Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here. Well you might be wondering how Walter’s surgery went yesterday. The truth is it didn’t happen.

This butterfly has quite a lot of snow on her back

On Monday the weather peeps were telling us that we were getting a big storm on Tuesday that would make travel difficult to the vet (remember it is a 1 ½ hour drive from our house). Our mom made the decision to cancel the appointment for safety sake. It has been rescheduled for Wednesday, November 27th.

Instead of having surgery I got to do lots of playing in the snow

Dad made lots of snowballs for us to retrieve

We had about 15+ inches of snow in the past couple of days (this broke records for snow fall amount and low temperatures). It was light and fluffy but packed well for snowballs.

I still have all my teeth.
Don’t you dare chomp them on me.

I love sticking my head in the snow

We sure had a great time playing in the snow

The snow won’t last for long as the temps are supposed to get above freezing during the next week.

We’re sorry we haven’t been around much this past week. Our mom had family visiting and got a little behind in commenting on our friends blogs but she promised to get caught up soon.

Happy Halloween everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here.

We’ve enjoyed being outside in the nice fall weather. 

Today we are joining the LLB Gang for their No Tricks, Just Treats for Shelters blog hop. Sadly the rescue group that we both came from no longer is in business so we can’t help them any more but since Millie was rescued from Rochester Animal Services we decided to help them out.

What are these leaves doing on me?
They look great against your furs Millie.

There is something that is so easy for everyone to do if you ever shop at Amazon.com that can help your favorite charity.

You can choose from over one million charities to support. Just make sure when you are ready to start shopping you start at smile.amazon.com. We made sure that our mom has designated the Verona Street Animal Society as our Amazon Smile charity. They are a non-profit that raises needed funds for the city shelter where Millie came from.

We must be raising lots of money based on how many Amazon boxes come to our house.

You should check to see if your favorite charity is supported by Amazon Smile and sign up. There is no additional cost to you to do so.

We are joining the LLB Gang for their blog hop and Comment-a-Thon. They are donating money to three worthy pet charities. For every blog that joins their hop they are donating $1 and for every comment they are donating 50 cents. Help them out by visiting and leaving a comment even if you don’t join the blog hop.

Hi everyone! It’s Walter here. Last week we had a great stretch of nice weather and we made sure to get out and enjoy it. Mom was there to catch some of the fun we were having.

I don’t know why this fly wanted to go for a ride on my head.

There is more mischief going on around here too. As you all know I had a lump removed from my mouth a couple of weeks ago. I’m all healed and feeling great now. We got the report from the pathologist this weekend and it isn’t all bad news but it isn’t great news either.

Mom says my portrait might change a little in about a month.

The good news is that the lump isn’t any type of aggressive or metastasizing cancer. What I do have is an Ameloblastic fibroma. These typically are locally invasive and often regrow in the same area. Because of that I’m being referred to an Animal Dental Specialist. The closest one to us is about an hour and a half drive away near Syracuse, NY.

According to my mom I already have an appointment for November 12th where it is expected that I will see the doctor in the morning and then have surgery that same day. The good news is that I only have to make one trip to that doctor. They will probably remove the two teeth that were closest to the lump and a small part of palate next to those teeth. I will be able to go home later that day. It’s going to be a long day for my mom who will have to hang out somewhere to wait until I’m ready to go home.

The bottom line is that I still need your crossed paws and pawrayers so keep the POTP coming.

I’m blowing raspberries at the pathology report.

Millie wanted to get in on the mischief today and has an opinion on my upcoming surgery as you can see above. I’m sure she is just glad it isn’t her.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie and Walter here. Today is a day we both have something to be thankful for.

I remember my first day on this patio.

That’s right, today is my Gotcha Day! I wasn’t sure about my new home at first but after a little while I settled down and was happy to be here.

I love my forever home.

It’s been seven years since I first came to my forever home but it seems like it was yesterday. There is something else that I’m thankful happened seven years ago today too (well, really it is an approximation).

I can’t believe I’m 7 years young!

We don’t really know when my birthday is but it is close to today so we figured it would be fun to celebrate our special days together.

I’m looking forward to my next seven years.

So far we don’t have any news from the vet about my biopsy but we are hopeful that I will have another 7 years to come. We will let you know as soon as we have any news but in the mean time I could use all the POTP you could offer.

We want to thank our friends Dalton, Benji & Pipo and their Petcretary for these great cards they sent us.

We are joining Brian for the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

Hi everyone! It’s Walter here.

Let’s check out the flowers and fall colors

As you can see I’m doing quite well and I have all of my Blogville friends to thank for helping me recover so quickly. We don’t have any test results back yet but I feel good as new and I’m told my breath is super fresh now. Enough of that, let’s get to the flowers in our yard.

Hydrangea showing its fall colors

Another pink hydrangea

Some of our Stella D’Oro have started blooming again

The Turtlehead flower is one of the latest bloomers we have in our yard

The insects appreciate having a late flowering perennial in the garden

A tiny spider is enjoying this Eupatorium
(click on the image to make it big if you can’t see the spider)

Lastly let’s see how some of the shrubs have changed so far.

The spirea leaves are starting to turn red

The Callicarpa berries are really starting to turn their beautiful purple color

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the flowers and fall colors we have in our yard.

Hi everyone. It’s Walter here.

The leaves are starting to fall around here.

We’ve been enjoying some great fall weather around here lately. Some days it feels like summer and the next it is more fall like.

I need a little help from my friends

That’s right everyone I need a little help. You see about a week ago dad discovered that I have a growth in my mouth right behind my upper right canine. Last week I took a trip (or two) to the vet and it was determined that it must come out.

Today I’m taking it easy

On Tuesday I’ll be going in to have the lump removed and while they are in there they will give my teeth a good cleaning.

I hope they don’t mess up my smile

The best case scenario is they only have to remove the lump and maybe a couple of teeth and nothing else will have to be done. The worst case scenario might happen after they take a closer look at what is removed and I don’t really want to talk about what might happen after that. Unfortunately these types of growths are common in boxers and I’m half boxer. The good news is that the vet doing my surgery is a long time boxer owner and has done this type of surgery many times.

The bottom line is I could use all the Power of the Paw you could offer this coming Tuesday. I’ll make sure to have Millie give you an update after she hears from the vet.

Hi everyone. It’s Millie & Walter here. We can’t believe mom finally let us post something instead of her bird and butterfly pictures. This is what we were doing while mom was taking even more butterfly pictures.

I think watching butterflies is boring

It’s fun to walk next to the flowers where the butterflies are and watch them scatter. BOL!
