turns out the one was a necrosis (a mass of dead tissue/cells) caused by a *traumatic injury. The other was the result of the necrosis...a giant lymph node coping with it. Because it is STILL draining, the drains have to stay in another week. She is home now, as the drainage isn't as bad as it was. She is still confined to the mud room, but happy to be able to go for walks with me and be home I think. Thank you for all who prayed for her and sent good wishes.

Now, back to me, Baby Rocket Dog!  These photos were taken before my surgery...happier days. The top one was taken by Hootie's favorite man-friend, Dawson and the other was taken by Mommy's buddy, Candace.  

I was glad to get back home, but not very thrilled to be confined to the mudroom.  Mom let me into the main cabin when I first got home and I immediately wanted to rub myself all over the carpets.  Oops. That wasn't a good move, 'cause she said I was still draining.  Draining!!  Sheesh, I'm not a bathtub or a sink.  Anyway, I'm actually being a very good girl. I have an odd smell about me from the fluids still coming out of me (that's what Mom, aka the Nose says). I have 6 new t-shirts that I have to wear all the time and I get to have them changed at least 3 times a day. I HATE that. Oh joy!  Hootie is very happy that I'm home also, but is sad that we can't play togethers.  Sometimes he sits outside the mudroom door and cries for me.  It's a Dutch door, so I can still get to hear what is going on in the rest of the cabin.  Anywhooo, thank you all so much for your love, crossed paws, concern and prayers.  NOW, I need to get visiting all your blogs to see what's going on in blogville.

Baby Rocket Dog

*We figured that the traumatic injury must have been from when she runs into trees when fetching her ball. She really plows into things when on the ball quest, and that is the only thing we could think of that would be a traumatic injury. She has never been hit by a car or anything like that.

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Hey Kids!! How are you doin', Baby? We think of you guys so often!!!

Um, we learned all about drains and t shirts this summer...Mumsie was at work and got a call from the dog walker that Stan for a still undetermined reason went cracker dog on a walk and attacked Scruffy. I of course was minding my own business. Dog walker got them apart, but she will probably need therapy for life...(Lakies are GOOD dogs, unlike some other beasts who live in this house...) Anyhow, Scruffy other than missing some fur from being shaved made a full recovery and the boyz act like it never happened. (And it better never happen again....) Mumsie went back to the scene of the "crime" the next day and found about a zillion yellow jackets and wondered if Stan got stung and took it out on Scruffman. Stan is the most laid back Dale ever and Scruffy can be um really irritating....but this happened like two months ago and all is well. We never posted about it as Mumsie was wigging out for like a month...I have kept her well supplied with smoothies...

Kisses to you both...

XXOOOO Miss Lacie Teacakes, the good one
