Goldielocks Mixed News Today:


Thanks to everyone who has been so understanding and supportive.
Sorry for not sharing this news sooner as have been pre-occupied with caring for my dear Goldielocks.

Good news: test results showed lump was an auricular polyp - it did need to come out as would have completely blocked her ear canal; there is a risk it could grow back but it is NOT cancer so won't start popping up elsewhere.

Not so good news: the fact she was so poorly after the surgery and took so long to pick up suggested a new problem; blood tests and x-rays have shown a damaged enlarged heart which is so enlarged it is pushing her oesophagus up high out of alignment and some fluid starting to accumulate in her lungs; she has started on some medications and will be going for another check-up and another x-ray this week to see if there is any improvement.
I know that, in many people's eyes she might be "just a dog", but to me she is much more, so, if you can please keep her in your positive thoughts and maybe your prayers, I would be most thankful.

Older news: Goldielocks Update:


Thanks very much to everyone who wished her well.


So far so good. Brought Goldielocks home last night and she was soon busy snoring - still very groggy and her feet give way under her when she attempts to stand - but Vet said best place for her was home. She had a number of blood tests taken prior to surgery; lump has been removed and sent away for testing; also a few teeth removed and rest scaled & polished while she was under the anaesthetic. Have come home armed with antibiotics & pain killers to started today plus a plastic Elizabethan collar to use if she attempts to scratch or paw at the ear while healing plus instructions for no food last night, then start on soft food only for next few days. She has been pretty down and out all day today and not enthusiastic about eating or drinking, which has had me worried, but at midnight tonight when she saw me having a late-night cuppa and a scotch finger biscuit she suddenly brightened up and decided she wanted a piece of the biscuit that I had just dunked in my tea - so that must be a positive sign that she is going to be doing better tomorrow. Won't know test results for about a week, but thankful to be sharing her company again now.


Thanks for the hint that a different browser to I.E. might work better for uploading pictures ; just used Firefox this time and these two pictures of Goldielocks seem to have uploaded ok.


Sorry if I have prattled on a bit - I imagine you have all guessed by now that to me she is very special.

Such a pretty dog! All dog owners do understand that she's a member of the family! Even when my son's dog, that was a bad dog to keep, I cried. Hope she recovers completely.

From reading all of the comments posted I don't believe any one here thinks "she might be 'just a dog' as it seems we all love our little furry family members and truly understand just what Goldilocks means to you! My sister had two of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniels in her family and loved them dearly. Your Goldilocks is just precious and I am praying for your family! Love her little hair accessories and necklace ;)

What beautiful color your Goldielocks is. She may be as you put it 'just a dog' but she is yours and that makes her special. Will keep positive thoughts going to heaven for the little girl and you.
