Just wanted to give the report from Penny's appointment on Friday. Her CBC and chemistry were good. Her white blood cell count was a little low, but they were not worried, because that is expected with the chemotherapy.

She has maintained her weight, only losing half a pound in one week. We see that as a positive, since she has lost major amounts each time we have weighed her. We are able to get more food in her these days. She is even chewing and swallowing some hard food successfully on her own. We are noticing that she is more focused, and doing things here and there that are her personality. She hasn't done these things in awhile.

We had a good walk with Sally's Mom. There were lots of other dogs that were being crazy, so Penny and puppy Gabby ended it short for safety reasons.

We go back down in a month for another check up. She continues all of the supplements, palladia, and prednisone until then.

Thank you for all of the support and information on various treatments. It is nice getting first handed reports on things that work for others!

Great report for Penny I'm especially glad to see that her weight has basically maintained and that she's eating pretty well.

I'm glad you all were able to get together for a good walk - visiting and enjoying life is restorative. Fingers and toes crossed for Penny!

Penny and I are thankful this Thanksgiving for everyone's support and love. Even though everyone is far away, it feels like that everyone is right next door. Thank you.

Penny's sister Luna thanks you all as well. We hope that you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and have lots of great food!

Penny and Luna wanted me to share something they both enjoy about Turkey to all of their GRF friends!

Turkey Jerky Dog Treat Recipe Ė Left Over Turkey


Hereís a great way to use that left over turkey and share with your favorite pooch. Itís a simple recipe with little effort!

Turkey Jerky Dog Recipe:

1 or 1-1/2 lbs. dark or white COOKED Turkey.

Thinly slice and place on a cookie sheet on the highest rack in the oven.

Bake @ 150 degrees or 170 for electric ovens.

Bake with door slightly open for 2 hrs. Donít burn! If browning, oven is too hot. Turn the oven down or turn it off for 1/2 hour then turn it back on.

Test the jerky after 2 hrs. It should be crispy NOT leathery and NOT moist or tender.

Cool and then store in an airtight container for 2 wks.
