Yes! Yes! Yes! We had a glorious homecoming yesterday. Natasha’s improvement in the hospital was so strong that we decided that she could come home yesterday.
And, yes, for those that know her personality well, she did grumble and growl at all of them and everyone was happy to have our Grumble Bunny back.
All of our long-time readers also know that Natasha loves our big-dog neighbors. So you can imagine how grand it was for her as we drove through the ranch and they were all gathered in the meadow beside the road to celebrate her homecoming. (The ranch is about 1,000 acres, so we don’t always see the big dogs).
And, of course, no homecoming is complete with an inspection of the grounds of Sibe Quentin.
Our biggest immediate challenge at the moment is getting her to eat. She only wants very small meals at the moment, so she is being offered those on a regular basis. No interest in her kibble at the moment, though she is eating peanut butter (which helps with her medicines) and Merrick Power Bites. Those are terrific training treats and grain free, so we are happy enough, though we are working to get her back to her regular diet.
We also received the histopathology report yesterday. The mass that was removed was an amazing 1.95 pounds. The best news we have is that this type of mass is most likely to be locally invasive, but less likely to metastasize. Officially, the prognosis is guarded that it may reappear, so we will be testing her liver function and scanning for other masses regularly. But we have reason to be hopeful, so we will take that and celebrate having her back home where she belongs.

We Had A Little Snow
Our winter may have been mild so far, but, like much of the east coast, we had a little snow this week. And so we had a little fun.
We mix a little bit of Evangers “Hunk Of Beef” with the kibble
Ut really helps when they are being Siberian picky
Glad the Queen is home where she can reign and keep order.
Dogs belong with their pack! So glad The Queen is home. We like a food called Evengers when we’re sick. It’s just meat, no other stuff. The queen may enjoy it during her recovery. I found it on Chewy.com and on Amazon. continuing POTP…

This is wonderful news! Welcome home Natasha!
Congrats on doing SO well Queen of the Chez Herd!!!
Do you have a regular link to Amazon? I buy some there. Would be happy to use your link for my shopping.
Did you read about the artificial sweetener in Peanut butter, Xylitol? I think it is, deadly to dogs, just buy good peanut butter.
And what about Satin Balls? They are a complete dog food, and most pups LOVE them?
Thanks for the input. We use only regular peanut butter, but warning others about Xylitol is really important.
If you use the search box for Amazon on the right side of our website, those purchases provide us a commission.
So glad to see her at home where she belongs!
Continued prayers for healing and getting back in good form!
