Somethin's Up . . .

Oh . . . they know don't they!
Let's get in the car . . . but I haven't had my breakfast yet.

A rather blurry photo . . . took one click and off we went. Cider is at the vet today getting a lump (on her left leg) removed. They may keep her there until this evening. I'll update more later.


Cider says . . . .Not today!!!
as she rolls around and plays ~ making doggy snow angels.

To make a long story short, our Vet scheduled Cider's surgery with the most Senior Vet at the clinic who had not seen our dog. This Vet in turn thought it would be best if Cider saw a Specialist at an Animal Hospital with an Oncology Department. So . . . surgery was cancelled today and we were given the glossy brochure instead. Cider has a "get-out-of-vet" pass today.

Thanks for all your comments : ) I will fast forward them to our next appointment.

Poor Cider, and poor mom, I just dread when our pets have to do go for any kind of procedure.
I have a sick puppy this morning, and it breaks my heart when he is not all bouncy and being his usually puppy self :(

Hi Karen,
Well, that's disappointing isnt' it, (for you NOT Cider - I'm sure she's deliriously happy LOL) What a silly decision to not have the surgeon look at her earlier than surgery day!


Chrissie said...

Oh Cider!! Wishing all the best for you and your Mum. Ben sends you a big happy Woof!!

Hi Karen,

Poor dear Cider ~ they do know when they are going to take a trip to the vet, don't they.

I love the picture of Cider making snow angels.

Good luck with the surgery.

LOL! They DO know! Animals are so smart! Your doggy looks like a sweetheart. Hope everything turns out okay with her surgery. :)

Nancy said...

Hi Karen...What a face! He looks pretty happy making angels in the snow...dogs just love snow!

I am sending Cider lots of kisses for a speedy recovery.

Have a great day!
Hugs, Nancy

Aww I hope Cider will be ok! I'm sure he enjoyed his get out of the vet pass! Our dog has been released from vet care to doggy hospice ( meaning me to watch her progress and how she's feeling). So sad!

Our prayers are with you and Cider. Another opinion is always good, especially a specialist. Just hang in there.

My best wishes for the both of you!
I hope you will be able to enjoy the weekend, curled up with kisses and warmth.

Hi Karen!

Thought I'd stop by & say HI!

I hope Cider doesn't have any serious problem. I will keep Cider in my puppy prayers. God loves the animals he created so much and I think he is so happy that we would pray for them.

I was so interested in your post about Etsy vs Web selling. I've thought about selling signs on Etsy and wondered if it would be worth trying. Maybe I should give it a whirl.

Have a great weekend! I'm having a giveaway til Sun Mar 8th! Stop by and enter!

Hugs, Sherry
