Emmett update and link love
This is what Emmett normally looks like:
Happy! Vibrant! Will perform for treats!
And this is what he looked like last night:
The good news is that the two bumps were NOT cancerous! Wahooooo!!!! It’s such a humongous relief, and so we continue our countdown to Emmett’s one-year-cancer-free celebration!
Anyway, he’s still a bit groggy and definitely sore today. I’m not even going to show you the picture of his back and how much of his beautiful, brindle fur was shaved. (Does anyone know: Does it grow back in the same pattern?) The challenge today, though, is keeping Lucas from trying to “help” by licking Emmett’s sutures…
So for today’s Link Love, I wanted to pass along some of the more useful canine cancer resources I’ve found over the course of Emmett’s battle. I know from looking at my Google Analytics, a lot of you have arrived on this blog looking for cancer info, so in addition to the resources below, you can always email me!
Fight Dog Cancer – an online forum for people to share stories about their dogs’ battles with cancer.
National Canine Cancer Foundation – their Canine Cancer Library has a ton of useful, straightforward articles.
About.com: Veterinary Medicine, Dog Cancer
Tripawds.com – when we thought Emmett might lose his leg, this site was incredibly helpful.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Today would normally be the day Emmett and I volunteer at the children’s program at the mental health hospital, but instead, we’re going to snuggle up, watch a movie, and just be so, so grateful!
Hug your puppies!
P.S. Don’t forget to create your End BSL postcard!! I laid out the challenge to get 100 between this past Tuesday and next Tuesday… and we’re not even halfway there yet! Full campaign update will come on Tuesday!
