I have been worried about Beagle all day and I haven't met him either. It happens to those of us who are animal lovers. I get so upset when I see Dr. Po have to put someone's pet down.

Thanks Addie. Beagle should be fine. She's old, but feisty, like we are! All the big male dogs in the neighborhood are terrified of my little 22 pound monster. Unless she knew them from puppyhood, she bullies them mercilessly.

I had a great fear today that I had been "gifted" with a flea and tick ridden, old, neurotic Pomeranian. I was wrong. The owner called me on my cell almost 2 hrs after I close. I had called her several times and left messages and never heard back.

I told her about the fleas and ticks and told her that I'd left a card on the counter that said she needed Nexgard for the poor little thing. I told her that I'd set the dog up in a large cage with food and water. I told her where the secret key was hidden and to leave her check on the counter, take the dog, and lock back up. I can get away with doing that in this one horse town.

I have 8 dogs already and they are all getting old. I never turn down a dog sent to me by fate but I thanked God that I wasn't gifted with on old neurotic Pom.

So Dawg, any word on that lump? Inquiring minds want to know the latest news on our Beagle.

Our pets

She goes in tomorrow morning. No food after 8 pm tonight, which will perplex her tomorrow after her morning walk, but in at 8 am, then they will extract the broken tooth and dig out the subcutaneous tumor. It's about the size of a large grape, but firm, not squishy as fatty lipomas usually are. It doesn't sound like the vets are too concerned.

I have no idea how she broke her canine tooth.

Getting her teeth cleaned while she is under?

Yes. I should have waited to get her nails clipped, they do it for free when she's under, but I paid for it yesterday, not knowing she was going to have surgery.

One thing for sure. They will give him a really thorough looking over while she is under.
