The sweet gal is about halfway through her round of antibiotics, and hopefully when we bring her in at the end of September, her Lyme and anaplasmosis will have been chased away! At that point, she'll have some bloodwork done to see if she'll be able to withstand surgery, and hopefully, she'll get that baseball-sized tumor removed from her belly!
She's looking so much better than she was a few weeks ago. Her coat is better and a lot of the scars and cuts have healed up. She's still a little itchy, but getting better. Her senior girl hips are a little stiff but she can still chase a squirrel if the occasion comes up.
She's made herself quite at home here. First, she discovered the couch, which she loves. Then, last week, she put her front paws up on the bed. She couldn't quite get up there on her own, but with some assistance, she made it up. She was thrilled and spent a good part of the night up there.
Two nights ago, when the temps dropped, she again put her front paws up there and landed herself right next to me. She didn't move for the rest of the night! She did the same last night, so I think she's found her night-time spot.
Sally Ann is such a sweet, happy dog. She has done just fine with all the other animals in the house. She loves meeting people, and she loves riding in the car. She's a dainty eater (her teeth are not in great shape so that may account for some of that daintiness) and does like treats.
Here's hoping she continues to improve and that she can have the tumor removed and be up for adoption soon. She's a lovely companion!
