So of course for our first trip out it had to be the beach!

I let her tell me how much she wanted to do. She was already standing up and ready to exit the car when we parked. I very slowly and carefully helped her out. And then she had a good sniff to read all the other doggies’ calling cards before gently hopping onto the beach. The sand was soft at the top of the beach so we just stopped and let her get her beach legs first.

A nice man was nearby and came over to see us and asked all “the questions”. It was a good first public interaction – he was very positive and she got to lean against him and get some good scratches. She was already a confirmed leaner now she uses that technique to the max 🙂

So she decided to go down to the water and we took a rest on the way. She got her toes wet but decided to stay at the waters edge. Then we took another rest and a photo shoot and then back to the car we went. I stopped her half way for a rest but she was ‘on a hop’ and so went all the way back with the nice man on the way back saying how well she did! A good 1st trip!

Tomorrow we go back to the oncologist for a repeat of x rays and an abdominal ultrasound, to check that everything still looks good (her chest x-rays in May looked clear). And if she is ready we might start our first chemo treatment of Carboplatin. We decided to do chemo because of the aggressive nature of Lylee’s cancer. It came back from pathology as a nasty one 🙁

I have already started her on many alternative treatments which I will describe in our next post!

Her breathing still seems laboured. This is the 1st day off tramadol. Her breathing has seemed fast all through the recovery so I’m hoping it will slow down now she is healing well and off tramadol and this isn’t anything dire. (worrying mother)

Wish us luck for tomorrow! Huggs and licks. oxoxo

    Where is that beach? It’s so secluded looking and beautiful! What a great spot for her.
    Hope all goes well with the appointment.
    All the best,
