"Our dogs, like our shoes, are comfortable. They might be a bit out of shape and a little worn around the edges, but they fit well." ~ Bonnie Wilcox, Old Dogs, Old FriendsMax was getting shaggy and itchy and hot. He went to the vet and had a bath and a hair cut and had his nails done. He got to talk with his doggy friends, catch up on the news at the fire hydrant, took a little medication induced nap and when he woke up, it was all done! No hysteria! Then the ladies loved on his handsome self and gave him a treat. Of course with a fresh new look and a baby powder smell, he had to have a new toy. It squeaks that long squeak he loves and he can hold it so many ways. Don't worry, he still loves his basketball although it is really getting tattered and dirty. Such a show off. He had his pacifier for only five minutes before tossing it up in the air and watching it bounce on the patio.
As for his lymphoma, it has been four months on chemo pills; one every three weeks. So far no lymphoma in site, good appetite, good blood counts and still high spirits. It is almost time for the figs to ripen and he makes his rounds looking for any that fall off the tree as well as gazing at the low branches. As long as he is happy and active, we will continue. To look at him, you would never know he had lymphoma.
Max will visit Friday's Ark this week and try to go see the dogs at the Carnival of the Dogs hosted by Mickeys Musings. I wonder if she is back from her honeymoon? (end of post)
