Summer of Surgery

Well, here's Blue, fresh off today's surgery to remove a growth from her skin. It started out right before our trip, when Blue went to the vet to have a biopsy done on a bump on her right shoulder. It turns out the growth isn't cancerous (as we happily found out via voice mail upon arriving back at the rim of the Grand Canyon). But in the intervening weeks, the growth got noticeably bigger, so we decided that it had to go when we returned home.

Now if only there were a way to make an energetic little golden stop itching...

PS: After all of these diagnostics, procedures, and medicines, maybe it's time for doggie health insurance...man!

Dear Scooby,
Woof woof woof woof woof!
Blue

(Translation - Dear Scooby,
Thanks for your kind woofs. I am feeling better but can't wait until I no longer look like "Frankendog." I get my stitches out soon but I hope this fur grows back quick because it looks kind of yucky!
Love, Blue}
