hi evrybody

i am at the hospital as I type this found 3 lumps just below her anus this morning not sure if they were there for a few days or not as always check her for lumps but stupidly enough have not checked that area in detail 

just called her hospital in the UK surgeon cannot obviously make a comment said on the plus side could be that she sat on something and is having an allergic reaction 

there are 3 biggish hard lumps 

this is the best 24/7 hospital where I am they have ultrasound machines and there is another place with X-rays but only open for a couple of hours so not sure if I can make it after here if need be

Lyon is a few of hours from here and they have oncologist there so worse way I’ll head there after here 

needless to say my heart is coming out of my mouth simply because I know how quickly this piece of crap shit awful bastard damn fucking disease (excuse my language) can strike at any time and come back with a vengeance 

pleayers please please please

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 :-)

Hooray!  So glad it is just an infection!  She seems to be prone to them, remembering her foot from earlier?  But such great news!  Things really can change so suddenly, but I am so glad they have not for you and Eurydice!  

Cheeseburgers.

Otis - 106 pound lab/Dane mix, lost his right front leg to osteosarcoma on Febuary 9, 2016.  Four rounds of carboplatin completed in April, 2016.  Lung mets August 25, 2016.  Said goodbye too soon on September 4, 2016.   Lost his adopted sister, Tess, suddenly on October 9, 2016. likely due to hemangiosarcoma.  

Wherever they are, they are together.

SOOOOOOOO relieved for you and Eurydice!!!!

And I didn’t read any word that doesn’t describe cancer inappropriately, each of them described it VERY accurate in my opinion!

I’m wishing Eurydice a swift recovery from the infection heart

Hey Christine, Bettina and Kellye 💛💜💙

Thank you so much for your posts and for thinking of miss cow 💕💕💕🐮

I am overjoyed with the outcome I LOVE infections opposed to dealing with any evolution from the ugly cancer beast 👹💩👺

20 days applying local antibiotics in her butt 😐 and she should be ok and in any case it is NOT life threatening 🎉🎊🎉🎊🎉

Thank you again, girls 👯👯 😍😍😍

Sending you an avalanche of kisses and cuddles to your cuties😘😘😘💕💕💞 🐶🐶🐶🐱🐶🐶

Yeah for cheeseburgers!!

When I saw the topic my heart jumped into my throat. I’m so happy it’s an infection. How the heck does that happen? No more sitting for Eurydice – either standing or lying down.

Now, back to enjoying your travels. Phew!

HUGE sigh of relief!

One advantage to the time difference (you posted about 2:30 am my time) is that I only had to hold my breath from the time I read your topic title until I read your second post!

This has got to be the only place in the world where we have cheeseburgers to celebrate a butt infection big-grinbig-grinbig-grin

Thanks for the huge smile and feel good feeling…..even if it was round about.

  • Heart drops and sick feeling when I saw the topic.
  • Brain whirring in high gear for non-threatening explanation.
  • Big smile over the blue words, inspite of concern.
  • Relief over the infection diagnosis.
  • Head shaking that we are all so positively excited over an infection and butt antibiotics.

Net result, huge smile and warm feelings!  We are a strange crowd!  

Let the travels continue.  Go, Ms. Eurydice, go!

Peace,

Jenifer & Milo

Hi there sugar pies 🍰 you are all so unbelievably wonderfully lovingly marvellous I adore you all 💗💗💗💗 and I DO mean it 

It is so comforting to be able to share this journey with such supportive and fantastic human beings and also, as quite rightfully pointed out, who else would rejoice with a butt infection 😂😂😂 we are indeed a bunch of crazy people and I am so glad for that 😄 one needs a sense of humour when dealing with this 💩👺 disease

The vet gave me an explanation for the infection which is quite surprising in itself and maybe will apply to others in the future.

After surgery her back leg muscles have changed which is normal. 

So, before amp she had muscles around her butt (either side of the tail) that worked a bit like cushions but now she doesn’t really have those muscles anymore so the end of the bones either side of the tail (forget the name) are sort of sticking out (I hope I am making sense here) and as a consequence whenever she presses that area (sitting or lying down) the bones rub under the skin which makes it easy to get infections. 

Best thing to deal with this issue probably is to contact Madame Kardashian 🍑 and get her plastic surgeon’s number so Eurydice can have a cushioned butt again😁

I laughed out loud with Karen’s comment of this being the only place in the world where we celebrate butt infections with cheeseburgers 🔥🍔😂 it is so true! 

THANK you everybody, you are all ADORABLE 💞💞💞💞

Sending each of you an avalanche of kisses and cuddles to your cuties 😘😘😘💗💗💗🐾🐾🐾🐶🐶🐶😸😸😸

Cheeseburgers are pretty much the solution to any problem, at least to a dog.🍔🍔🍔🍔
