Why did you do that, Penny?

We were really careful for the last week before Belle's surgery, because the tumor had grown so large we were afraid she might tear the transparent ugly thing open when she ran. So she sported a tee shirt and I added these glasses, they went so well with the purple shirt.
She loved them as you can tell.

Today Belle had her tumor removed, and while Penny was "home alone", she redecorated Belle's sleeping kennel !

She tore the bedding to shreds! What was going through that dogs mind? Ok, I made up some answers I think might have come out of her smiling(toothy grin) she had when I exclaimed,

"Penny, what have you done to Belle's kennel???"

"Mom, I was scared and alone so I went searching for Belle where I smelled her, and I dug and dug, but I couldn't find her!"


"That bitch went for a ride with Dad and I couldn't go, so I trashed her kennel".

"Those cats made an awful mess even though I tryed to stop them."

Belle is home and the D.r removed the large tumor and a small one that had started on her left shoulder. They are sending the mass in for a biopsy. The Dr. suggested this saying it was very 'funky' looking...his words. Apparently there was alot of blood going to it, so he suggested I keep a tee shirt on her tonight and possibly tomorrow...

Poor Belle, she is drugged to the max, and doesn't seem to want to eat, although she drank half a bowl of water down and had a couple of treats.

She's pathetic. I promised her no more t-shirts, and now she has to wear one again. She's such a good girl..

Meanwhile Quarrie, our cat that had surgery last week for swelling and an infected tooth, seems to be doing really great. He eats well and looks like his old self and is fighting more when he is given his 2x daily antibiotic pill.

Belle will have 2 weeks of antibiotics, 3 days of pain pills and then another vet visit to remove the stitches, which I have not even looked at yet...maybe tomorrow I can stand to peek...makes my stomach flip just thinking about it...

Hope these 2 furry critters will heal and that there is no cancer in either one...only time will tell.

Hope Belle is soon back to her old self. (And when you take her to get stitches out, close her crate so Penny had "redecorate" again.

Happy to say that Belles tumor was not malignant! She is healing well, full of energy and hard to keep quiet!
Thanks everyone for your thoughts and prayers.
