This sweet girl gave us a pretty good scare this month. We took both girls to the vet for shots and check ups and was told Soph had a lump that needed to be removed and tested for cancer. Of course I balled a million times and was super scared. She got A LOT of extra loves. So a few days later we scheduled a time to take her in and have the lump removed. It was really hard to do all of this. Both girls have spent more then their share of time in the vet hospital due to the ivermectin poisoning they went through a few years ago, so bringing her back was really hard. Anyway, while she had to be put under for that we also had them clean her teeth and have her spayed so that she wouldn't have to go through all of this again anytime soon. She was able to come home same day, but was definitely not herself for about a week.
We did get a call from the vet a few days later, and the lump was in fact cancerous. Again, more tears and a lot of fear. They did say they got all of it and it's something we just need to be consistent about in getting her in to be checked. And thankfully we caught this fast. Scary stuff. We sure love her.
My name is Betsy (Packham) Christopherson and I am married to a wonderful man named Michael. We have the two sweetest puppies ever named Sophie Sue Princess Beautiful Dancing Bear (yes, that is her official name!) and Ruby Tuesday (aka Little Miss) and together we are Team Christopherson. Michael and I have been married for seven years and together for ten. No kids yet, but we hope to change that someday. In my spare time I enjoy painting furniture, trying new recipes, having dinner parties, decorating, and I am completely obsessed with garage sales. In Michael's spare time you can usually find him watching the history channel, NASCAR or a movie, reading star wars books, playing video games, fixing things, and working in the shop on any project he can get his hands on. In the little spare time that Sophie Sue has you can usually find her sleeping, eating, trying to kiss or cuddle someone or she is loving on her best friend Husky. And in the free time that Little Miss has you could find her chewing on shoes, stealing bones from her sister, or nibbling on our fingers or Sophie's ears. We might not have it all together, but together we have it all.
