POTP for Bart, Please...

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!

KB said...

I am sending the strongest possible POTP. And, you might remember that K had a toe amputated. My recollection was that the recovery was not that hard, nor did she seem to have too much pain. We bought her a Therapaw to help support that paw. It never worked that great for her (the boot was a little too big) but I hear it helps lots of dogs with amputated toes. If you want to have hers, I will gladly find it and send it to you (but your paw might be bigger than hers was).

Enough of those details - I am sending lots of love and will be thinking of you all the time. You are such a sweet boy, Bart.

Cowspotdog said...

we will have all 8 of our paws together for you Bart. You certainly are the most interesting dog in the world - after me that is :) :) :) :)

houndstooth said...

Of course you're still the most interesting dog in the world! Bart, you'll still be stunningly handsome, with or without your toe. We're sending you all our good wishes for tomorrow, and a few kisses, too!

Jacobi said...

Dear Bart,

Here are licks and wags from me and Ojo. We hope when your toe goes away that all the bad stuff goes with it. Our Cat Named Keisha had three toes removed and then was like a kitten when she healed - so we hope you are like a puppy! And we hope you get lots of bacon for having to go through this. Much healing energy from all of us!
