Hi Maddie and family 🌺

So glad to see how ready you all are to tackle this and start a new happy life together 😁

Just a little advice.

The ruffwear harness will be amazing for after the stitches are out but not before because it is too sturdy to wear during the incision's healing period.

Eurydice wore a soft harness provided by her hospital during the healing period.

The material was really soft (it was similar to fleece but softer) and padded and there was zero hard areas, it wrapped around her chest beautifully and was really comfortable for her. 

Also it locked on the top which was great so as not to disturb the incision area.

I wish I could remember the make, I searched all over the web but couldn't find it.

Perhaps you could ask your hospital if they have something similar they could lend you for the initial 10-12 days ???

Or, if not, maybe get her to wear several tshirts one on top of the other to create extra protection.

T-shirts should be loose and 100% cotton if possible. 

And yes, it is Miss Cow on the avatar picture alrighty 💕🐮💕

We're all waiting for pictures of gorgeous Maddie too!

Sending you, yours daughters and Maddie an avalanche of kisses and a tornado of hugs and lots of woof woofs from goofy Eurydice from the sky 😘😘😘😘🐮💫✨🌟🌹

Holistic route April 2017. Lung X-ray 5 May 2017 showed several tennis ball size mets, started cortisone and diuretics. Miss Cow earned her XXL silver wings 12 June 2017, 13 months and 1 week after amputation and 6 1/2 months after lung mets, she was the goofiest dawg ever and is now happily flying from cloud to cloud woof woofing away :-)

Hi Hazel and family 🌺

I'm really sorry to hear your gorgeous Hazel's diagnosis but am glad you are keeping it together and took the wise decision of moving forward with amputation.

As you so well know, no leg, no pain!

And that will be just the start of a wonderfully happy pain free life on three 🐾🐾🐾

I am thinking about you today and sending waves of pawsitive energy your way 🌊🌊🌊💕💕

It is surgery day, yes???

Please let us know how it went when you can, we are all rooting for Hazel, together we'll be fighting this stupid disease 💩🥊 🥊🥊 hard for a looooooooooooooong time !

Sending you a big 🐻 hug and lots of cuddles to your wonderful girl 😘😘🐮💫✨🌟🌹
