Maggie was spayed on December 19 and she also had some mammary tumors removed. Two of the tumors were cysts and the other was a benign growth. We are grateful for the good news on the tumors! Maggie's diet plan is continuing to show more progress. On Dec. 19, she weighed in at 96 ponds, and on Dec. 30, when sutures were removed from the tumor incisions, she was down to 94.6 pounds. The vet would still like her to lose a little more, but it is hard to get out for our walks in the sub-zero temps.
Maggie loved all of the family that gathered at Grandma's house on Christmas Eve. She especially like Foster Dad's youngest nephew. While he was sitting on the couch, Maggie would just walk up to him and put her head in his lap. This, of course, meant he was to pet her, and every time he stopped petting Maggie, she would nose-nudge his hands and look at him with her big brown eyes that begged for more pets. Maggie also got her fair share of pets in from the rest of the family, too!
Now that Maggie has been spayed and all of her medical needs have been met, she is ready for her forever home. She has a family that has expressed interest in her, and they are waiting to have their home visit done. Stay tuned for a future update of a new chapter to Maggie's life!
