evening walk

It's pretty hot today, so we saved our walk for the evening and kept it short. Now, to a human, the sight of this messy lane way is rather unpleasant, but to a dog...




lovely smells all over the place - hamburger wrappers,  soft drink containers, cooked chicken scents, and who knows what else. Only Penny knows.

And there was something worth rolling in. Which is a bit of a pity since Penny was clipped and groomed yesterday, a rare occurrence.


We're off to the vet tomorrow, to check up on the many lumps and bumps Penny has, to measure and list them, so we can know if they grow large or change in any way. It seemed like a good time to have her clipped, so we can find them all.

We love all of the trash that we find along our walkie that peeps toss out the windows of their cars. You never know if it might be a hamburger or fries or a donut or fruit! We always need to check it out!
Good luck at the vet's tomorrow, Penny!

Thanks, Mitch and Molly. It was a good idea to list them all, I guess. Here's hoping they stay small and harmless.

Good luck, Penny! My, she does look very fine freshly clipped....keeping the very best thoughts possible for both of you.

Thanks, curator. It's been a week now and she still smells fresh!

I hope both of you are still doing well! I was sending good thoughts to Penny. (Curator)

Thanks, curator. Yes, Penny is doing well. The lumps are almost certainly lipomas and we're monitoring their size. Me? Well, I'm pretty well too, lol. Lovely to hear from you.

Penny looks very pretty!
All the best with the vet and the monitoring of the lumps. Maybe the rolling in smell was a nice present for him?
~lickies, Ludo!
