Everyone loves a good Comeback story. Whether life or sports we are always inclined to root for the underdog.
And so I will summarise the story of our cover girl today, Aya.
Aya started adventuring with us 3 years ago.
Straight from the start she was an extremely popular companion both for walkers and the other dogs.
Despite being middle-aged she always was most keen to show her puppy side.
During the course of last autumn she appeared to start having mild discomfort in one of her paws.
Believing it to be a simple infection or fungal problem, she happily continued to play along with a paw sock.
After more time and treatments the vets decided to eventually do a biopsy. By this point we had decided that she should take a pause from walks until we found out more.
It was found that Aya had cancer and the best course of action would be to amputate one toe on her paw to prevent it spreading.
Throughout the process I had always insisted on keeping her place available to her, hoping for her return.
Her rehab, as it often is with humans as well, was slow, painful and non-linear.
Eventually the hard decision for her to not return was taken not long before summer holidays.
Clearly somehow Aya understood this and thought she would prove us all wrong.
In the middle of my summer holidays I received the fantastic news that she was cancer-free, energetic and walking well and without pain. And would her walk spots still be available to her?
Of course they would be.
And so today for the first time in 7 months Aya, the Comeback Queen, was out adventuring with her mates once more.
