The growth removed from her face was benign!
And the cyst removed from her neck, while large, was not even biopsied it was so obviously nothing to worry about. But the incision is rather nasty. And she can't wear a collar, so while we are waiting for her harness to arrive we have been walking her without a leash and she could not be better behaved. What a girl!
This picture was taken shortly after the surgery last week. Now, unfortunately, the stitches have disappeared and the wound is more open, but she will be fine, vet visit tomorrow.

Think positive thoughts for our girl and for us.

Daisy's new bed just arrived yesterday. I ordered her another bed from Earthdog. They make wonderful stuff for dogs from hemp, we have their beds, collars, harnesses and leashes. One of Daisy's quirks is that she has destroyed bed after bed after bed. Mark has built beds, we have bought expensive, cheap, every different shape and material and she has quickly destroyed all of them. We have no idea why since she clearly loves laying on her beds. I tried a crib mattress which she did not destroy but clearly found uncomfortable -- she was too heavy for the cheap springs. Then we found Earthdog. They make the pillows out of recycled cotton and it washes lumpy but just fine and evens out when they lay on it. The cover is hemp and it washes beautifully. They all love the beds and Daisy has thus far not even gnawed on a corner. She's had her bed for over a year now. So I ordered her another so she would have one in the bedroom as well as the living room. I hoped she would love it enough to sleep on it at night.
She loves it. But she still got in bed with us last night.
So did Marley. He feels the chill and can't wait for us to get under the covers.Those orange and blue pillows you see on the bed are the Earthdog beds that belong to Dylan and Marley. Mark and I like to use them as back pillows when reading in bed, they are supportive and comfy. Here's what's even greater about Earthdog -- they actively support fostering and rescuing dogs. You can see pictures on their site of the many dogs they have adopted and named their designs after, and other dogs who are available for rescuing. I love a do good company that sells good stuff.
I'm excited about getting to know it, hope I can make myself actually read the book.
