Didn't sleep very well Tues night because I was worried what the chest x-rays might show, all that worry was for nothing.....they were CLEAR!smiley4

Her CBC came back with some mild neutropenia but otherwise normal blood counts so they did reduce her carboplatin a lil bit more. She also enjoyed a cicada delicacy before and after her appointment because they were all over the parking lot. She must have stopped three or four times on the way to the SouthPaws entrance to catch and munch on one.

Hey those cicadas are great protein for her, what a treat 😉 Heh heh I don't envy you guys, we don't have them out here in Colorado as far as I know.

Ever seen a tripawd chase a cat????

That checkbox is now checked. Our neighbor has outdoor cats and the one finds it necessary to slip under our fence and into the backyard and on two occasions we've sit him/her up on our deck looking in thru the sliding door. 

Mojo has a high pray drive and is not fond of cats. The cat jumped off the deck and ran behind the shed. Hubby took the garden hose and sprayed it under the deck forcing the cat to run out and then Mojo proceeded to chase it across the backyard and force it back under the small opening under the gate.

I don't mind cats but we have a fence for a reason and definitely don't feel that it should be up on our deck. Hope I didn't offend any cat owners.

Ooooh yikes! Well heck, Mojo's back on cat patrol! 

Our Wyatt Ray chased a cat across a large yard, during his last months. He went from zero to sixty and surprised the heck out of us. Like Mojo, he also had a very strong desire to regulate certain small animals!

Watch her thoroughly tomorrow for any signs of muscle strain, sounds like quite a workout icon_lol

Morning ritual before proceeding to come thru the backyard gate, although sometimes she manages to slid down the hill as she rubs her snout in the grass.

Mojo has mastered the art of completely  tuning you out when you ask jer to come in.😎

I loooove seeing dogs take a roll in the grass and get a good backstretch.   But for Mojo to sneak in some bites of grass inbetween  rolls.priceless..👍

Ahe's looking so good....nice shiny coat.

Thanks for the Mojo smiles today😊

Hugs

Awwwww she's in pure bliss! She's going to enjoy that grass no matter what or who is calling her. Maybe if you had a steak in your hand she would get up 😉

Her coat IS stunning! She looks very healthy and strong. What a joy!

Finally caught her in the act of going up the deck steps. She's gone up them three times before but we've never seen her do it and in fact we've tried to lure her up them with treats and she wouldn't take the bait.

She was out back yesterday evening and before opening the gate I took a peak thru the fence and low and behold she was already on the second step so I stood there as she tackled the remaining seven. Slow, steady and completely in control....first the front leg, then one rear leg and then the other.
