The bad news first; Abby's cancer has spread to her spleen and if it hasn't already spread further, likely will. Her appetite is off, and it looks like her time with us may be shorter than we expected. However, her tail continues to wag, and for now, she continues to enjoy her tennis ball time.
Because of the bad news about Abby, our search for a companion dog for Fi (and for us) had to get kicked into high gear. After discovering that there were no dogs that met out needs (I am mildly allergic to dogs) and Fi's personality at local shelters and rescues, we checked with a local breeder. As luck would have it, she had one 8 week old female Goldendoodle. A black Goldendoodle, actually.
Accepting that we were probably certifiable, we took the leap, and have now added little Daisy to our family. Fi and Abby both did the sniff test when we first got home, and Abby was wagging her tail, and Fi is rather intrigued with her littlest sister.

|It's been a tiring first evening for Daisy!|
-Dr. Liz, on behalf of Fi, Abby, and Daisy, all of whom are totally conked out!
