RIZZO 5.5 Spring 2015

Rizzo is Chilin

Rizzo is Chillin

We are celebrating this spring with Rizzo turning 15 in May.This last December marked 5.5 years post amputation!

Pretty dang remarkable for a little dog that had a Mast Cell tumor on her hind leg and cells in her abnomen.  The prognosis for Rizzo at the time was quite iffy.  As my friend Ge’Lena would say, Iffy-Smiffy!  That’s Rizzo’s attitude and she has taught our entire family to just move on and live instead of dwell and grind on what she doesn’t have.  She is a inspiration to an entire community that has seen her keep prancing during her Walkies for five and a half years.  I can see it in family’s as they drive by us during our walks…..pointing and waving, smiling and almost cheering this little dog RIZZO.

Rizzo just had her “Senior” checkup and she has developed a heart murmur.  Dr Spellman took X-rays of her heart and lungs and took some blood for some work.  Her lungs do not look all that great. A radiologists will be back with a report early next week on the heart valves.  The Blood results already came back and all her levels look great!

MURMUR-SMURMER!!! Until we hear anything different! There are meds for that!

So that’s the news and updates on the Riz….she is living large and PROOF that the STINKING C DOES NOT ALWAYS WIN!  She has survived!
