    I'm Just Saying, The Dog Thread Part Deux

    Do not knock on Death's door. Ring the bell and run. He hates that.

    For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. Romans 1:16

    Hi all. My little foster dog had surgery yesterday to remove 12(!!!!) masses/tumors. He looks like a little Frankenstein dog. He was set to be euthanized at noon on New Year's Eve at a kill-shelter in northern FL but the staff there couldn't bear to do it, made some phone calls and a woman from a rescue local to me made the several hour trip to grab him and spirit him away. Please send prayers/positive thoughts to this little guy who cheated death by 30 minutes & hopefully has many more years of life in front of him. If the tumors are benign, then when he is healed up he will be up for adoption to a forever home. If he does have cancer then he will stay with me as a "permanent foster" for the rest of his days. He is a sweet little dog who deserves the best we can give him.

    PS The second picture only shows three of the surgical sites. He even had a tumor removed from his tail

    Kudos to you for saving him. I hope he gets better soon!

    Quick update on my little foster dog. He is healing up beautifully and not showing any discomfort! I should hear next week about the results of the biopsies. Keep your fingers crossed!

    PS Last Saturday I spoke to the woman who got him to our rescue. His story is even more amazing than I first understood. It turns out that she was the second leg of his transport. The first transport brought him south but dropped him off at the WRONG SHELTER! Instead of coming to us in Palm Harbor (FL) he was mistakenly brought to a kill-shelter in Tampa. He was now on THEIR list to be euthanized on New Year's Day! Luckily he was tracked down and escaped death once again. I swear this dog has a guardian angel that works over-time

    Tomorrow my little foster dog is going to be on the Home Shopping Network. They are selling some kind of dog shampoo. How weird is that. He will be up for adoption on Saturday. I hope I do okay with that. I'm a little concerned that I will burst into tears and follow the new owner out into the parking lot

    That is awesome! I'm sure people will be going ape-shit to adopt him! That's good though, you'll be able to pick the very best forever home for him.

    My female dog just attacked my male dog. She has never done this before. She will snap at him when he sniffs her rear but nothing like this. She had been acting strange all evening before she did this. She did not hurt him, husband broke it up but I wonder what is wrong. Maybe she just does not feel good.

    Poodle blown across street by electric shock after cocking his leg against lamp post

    Looks a bit like my little doggie Max.

    Hope his doodle wasn't fried, we all need a nightlife.

    This is a cute site.
    http://www.dirtdoctor.com/Dog-Its-Me...ure_vq5196.htm

    My absolute favorite of all:

    Dear God: Here is a list of just some of the things I must remember to be a good dog:

    I will not eat the cat's food before he eats it or after he throws it up.
    I will not roll on dead seagulls, fish, crabs, etc., just because I like the way they smell.
    The litter box is not a cookie jar.
    The sofa is not a face towel.
    The garbage collector is not stealing our stuff.
    I will not play tug-of-war with Dad's underwear when he's on the toilet.
    Sticking my nose into someone's crotch is an unacceptable way of saying hello.
    I don't need to suddenly stand straight up when I'm under the coffee table.
    I must shake the rainwater out of my fur before entering the house — not after.
    I will not come in from outside and immediately drag my butt across the carpet.
    I will not sit in the middle of the living room and lick my crotch.
    The cat is not a squeaky toy, so when I play with him and he makes that noise, it's usually not a good thing.
