Hi EveryPup,

Well the rumors are true....I am now a Houstonian!!!!! I tell ya' pups - it's HOT here!!! And dawg, we have had some really big thunder/lightening storms since we arrived!!

So now I have gotten rid of my muzzle rot but we couldn't move from Tyler fast enough and it is back....uuuggghhh!!! I have one really large lesion on my muzzle just above my mouth...and it sure does make me want to lick it!!!

Also, before I moved from Tyler, I had a Level 1 Cancerous Tumor removed from my upper right front leg.....I have a 4" incision to remove a tumor the size of a colossal olive!!!! So I just got the rest of the staples removed yesterday by my new vet here in Houston, Dr Taylor - he and his staff are just the coolest!!!!!!!!!! Mom had to do some pretty inventive things to keep me from licking my incision!!! We tried a lamp shade and I tell ya that was disastrous!!! Then we tried a Elizabethan collar - and Mom used that some - but I couldn't figure out how to lay down with it she hung a dish towel from my collar; now that worked pretty good....but after we moved she finally figured out a kid's long sleeve T shirt was just the ticket... it worked like a charm.

So now I am almost completely mended from the surgery. But still taking medicine for the incision and that danged ol' muzzle rot!!!!!!!!!!!

But now we live in the BIG CITY of Houston and I am officially a Houstonian. This is the same place where Mom & Dad were raised (Dad was born here) and they met here and had their 2 skin kids here!!! So they have come full circle!!

Now I just gotta learn to swim & play in the pool. Any tips on this pups???

Barking only the BEST to you & yours,

Glad you got your tumor taken care of but sorry to hear your muzzle rot is back!
Ya better check with Mac on that swimming stuff, I am NO GOOD at that, even with my life jacket, I just don't like it at all!!! I don't know how Mac Macadoo does it, I just wanna sink!! :-(
