Going Bats on Thankful Thursday

Hi evfurry

We are proud to join Pepi Smart Dog’s  blog hop today


As you may know i had a bit of surgery on Monday..well yesterday Grannie and Grandad had to go into town and rather than leave me to my own devices and risk me getting into some serious staple removing they took me along for the drive.

Well after Grandad went in to Officeworks and left Grannie and i parked in a rather unfortunate position…

Excuse me is this supposed to be a joke!
Excuse me is this supposed to be a joke!

We headed to Bendigo Botanical gardens..i have not been there before and i went in to investigate the Bats..wow they sound like monkeys and sure do make a lot of noise..but i was so thankful to get out and have a walk..

Well to be fair they are not REALLY bats but Flying Foxes..Grannie did a lovely story on them here  if you would like to learn more 🙂

After the Gardens we had a brief stroll around town and then headed home..



The most Thankful thing happened later that afternoon though..Dr Mark rang from Vets All Natural and told Grannie that the lump from my groin that he removed was a Squamous Cell Carcinoma..now that does not sound like something to be thankful for but the lab said Dr Mark did a great job and got clean margins!

So i get my staples out next Thursday and just keep on getting better.

These can come back in old pups Dr Mark said..but for now i am fine and Grannie and Grandad are going to be checking me all the more and making sure this Summer (which while it is now a polar blast is hard to imagine) that i am covered up good..we will be getting good shirts that are sunsafe and sunscreen galore..please peeps check your sunbathing pups this summer for signs of nasty things..sores that do not heal etc..and keep your fur kids safe from skin cancers..

So as you see i have a lot to be thankful for today..

  1. Awesome report sweet friend. I knew you were tough – all of this just proves it. Now, remember to wear the shirt my mom/dad got you. Snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon
    P.S. Loved the video – that was totally awesome and had my piggy ears standing straight up.

  2. I am glad you are on the mend Doc. Also glad the surgeon got clean margins. Poor Joanie had a mast cell tumor on her head over a year ago and they had to go back in a second time to get more. I love bats. I will check out what your Mum wrote about them. XO

  4. You got to go for a nice walk sweet Doc and you look so cute in your pretty blue coat. There sure were a lot of bats in those trees. They are very interesting to say the least. We are sure happy to hear the good report from the Doctor and that you will be getting the staples out soon. Stay well and enjoy sweetie. Hugs and nose kisses

  5. Oh how nice that you got to have a walkies adventure while you’re waiting to get “de-stapled” !! I’m glad your surgeon did such a great job getting ALL of your tumor up to clear margins…….he’s a “keeper” for sure but you won’t need more surgery I’m sure……….you’re good to go Doc – just make sure you stay out of the sun unprotected OK?

    Hugs, Sammy

      1. Dr. Mark will make sure you hardly feel a thing – I bet you get a topical anesthetic so your skin won’t hurt – – – when Mom had her last staples out after a surgery that’s what they did anyway……she was so happy to have them out and you will be too!!!!!

        Hugs, Sammy
