Abby Update

Thank you all for not telling Abby that there is anything wrong with her!  She had her surgery last Saturday, and is spending lots of time lounging around and eating peanut butter (Mom says there are pills in there, but she gives me some peanut butter the same time Abby gets hers and there aren't any pills in my peanut butter!).  According to the vet, Abby's tumor was another grade 3 mast cell tumor, like last time, so they are going to start chemo in a week or so (which means Abby will have lots of opportunities to visit her fan club at the vet's office!).  However, other than this cancer thing, the vet says Abby is extremely healthy, so I expect she'll be back chasing frisbees with me in no time.

For now, however, Abby is the Queen of the Couch.

She is going on walkies with me, and she's allowed to wander around in the yard, albeit on a leash. (The sweatshirt is to keep the incision site clean - and she looks rather dashing!)

I do get a little stir crazy, so Mom takes me out for a little frisbee action on the sly.

I don't actually like frisbee zoomies as much without Abby around, so I keep my frisbee sessions short. Besides, Abby waits by the door and really works her "woe is me" look...

She's behind me, isn't she?

Yes, there is a lot of snart on the door, and that IS a canvas of Abby on the wall behind her.
Yep, she's totally mastered that 'poor me' look, hasn't she?  Don't worry - she perks right up as soon as we come back inside and Mom breaks out the treats!

Thank you all for the good wishes - I'll keep you posted, and thanks again for not telling Abby about being sick! (And don't worry, she doesn't read the bloggie posts, she just looks at the pictures!)

She will be back and playing frisbee with you in no time at all, Fi!

The pathetic Poodly look is not easy to master, but Abby has it down. Our best wishes go out to her.

Don't worry Abby. You will be back out there catching Frisbee's soon too. We will keep our paws crossed that the chemo takes care of the nasty C.

Bocci said...

Yes, Parental Unit and I send our positive wishes and good vibes for Abby's full recovery. You're a good lookin', fun lovin' duo for sure!

We are sending tons of prayers - just to be on the safe side. You'll be playing Frisbee again before you know it!
Hmm. We don't get peanut butter, but every night, Cam has to take a little pill and she gets cheese so I get cheese, too. Mom says I have something called "placebo cheese". That sounds very important, so after we go outside to potty one more time before bed, I sit by the magic cold box and remind Mom that it's time for my placebo cheese. I wouldn't want to do without it! oh. Yeah. And so Cam gets her cheese 'n' pill combo, too.
Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher
