dog gone monday

Some of you may recall that last April our dog Baxter had a mast cell tumor removed. 

If you don’t, here is a picture:

As you can tell, he was thrilled with the lampshade look.

Anyways, last week he had to have yet another mast cell removed, located pretty much in the same spot as before. 

He did well with the surgery and after we brought him home he was too groggy to do much but rest.

Hannah decided he needed a beach hat.

He must have had that had on a good 45 minutes.

Poor thing.

This is what a beach hat looks like on a happy, willing model:

Baxter is doing much better.  Hopefully the tumor is, like last time, nothing to worry about.

Awww...poor dog! But -- the pictures are cute nonetheless. :) Hope your dog is back to normal in no time. :)

That hat looks way better than that cone thingy.

Bliss said...

Aww hugs to Baxter. He reminds me of my old snuggle buddy. hope he is feeling better soon. Those pesky Mast cell tumors are not fun as they have to remove a good piece of it out.

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww....loved how your daughter put Baxter in the hat. (poor dog, maybe ours should hang out and 'torment' their hairy brothers together)

And your 'model'...adorable!

Baxter is a handsome dude! I hope he recovers quickly and that the biopsy results are good.

Your photos always make me smile, Teri!

Awww... poor little guy - I thought it was one of those ice bags - I didn't realize it was a beach hat until you showed it close up - LOL He's adorable!

P.S. Thank you for your kind words on my decor yesterday - I never owned any Easter decorations until the last few years when my wonderful mother-in-law gave me a bunch of them but for some reason, this is the first year I made the time to put them out - ha!
