Lacey had her third Mast Cell Tumour removed the other week. It was on her back this time so we could do the surgery locally and the recovery was so much easier - no bandage changes every few days, no trips to Calgary for check ups, no bootie every time she went outside. We were able to go for walks again right away too and her anal glands (which get infected every time she has a tumour) seemed to bother her more than the incision itself. With a little more hair growth, the scar should be invisible. We got clean margins so that was a relief!

I'd forgotten how much time a puppy takes up. Thank goodness for Lacey - she keeps him entertained for most of his waking hours. He's had 2 sets of shots so we've started leash walks around the neighbourhood. We are having some trouble with traffic noises but he recovers very quickly so hopefully he'll figure it out. He isn't noise sensitive to anything else that I've discovered.
He's happy to meet people and other dogs. He's come to daycare for a few hours and did great. He was more reserved than I expected but he was pretty happy the whole time. He likes to sit back and watch the action before getting involved.
He is very polite and will patiently sit and wait for cookies and is also very polite with other dogs. I guess growing up with two crabby dogs has some benefits. :)
Anyway, here is a summary of a month's worth of photos. He's changing so fast!
