Friends, if you’ve been wondering where I’ve been, its all Mom K’s fault! I don’t mean to complain, but she’s been so intently working on her photography in her free time, that I hardly get any IG time these days! At least she chose to work on this lovely #portrait of yours truly this time. Not bad, mom! 🙌😉 If you’d like to take a peek at what she’s been up to, go say hello @iamkatestrong ! There are only occasional dog photos there, but apparently there are other things that humans like to take pictures of, besides us pups! 😱 #whoknew 🤔 But then hurry back now, you hear? Because I miss you! 😘💕💜💙
Say hello to my rescue friends @harper_petal_diable @a.miracle.named.boone @joeydiable ! 💞

For all of you who know Penny from here or from our shop @mineralogy , we want to give you a little update about her. As some know, we adopted Penny in July of 2017. She was brought up from Alabama underweight with some sad looking teeth. With love, she adjusted quickly and gained the weight she needed. Her well doggie vet check the first week we had her went great and they let us know that she may need some dental work in the future, but to keep brushing.
Fast forward a couple months later, my husband noticed some small bb sized bumps on her chest on both sides. We made an appointment for the next day. After examining her and taking a needle aspirate, they concluded that it was most likely cancer. We scheduled her lumpectomy and biopsy of her tumors.
The week while we waited for the results were heart wrenching. We rescued the sweetest pup we could have ever imagined and were afraid of the pain she may be feeling and the fears we had for her future.
By some miracle, the biopsy came back benign. There was one mass that had cells that could have advanced to cancer (which was the mass they took the aspirate out of). With the good news came a few steps back. Penny's skin wasn't attaching to her tissue from the undermining and amount of margins of tissue around the tumor they needed to remove. A four inch round circle of flesh died back leaving exposed tissue. After a lot of topical wound treatments and twice daily bandage removals, the vet had us come in for sugar bandages. Google it, they're amazing and Penny's wound healed quickly.
Since she doesn't have a lot of skin on her broad doxie chest, they had to schedule the remainder of the surgery for after she healed.
A week before her surgery, Penny broke a molar on a pizzle stick. It was probably a blessing in disguise because they moved up her surgery and decided to do her dental work and x rays while she was under for her lumpectomy. It turns out that poor Penny had 5 teeth that needed to be pulled because they had died below the gum line. Something we would never have known without x rays.
Today, she had those 5 teeth pulled and had her lumpectomy and all of her mammary glands removed. Continued below
