Lizzie is getting a new lease on life. No new cancer appears to be forming, AND her breathing problems have been diagnosed as congestive heart failure. She is on 3 meds which should make a huge difference for her. Many dogs with congestive heart failure live for many years as long as their meds are maintained. Lizzie has lost a little weight too which should help. She's down to 11 pounds. You go, Lizzie girl!
Lizzie recently had surgery to remove mammary tumors. She sailed through the surgery and has been doing great, but her pathology report paints an unhappy picture. The tumors are malignant and spreading. The vets feel the cancer will most likely move to her lungs and will not be conducive to surgery, so SCMR and her foster mom will continue to care for Lizzie and see that she has the happiest life possible until she starts to suffer from the cancer. We are heartbroken because we had such hopes for Lizzie. As you can see from her video, she is happy and looks great! Won't you consider sponsoring Lizzie for the time she has left and be an angel for her? Your donation for Lizzie is tax deductible. Thank you for caring about sweet Lizzie.
Little Lizzie has upgraded to a wienermobile! What an intrepid old girl! Lizzie is a 12 pound, 10+ year old lap dog...good with other dogs, cats and even children. She just needs a new place to hang her hat and call home. Lizzie has lost all her teeth so no expensive dentals are needed for her in the future. She does have a fistula that will need monitoring but appears to give her no trouble for now. She is house trained and that's always a plus! Like many of us, she is getting a little fuzzy seeing due to immature cataracts, but she still gets around just fine. We are working on her coat which is a bit thin possibly due to substandard food. So she's eating better now! And Lizzie does have a heart murmur which may require medication. But she still has a lot of get up and go.
Lizzie's got her motor running in Nashville, TN.
