The face that started it all....
Just got home from picking up Alyssa from Dr. Bookbinder's office. It isn't good news. My baby has bone cancer. It has started in her right rear leg by the knee and is working its way up to her hip. The x-rays were very painfully clear that my girl has been fighting against this evil and it is winning.
Since she is acting like her normal happy self by attacking her toys, eating and begging for cheese I couldn't bear the thought of putting her down today. Bill and Dr. Bookbinder agreed. We will keep her on pain medicine and take it day by day.
Alyssa is my first and she is the one that started our deep love of the breed. I will be forever grateful that she came in to our lives.
