Just a Picture of the Poor Sweet Puppy...

...who had a growth removed from his pinky toe today. Thanks for all of your thoughts.

He sure doesn't LOOK like a dog who just got out of surgery! What a happy dog. He's zonked on the floor now; he can't have his normal miles of walking for two weeks OR go outside to run and play, so here's hoping we can keep him happy and mentally entertained in our tiny house!

We will have the biopsy report next week; hopefully there is either no cancer or it was very localized and is now gone (due to the removal of the growth)!

Oh! Thinking good thoughts for him! I know how hard that wait is!

He's so young - he should be fine. It's wonderful that you are so conscientious and noticed it in all that fur.

Oh, I so hope he's gonna be okay! Here's hoping for the best. It's so hard to wait, isn't it? Wish they could tell us instantly. In the meantime, he does look very happy! Maybe it hurt him & now he's happy it's gone.

I hope he's going to be OK! He's a standard poodle? Or PWD? We have a standard too. Greatest dogs!

Oh Puppy!! I hope he's resting, ok. Don't they look both sad and funny when all their fluffy fur is shaved off for these procedures and there is the skinny, bony leg showing? Hugs to him from me and my pups.

Allie~ Thanks! With all the grass seeds and mud from playing this summer, we are constantly picking things out of his toes. Sort of a blessing, I guess!

Jayne~ He's SUCH a happy puppy! Thanks for your thoughts!

Pedal Power~ He's a standard poodle mix; but you can barely tell he's not a purebred. Everyone (even the vets) think he's a purebred poodle with an undocked tail.) I've seen your pups on your blog... they're gorgeous!

Jen~ Thanks! He's sleeping again... hasn't really moved since we got home. It will be funny to see his shaved paw when we take the bandage off!

Poor puppers! Doesn't he have a kitty to keep him entertained?

He is beautiful, hope all is ok

Jen, Hey it's Jon from Project Rowhouse - what sort of pup is that? Reminds me of my doodles!

Jennifer said...

Rob~ No kitties! One half of Tiny Old House would dissolve into a puddle of snot and watery eyes and asthma... and it's NOT me. He'll have to make do with staring out the window at the neighborhood cats!

ModerneMama~ Thanks! It's his one strength... helps make up for the jumping.

Jon~ He is a doodle in a close cut... a golden retriever/poodle mix. We have two. What kind do you have? I'd love to see pictures!

What a beautiful baby. He looks like a giant version of my cockapoo.
