We got the results last week – it was a grade 1 tumour that hadn’t spread to her lymph node.  So it was the best we could have hoped for. We did not get clean margins (as expected) and it has a 12% chance of returning.  If that happens, we’ll have to decide what to do then.  Our options would be to do radiation, remove the tumour again or take the whole leg.  We aren’t going to worry about it unless it happens.

We went back this week for a bandage change and a recheck on the skin graft.  It’s looking good.  She thinks it is still all alive.  :)

For the most part Lacey is doing well.  She isn’t going too stir crazy, she doesn’t pout in the cone and when I take it off, she doesn’t lick at her bandages much. The stitches on her flank look fantastic and the ones from her lymph node are also doing OK.  She’ll be in a cone for about another 1.5 weeks and then we’ll get the stitches removed and she’ll be able to go back to life as usual.

That’s pretty much it. Life is feeling rather dull at the moment!

The Halo Pet Foundation is thrilled that Maddie’s Fund has awarded a research grant to the Center for Canine Behavior Studies (CCBS). Halo loves that CCBS is dedicated to understanding the behavior of dogs to deepen the bond between dogs and people, so that more dogs stay with their families.

Halo can’t wait to see the results of CCBS’s inaugural study which hopes to survey more than 10,000 dog owners. In the meantime, we work to better understand dog behavior ourselves by reading the latest posts from the Chief Scientific Officer for CCBS, Dr. Nicholas Dodman, on the Halo blog.

This isn’t the first time that the Halo Pet Foundation and Maddie’s Fund have worked together to help pets. In 2013 both organizations worked with the Humane Society of the United States and the Ad Council to launch the online video series “Meet My Shelter Pet.” In the series, celebrities spoke about their own shelter pets to encourage others to adopt a pet in need. You can watch the videos over at The Shelter Pet Project’s website.
