It seems that rumor we heard about Patches going to Athens is really true! Next Tuesday, our mom and Aunt Wendy are going to take Patches and Ezzy Rider with them for an all-day trip to Athens, Georgia. They are going to meet somebody from the Airedale Rescue Group and three other 'dales. I told Penny that maybe we'll get lucky and they will forget to bring Patches back home. Uh oh...Mom heard me talking to Penny and she told me there's NO chance! Darn! I thought, maybe if Patches stayed in Athens, there would be more food and treats for me and Penny. Mom told me not to worry about it!
Penny's test results finally came back from the lumps on her back. It seems that the results were sort of inconclusive. They say there is about a 95% chance that they are NOT cancerous! They are probably just what our mom thought...sebaceous cysts. I'm not sure we spelled that right, but they are oily cysts at the base of hair follicles. The one on her neck is already gone and the v-e-t said Mom could use black salve on them. It draws the nasty stuff out and hopefully, they will go away! Right now, she smells a lot like tar! If they DON'T go away, they might have to be removed, but we'll wait and see what happens.
Our Wisteria is blooming, right now and so far, the cold weather we had hasn't effected the blossoms. For the last two years, every time the Wisteria started to bloom, we had a heavy frost and it toasted the buds before they could bloom! Ha ha, Mother Nature, we gotcha THIS year!
Well, everybuddy, that's it for today! We have to go help Mom nurse her sinuses, now. She was outside for a few hours and we are at the peak of pollen season. Everything here, looks like someone dusted it with yellow flour! Our blue Aire-mobile is yellow and our mom can't breathe without sneezing! Of course, the YELLOW pollen is too big to bother people's sinuses, but all the pollen that you can't see is doing a number on everyone! Well, everyone but US! It doesn't seem to bother us doggies.
