Mom beat dad home today and she sat out on the porch with us. It was a really nice day out, very sunny and warm and breezy. When dad got home we got to go to the dog park! I ran around and barked at everyone, and made sure to sniff lots of things. Many people gave me attention but more than a few of them commented on my health issues. I always have thought that was rather rude of people, and it makes me self-conscious of my appearance and it really takes away from the enjoyment of the dog park.
Later, mom and dad told me that the blood draw this morning turned out OK. The vet said I am healthy enough to go through surgery. They said that tomorrow the vet is going to remove some of my lumps and make me more comfortable. Dad said he will put me to sleep (not that bad kind of putting to sleep - I made sure I understood dad very clearly and that the vet was not going to put me to sleep permanently, I still have a lot of bassety things I want to do and I am starting to like my new home). Once I am asleep (just temporarily) they will do surgery on me. I will wake up with a few stitches but lots less tumors, and I will go through a recovery period. Then I should be good as new. Mom says I will be like a 'new man'. I wonder...
I wonder how many years they will take off me
And lastly, today is National Dog Biscuit Day. We celebrated by getting a new bag of treats tonight. I liked mine but to be perfectly honest I am a little worried about tomorrow. I haven't been to surgery since I was a pup and got fixed. I am not the young strapping hound I once was, and I hope that everything goes OK. Especially now that I have a couple of special lady friends - I need to come back in good shape so I can take them out to the dog park and show them a good time. Their names are Sadie and Maggie, we met at the Cyberhound.
So if you happen to have a moment to spare please cross your paws for me tomorrow. I will have dad write about me once I come home. Thanks to everyone who has supported me and my surgery, we really appreciate it.
So... I will see everyone when I get back.
