From a tragically abandoned dog found wandering on the streets of Baltimore with a massive nine-pound facial tumor to a popularly photographed miracle of canine recovery, Bubbles the Neopolitan Mastiff continues to recover.
Pretty much transforming herself into an adorable play 'machine,' Bubbles' recovery continues to bring smiles to so many of the faces who cried the day she was rescued as the heavy tumor forced the dog to compensate for the weight of the growth by leaning her head the other way.
On Sunday, Noah's Arks Rescue updated Bubbles' progress, and it is with pleasure we get to share her recovery:
"She has gained almost 14 pounds since we removed her 9 lb. tumor. All she wants to do is play and run around. She went to see our Eye Specialist this past week and the stitches around her eye have been removed. At that time, Bubbles could not see anything out of the eye. We are going to give her about a month before we decide if she would be better off having the eye removed or keeping it. It could be wishful thinking but I think she can see a little bit out of the eye. The last few days, I have noticed her rolling the eye as if she was trying to focus."
Bubbles is expected to begin chemotherapy within the next few weeks, but the entire plan has not been confirmed yet by her oncologists. As of the latest report, the particular kind of cancer Bubbles has been diagnosed with is slow growing. At any rate, Bubbles doesn't seem concerned as she continues to concentrate on dog things; running, jumping, playing, eating, and being happy.
And to share some more happy news; Bubbles has a new family who plan to adopt her where she will live in North Carolina. Bubbles, however will continue her treatment in Charleston, S.C. as needed.
