I should have written before about my dog's cancer but I got away from blogging for a time. On November 2, 2013 Smokie was diagnosed with lymphoma. We are lucky we can afford to get her treated. Six months and $5000 later she was in remission. She was amazing. There were no side effects, no emergencies, no periods of sickness. She was such a trooper. Well, after 6 months treatment free the lymphoma is back. She seemed to be agitated the other night, licking everything, restless, wanting out to eat grass. Next day, another lump in her neck was felt. Got right to the vet and a biopsy revealed that the cancer was back, so we are back on the chemo schedule. As long as she responds well we will do everything we can to get her back into remission.
