A little update on my Baby Girl who as you know has lymphoma. Thankfully she has the best kind of lymphoma if you have to have one. She has small cell indolent lymphoma which we have been treating with very large doses of steroids and a chemo therapy drug called chlorambucil.
Thankfully she has taken that treatment with no side effects on how she feels at all. She did lose about 15 pounds of muscle with the high dose of steroids and her coat has gone to crap looking like red fuzz but she has felt just great and that's all that matters.
The treatment over the past few weeks seems to have done exactly what it is supposed to do which is kick her very large lymph nodes way back down to those of a healthy dog and that's what has occurred. With that accomplished we have finally weaned her down to 50 mg. of steroids but only taking that twice a week and her chemo drug chlorambucil she just takes once a week. This will be her dose for the rest of her life and the life expectancy I'm told for this kind of lymphoma is 2 years. I'm not looking at that but instead I kiss and hug my Baby Girl about a 100 times a day and I'm so very grateful to have her for however long that turns out to be.
Goodnight everyone 💕 ... See MoreSee Less
I'm so glad to read this update on her, and her positive progress! I've wondered a lot about how she's doing. My boy, Jackson, had the bad kind and passed two weeks ago, despite chemo and Pred. It has devastated me, and his canine friend, Cleo. Second dog in a row lost to cancer in 2 years. Give your girl hugs for me. Baby Girl's progress makes me feel better. 💗
A Wonderful Update Renee, it’s a Blessing she is doing this Well. None of Us know how Long We have On This Earth, That to Me is Not Our Decision. But Baby Girl is Here For a Reason! And until she fulfills that, Here She Shall Stay, By Your Side❤️
God bless you Baby Girl.
Thanks for Baby Girl’s update....have been thinking about her......that’s all you can do is love her up...every day ❤️🐾🙏
Virtual hugs & kisses from KS, Baby Girl ♡♡♡
Renee... I know how hard this is on you because you helped me with Alley Mae exactly 1 year ago. Stay positive. Abigail Hope & I are send prayer & positive vibes your way
I am so happy someone's dog will have more time with lymphoma- I was not so lucky. I miss my Kate everyday.... I will keep good thoughts for you and Baby girl!
So good to hear she's handeling the meds. And treatments, u are such a love bug, so sorry u have this dirty cancer, but prayers you live longer then they beleive. Love you Baby Girl
So sad, but at least you will have her longer, or until she cannot tolerate the treatment or that is stops working. We pray for the best outcome, and that is for you to have her at lest 2 more years. We all know it will be so hard, when the time comes.. take comfort in the treatment and the best outcome possible.
Bless you baby girl! Praying you continue to respond to treatment and feel much better. Love that face! 😍
Baby Girl, I am so happy you are doing well on all those medicines and pray that you continue to do so. Your Momma and the Drs. are taking real good care of you.I will continue to keep you in my prayers. You are such a sweetie. Another day has ended and it is time to say Goodnight everybody.Hope you had a good day and that tomorrow will be even better. Sleep tight and pleasant dreams from Portland, Oregon.🙏🙏😴😴😴.
Good news. I hope she continues to feel good.
Aw this is lovely and the best kind of news 😍😍😍😍

Good news! Your baby girl is so sweet.
Sweet dreams baby girl ♥️😘🐾
Yay Baby Girl. Its the Outcome we want, we know the ride is always Hell. 11 yrs ago I was over radiated during Cervical Cancer. I've lost my intestines and they threaten my legs at least once a year. I don't care, I just tell em you better put those boingdy boingdy thing on me cause when I wake up I'm outta here. I'm 10 years Cancer Free and the Happiest and Healthiest I've been in my life. The Gift of Life is worth the cost of "Looking Good or Not". Just keep Strutting Your Stuff Baby Girl and Smile. XOXO
Kisses and hugs are just what she needs!😋😋😋
And that's all that matters? You know what kind of bad hair day red fuzz can cause, huh? Hahaha. Still looking good! Yay!
God bless you Baby Girl.
Kiss and hug her for me, too!

Pinkerton was taken into Dallas Veterinary Surgical Center to get a consult on what we will do to help her.
I spoke with the surgeon this afternoon and he confirmed that her pelvis is fractured in multiple places, some of them are not so serious but one of them is. The problem is the length of time that has gone by since being hit by a car will cause an issue. The scar tissue begins to form, things tighten up and it’s not as easy if it was a fresh injury. If they cannot make it better with surgery then there is no point in doing it and instead letting it heal on it’s own leaving her with a probable limp but she could have that with surgery too.
Here’s the plan, she will spend the night in the hospital and be prepped for surgery tomorrow but before doing anything they are going to manipulate and force movement to get a better understanding of how it’s moving while she’s under anesthesia. By doing this they can have a better idea of whether to proceed with surgery or leave her be.
Of course none of this would be the case if she had been given the medical care she needed this could have been easily corrected with surgery but of course that didn’t happen and instead a couple of weeks went by and this is how her body has handled it.
We will know tomorrow and I will update you as soon as a decision is made, for now she’s on very good pain meds and being kept very comfortable. ... See MoreSee Less
💔 🙏 I Will be lifting Pinkerton up in prayer...that Our Father heal her and that he help guide those whom wish to help her. Bless her heart...let us all pray for there is power in prayer. 🙏♥️
I have a little Lhasa boy who was in the same situation. By the time I got him from the "rescue", his pelvis had formed too much scar tissue for surgery to be effective. He was severely emaciated when I picked him up and, as he gained weight, his muscles stretched the scar tissue out and further separated the breaks in his pelvis. It's a year later now and he's doing okay. Runs and jumps almost like a normal puppy. He's on glucosamine supplements for life, and we'll have to see how this injury will effect him later in life.
Poor little girl. Hope it can be repaired. 🙏
Such a little dumpling.
Thank you for taking care of her. Love her and her sweet face with spectacular ears
What a lovey girl. Sad for her but she will get a mom and dad to pamper her and live her to death.
I can't imagine the pain she must have been in the last couple of weeks. Best of luck tomorrow, little girl! 💜
I hope she can have the surgery. Poor baby no telling how much she has suffered. 😢
Sweetest little girl-I hope all can be fixed for you! Sending love and pawsitives!! ❤️
Love, thoughts and prayers for little Pinkerton. 💖
There are no words for some people.

