I believe that the circling is from damage to the brain from radiation. I work with individuals with brain injuries, and a lot of Penny's symptoms all match up. Another theory from a family member is that the tumor is pushing up on her brain. I would prefer the first theory, because I can work with her doing rehab to get things better. Of course it will never be 100%, but we can learn to adapt to it. She actually will stand still for petting and food. That is a major improvement. With rehab, things don't happen in days, they happen in small baby steps in months. I am thankfully my family and I have the patience and knowledge for Penny's rehab. A lot of people probably would of stopped a long time ago. (not us crazy devoted dog lover people! )

That is so sad that your sisters dog was experiencing that! I am happy that he got a fast diagnosis and is being treated and doing better. How scary.

Thank you everyone for your kind words and well wishes!

I hope that the circling will go away also, knock on wood.
I am wondering, does the circling have to do with her cancer that you know of?
My sister's old German shepherd was very dizzy, nauseaus, was wobbly, not eating and a bit circling also earlier this week and he was diagnosed with Vestibular disease. He is on Benadryl as treatment and improving now.
Wishing Penny all the best, hugs from the Tennessee gang

Thank you, Lauren! My sister's dog is improving fast, being able to walk without falling over and eating normal again. Yay!

I am glad that you know what care to give to Penny. I am also hoping for just damage from radiation and that with your good care, she will improve more and more and get better. You are a great mom!
Hugs to Penny and Luna

So glad to hear that Penny is doing well on the treatments. That picture is one of the sweetest that I've seen!

I just looked at the picture of Penny and Luna again and then your name "Lucky Penny" and just thought how Penny is so very lucky to have you. Tomorrow I will have to put something festive on Harley and post a photo of him. He's been failing for the past two weeks or so but I took him for a short walk this afternoon and when he saw a neighbor he just bolted ahead all happy and then began barking at the mailman for his attention. He hasn't been his happy Harley self for weeks so I savored the moment.

KathyL, Penny and I are both lucky to have each other. I can not wait to see Harley's picture! I am happy to read that he had a moment of happiness, and that you savored the moment. It is moments like that, that make the fight worth it.

Penny had a good visit at the assisted living facility yesterday. I think her spirits were lifted. She remembered where to go for everyone's rooms. She even used her teeth and ate a hard treat that was given to her! She hasn't eaten hard treats in months. They gave Penny and Luna some treats and doggie toys! She need my help, but opened some of her present. She slept the rest of the day afterwards! They all gave her a good pet and told her she was a wonderful dog.

What a beautiful way for Penny and Luna to spend the day getting lots of pets and love. I'll bet Penny was tired after her visit
