Charliebear, that is a sneaky plan … and I like it! I do worry that “emergency” care will equal “extra expensive” but we’ll see what we can do!

Izzy had some adventures today! Here she is …

        *FIRST EVER*  Puppacino!

And to think, she didn’t seem too happy that I was packing her in the truck. (Actually, she’s just camera shy)

I can’t get my photos to upload properly to Photobucket. I tried from Drive but not sure it will work! 🙁 Sorry!

OF COURSE IZZY NEEDS A PUPPACINO!!! Gosh, that’s a “bucket list thing”? Merry Myrtle thought dogs get those all the time! 🙂 🙂

These are such great pictures that capture “Izzy being Izzy”! And your little descriptions of each picture…perfect!

And Izzy wears lavender (or lilac) just as beautifully as she does in pink! Pastels really are her colors 🙂

But you know what comes shining through in each picture? IZZY IS HAPPY!! 🙂 Well, except when she’s giving you a bit of “stink eye” because she doesn’t like that darn camera!

Keep these great pictures coming! 🙂 Believe me, enjoy seeing our girl! And seeing her spoiled more than anyone could imagine…an extra bonus! 🙂

Love and hugs

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

It’s sooo hard to get to this point but I think a bucket list is a terrific idea! 

What about going back to places where she had some milestones happen in her life? For us, it was taking Jerry to the beach that he loved so much. 

And I think spending the day with you at work is one of the best of all. Take lots of photos of her being a good “supervisor” (oh gosh won’t it be so hard to work with such a cutie by your side?!).

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Well, Izzy got to eat a FROSTY PAWS last night and come to work with me today – it was overcast with a forecasted high of 65, so we packed up and hit the road. I left her parked in the shade with the windows down and we visited a few times during the day. In the afternoon, I went out for our rendezvous and she was shivering a bit. I put her sweater on but am worried she was hurting. The good news is that when I came back out around 530, she was curled up and sleeping comfortably.

I re-dressed her foot tonight and her tumor seems so much bigger than it did Monday. That vinblastine dose either hasn’t kicked in or plain old isn’t working. I did start Izzy on Apocaps and worry that it’s somehow contributing to the growth but I know that I’m really just being a typical nervous mom.

No more shaking tonight and while it’s supposed to rain tomorrow, it will be in the 70s so my girl will have to stay home. Might have an adventure this weekend, either to visit my friend and her two boxers or go over to the farm. 

Still can’t get videos to upload to photobucket 🙁 booooo!

Have you already tried posting to YouTube? I usually had trouble trying to get video on Photobucket and then onto here.

Don’t know what to tell you about the Apocaps . If you have nagging “gut” feeling about them, maybe withdraw them a few days and see if it makes a difference. Wish I could direct you to a source for the answer, but don’t know where that would be.

Sounds like the shivering you observed earlier was maybe more about the dampness with the overcast skies and the upcoming rain. We had about the same conditions here today to and it felt kind of “chilly”. Supposed to be a lot of rain tomorrow.

I think Izzy just likes stylin’ her pretty sweaters!

Izzy gets to be with her Mom at work AND gets to eat Frosty Paws! 🙂 That’s a great Bucket item…as long as she gets a Frosty Paws every night as her treat before bedtime!

And a little excursion this week end thst includes a drive thru cheeseburger sounds like a great adventure. I think the number one item on Izzy’s bucket list though, is just being with you! 🙂 🙂

You’re doing a great job of staying fully present with your girl 🙂

Lots of love!!

PS. M&M’s…..let Izzy have a couple of M&M’s a day! Happy Hannah liked the green ones! 🙂 And we want pictures!
