White Dog and I chatted with Cindy, our vet's Office Manager, outside at the car while Steve and Quinn went inside. Today our boy could finally have his stitches removed from the papilloma surgery done a few weeks ago. He was very good about not even trying to scratch and the healed results look good. It will, we all agreed, take some time before his luscious white fur is back to its full density there. This caused Michael some distress as he worried that Quinn would not look his best for the Christmas card photo; Steve has assured him that we will be sure to position The Other White Dog so that his hair disfigurement is hidden. Oddly, no one like my idea that we ALL shave irregular patches into our hair and fur so that TOWD not feel different.

Hopefully, now that Quinn is back to normal and White Dog has had her annual checkup with Dr. Julia, we will not be visiting the Office until we drop off their Christmas gift.

OK. Realize I'm trying to make light of this situation here ... Are you implying that my bald legs are a disfigurement? Really? I thought they were just individual expressions. Kind of like a mohawk ... just with a slightly different placement.

Considering all viewpoints, with love,
Miss Fergi

Oh Miss Fergie, you make such a good point! We love Quinn any way he is...and momma wanted us all to shave to match him...but HE is very self-conscious! You, on the other hand, are very confident and secure in your self beauty. Perhaps momma should have tried for a better word than disfigurement, it WAS insensitive!!

Remember. I was just making light. It's fun. It brings out my playfulness (which IS emerging!) I knew you weren't meaning to be insensitive.

Bald is beautiful,

We second what Khyra said.:) There is lots and lots of white fluff in our home. We're so glad Quinn was so good about not licking his stiches. Wow, it's time to start thinking about Christmas already.:)

We think TD and Ciara would be of the same inclination about shaving any of their parts in solidarity, but we do have sympathy for our Phantom. We have tried to photograph his "better" side, but now his ouchie is on one side and his surgery is on the other side:(

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara
