I Got A Little Side Tracked...

I took this photo of Kes (apre' swim) last fall. She sure loves her toys.

So, I only finished my sweater parts late last night. Kes was under the weather overnight on Friday - to the extent that I had to take her to the pet Emergency Room at 2:30 Saturday morning. After poking, prodding and a radiogram, it was determined that she has a rather large tumor that is pushing her intestines off to one side. No wonder she was pacing.

She's sleeping, comfortably, next to me as I write this post to you. We have an appointment with our own vet on Tuesday morning, and I'll know more after we go. Until then, I'll make sure Kes is comfortable and pain-free. (Thank Heaven for modern canine meds.)

I'm going to assemble my sweater today so that I can wear it to Handsome's orchestra concert this afternoon. I'm especially looking forward to the Spring-themed classical music to carry me away for a couple of hours. I promise to share photographs of the finished piece tomorrow.

If you think of it, I'd sure appreciate a healing prayer or positive thought for my little Labrador. Thanks.

Hi Donna. Bless Kes' heart. I know it's so difficult to watch one of our babies when they're sick. I hope your vet can give you some positive news about removing the tumor.

Take care and I hope you have a peaceful Sunday. Hugs...Tracy :)

It's so hard to watch our pets age and let's hope your vet can help her. Don't like to see our pets suffer. Hope the concert was good. I played many years in our local community band (clarinet and oboe - finally giving up on the oboe, because I didn't want to stand out as a soloist!) Duh - didn't want to practice is more like it! Kept playing inthe clarinet section until I retired. Gone too much to commit the time needed.

Kes is a gorgeous girl! I'll be thinking of her and you on Tuesday. I hope it will be positive news then. Our doggies are so dear to us, aren't they? I can't bear the thought of them suffering.

Donna,
I'm behind on my 'donna visits, had so much to catch up on. First & foremost, your sweet Kes. Oh my prayers are with you. I lost my best friend Lola in 2000 to a similar tumor. She was a golden, Kes face reminds me so of her. The white around her eyes & nose. They are just the BEST dogs, so loving & loyal. It is so painful to see your pets go through anything like that. Even tho they can't talk you can see everything in their eyes.
It sounds like your making good progress on the wedding gown. I cannot WAIT to see it. I know it will be fit for a princess! Wishing you a happy weekend Donna.

Well Donna...you know how much I love Dogs and I understand what it is like when there is something wrong or hurting with a pet. Your Kes will be in our prayers and please let us know how he is doing after his visit to vet. I wish sometimes that my dogs could talk and tell me when something hurts, It is hard sometimes to read their face or know what a certain bark means.
Give him a big hug from me :)

Get well soon Kes!! These babies just don't know how attached we can get to them. I guess about as attached as they are to us. Sure hope he's feeling much better soon, and that you are doing well also!

I'm sorry Kes is under the weather. It's hard to watch our pets as they can't tell us what's wrong! I hope Kes gets better soon!
