Today we found out that Zoey will need surgery. One to remove 3 large tumors on her stomach and another to spay her. Apparently it is common for female dogs who have never been spayed to expreince this, and in most situations the tummors are not harmful.
I'm not sure yet when we will do the surgeries. Maybe in a week, maybe two.... the doctor said it isn't life and death at this point, but to take care of it as soon as we can. My heart goes out to her and I really feel somewhat like the mother who can't help her hurting child (or in this case will be hurting from the aftermath of scars).
So I just want to ask that God protect her. She has been my companion for 8 years and I truly feel like she is a part of me. And if you too could just whisper a kind thought for her I would be grateful.
