I am SuperBRAVE

BRAVE is my middle name,

(mum: I found a little black raised spot on Sunshade's flank about 3 weeks ago. In the last couple of weeks, it had grown out enough to be a little dangler. So I decided to have my vet, Janice, take it out and send it in for pathology. Since Janice was going to be away for a month, we decided that we would go for a bit of a margin around it in case it comes back to be something evil.)

Look at how much I ate during my surgery!!! I was awake the whole time!!

(mum: What can I say? Sunshade is just our very very good girrrrrl! She trusts and loves her team of veterinarians and technicians (and they love her right back). They can do anything to her, and she would still wag her tail, head rub them to show affection. She has had so many procedures done at the clinic, but she still drags me into the clinic every time and announces her arrival once she's in the clinic! I really can't stress how important it is to get your pup used to being handled, and have a positive association with his/her vet. It will be a lifesaver for your dog especially in his/her older years when problems start to come up. A cooperative dog is able to receive all the help he/she needs.)

I lost some weight,

That's Auntie Jen putting suture on the tissue to mark which end was dorsal/ventral in case it comes back saying we needed to get more margin from a certain area,

(mum: Please everyone, fingers and toes crossed that it's nothing. Sunshade has been such a cheeky, happy girl with good energy for her age!!)

Sunshade sure is stoic. I love that your vet lets you video the procedures. Helps us see and understand what is going on. I hope it is just an old lady bump.
