She's chillin, she's illin.

This is my dog, Sasha:

This is Sasha on drugs:

Any questions?
Well, Miss Sasha made it through the surgery. I dropped her off at 8am as surgery was scheduled for 9:30am. I got a call from the vet at 10am saying she was ready to be picked up. She woke up immediately after the surgery, and in typical Sasha fashion, was trying to claw her way out of the cage. So, the vet felt she would be better recovering at home. This was better for me too! It is so weird to be home when your dog isn't. I caught myself several times looking for her.
When she was brought into the exam room, she seemed like her normal self. Not as groggy as I thought she would be. However, she bumped into a few walls on the way out. Aaah, gotta love those doggie drugs.
The vet cut open the mass and said that it was mainly fibrous tissue, so cancer is unlikely. They are sending it out for a biopsy, just to be safe.
She is still adjusting to the bandage on her foot. Sometimes she walks on it and other times she hops so she doesn't have to step on it. Sasha is weird about her feet. She hates to have them touched. Maybe I'll post some video later.
So, thanks to my heavy metal groomer for noticing the mass. Thanks to Dr. Nicol at Beechwold Vet Hospital for taking care of my girl! I think Sasha would like to thank us for paying the bill!
