Oh Happy Day

I'm relieved the vet visit is done with. All good except for a small lump on my leg. The vet said nothing to worry about as it could be just fatty tissue. LS says she'll monitor it and arrange for a biopsy later. Hmm...I sure hope it's just fatty tissue.

Oh yes, the vet said I could do with more supplements now that I'm turning 8 and getting on with age... Me old? I bet I could show her what a good shape I'm still in by dodging her or sprinting off anytime at the clinic. If not for the fact that LS had me on a leash.

On another happy note, we would like to thank Sweepy for the lovely gift we've received a week ago. Lorenza and I won the contest by Sweepy last Christmas. It's a beautiful set of calendar specially designed by Sweepy. How artistic of Sweepy!

A package for me?

What a pretty packaging!

Hey good looking!

Look at these!
Each individually designed!

Now I can keep track of my days with this calendar,
since the vet said I'm getting old.

Thank you so much, Sweepy!

Denise said...

Praying for you happy, I do not think you are old. I love you, and LS.

Bobby said...

I am glad the teeth are okay, I hope your fatty lump is just that, sure it will be. You are not old, just a pup compared to me. Your calendar looks great well done winning it.

Who are they calling old! Mom says that we Terriers are just beginning to calm down at 8! We have the best years ahead of us, Happy!
What an awesome calendar!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Oh Happy, you're not old! You're in the prime of your life and don't look a day over 2! Congrats on winning Sweepy's contest. His keepers sure are artistic. Thank you for visiting me during this very sad time for my family. We miss Ziggy so much and are grateful for every minute we had with the big furry guy. Have a great day!

what a great gift! Glad vet went well. Im sure its just some fatty tissue

Peggy said...

Blessings LS and Happy!!!

WOO HOO!!! You made it! So glad it went well and it's over for you! See it wasn't all that bad.

And how adorable are these photos and that lovely calendar! Congrats!
or it was a gift, right...well it's really nice with a friend on each page for each month.

But Happy, I know you're not getting old...so it's gotta be fatty tissue from sitting on it.

You are so creative and spunky both of you in how you share your tale or tail(whichever the case).

I remember a song "Ohh Happy Day!"
So how about you...now that might make your age a bit more

8 is not old! Well, it's 8 times as old as I am, but it's still not old!

My Pops on the other hand... he's really old. Over 200 dog years. He's a relic.


Lorenza said...

Do you think you are old, Happy??
Old is my mom... but I will not tell how old is she! Haaa!
Glad you are ok! I am sure that lump is just a fatty thing! Paws crossed!
Congratulations! Your calendar is pawesome!

Go on...you're never eight Happy! You look like a pretty young Pup. Glad you vet visit wasn't horrid and I've got all paws tightly crossed for the tissue.

Wagging to seeing you enjoying your kind presents!

Wiry love Eric xx

Sweepy said...

Woof, Happy, 8 is not old. I'm turning 8 too in March. Hey, if I'm old, then my big black bro Bogart is ancient. And my late Mumsy Pica had me when she was 11.

I'm glad you got my calendar before 2010 expires and before my design gets too way old! Btw, the wooden clip that goes with the calendar is supposed to clip the current month.

Mack said...

That's such a sweet pic of you Happy, lying next to your beloved calendar!

And 8 is not old! Especially for such a little thing as yourself!

Our Lilly is 17 and as fiesty as ever!

Happy, I'm so glad to hear the vet visit went well. Did you know that we humans get quite anxious when we take you guys to the vet? Well, we do. So look after LS each time you come back home.

LS, I see you've got the comment about the big dog blogging competition. I got it too, and I decided to click it away, but I think I might have clicked away a comment by you with it. Was it you who commented on Penny running in the flyball and going for a wander around the arena?

If it was you, I apologise for the loss of your comment. I LOVE comments, so I would never intentionally click one away, lol.


Hi Happy,

What a lovely gift from Sweepy. Mommy loves calenders. She said one day she is gonna make one with nothing but pics of me.

You sure sure look good for and old dog but you are not an old dog you are4 still a "spring chicken".


Vivian said...

My Trinket has lumps on his body too, and the vet said they are all fatty issue. She did needle biopsy, which was very simple and no pain at all. For someone turning 15 in couple of days, Happy is such a youngster! Enjoy your days!

Huskee and Hershey said...

Happy, you are only 8 years YOUNG!! (and I am 10 years young..)

Glad to hear that the lump was just fatty deposits.. BUT it does NOT mean that you are fat ok.. don't let LS convince you otherwise!

More Than Conquerors said...

The calendars are so nice, Happy. No, you are definitely not old! You are still so young and so sweet :) Have a blessed week!


The Aphasia Decoder.... said...

Me's glad you have a good vet but he is wrong about you being old. Eight is not old! You bite him next time he says that.


Lacy said...

Hi Happy - I'm glad the dreaded vet visit is over! I have lots of "fatty lumps" all over my body - the vet said it's part of "getting old" - humph!
