Poor Sam

Well, here we go again. We brought Sam to the vet this morning to investigate several lumps that have appeared recently. Dr. Kerne poked and prodded, and decided that while worrisome, considering Sam's history, they weren't anything too serious. Then we showed her a different lump on his leg and she decided they were more worrisome than originally thought. Sam is now scheduled for surgery next Thursday to have all the lumps removed.

Despite his Mom's worries, Sam stays happy.


Even though he's now sporting a few bald patches.

  1. Oh, why do they have to shave your dignity? Well, it sure doesn't seem to bother Sam, does it?

    Prayers and Paws are with him!

  9. Ugh, no more lumps - you know how we feel about lumps here. Paws crossed they are harmless and only cause the misery of shaved areas. Sam, Phantom sends you his sympathy in advance if you have to wear the dreaded cone. Paws crossed the news is good. We all know the power of the paw.

  37. Christine (AKA Sam's Mom) I was reading the comment you left on my "Dutchess of Deerfield" blog and was so moved by it! Is your Dad still with us? I ask because I am currently working on a book that his story would fit perfectly into. I would love to get an oral history from him, or your Mom or you or someone close to him that knew the story really well....
