Very Late Update

Hello, Everyone! I'm sorry for the lack of activity on our blog lately - Sam and Monty's Grandma is in the hospital, and we've been rather distracted.

Aaron did mention that I should post an update on Sam. We've had great news! All of the tumors have come back as benign, which was a great relief to us.

Sam got his stitches removed last Saturday, but decided to do a little self-surgery and managed to re-open one of the sites. We had to bring him in for more stitches.

We do think this was all part of Sam's master plan, though. We had mentioned the word "bath", and you know Sam, he will do his best to avoid one!


  1. Sorry to hear grandma is ill, happy to hear Sam is not!

  2. We are happy that handsome Sam is out of danger. Sad about Grandma too. Hope she will be all right.

  3. It's good to hear Sam's ok; sorry to hear about Grandma.

  4. We are very sorry to hear about grandma being in the hospital. We are extremely happy about Sam being fine though!! That is wonderful news! Lots of love, Holly and mom

  5. Sam, we're so glad to hear that you've gotten good news -- but find another way to stay out of the tub!

    We have our paws crossed for your grandma!
