Skye-dog’s challenge

I have always been a firm believer in sending out good stuff so you can get good stuff back.    Although this is not a blog about my personal life so much as gardens and the natural world, other dog owners will understand how you cannot separate things so easily.

When we got back from our holiday, I found large lumps on Skye’s neck and throat.  After a visit to the vet, the diagnosis of lymphoma was given. 

Skye is going to be 9 years old this June and is very healthy otherwise.  We decided to start her immediately on chemotherapy treatment, which she will undergo for the next six months.  The expectation is that she will go into remission and live for at least another twelve to eighteen months. 

Fingers crossed.

    1. Thank you Carmen! :c)
      She is now, the vet says, in clinical remission after having undergone only one treatment. But its a long road ahead with almost 24 weeks of chemo left.
      I’m giving her rescue remedy before she goes in and bringing her frisbee with her. Hopefully she’ll begin to regard these weekly visits as just another outing…

  1. Emma says she has energy to spare (like I need to tell you that) so she will send some Skye’s way to help her with her to get through her treatment. We will send lots of doggie vibes and love her way
