indoor playtime

Got Roxy a couple of new toys today since she doesn’t seem to want to “play” outside much these days. Her stuffing free fox: And this squeaky elephant that I think was starting to annoy her 🙂

We also go our biopsy results back: as feared, but not surprisingly, it came back positive for osteosarcoma. We will be starting chemo as […]

Weekend Update
