Bubbles had a massive nine-pound tumor removed from her face in late November, and since that time, she has been undergoing various, specialized treatments for the cancer which caused the huge growth.
On Wednesday morning, the rescue agency shared the following update:
Our sweet girl is back from Missouri. She has two more weeks of quarantine and then she can go to her new Family. Quarantine means that she can be around people and animals for limited times each day. No more than 5 minutes each time and up to several hours. As long as she gets to go outside, run and play, she is a happy girl.
Bubbles has bloodwork drawn each week to make sure the radiation has not depressed her immune system. She is always closely monitored for any changes that might have occurred in her physically and mentally. The only thing we have noticed (which was explained to us) is that she has a small lump above her left eye. That is the area where she has another small tumor the size of a grain of sand. The area expands and swells after this type of radiation if it has absorbed the Samarium. We are taking this as a good sign since it is an area we never noticed before.
Bubbles, now free of her tumor, is finally enjoying her life.
Noah's Arks Rescue stated:
We are anxiously awaiting the outcome of the treatment while we are loving having Bubbles back home and in our arms again. This sweet girl has stolen the hearts of everyone. How anyone could have even considered not giving her a chance at having a normal Life is so sad to us. Since the day after we removed her tumor, she has been a different dog. She is running, playing and loving Life. Her surgery was a huge success because it gave her back her freedom and her Life. We do not know if it bought her years or months but we do know it bought her Freedom.
