Fabulous Franken-Friday

Look at this!!  And right before our Christmas photo-shoot!!

I had to have 3 lumpies removed.

Yay!  One of the best words in any language!!! 

I've been resting...and I can't go swimming till I get these franken-staples out of me.  URGH!!  It's been raining though and I HATE to get my furs wet in the rain.  I think we get to take a shorty before mom has to work tomorrow...I hope so.  You can only snooze so much.


In other news...

Last Friday we got to go to the beach with our friend Wizard!  It was warm and sunny and gorgeous at home.  

This is what the beach looked like:

It was SO foggy we couldn't even see any little dogs
who might try to sneak up on us...

My silly sister went IN THE OCEAN!!

She chased Wizard when his mom threw his toy.  Not me. No way.  
Too NUTTY as Benny and Lily would say!!


We were glad to get home.  Butt then on Sunday we had to get BATHS!!
Something about a photo shoot, but now I look like Franken-Weiler.


At least I'm still interesting!

Glad we are getting the news AFTER the fact or we would have been freaking out ( as we assume your Mom was). So good to hear all is well.

We have been hearing about all that rain out there and hoping our human brother will be OK on the roads. He has a very long commute these days and nights.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Glad the bumps were benign! Some clever prop positioning, or a Christmas sweater should hide your naked shoulder. :-)

Wyatt said...

Woof! Woof! Oh you got a boo boo but its good its just a boo boo. Oh No worries on the beach and bath ... it will be good. Lots of Golden Woofs,Sugar

GOOSE said...

So glad the lumpys were not the bad ones. I don't like to be out in the rain either, make MOM hold an umbrella over me if I have to go out. She is pretty well trained. I hope your boo boo's heal up real soon. And if your photo shoot involves Santa Paws put in a good word for me.
Have a great weekend.

Hey Bart! Hooray for three benigns that are worth a billion bucks each! We are very happy for you.

I love it that your fearless sister charges into the ocean to play ball. She is one cool girl.


Bouncing Bertie said...

Now Bart, you be super careful now and make sure that those wounds heal nicely so there are no more visits to the vet.
We are well accustomed to sea fog in Aberdeen, we call it 'haar' and the customers for Mr Trump's swanky new golf course (Bill Clinton coming in the spring, we're told) will be getting used to it too...
Toodle pip!

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

So happy the lumpies were benign. That's great news. But isn't it too cold to swim anyway? At least you got to enjoy the beach!

XXXOOO Daisy,Bella & Roxy

You didn't want to go play in the surf with Ruby? Guess that's cause your her Bro. I would have swum a mile to play with her :D

Waggin at ya,

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

I think you should proudly display your franken-staples in your photo as a celebration that all is okay! I know how it is to worry about these things.

PS: I think the beach is beautiful in any weather, but when it's cold, I love it from a distance! :-)

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Oh Bart I am so sorry that you had to have lumpies taken out... butt when you get the word that they were BeFINE that is a GOOOOOOOD thingy.
Butt now you can't go swimming??? DARN BUDDY that just isn't RIGHT.
You hurry and Heal up so you and Ruby can go have some FUN.

Dexter said...

Momma just kept staring at that beach photo of you posing so well. She says you are "magnificent!" That kind of hurts my feelings. What is it with you boxy headed dogs and my momma?

Your staples are really cool. So glad the bumps were benign.


Declan said...

So glad you're all fine and dandy mate! Deccy x

Chris said...

Oh Bart, I am so sorry for you lumpies but SO glad to hear the are to any pet owners ears. You rest up and take care,

Unknown said...

So glad to hear that those lumpies are benign! It's so scary!

The first beach picture looks so artistic and unreal but it's truly beautiful.

Get some good rest before you go swimming again!

Scooter said...

Hey Bart!
Wow, I'm so sorry about your ouchie and the lack of swimming! Very glad to hear your lumps were nothing serious. Great foggy beach scene!

Poor fun having lumpiness removed especially when it means taking it easy and no walkies

bettyj said...

This is your friend Dasko.So glad for the word "Benign" glad you all are back as I was concerned.

The Boston Lady said...

Glad those bumps are benign, Bart! I think your stitches/staples make you look quite macho! Can't wait to see your Christmas pictures! And what's with all this rain and clouds??? Ann TBL

Bassetmomma said...

Benign is a wonderful word! Love the beach pics. :)

houndstooth said...

Oh Bart, you are always interesting! I am so sorry to see you had to have lumps removed -- it must have been painful. You know what they say, though? Chicks dig scars! Every girl will find you even MORE interesting now.


P.S. Stay thirsty, my friend! *nose kisses*

B9 is the best word that can ever come out of a vet's mouth! Yay, Bart!

I agree Bart, you are the most interesting dog ever. BTW, I have a "Frankenscar" where my lower back was fused. I jump every time I see it! At least you'll grow fur to cover the scar!

Maxmom said...

That's wonderful news, Bart.
Please tell that mom of yours that I say a big 'thank you' for the beautiful advent calendar.
Lots of love from your friends in SA

The ocean does look cold. We have been having so much fog lately around here.

Yay for lumps being benign. Sorry for the staples though. Get well soon.

Kirsten (peacefuldog) said...

Oh Bart, are those staples they put in you? How wacky. Glad everything is harmless and you can go back to being a gorgeous pup :)

Ryker said...

BENIGH, one of our favorite words too! We are so happy for you.
Those foggy beach photos are very soothing. I love a good foggy day.

Oh Bart, so so so sorry about your lumps. Glad they were gone and were benign.....
Life is hard sometimes Bart!!!

Tanya Breese said...

sorry about the lumpies bartster but great news that they were benign!! that water looks much too cold!

White Dog Blog said...

Bart, do not know how we missed the news about your bumps but we are HOWLING with joy that all are benign! And it IS one of the happiest words in every language!

Greyhounds CAN Sit said...

Yep, Bart, those staples sure are interesting, there's heaps of them. I think it's probably just as well you can't go swimming as the weight of them might make you sink! We are so relieved your lumps are benign. Keep on being interesting, handsome:)

Sweet William The Scot said...

Oh my are you in a stitch! Glad to read everything is O.K. You could have gotten lost in that thick fog and fallen off the earth.
Thanks for stopping by my blog

Frank The Tank said...

Hi There, you are both beautiful! I'm new to your blog, I've read back a few posts and have really enjoyed it, especially hearing that your lumpys are not evil, I hope those nasty staples get taken out soon, how come you don't have to wear the cone of shame??
I loved the post about the red lobster, it was so fun and so touching! I hope to hear more about your adventures! Love and Licks from your new Furiend Frank XxxxX

Anonymous said...

so let me get this straight: when you swim, your furs aren't wet. but when you walk in the rain: eeegads! ???

Dog logic evades me.

Brandon - The dog with a blog said...

Glad to hear the bumps aren't benign, and don't you worry, the photo shoot will be perfect no matter what!
Looks like a lot of fun on the beach :)

You ARE still interesting. And complicated. And handsome. And SUPER smart for not going in that water. And I'm oh-so-glad that your bumpies were nothin' to worry about!

Wiggles & Wags,

Unknown said...

Hello Bart,
my name is Arno and I just read your post. I hope you are completely healed now. I loved your pics on the beach, I would like to run in the ocean with your sister and your friend, because I love water soooo much! Here in Germany is very cold at the moment, but I take a bath in the small rivers of my park every day and my mon freezes by the looking at me!
So I joined your site and I would be very happy if you take a look at my blog too!
See you soon
Nice regards
