"It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are." - Unknown

Hi dearest friends,

Today Mommy took me to see my oncologist. I told Mommy there was nothing to worry about but you know how Mommies are. So I jumped into my car and waited for Mommy to put the trash out before we left. She was dragging her feet so I said:
"Come on Mommy, your to nervous to drive."
I got an excellent report and was smiling ear to ear, of course, Mommy was crying 
 I told her it was OK, she could relax now. We was i8n & out of there in less than an hour.
Since it was still early Mommy said we'd go get my car's state inspection. I was very excited because that meant I got to see Miss Cindy. She always has treats for me.

"Mommy, where's Miss Cindy? I don't see her anywhere!"
While we was waiting, I decided to do a roach on the carpet. It wasn't as good
as roaching in grass but sometimes we just have to take things as they are.
Mommy tried to catch me rolling over and roaching on my back but I was to quick for her. That's why she hates digital cameras and we can't get videos to take. Mommy took a little cute one with some kids that were playing with me and me roaching.
"Hi Miss Cindy!"
"Did ya bring me anything?"
After all that playing with them kids and eating my treats,  I gots tuckered out playing and jumped in a chair to take a quick nap. Playing with 4 kids is hard work.
Tiger update:

Mommy here...........................I'm taking over for Mona now. It has started raining here with a lot of thunder so Mona has decided to hide under the computer desk.

Sandra & I took Tiger to Dr Briles for a recheck the way the Emergency Room doctor had instructed us to do. As you can see from the big smile on his face, he is looking very good and is very frisky. Finally like the Tiger we all know and love.
Just like every dog I've ever had, as soon as we got to Aldine Animal, he got really quite and started shaking. What is it about dogs that as soon as they got into the vet's office they start whimpering and shaking? Mona did the same thing when we got to the oncologist's office.
 Tiger is doing very well at this point. Dr Briles viewed his x-rays with me again while Sandra was calming Tiger down. I guess Sandra & I were so nervous Friday night that the X-rays made more sense to me this time. The 7th & 9th ribs are the ones that are broken and you can see how bad they were broken. Several muscles were torn and then the lung has a hole. Dr Briles said since all the swelling around  his body had gone down that the lung may close itself because there is no air escaping under his skin. He did not change the bandages. He said he'll remove them on Saturday. He told Sandra to continue the medication, crate rest and watch him very closely for any throwing up, not eating, etc. After he removes the bandages, we'll go from there. Hopefully he will not need any kind of surgery unless his lung collapses. We pray that doesn't happen.
It was was so hot today, over 100, and poor Tiger was exhausted after all that poking and prodding they did today. He doesn't like the heat....
and he was thirsty too.

All in all, it was a good report for Tiger and a marvelous for one for my girl.

Mona is still under the table, it's still raining & it's time for both our dinners so from my girl,

Love, kisses and {{{huggies}}} to all......Mona
