Hello all,
Thank you for all your kind words whilst I have been poorly. I am feeling much better now. My stitches will come out in another week.
Meanwhile, I have been helping mum and dad to get more cardboard into the compost to balance out all the grass.
This involves ripping up cardboard boxes into small pieces - hardly a chore for someone who likes to run round shredding things!!
I am glad to help.

Me minus the lumps (well 2 of them anyway)....

Hi all,
It's worse than it looks (so they tell me).  A zip on the right hand side, one under my chin and two shaved front legs from injections and a drip during and after the operation.
I certainly look, and feel, like I've been in the wars.
Mum and dad stayed up with me last night and I think they might tonight too if I need them.

Anyway, no fear, mum to the rescue with another invalidity jacket home made especially to not rub my neck but cover my side zip so I cant scratch it easily.

I hope not to be wearing this for too long.  Don't worry, I have two of them so they can be swapped and washed daily if I dribble too much!
My ensemble is complete with a nice drawstring tie to keep my t-shirt from dangling in any awkward places!
Thanks mum!

Me and My Lump...

Hi all, I hope you are all well. Sorry haven't been in touch, but May was very busy wasn't it? Lots of lazing in the garden and snoozing in the shade.

Anyway, I thought I'd show you my lump. It has been growing steadily, but fairly slowly over the last 6-8 months.  You can see it just above my right shoulder, almost in my armpit.  Here I am lying down to show you where it is.

After a weeks holiday at my Pet Hotel, mum and dad have realised that the lump is now growing more quickly and I believe plans are afoot to have Mr Lump removed next week!!

Now, please don't worry about me - the vet has said that, subject to a blood test to make sure I am healthy and fit enough for the operation, there should be no problems at all in removing it and making a full recovery - with another proud battle scar!!

I just thought I'd let you see a picture of how big the lump is now, to maximise on the sympathy I hope to get when I show you my stitches next weekend.
I just hope mum doesn't stick me in another of those 80's t-shirts! So embarrassing! [See post 19th June 2010.]
