Grania Health Scare

Just before Christmas we noticed a small lump emanating from our 11-year old Shepherd mix Grania’s gum, down over her jawline. We made an appointment as soon as we could be seen by our local vet, had it biopsied, got the bad news, and made a plan — do everything possible.

I adopted Grania (note: I didn’t “rescue” her, as she wasn’t in a burning building and I wasn’t wearing a cape) from a regional humane society in Ohio. She had been found, along with her sister, wandering on a country road.
