It’s Duncan’s Day

I know it’s Wordless Wednesday in dog blog land, but, as you saw last Wednesday, I don’t do too well with that. Then, I thought, maybe Wednesdays around here should be “Watercolor Wednesdays” since everybody liked my Aunt Jane’s photo-editing of my pictures. She made me look like a watercolor painting. Like in today’s picture. That might be a good idea for later, but for now I’d like you all to think about Duncan.

Duncan, a Scottie friend of mine, is having surgery today. He’s got cancer. Of the bone, I think. In his mouth.

Now, I’m feeling exceptionally optimistic about Duncan. He and I share the same doctor (Lori Elliott). And, this same doctor performed surgery on BoBo, my predecessor, and he lived years beyond the malignant melanoma in his mouth would have had him believe. (Scotties are stubborn don’t forget!)

Think about Duncan today, would you please? Thanks ever so much.

Here’s a big ‘ole ArrrOOOOOOO of thanks for your thoughts.

What You Learned Today:

  • Scotties get lots of cancer.
  • Get checked often.
  • By a good doctor. Like mine. Lori Elliott.
  • There are lots of good surgical techniques that work wonders.
  • Pawsitive thoughts today everybody!
  • Thanks. Very much. From the bottom of my little frog dog feet.

    Duncan is out of surgery and awake. Dr. Elliott says he is doing fine and she feels very good about the surgery. We will do everything possible to control his pain. Since she didn’t have to take the canines on the lower jaw, he should adapt very well. Thanks for everyone’s thoughts. Let’s hope for a speedy recovery. – Dani
