Rhythm and blues

What's that song, "I got rhythm, I got music"? I went to visit all my friends at the dogtor yesterday -- they just LOVE having me there to cuddle all over! So I got in my cuddles and kisses and belly scratches like usual, then got about sixty million cookies from the dogtor herself. She knows how to win over a dog's heart, doesn't she??

 "Uh, why did the cookies stop?"

Then Momma shoved my jaw open -- VERY bad-mannered! -- and showed the dogtor a little growth I have on my gums. Nothing to worry about, but it needs to come off and get biopsied just to make sure. But then the dogtor listened to my heart and said "Hmm." (That's never a good sign.)

It turns out I have a bit of an arrhythmia with my heart, meaning it's beating a little irregularly. That could mean nothing much, or it could mean more of a heart problem. We have to figure out which is which before I have surgery on my gums, because bad heart + anesthesia = bad! I think everyone's just overreacting, but if you could spare a few crossed paws, I'd appreciate it. For Momma's sake.

Quick pupdate! Momma gots a call from the dogtor this morning, and she said I have the bloodwork of a puppy! So that's a good sign. I still have to see the specialist to check on my heart, but everything else is fine and dandy.


  1. I haf ALL my paws crossed!!!!! You take very good care....get rid of that nasty ole lump thingy, don't need no Klingons
    And I nose you are all heart so that must be why your heart is beating its own little happy dance.

  2. Jessie, were you thinking of Stanley when they listened to your heart? We hope that is all it is! Crossing our Paws over that mouth intruder too!

    Your Pals,

    1. It was my -- Casey's -- heart, not Jessie's! :) They say Jessie has a little heart murmur that isn't causing any trouble. We've known about it for a while. I think it's murmuring "Stanley"!

  3. lots of crossed paws for you and mama.. hope all is well. Jake needs a growth removed from his eyelid. he is 12, we chose to leave it alone.
