Whew this is good news indeed!  A beauty mark for our beautiful Megastar of course!  Now girls no more surprises!  Moms job is taking her to America where she needs to make some $’s to buy you yummy treats and meat pies.  I’m sure she’ll have a great celebration supper when she gets back home to you girls.  So what do ya say think you can “share” her with us for just a few days?  See you soon Clare!

Hey Megstar! I had a cyst once beside my ear. I asked the doctor what it was, she touched it and said it was a cyst and not be concerned. Two days later it was gone. The healing power of touch…

Do not despair if it suddenly disappears –  you’ll still be beautiful.

So glad that Clare is relieved. How is Elsie Pie managing all the drama?

Yay for Cysts.  Like I said just went through this 2x with Snickers and once with Bosch.  Snickers had one removed because it started to grow and we didn’t want it to burst (on the back hard enough to have it removed with closing it there).   The other was on her front leg inside but it went away on its on.  I consulted our holistic vet and changed her food and took her off all the extra salmon oils & vitamins that (i still give a little every few days.)

YaY for B9 and can’t wait to have you relax and enjoy yourself now

Aw, thank you, Michelle. I’m so excited to meet everyone.

That’s interesting. I never thought about that. Meg takes high dose fish oil for her arthritis. I didn’t realise there could be a connection. Will look into it.

Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

Geez, Meg! I stop checking in for a few days and look what you do! Scare the pants (bloomers?) off of all of us! So glad it was a nothing.

I too just want to cuddle up with the cutest of cutest Elsie Pie! Maybe not if she’s looking at me like that though – her stink eye is a prize-winner. 

Boy howdy, Clare are you in trouble living with those two – you don’t stand a chance. But I’m so excited to meet you! in just a few days now!!
