Hello …. :o) …

Our gardens are full of flowers …

violas …

rockery plants …

and tulips …

……………………………………………………………………….

We are being good, playing with our toys …

while Terratoonie is busy …
… scrubbing …

… painting …

… and fixing up guttering …

… It’s a hard life, being a Truffle …

……………………………………………………………………

.. and a special message from Truffle for Terry60 …

Happy Golden Trowel Day to you !!!

Two years on GoY !!!

…. and thank you, Auntie Terry for the hat …

I’m trying to get used to these Italian millinery designs

but, it seems

… size does matter :o)))))) xxxxxxx

12th April 2010 …

Good news….. !!! Conker’s check-up showed no signs of the cancer yet returning. :o)

However, at the vet clinic, Conker’s cheek abscess had a lot more tests under sedation… cost £200 ! He needs to have an operation by a vet experienced in dental surgery… The vet clinic [ where Conker has the cancer treatment ] does not undertake dental work…

………………………………………………………………………………

13th April 2010 … I’m thankful for good friends…

… In order to sort out Conker’s cheek abscess problems, my doggie contacts have directed me to a different veterinary practice.

Conker and I visited there this afternoon, and I couldn’t fault the vet or the premises… sort of old fashioned in the right kind of way, if you know what I mean… :o)

Conker has been prescribed Ceporex antibiotics for three days, and then on Friday, the vet will operate on Conker’s molar abscess. Conker has a lovely set of clean teeth, so it is unusual that an abscess has formed on a molar.

The good news about Friday, is that Conker needs to be at the vet only half an hour before the operation, and I can collect him as soon as he is coming round from the anaesthetic, so no long waits with Conker caged, and away from me, becoming more and more stressed…

So it seems we are getting back on track at last ….

I’ll update this blog on Friday, or at the weekend, after Conker’s operation.

…………………………………………………………………

I’m pleased to say that Conker got through the surgery very well :o)))

Many thanks to everyone for your support.

Much appreciated. xxx

I love this blog Tt, it has everything ...beauty, comedy, industry and pathos. I was scrolling down taking in the beauty of your garden, your hard work and nice pics of your boys and starting to wonder at the blog title, I didn't understand....'size does matter' ?????? Then BAM!!! Truffle in his hat...a touch of genius....really did make me LOL......then the reminder that tomorrow is Conkers check up day...We'll be wagging like mad here and I'll wave my crutches too for the one in ten result:-) Congratulations to Terry too:-))

11 Apr, 2010

 

Thank you Bornagain and Pansypotter for your kind words...

Glad you will be wagging and waving and keeping your fingers crossed...

Must admit I'm much better at catching up with garden jobs than with housework tasks...

"Gardening forever, housework whenever" Lol.

Conker says thanks for your hugs and good wishes. xxx

Truffle says.... I'm lost... please show me the way out of this hat. ;o)

11 Apr, 2010

 

Lol is that hat your handiwork too Terra? couldnt agree with you more when it comes to housework and gardening, its a good job Harry is good at keeping on top of everything indoors LOL

11 Apr, 2010

 

Hi PP... Lol ...
No, that hat was kindly made by the lovely talented Terry60 ..

... and Conker cleans my house with his toy vacuum cleaner ;o)

11 Apr, 2010

11 Apr, 2010

 

Thanks, Pottygardener, Grannysue, J.Bardet, Amy, Holly, Megan, Balcony, Mavis,Whiskas, Ollie, Ginge, Viv, and Hywel...

Conker is likely to have an operation on his face, either tomorrow, or later in the week....

He's just grown back all his fur, and now he'll have shaved face and legs again...but as long as he is cancer free, we can cope with more bald bits. ! xxx

11 Apr, 2010

 

Lovely colours in your garden Terra and it looks a hive of activity, I`m , pleased to see the boys are helping in their own way. Truffle is a really handsome lad even with his hat hiding that cheeky face. Fingers XX all goes well for dear Conker, it seems to have come round so quickly all the lincs pets will be wagging energetically and with you in spirit..
extra big hugs all round, Sue xx..

11 Apr, 2010

 

Thank you, Sue and the Lincspets...

Tomorrow Conker isn't allowed food ..and Truffle has volunteered ... nobly ... to go without breakfast, so that Conker won't have to miss out while watching Truffle eating ...:o) xxx

11 Apr, 2010

 

Oooooh errrrr oooops ..................

