That's great news indeed!
Cooties in the ear will make me whine! So YAY! Let us know if Chewie is back to new soon!
Comet - 1999 to 2011
She departed us unexpectedly January 23, 2011 at the age of 12 1/2.
She was born with a deformed front leg and a tripawd all of her life.

2 months on and her first trip back to the beach last weekend. She enjoyed it! Afew swims in the sea and plenty of laying on the beach. 2 full days made her tired and one of the days we had to put her in a blanket and carry her back, 4 guys carrying her, she looked like royalty and she loved it. This week we have noticed she is so much more stable and looking like she is beginning to enjoy life again. Its so nice to see her starting to want to go for walks. She has started to eat alot more and we are keeping an eye on her weight. Just had an email from cambridge to say it was a form of cartlidge tumor, not a sarcoma. Not sure what that means, but i will find out and get back to you all.
For owners starting out on this road, like all have said, its a long road to recovery, i thought Chewie would get better quicker, but slowly they get back to being their very own self. Thanks for all of your support!
