Hi everyone
We've been a bit quiet lately.
A few things have happened though. Some good some not so good.
The good stuff first:
Mummy and daddy both started new jobs, and daddy got a new car.
Miss Ellie got to have the very first ride in it too.

Not so good:
Poor old Miss Ellie had a seizure last Monday night. Mum and dad rushed her to the 24 hour animal hospital, which luckily for us is only about 10 minutes away from home.
She was so frightened that mum rode in the back holding on to her, as she couldn't stand up but kept trying to.
The lady vet that they saw was very nice according to mum.
They gave Miss Ellie valium to try and calm her down and then they did lots and lots of tests to see what was wrong with my big sissy, but they ended up keeping her in the hospital overnight to do more tests and to put her on a drip.
While they were looking at her they found a big lump inside near sissy's bottom.
The vet lady didn't like the look of it either so they did a biopsy of it.

The biospy test came back clear, but we are all waiting for the results of the blood tests to find out what 1: caused the seizure and 2: is the lump cancerous?

Old Miss Ellie is back home now, but she is very quiet and mum and dad wouldn't let me play with her for a few days.
Even now she never really wants to play - she just sleeps all the time.
But she is eating well and sleeping well and there have been no more seizures, so we are all happy about that.
We just have to wait for the test results to see what happens next.

Mum has been home with us cause she not been well either, so she took some photos of us. We haven't had any for a long time. Here is a nice shot of me waiting for Miss Ellie to come home from the hospital.

Here we are both of us just resting - no wrestling allowed now.

More of me - aren't I just too cute?

We will keep you all posted on Miss Ellie's progress.

See ya....Bazzy.