I hang my head in shame at the lack of of size judgement - I've never knit for a dog before !!!!! I just assumed his head would be bigger than a baby's - NOW I know - and will rectify toute de suite !!!! Hey it would fit you TT - I bet you'd lok a treat in it !!!!!!!!! Just for the records, did the white bonnet fit, as I think that was a bit smaller ??

Prayers coming over the Alps for tomorrow - St Francis will be with you, so do not fret ....

11 Apr, 2010

 

Hi Terry...
Truffle's bonnet is lovely thank you...I'll have to try it on me too LOL.

Yes, thanks.. the white bonnet fits Conker, but, as with the hat for Truffle, would fit much better with the neck pieces fixed further forward .... I'll send you a more detailed message explaining later this week... I'm hoping I can maybe alter the neck pieces on Conker's hat ? It's very kind of you to make them.. I've only tried the hat on Conker once, and he likes wearing it, but Conker's cheek is tender, so he can wear the hat again when he's feeling better....

Thanks for the prayers from over the Alps... :o) xxx

11 Apr, 2010

 

Oh that was wonderful i loved the pic of Truffle in the hat lol, my husband asked me what i was laughing at!! Good luck for tomorrow, Toffee doing his tail waving (cats don't wag!)

11 Apr, 2010

 

Hi Skilla and Toffee..
Wonderful hat, isn't it ! :o)
Thanks for the waving.....!!!
I'll put a report on here tomorrow, soon after we return from the vet clinic. xxx

:o) xxx

11 Apr, 2010

 

Love the pics of your garden TT....so colourful.......that hat?.....well its something else....worn with such elegance!!
Am thinking about Conker and hope he is not too uncomfortable after his op.....if he needs one of course.....and just when his coat had grown in again......ah well...a small price to pay.....and of course the warmer weather is due very soon.
You take care too....you are very brave as well xxxxx

11 Apr, 2010

 

Tt,I realised afterwards I was on the wrong one,so edited my comment..HaHa,you
must have read the unabridged version..sorry. Glamorous Granny?.Lol.
Confused ,more like :o)) Let me think...who am I posting this to ?Anyone's guess....

11 Apr, 2010

 

Thanks, Alice...
Truffle loves dressing up..Lol.

With Conker, I'm trying to be brave...
It was April last year when the first early signs of Conker's cancer appeared, so, exactly 12 months later, it is amazing to still have him here, eating, playing and enjoying life.... and I hope there is no déjà vu, with a repeat of last springtime ....

yes, bald bits won't matter, as long as Conker is happy and healthy. xxx

11 Apr, 2010

 

I'm sure there won't be........but every day is a bonus isn't it xx

11 Apr, 2010

 

Yes, good comment, Alice...

Good luck today Terra and Conker, will be thinking of you both. You have been busy.......and Truffel ....Looove yoiur hat.

12 Apr, 2010

 

Thanks Sue... How are your gardens ?
My garden tasks got way behind last year....
Conker took priority.... I have a very long list of jobs to tackle this spring and summer... lots of fence painting and maintenance to be done... Let's hope we have good weather for our gardening !

Yes, Truffle LOVES his hat, despite it being a little bit too large for him... Terry60 has made it so nicely... I reckon we can find a way to make it fit him because he likes wearing it so much... gets really excited when he sees it . Lol.... ! :o)

Fingers crossed for Conker. Thank you. xxx

12 Apr, 2010

 

Perhaps some sheering elastic or ribbon threaded through might do the trick. for Truffles hat. I know what you mean about getting behind on garden jobs. My foot kept me out of the garden for to long I’m still catching up!

12 Apr, 2010

 

Yes, good idea about elastic.
Does your foot still slow you down with garden work ?
Let's hope we can all catch up with our garden jobs.
Last week I did get some climbers planted, but have a few more to go in by a North facing fence....

12 Apr, 2010

 

Hope the check up goes well x

12 Apr, 2010

 

Thanks, Jean. I hope you are well...
Conker seems fit in himself... so let's hope the cancer has not returned, and that a small operation will sort out the cheek abscess... xxx

12 Apr, 2010

 

Yes my foot is still a problem I still can’t walk very far and unfortunately this is permanent. Something I am learning to live with. But it won’t get me down I’m a lady of leisure now not working so I have plenty of time to just potter at my own speed SLOW!! I’m getting the garden ready for a birthday party in a couple of week’s time I have all the family coming I hope the weather will be nice.

