Behind

Reveling in not being obligated to post after NaBloPoMo I find myself behind in a few things!

First up is some giveaway winners! Winners, you ask? Wait, wasn't there only one giveaway recently? Officially, yes, but the Joy scissor fob I posted about was a hidden giveaway post. Surprise! Everyone that commented on that post was secretly entered to win the fob. The lucky winner this time is Meari of Meari's Musings. Congratulations, Meari!

The other giveaway was for the Lizzie*Kate Snowman '10 chart. The lucky winner of that cute snowman design is Judith of Judith's Needlework. Congratulations, Judith!

I will contact both winners to find out where to mail the prizes!

 
For those of you asking after Sheba, she is scheduled for surgery on Tuesday, the 6th to biopsy her thyroid and to remove it if possible. We will find out about a week later if the growth is just a benign tumor or if it is a malignant cancer. Sheba will be feeling pretty poorly after the surgery and until her thyroid levels go down. The high thyroid levels make her metabolism run very high, that's why she has lost weight and is always panting. She doesn't play ball but she wants to: she brings the ball, you throw it and she runs to get it and lays down to rest. It makes us very sad that she doesn't feel up to playing ~ that isn't my normal Border Collie! Since the thyroid is in the neck she won't be able to wear a collar until she heals. I went to the pet shop this morning and picked up a step-in harness she can wear if she needs to go somewhere. When I got home and tried it on her she looked so sad and confused as if I was strapping her into a torture device! Silly old girl! I will keep you updated as I know more.

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Congrats to the winners. Aw poor puppy. I'm such a dog lover so I will be watching closer for updates on Sheba. I know how hard it is to watch a pet we love not be themselves. I will be thinking about her in this time.

Congrats to your winners.

Heba is gorgeous, I hope all goes well with the surgery and the news is positive. It's hard being a pet owner sometimes, Mr Moe has a return to the vet Monday to see how he is doing, he's been poorly this week.

Sending you lots of (hugs)

I hope Sheba gets on okay, it's so hard to watch a pet being unwell - that's when you wish they could talk and tell us how they feel.

Poor Sheba! I hope things go well for her. It makes me feel so helpless when our kitty is ill. You know they don't feel well but they can't tell you what's going on.
Congrats to both giveaway winners!

Sheba looks like a very happy doggie, and very lucky to have such a caring "mom". Best of luck with the surgery.

Hope Sheba's surgery goes well and that she recovers quickly.
We purchased a 'step-in' harness for our little maltese princess, and she very quickly came to recognise that donning the harness lead to an outing. Once that happened, her fear soon became joy [rapture even], hopefully Sheba will be the same

Lisa Dunn said...

Poor girl. I hate it when my furbabies are sick. :o( I hope her surgery goes well and uneventfully, and I hope it is a benign tumor. Sending lots of cyber hugs to Sheba!

Pumpkin said...

Congrats to the winners!

My thoughts are with you Sharon. I hope Sheba does well with the surgery and the problem is fixed. It's so hard on them because they don't understand. ((((HUGS))))

Mel said...

Awh, hope Sheba is feeling better soon. Thinking of her as today is her surgery day!

Congrats to the winners. :)
