Samantha the Wonder Dog has a sonogram

Samantha the Wonder Dog is getting old - she's about 15. And in excellent health, although slowing down a bit, which is fine by me because so am I.

A few years ago, her vet told us he was mildly concerned about her liver enzymes. "Slightly elevated," he said. "Let's repeat the test in a few months and see what's going on."

Six months later there was no change so the vet recommended keeping an eye on it but not worrying. Again a year later. Again a year later.

But this year, the liver enzymes were higher than they had been. "Could be a tumor," the vet said. "Could be a blockage. The only way to tell is a sonogram."

Wayne dropped her off on Thursday morning and we worried all day. Samantha has been to the vet quite a bit, but this was different. Frantically worried. What if something was wrong? What if she was missing us and didn't understand what was going on? 

When the vet called at 2:00, I was in a state of panic. "She's fine," he reassured me. "No tumor, no blockage. Healthy liver. You can come pick her up."

I raced to the office. Probably shouldn't admit how recklessly I was driving, anticipating that poor Samantha was scared without me. But when they brought her out, she gave me a little nuzzle and then went about sniffing the waiting room and making friends with the other patients as if I had been there all along. 

And here's our well-loved pooch sleeping on her favorite blanket, showing off her shaved tummy :)

Thank you Hannah Williams and MIKE ROCK - Sam really is our best buddy and we love her a ton :) She is a very lovable dog, but not very well behaved. She just ran past me pulling a roll of toilet paper behind her.......

Wayne and Jean - our dogs are our children.  It is sad that they can't live longer because they own our hearts.

Wayne and Jean Marie Zuhl  Of course you were worried for her. The vet (without mom and dad nearby) can be a scary place. Miss Samantha is a "big girl" and she made the most of it!
