My buddy Atom Ant, a foster dog with LBR, could use some good vibes from everyone! Here's his story:

It's not a rumor
I have a tumor
For this I'm bummed times ten.

It's not so swell
It has mast cells
So it's back to the Vet once again.

From what I've learned
There is a concern
That the margins might not be clean

But I'm just a pup
And I'll keep my chin up
Dirty margins? Well, that would be mean.

To benefit my life
I'll be under the knife
Next Thursday, October twenty-eighth.

Would you please be so kind
As to keep me in mind
And by all means keep the faith?

I'm a busy boy
I'm full of joy
I still have so damn much to do

This won't get me down
I refuse to frown
After all..... I still have to write chapter two.

    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae

  14. Atom, Maggie Mae sent us over to pass on some loving thoughts! My sister and I have both had mast cell tumors removed. We were lucky and our margins were good and we are happy and healthy. We are a bit scarred up, but mom thinks it gives us more character.

    Sending the Power of the Paw!
