Just a quick progress report on our Boo she is still well and enjoying life she enjoys trips to the park and although gets a bit tierd it is no more than usual. :-D
Her lump has grown a bit bigger but she is still loving her meals and still has a good appetite, Ethan picked some chews up for the girls but obviously Ruby can't manage them so they ended up with some doggie chocolate drops.
Her coat is still lovely and thick and glossy her eyes are bright and she is as loving and gentle as ever so at the moment things are stable and good {hug}

Thankyou Wendy {hug} we are just glad that she is well ,but of course we are under no illusions that she could deteriorate at any time. If the lump gets so big that she can't eat or she is in any pain then the difficult decision will have to be made.
Tom the vet who first saw her said that most oral tumers are cancer, but we are wondering if hers isn't with her keeping so well, but even if it isn't it's still growing and will still cause problems. We are just enjoying the time we have with her anyway she is such a beautiful and loving gentle girl {hug}

I think our Ruby has been a little off it she is still first in line for her dinner and is letting us know if anyone is about.
She seems to have slept more than usual, mind you it was Ethans third birthday yesterday and things were hectic so she was probably worn out like the rest of us.
It might just be me reading to much into it but I think you are more critical when you have a pet with an health issue
I know I don't have to explain it to you dear members because you all love your pets and know what it's like.
At the minute she is snoozing and very comfy on my bed {hug}

Yesterday we took Boo to the vet luckily Rachel was in and so we saw her, she feels the lump has grown since we saw her last. I was saying to her that i thought she may be off it but when the leads came out she was running up and down like something demented, and she jumped into the car boot before any one could help her in.
The funny thing is that up to a few months ago Ruby hated travelling, she would get very jittery and drooll and be up and down and be looking outthe back window.
The peoples faces who were behind us were a picture i mean they probably thought all the bad things that they had heard bandied about rottweilers were true on seeing our droolling beast {rofwl}
She was weighed and she has lost a couple of kilos, basically what she had put on earlier, like we said it wont do her any harm to drop a few pounds she is also eating less biscuits and mostly she is having tinned and fresh meat and also loves scrambled eggs and rice . Her appetite is very good she looks forward to her meals she is having two or three smaller meals throughout the day. If she goes of her food we will know she isn't well .we are using the mouthwash again to keep infection at bay..
Rachel did say that every time she sees her she she marvels at the fact that she is still rolling along nicely, that's my way of explaining what Rachel said. She did also say that Ruby has definitely still got that lovely spark in her eyes and she is happy about that.
We also spoke about when the time comes we will not let her linger like we all agreed it is about Boo's quality of life which at the moment is still good, we asked Rachel if she wold be the the one to help us say goodbye to our beautiful girl she has cared for her and us and we thank and respect her for it.
God this is so bluudy hard to talk about and gets me aLL the time when I don't expect it.

Ruby is still very well on herself at the moment, the swelling seems to have flattened instead of of a sticky out lump.
Over the last week or so she seems to have been sleeping a bit more and sometimeshas been taking herself off to my bedroom and sleeping up there instead of at the bottomoment of thestair
I must admit it is more peaceful up there for her, there is hurricane Ethan

Lovely to hear that she is living a loved and contented life. I'm sure this is partly due to the care that you give her. Do feel for you. {hug} {hug} {hug}

Thankyou Wendy and June {hug}
I don't know what happened with the post there was only half of it there the next part was about Bella
Just before Christmas one morning she couldn't put her foot to the floor, there was no obvious reasons for it and she had gone to bed ok.

She was in a lot of pain bless her so we phoned the vets, there was a cancellation but it was short notice or we could have one for next day.
I said we would get our butts in gear and be down shortly.
She had a good examination and there was no obvious reasons as we our selves thought, anyhow the vet seemed to thinknow it was a very bad flare up of her arthritis.
She was given paracetamol which was a surprise to us as we didn'the know dogs could have it and instructions to bring her back for xrays if she doesn't improve.
She has got a lot better but if she is still limping on tuesday we will take her back and book in with Rachel and go from there.
Anyhow I will let you know what's what