We rescued all of the calendar dogs way back in July and all of them have been adopted with the exception of little January.
You might remember she came to us with her little tiny baby that was maybe 3 or 4 weeks old still nursing on her while all of them were found wandering the property of their owner who has now been prosecuted for animal cruelty. January had a long road of recovery due to her taking care of her baby as well as the fact that she came to us heart worm positive. She is healthy now and was finally ready to leave Jenn's home after months and months of care.
She will now live with our former adopters LeeAnn and Aaron Robb in Little Elm, TX. They have our former foster Felicia for January to play with. Robb works from home most days so January will enjoy that since she is used to Jenn being home with her everyday. She will also have two children to grow up with.
We understand her new name will be Jani and she will be adored forever. That's it for the calendar dogs!!
Happy life little girl 💞 ... See MoreSee Less
Good life Jani! Thanks LSDR/DRR for doing it right! Special thanks to Jenn for letting another well adjusted dog leave the nest, so to speak!

You know what I want for Christmas?
I want Menudo to find her very own home for Christmas and I would love it if the village would please help me with that.
Menudo has been through hell and back living in a mill and rescued at an auction. She's been with us for 8 months and we finally have her healthy and ready for adoption. She came in with the Mexican food group way back in April and all of them have been adopted except for her.
She came to us with a severe uterine infection and had to be rushed into emergency surgery. She leaked urine constantly and it took thousands upon thousands of dollars to not only diagnose the issue but then to have the surgery at Texas A & M to correct the seating of her ureter. We are thrilled to say that she is finally healthy and waiting for someone to love her.
She's an two years old and an absolute nut and loves to play with other dogs and loves to be held and is good with cats too. She’s a far cry from the girl who came to us and would only sit in the corner and face the wall.
She's a big girl and is too big to fly so her forever family will have to come to Texas to get her. She's currently staying with foster mom Mary and her house of red bears and Mary enjoys her so much and says she's just a happy quirky little girl.
Can you please, pretty please hit the share button for Menudo so we can give her and me a very nice Christmas gift. We know her family is out there and we know the village can make that happen with a very large share.
Applications can be found online at dogranchrescue.com ... See MoreSee Less

She gone through so much...let this be her reward for having endured so much!! We ask you Father in Jesus's PRECIOUS Name...Amen ♥️🙏🎄
Wishing you get your forever home.
Merry Christmas to you Menudo. I hope you will have your furever home by Christmas. You have been thru so much and you so deserve to have your own family. I hope the applications start flying in.🎄🎄🐾🎄🎄.

Santa's Little Helper arrived at the sanctuary. She's a very tiny little girl, she's timid and worried and will growl at you a little bit but it's just because she's afraid. I’m so happy to have her safe from the valley and want to thank everyone who leapt into action to get her here.
She's staying in isolation as all 3 of these dogs Auggie Doggie, Scooby Doo and her all show signs of an upper respiratory infection. This is the design of the isolation room and we are beyond thrilled to have a place where they can rest and get well without spreading their illness. The volunteers go in there and spend time with them individually so they still get outside time in the isolation yard as well as human time to give them hugs. ... See MoreSee Less
That's a magic paw if I've ever seen one!
She's got a leopard leg warmer!
She is just a precious little girl!!
Oh, look she has a fancy leg!
So we have a leopard leg and poodle foot... I think partners in crime in the making!
Cute little pixie and so fashion forward!
Hi Little Santas Helper. So glad you are now at the Sanctuary. You are going to be just fine.That little leg of yours makes you very special. What a cutie. Settle in. You are safe now. Nothing but love from now on.💕💕🐾🐾💕💕.
so cute with a magic leg😍😍
Ohmagawd that little leg!!
aww she needs to join Ms. Kitty in the Eden house such an adorable little nugget I can't believe someone just tossed her away
Ok ... I believe she has someone’s heart ♥️‼️💋🐶...
Welcome to the good life Santa's Little Helper! :)
She is precious, and so tiny, she will soon stop that growling. That will disappear as soon as she knows people are there to help her. What a wonderful little baby she is. Someone is going to be so blessed to have her to light up their home. She will start showing some spirit and spunk very soon...
She’s so cute! Love that left leg. 🐾🐾 ❤️
I think she is beautiful and cute and someone is going to be very lucky! ❤❤
Isn’t she the cutest thing?
Do you know how old she is? Has she been vetted yet?
So if I didn't have rowdy grandsons who would scare her so, I would be putting in an adoption form for this little darling! Someone take her and love her fear away.
😍 SHE IS ADORABLE!!! So happy she was saved and brought to where she will begin to forever feel Love and being cared for.She looks like she's right at home in your arms...just saying. Maybe she weighed heavily on your heart and mind because she is supposed to be yours. Don't worry what number she would make...what is more important is how it feels. I will be praying them all to get better so they may each find their FUREVER HOME...even though I think one already has!! 😀💕🎄
Grrr why does my count have a dog limit. I still have a spot left in my bed for one that size.
She’s not gonna be at the Ranch long!!
Just the cutest little girl ❤️
Oh she is adorable! And that magic paw is the bomb!
Wonderful for the new sanctuary and that you saved this precious girl
She's just the cutest little girl
