Some Spectacular Sheltie News

A couple of months I was afraid that we would be saying good-bye to our Kinsey Marie who is 12 years young. While battling pancreatitis, an ultra sound was performed which showed an enlarged spleen. A week later a second ultra sound was performed showing some sort of growth on her spleen. I turned to a surgeon who recommended removal of the spleen. We did end up saying good-bye.. to her spleen and that awful growth that turned out to benign! She is acting younger and looking more lovely than ever!

Such wonderful news for a lovely girl, Sheila!

  14. I am so glad to hear of the successful surgery for your precious Kinsey. She is beautiful and looks like a twin to my Bea. We sadly lost her at age 13 to a very large lipoma which kept her from walking easily. It was as large as a football. We of course took her to the vet way before it got that large. The vet took a biopsy and it was benign, but we could not stop the rapid growth of this large tumor.


    WOW, I am so very grateful the big man upstairs understood your love for Kinsey Marie!

    Blessing being sent to your way for many more years with your beloved girl at your side.
