Tallulah Belle

Is now much happier than this ^^^^
I took this when I'd just brought her home yesterday and she was  dopey. Her eyes were so red she looked like she'd been in a dust storm, or a week long bender! Poor thing is not used to any of this and supposedly she howled a lot when she woke up from the operation. How embarrassing.
This morning she's totally back to her old self and jumped up onto the bed for a cuddle, as usual.

The operation went well. The tumour on her leg was removed with good margins. There was more flesh and less tumour - so this was good. I also found another miniscule lump on her tummy - really really tiny, it could have been anything but it was removed as well. Better safe than sorry. So now, she has rather a lot of stitches.

Everything has been sent off to the lab and we should have the results near the beginning of next week, so all we can do now is wait.
As ever our vet was spectacular.

Also what I really wanted to say here, is that Lloyd and I have been rather overcome with the love and support shown from all of you. It is beyond lovely, and I don't really know what to say that can properly convey our thanks, other than Thank You. You are all bloody brilliant.

    1. I know I hate those things! Our vet actually said that new research shows that they are incredibly stressful for the animal, so they really try not to use them. She's been great with the stitches on her tummy not really licking at them at all. I just took the bandage off her leg and it looks ace.
