Pupdate: Grouchy B is Coming Home

LIVE PUPDATE: Beija G. went in for a CT scan and Excisional Biopsy today, and both went well. She even gets to come home tonight. It's a long story that involved decisions regarding giant margins, muscle and bone, but basically I decided to have her tumor taken out via this Biopsy and then we will deal with the remaining
cancer cells with cancer-fighting herbs and see how that goes.
Over the past three weeks we have seen four different veterinarians, including a surgeon, a dog cardiologist, a normal vet and a holistic vet. During her surgery she also had an oncologist around for a fifth opinion.
All of these appointments, the surgery, and the opportunity to have an informed decision based on tests and the advice of specialists was all thanks to the generous donations of friends, readers, and complete strangers who just happened to want to help a small grouchy dog continue her life with me.
(This is not a post-op photo, btw. It's a couple of years ago.)

I haven't picked her up from the vet yet, but it seems like she can go home tonight, the same day as her surgery. I am over the moon that Beija got through the surgery and is on the road to recovery.

Thank you again. I know I already said it, but thank you again.
