We heard from the vet yesterday- the growth was benign as suspected. To our shock, we learned that it may grow back, as all of it could not be removed due to its location and the bone. No worries- just means Ginger gets to see the vet twice a year or more!!!
Had a dusting of snow yesterday, but the temperature hit 19. 19!!!! What in the world are poor dachsies with moxie to do about taking care of nature? They do their business under the Christmas tree, in our bedroom, wherever they bloody feel like it and we have the "honor" of cleaning it up!!!!! At least with the Hill's prescription diet there is the reduces size to the presents and to their smell, and the puddle issue is easier to eradicate with the Dachsie Bot (which is wearing out- thanks Ginger!!!- I think that I am getting a new one in January for my 7th anniversary: maybe it will be the dachsie gift?)
