Hi friends! It's been a few days since I checked in..
Sadie is doing great!! Walking, trying to get up on the couch, trying to open the cupboard again to steal treats 😉 stitches come out tomorrow morning.
The only unusual thing that's been happening the last couple nights...she will wake up in the middle of the night crying. She doesn't look like she's in any pain, stitches aren't open or oozing. Nerves? Bad dreams? Just wants to be up on the bed with us? We are thinking she wants to be close to us. Any thoughts?
We got her biopsy back & it was confirmed it was OSA - there was a small hope it was valley fever but it's the darn cancer. However, as of right now, there is no evidence of spread big enough to detect on X-rays. Her prognosis is 4-6 months (but she's a tough girl, so we're hoping longer). We plan on doing all her favorite things this summer..camping, trips to the dog beach, lakes, and LOTS of puppchinos from Starbucks 🙂
hope all is well with all of you amazing people!
Love, Sadie & her momma

Hi Lauren and Sadie,
Omd look at that beautiful mug!! She looks so happy, I love seeing puppies smile
It is hard to know the "why" when you don't see what happens beforehand. She may want to be with you, definitely. Is it possible she is having a bit of phantom pain ? If you see it happen, usually it will just come out of nowhere. They can be in the middle of doing something and all of a sudden they can jump and pay lots of attention, sometimes lick at the incision area. It usually lasts very briefly then things go back to the way they were.
I have to just throw this out there... I know the doctors feel obliged to give a time frame, but nobody knows how much time any of us have. Some of these guys do well and end up with a much longer time frame than expected, some don't. I guess my only point is that she is here now, just keep on loving her and don't give the chapter an ending date. She may surprise all of us. The most important thing right now is that she is so happy and acting like her normal self again. You have each other to enjoy, and I have no doubt you will do exactly that. She is a very lucky puppy
