Mona, Weenie, & The Mommy, Too. This next paragraph is what the Slimmer Pug's momma wrote in her post today. Please stop over to Prissy's page to let them know you are thinking of them.
Please send her your best power of the paw, crossed-paws, and prayers.
From what Miss Sarah (the mommy) told our mama it deals with a mass in
one of the following areas: the pancreas, the liver, or the spleen. The
good news is that whatever it is has been shrinking since she went to
the vet Monday evening; however, they are unsure at this time which
organ is affected and what the diagnosis is at this time. Please pray
for mama Sarah and Mona as they need the support during this difficult
So......one night while Dad was at work, she added onto Alcatraz and made the fence go right against the back door so all she had to do is open the door and we could run down the steps and be in a safe area. Mom was glad, we were glad, Dad was mad. He didn't want the fence bigger and didn't see what the big deal was about carrying us, or us running around ....Mom may have said some real bad words and just ignored what he said UNTIL last night when mom came home from work and when she pulled into the driveway her new fence was GONE...GONE LIKE THE WIND....she was stunned....she walked into the door and Dad was chuckling and said he fixed it back as it was cos he was tired of us digging holes close to the house etc.
Remember those fireworks I told you about yesterday with the buzzards, well they were NOTHING compared to the words that came out of our Mom's mouth. Gussie and I hid behind the couch and of course Maggie was taking notes so she could practice saying those bad words later in front of the mirror. Mom was so mad and upset and bawling....just plain MAD. She refused to talk to Dad at all last night, and later he TRIED to fix it but that didn't turn out well either. MOM is going to talk to her son in law and this weekend they are gonna fix it good where DAD can't tear it up and she doesn't have to carry us all out to the fence again. She didn't even kiss DAD goodbye this morning when she went to work, and he called later and asked her if she did. She said NO. DAD is really in the doghouse, big time this time and I think Mom is going to stay mad for awhile, well at least until the new better improved fence gets put up. Sometimes those humans that we dearly love make life so much harder than it needs to be.
ps. Mom wanted to know if any of you have had to deal with dogs digging holes around the fence and what you did about it?
