"Where there is Love and with the Power of the Paw, there is Hope."

Hi my dearest friends,

There are not enough words to to express the gratitude for the outpouring of love and kind words from all of you. Those words are what have kept Mommy going and even though we haven't posted in a while, reading your bloggies every night meant more than we could ever say. Mommy just didn't know what to say, and God knows she is a chatter box. Mommy wants to say a special thank you to Claudette, Rocky's Mom, for posting on the DWB news room that I was having problems and also to my dearest friend, Khyra, for letting everybody know what was happening and that Mommy just wasn't up to blogging.......she is such a cry baby, Mommy not Khyra! Also thanks to my Tiger, Frankie furter, Raising Addie, and so many more of you that I can't remember who you all you are, for spreading the word.

Mommy has made a decision. We are not gonna let this nasty stuff in my body stop me from having fun and doing the things I love, so let me tell you about my weekend.

Yesterday, I had my stitches taken out. Mommy and Dr Briles had a nice long talk about what will happen tomorrow when I get to the oncologist. Keep your paws crossed for me. I'm not scared, I'm a big girl. Mommy will cry just cause that's what she does but she says we will take each day one at a time. There are lots of us that have had mast cell cancer and never had to have chemo. My foster Mommy called Mommy and she told her she had a dachsie that had it, never had to have chemo and lived for 6 years. So there is hope...right!!

This pictures were taken Friday afternoon before I went to get my stitches out.

Some roaching Friday night. I was rolling so fast some of these picture came out all blurred, see my eyes waving in the wind.

Mommy took these pictures of me playing with my stuffie that I got from Addie, Lucy and Hailey. It started raining and she made me come inside....."I wasn't through roaching, Mommy!!!"

Yesterday afternoon, the fun really started. It was just what the doctor order. A overnight trip to Aunt Judy's to play with my buddies.

NOTICE: My Doofuss Mommy forgot to load my usual driving the car picture. I always help her drive. She don't know how to load a picture that she left out in a certain spot so please somebody please explain how to do it for the old woman.

Of course Mommy had to get her "Georgie" fix as soon as we got there. As you can see, I didn't let him have all of them.

These pics were taken last night. We was all just goofing around before bedtime in these pictures. It rained all afternoon so we couldn't go outside to play and it keep raining in the evening, but we did need the rain.

These next pictures Mommy took this morning. Isn't George the most handsome boy with his little kissable brown nose. Did to ever tell you how, much Mommy loves Toby, oops, I mean George.

This picture is of Bandit neck. He has a boo boo too! Right after Mommy found my lump, Aunt Judy found one on Bandit's neck. He had surgery to have his lump removed and Aunt Judy is waiting for the results. His doctor doesn't think it's mast cell but wanted to make sure. Better safe than sorry!!

Of course, what is a trip to Aunt Judy's' without beautiful flower and vegetables pictures growing every where. The bell peppers are for the boys and Brooklyn...they love snacking on them.

Mommy will get in trouble for showing you guys this last picture but she just gotta show you Aunt Judy's nightshirt. "Don't get mad, Aunt!!"

Okee Dokee... that's it for tonight. Mommy promised me she will report tomorrow on what the oncologist has to say.

Love, kiss and huggies to all....Mona & Mommy too.

PS....Mommy to lots of videos but nothing will load correctly. We'll try again tomorrow.

Mona, it' so very good that you and Mommy have decided not to let anything stop you from living life right now. If you're feeling good and ready for fun, have it, by all means. None of us know what tomorrow will bring. We only really have right now.

You have been in our thoughts and prayers every day and will continue to be there. We'll be eager to know what the results are, but remember, even if they're not the very best that doesn't mean you won't be all right. All this stuff is so much more treatable nowadays.

love, Lola
