An Early Christmas Gift!

We got the best news that we could last evening - R's tumors were totally benign. Removing them was completely curative! This was the fifth anniversary of a very dark day for us, when we found out that K had osteosarcoma, so we're really glad to have turned around that history.

R is recovering well. Can you believe that they gave him a "Bad Hair Day" bandage?

This black dog is not having a bad hair day.
Now he needs to take it easy for another 10 days or so until the stitches are taken out. Then, he can return to normal life! Yipee!


  1. so happy for all of you to hear this good news

  2. That is the most wonderful news and since R has to rest we'll do the happy dance!

  3. Yipee is right! There could not have been a better Christmas gift in your home than the wonderful news about R ... so happy for all of you.

  14. Your photographs are so beautiful I always wait 'til I have a computer AND spare time to read your blog, which means I get rather behind. (I also sent you an email a while back but I suspect the Internets ate it, so I'll get back to that!) I know it's not quite Christmas in the Rockies yet, but I had to stop by and wish you all - KB, Shyla, R and the Runner - a very merry Christmas.

  15. That kind of news really is the very best present anyone could hope for!
