Hello Friends of Blogville. I have malignant melanoma - in my TOE of all places. Tomorrow I'm going to have an operation where the vet is going to steal my toe and hopefully all the bad sickies with it.
My humans are kinda freaking out because I'm almost 10 and I have some other issues like my spinal issues and I take lots of pain meds already.
Also, my Angel Sister Allie had to have a TOE removed, and it took her several weeks to recover.
She ended up with the evil "C" monster about a year later anyway and she went to the Bridge.
I hate to worry my humans. They are so sensitive. Butt my attitude is, "let's just go for it!!"
Carpe Diem and all that!! If I'm going down, I'm going down fighting! I had a bath yesterday and I'm still The Most Interesting Dog in the World!!

Dr. Sarah said they can give me different pain meds. She's not going to do the surgery
cuz she loves me too much because she wants it done at the main hospital and it's going to be done by the fancy schmancy orthopedic surgeon. Butt we already have plans to meet up on Friday.
So anyway, wish me luck and please, please, send me some extra-strength POTP.
See you all soon!
