I’ve got stitches in my shoulder from where the very nice doctors and students at UC Davis Vet Medical Center took a biopsy from my scapula bone. Jim and Rene took me there when none of the local vets could figure out why I’ve been limping so badly. They made me go to sleep for a while and when I woke up I noticed that someone had shaved my legs. Now I get cold at night, but Rene gives me lots of warm blankets to sleep with.
I don’t understand why every everyone seems so upset. I just hope they can make me feel better. I overheard them say something about bone cancer and potential amputation, whatever that is. I guess they’re going to know more next week.
I really don’t mind all the attention I’m getting, and the yummy new food, and it’s pretty cool of Jim to carry me up and down the sairs. But all I really want is to play ball and go for a run on the beach. Hopefully soon!
