Likes:
She loves her family and toys, toys and more toys. mainly stuffed toys, playing ball and stealing shoes! She also loves snuggling her boy RiRi. The most fun is making Coty mad. Taking toilet paper off the roll (that's fun and costly too...)

Pet-Peeves:
Trash day! She hates the trash truck too. Skateboarders, bicycles, motorcycles, all forms of moveable transportation and baths. Riding in the car!!!!

Favorite Toy:
Stuffed animals and chews... anything she can dig out from under the bed, take off the counter or out of the hamper. The coolest stuff comes from the bathroom and kitchen trash!

Favorite Food:
EVERYTHING!! anything she can put in her mouth, she loves, except noodles (they don't have any flavor!). Peanut butter mini paws.

Favorite Walk:
She loves the dog park! Running and playing. Chasing the kids that ride their bikes and skateboards around the dog parks fence.

Best Tricks:
Sitting is her first trick and stealing clothes out of the hamper!

Arrival Story:
We had been watching Izzi just sit in this pet store for a couple months and finally decided that this dog needed to come home with us! We loved her from the moment she jumped up for a scratch. She just fit right in with her brothers once she got over being timid and shy.

Bio:
Izzi is an absolute character. She loves anything and everything (except BATHS!). I can't even begin to give you a list of everything she's chewed. If it's with in her reach, then it's in her mouth. Sometimes I have to be to work early and all of the sudden it's like the Indy 500 in here... at 4am Izzi is racing around the house. It is funny... then with in just a few minutes she is out cold just a snoozing away (preferably next to her cuddle bunny Riley!). We could be out walking and at any moment she will just turn around and jump Riley. You can tell when he is getting irritated because he will attempt to show his teeth and be scarey. She doesn't fall for it one little bit. She is a character with boundless energy and a huge appetite for whatever I'm eating!

The Big "C" ....

Hi all - it has been forever since I have written in my diary. Life, work and us puppers keep mom busy and we don't make it here like we used too. I know many already know this but I think some do not - my puppy life has changed quite a bit over the last month ...

It was back on January 9, 2015, my big brother Coty's 11th woofday when mom noticed I was limping quite a bit while we were out on a walk at the park. she figured maybe I had stepped or landed wrong on my leg. After a couple days, I was still limping and she got down to examine my knee and noticed I had a lump on my right knee. She contacted the vet and asked her if it was possible that maybe my knee was dislocated or something. The vet thought maybe it was a ligament issue and I should be seen. So mom made an appt and took me in - they drew blood and took an x-ray of the knee. Initially the doctor said it was likely a ligament issue and sent me home with some pain meds and an anti-inflammatory. Later that afternoon we got a text from the vet - she wanted to send the x-ray off for further evaluation. Mom was pretty sure the doctor saw something she didn't like and just needed it confirmed. Sure enough, we get the call that night - talk about fast - the radiologist was certain that it was Synovial cell sarcoma. Cancer in my knee joint. We would not be 100% certain without an aspiration being done on the knee and an appointment was made ....

On a good note, blood work was excellent - good kidney, liver and thyroid function.

Mom dropped me off at the vet on January 30, 2015 for a knee aspiration and a chest x-ray. They wanted to check for spreading. I was there till the afternoon - the good news was there was no signs of spreading to the lungs. Some positive news for a change .... the doctor said we would know more once the results came back in a few days. So much for a few days - the results were back the next day and we got that dreaded call. The vet had taken 3 samples of the knee and 2 of them showed positive for synovial cell sarcoma. I had the big C! We expected it but I don't think it became real until the vet called and dropped the bomb on us - needless to say, mom was stunned. The vet was very kind and told mom how much it just sucked and she was right, it sucked. Mom's head was spinning - the lump on my knee was the tumor - she knew she didn't want me to undergo any crazy treatments or chemo or radiation. The course of treatment for this type of cancer is amputation - but I was not a good candidate for it because of my weight. Mom had already decided she was not going to do that to me as I can be a stressful girl and she did not want any added stress on me. So she contacted the vet about other possible ways of treating -

I am being treated with 10 MG of prednisone once a day and 50 mg of tramadol twice a day - I am going to be made as comfy as possible and when my time comes, mom will know and she will do right by me. Right now, though, I am active, well, active for me, I eat well, I take walks and show no signs of letting this get me down - I still walk comfortably on the leg as well. Mom has been taking extra pictures and taking us to the park for walks and out to lunch for some chicken and I am happy as ever.

Life always gives you unexpected curve balls - you can either swing and miss or try and hit a home run. We are trying to hit a home run!

I hope all is well with everyone!

Hugs,
Izzi

 

Thank you Dogster!
