Toby’s Peeps are Thankful

thinkingYeah, this is my pondering pose. I’ve got lots to ponder today. I even missed posting over the weekend because I was pondering too much.

Toby’s peeps are thankful for the power of the paw that you guys sent. He had three lumps removed. One of them was the big M. Yes. Melanoma. But, his dogtor says he “got it all” which, of course, is a good thing. Woo Hoo for my buddy!

He goes back to have his stitches removed this week.

Meanwhile, moi, well, I’m preparing my mind for tomorrow. I’m sure it’s nothing. After all, the needle aspiration didn’t show any abnormal cells.

But I’m going to lose a little bit of my eyebrow. And a little bit of my furs on my neck where that other little mole is coming off.

Oh boy.

I can’t imagine having my dapper good looks dashed with a shaving of my brow. Can you?

What You Learned Today:

  • Sorry to say this, but we Scotties are “cancer magnets” as somebody once said.
  • We get it a lot.
  • Along with dogs with black gums.
  • Oh, how I wish it weren’t true.
  • But, I need to look at is this way: There’s power of the paw/purr. And, if you’re just joining us, that translates to POTP.
  • POTP works.
  • And then, there are the wonderful dogtors who remove those nasty things.
  • Thank dawgness.
  • For my friend Toby, and his peeps, thank you for your good wishes.
  • And for me, I know you’ve got my back, too.
  • It’s just too much for a Monday……

    Aw Stuart – you will be just dandy – I’m confident of it! The power of positive thinking can’t hurt either! But know that the POTP is sending you good vibes for tomorrow. Best of luck to you and your peeps my friend.

  2. Stuart I think you’re gonna be just fine my friend… won’t even notice that little bit of eyebrow gone OR the other little lump gone…..GONE is a good thing really in these cases. You’ll be just as devastatingly handsome I’m sure. As for “melanoma” I’ve not had it – but my Mom has – twice…..the power of pawsitive thinking helped – it always does! So happy that Toby is fine.

    Hugs, Sammy

  3. Oh, Stuart, you handsome devil. A little trim to your eyebrow will do nothing to diminish your splendidness. XXX

    Stuart….you will just look surprised with your eyebrow trimmed….have the other trimmed too so they will grow back even. You can wear sunglasses and be mysterious until it’s back the way you like. I’ve had some odd bits removed too….all were benign little lumps n bumps. Sending you brave Scottie Arrooos to lift your spirits.

  12. Boxers are cancer-magnets too! My sissy Cinderella has had six lumps removed in her life, and she’s having another one removed this week. It’s on a weird spot on her gum and she’s really old, so Momma is very worried about her. I’m sure you’ll come through it bravely and get lots of treats!

  13. pawedblog says:

    Aww Stuart, we are sending all the love and positive thinking you way from over here too… and you know what? We think you will be just fine!! And don’t you worry about having some of your brw shave off… a little bit of hair could never detract from how handsome you are!!
    Hugs, Carrie & Pups x

  14. corkscot says:

    I’ve been told that Scotties being close to the ground is one of the reasons that they are more prone to cancer. We know that your good looks will not be compromised by your dogtor visit tomorrow. We all are think9ing positive thoughts for you.
