Okay so I figured I would catch you all up on what's been going on in my world. One of my favorite people passed away as Missy has probably already told you, I was sad but, I know he wouldn't want me to be sad so I have been shaking it off. I also found on the 23rd of November that I have something called Mass Cell Cancer, Mom cried a lot when she found out but, Dad told her crying won't make things better. I have been getting to see one of my favorite people more often now though the vet. Dr. Bettencourt, he is a nice man always gentle with me, expect when he kept poking my lump but, I guess that was standard procedure Mommy told me so. I have been getting a lot of allergy shots here lately to keep my lump small and Mom told me that I will be going in for surgery two days after my birthday. I hope that isn't my present or I will be upset. Then again I did over hear Mom talking about getting me a new smoked beef bone and that made me happy, though I know spying is bad. Not my fault Mom doesn't always notice if my eyes are open or closed when I lay on the dog bed. Mom has been taking a lot more pictures here lately, starting to creep me out to be honest cause the camera steals part of your soul if you ask Dad. Missy is a camera hog so if that is true I guess she has no soul, interesting theory to think about. For someone with no soul she sure does eat a lot and talk a lot. I mean when the raccoon was in the backyard all she did was run the fence line and bark. She had 20lbs on me at the time and all she could do is bark? I had to be the man of the house and tell that raccoon where to go. Mom and Dad were telling me to leave it though, which is silly cause he isn't suppose to be there and I was just telling him that. I don't understand them sometimes but, I guess it is better that way. They don't always understand Missy and I either. I have been watching the cats a lot more often here lately cause the cats always seem to get away with stuff that I can't and I started taking notes. I must say the progress I am making is amazing then again I think the vet visits help me out a little but, who knows. I will definitely keep you updated on everything going on around here but, I got to run Mom is talking about sweaters and just said my name never good to hear.

oh Monty so so sorry to hear of your Mast Cell diagnosis. Tell your Mom not to worry too much though, I have been battling cancer since May of 2007 and I am still kicking it's butt. I have what is called undifferentiated sarcoma. I had surgery to remove my lump but the Dr. couldn't get clean margins. Mom has been taking me to a holistic vet and I get all kinds of supplements to help my immune system kep it at bay. We just know you will do fine too. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers and if your Mom has any questions feel free to p-mail us. She may also want to join our group on Yahoo called Canine Cancer Comfort. The folks there are great and very knowelegable about canine cancer and how to deal with it.

Thanks Wyoming, Mommy joined that group that your Mom suggested and she told me she will try not to worry so much about me. She knows I am a big strong boy who will fight to survive for her. I am sorry to hear about your cancer, must be tough dealing with all of that. My vet is slightly afraid of where my lump is located because he doesn't know if he can remove it all or not which makes Mommy worry more. My lump is on my front right leg in my armpit area. The doctor talked about amputating my leg but, I love to run and I don't want that so we are going to tell him no. I mean how else can I run with my Grandma Molly for miles and miles. Someone has to help keep her in shape right? I hope you get better soon too, no one likes to be sick.