12 Apr, 2010

 

Good luck with your birthday preparations, Sue.
Not your 21st again ? ;o)
The weather forecast, for this week at least, is dry, so we should all be able to get some garden work done :o)

12 Apr, 2010

 

What are the yellow daisy type flowers in your border,behind Truffle? Are they coreopsis,or is that too early for them...really nice,whatever they are....Good luck

13 Apr, 2010

 

Here's wishing you all a happy, relaxed and peaceful (as much as it can be with Truffle) week. xxx

13 Apr, 2010

 

I`ll be thinking of you and Conker on Friday Terra, it helps so much when you feel happy with the vet practice you are using. I`ve been along the difficult dental work path and we were reffered to an excellent practice where all the staff where really kind and helpful too, it made a bad occasion seem a lot easier. Your garden is looking lovely and I can see you`ve been working hard. The gorgeous Truffle looks smashing in his wooly hat, he looks a real fun loving dog. Take care. :o)

Love and Hugs

Sandra xx

13 Apr, 2010

 

So happy for you Terra, it will make all the difference in the World to have Conker unstressed at his dentists, treated by kind, knowing professionals. it will mean you can be more relaxed too. Tails all a-wagging for Friday:-)

13 Apr, 2010

 

I'm so glad this abscess is going to be sorted out at last TT. Conker has been through such a lot and it's a credit to you that he's come through it so well. It will be nice for you both when this week is over, but you seem to be able to keep a positive mind and that helps so much.
xxxx

13 Apr, 2010

 

Hywel says it all there TT so just to say I will be thinking of you both and I'm sure all will be well for Conker..... Hugs OOOO

13 Apr, 2010

 

Good luck on Friday and good that Conker won't be away from you for long.
Alf and Dolly sending lots of soothing purrs x x
Your garden is gorgeous!

13 Apr, 2010

 

In the words of Dave Allen may your God go with you, do hope all goes well for you on Friday, I am sure it will, and so pleased to know the cancer has cleared up, what a time you have been through, chin up, lovely pics and great blog, as for the punch line .....brill xxxx

Hello TT..Conker and Truffle.....I haven't been aboard here for AGES and often wondered how things were going for you all. Delighted to hear the darling Conker IS one in million...well we all knew that of course!! Seriously though - fingers crossed for Friday...I am sure all will be fine ....especially with the antibiotic cover..not to mention the yogurt...ha ha ...he'll need lots of that when he starts eating again...ouch! Memories of tooth extraction...more ouch!
I will be thinking about you and Honey and Di send big wags and hugs - as ever.
Yours aye Cx

Hello Conker, Aunty Terry here - what more can I say that hasn't already been said? Wags and purrs for Friday from the Italian felines ...

Truffle - please tell your mum to scrap that hat and 'll do another one for you .... we don't really want you bumping into lamposts !!!!!

TT, Enjoy the good news, enjoy your beautiful garden and above all enjoy your time together .... AND RELAX xxxxx

Hi Alz, Honey and Di...
Nice to hear from you ... I hope you are well.... :o)
The vet practice I've chosen is exactly the sort of place and people you would like... I know it.... old fashioned values and older building, but with modern medicines....
Thanks for the wags and hugs. xxx

Hello Janette....
I'm not sure we'll ever catch up, will we ! Lol.
Thanks for checking in on Conker xxx

Hello Auntie Terry...
Truffle and Conker are shocked at the thought of scrapping the hat ! We've been having great fun... a sort of doggie fashion show.. with the hat in different styles, and just by folding the top part, and folding the bobble further forward, it is really stylish and fits well.... on both dogs... we'll take pics some time.... It is definitely the new look for 2010.. Lol.

Thanks for the wags and purrs from the pussy cats in Rome.... xxx

Thanks to everyone for your good wishes for Conker's op. on Friday.

