Woodle Update and Rikki Tiki Tavi Surgery

Thanks to everyone for the wonderful thoughts for the Super Woodle! I have no idea where he got the strength but by yesterday evening our boy was bright eyed, bushy tailed, and ready to join us on the evening walk with the rest of the pack! He's still got his suitcase handles on so that we can spot him just in case he trips but he was barely leaning and full of fire last night and all day today. Go Woodle go!

So now Miss RTT is requesting some good juju...she is going in for surgery tomorrow to remove a fairly large lump (about the size of a tangerine) behind her elbow along her rib cage. The vet thinks it is a soft tissue sarcoma and it needs to come off before it invades her muscles within the elbow area. As it is she walks with her arm out to the side now-but other than a physical annoyance she seems strong and happy so we are hoping for an easy surgery.

Apparently the shepherds wanted a little extra attention this week!

I'll post an update tomorrow once our girl is safely back home!

I missed the Woodle's post too but it's good to hear he's feeling better.

Good luck and healing for your girl tomorrow. I'm sure she'll pull through with flying colors and feel a lot better without that lump.

Go Woodle!
I too hope RTT has a safe surgery and an easy recovery.