14 Apr, 2010

 

Great news for you all...Word has certainly spread about Conker on here,how lovely that he will be all sorted on Friday....you will be on cloud nine when its all over and done with,and he can get back to normal again...Will be thinking about you...xxx

14 Apr, 2010

 

I am just catching up with message from the last couple of weeks.
So glad Conker is cancer free. Hope the dental treatment is a dawdle and that he makes a good and quick recovery

14 Apr, 2010

 

Hi Rachelsmum and Bloomer..
Thanks for looking in on Conker. I've just done all the fortnightly treatments which I give to my dogs... toenails clipped, feet tidied, teeth cleaned and anal glands emptied ! ....so Conker is as clean and groomed as possible, ready for his operation on Friday ! :o)

We will be so relieved to have a break from vet visits... I guess Conker might need a check-up after the dental work, but his next cancer check, barring any problems, need not be till autumn ! xxx

14 Apr, 2010

 

glad to hear the great news about conker cancer being gone, its to bad he has to have another operation, conker is doing really well with all the trips to the vets

14 Apr, 2010

 

Hello TT. So glad it's good news. I'll make sure my trio are wagging on Friday. Would you like a 6 month old Lurcher? He's very good.....knows all the commands........just refuses to obey them!!!! xx

14 Apr, 2010

 

Hi Phil.... Thanks...
Are you referring to the wonderful Murphy ?
Sounds like he uses the same rulebook as Truffle. Lol.

Never mind....
by the time Murphy is 12 ... years, that is, ha ha ... he'll be more obedient. Lol. LOL. LOL..

Thanks for the triple wagging on Friday.. :o) xxx

14 Apr, 2010

 

Hello Pondlady... How are you ?
Thanks for reading the lastest about Conker...
He's going to be VERY brave on Friday.... and then, hopefully, we can all relax a bit at the weekend... :o) xxx

Hi, TT! Good luck to Conker for Friday! I'm sure everything wil be OK...And then you all will be able to enjoy your beautiful spring garden! xxxx

14 Apr, 2010

 

I think saying Murphy will be well behaved by the time he is 12 is being very optimistic!!! Chloe is coming up 17 and still goes her own sweet way :) Sometimes I don't think she is as deaf as she makes out!

So pleased to read your update, TT. The new Vet sounds excellent and it will be great to have that abscess sorted out and without a long trip, and even longer waiting, before you can get home again. Will be thinking of you on Friday and will await your news. Take care.

14 Apr, 2010

 

Hi Uma...
Thanks...... my gardens will seem prettier when Conker is back home after his operation :o)

Hello Gee....
Lovely Chloe.... she is a GOOD GIRL.... Lol.

Yes, I felt comfortable at the different vets.... and nice that it isn't very many miles away.... Thank you for thinking of Conker... xxx

14 Apr, 2010

 

Your flowers are stunning, your repairs, etc., amazing, your doggies just beautiful, Tt. Great news re the big "C", and glad to read that the abscess is to be treated so soon. We'll keep wagging here for you all for Friday. XXX

14 Apr, 2010

 

Thanks, David...
I hope you are well... no sea sickness ? ;o)

I'm starting to get very busy with garden projects which had to be put on hold last year, so I'm not quite so often on GoY, but determined to keep up as much as possible with photos and blogs :o) I've been digging holes today and filling them with stones for drainage ! Lol...

Yes, good news from the vet clinic... nice to think Conker won't need another check-up for cancer for some months... and all set for his operation on Friday.
Thanks for the wags.... :o) xxx

14 Apr, 2010

 

This wonderful news, TT! I'm so glad for you both that he won't have to go for another checkup till the autumn! :-) I really hope the abscess will be sorted out once & for all during the op on Friday.

15 Apr, 2010

 

Great news about Conker TT! Hope all goes well on Friday. Your plants and animals are lovely and I am desperate to own a hat like that.....:o)

15 Apr, 2010

 

Hi Balcony and Dylandog...
Thank you. yes... good news that Conker can go a number of months without a cancer check at the vet clinic ...
We've been enjoying my sunny gardens today....
I worked while Conker relaxed, so he's all ready for his operation tomorrow...
I hope you both had sunny weather too...

... and Truffle says he has copyright on that hat design...Lol. :o)

15 Apr, 2010

 

TT just to let you know my thought will be with you and Conker tomorrow, hope all goes well.
Lots of hugs from me and Smokey xx

15 Apr, 2010

 

Thank you Clarice and Smokey...
I'm very edgy here... at least it is a shorter journey to the vet for the dental operation, than when we travel all the way to the vet clinic... xxx

15 Apr, 2010

 

Will check on you both tomorrow keep your chin up, xxx

15 Apr, 2010
