Happy Halloween (and Some Not so Happy Things with Fry)

We have an apple TV with a link to our cloud and the screen saver runs family pictures.   I was watching many pictures of Tubby and Norbert on previous Halloweens scroll buy, pictures like this one.

I was really missing boys but it was such fun to take pictures of our current babies this Halloween weekend.

They really enjoyed this years pumpkin

We  put cat treats in the pumpkin as well, but Spot was the only one of the four cats that was interested.

However, I do have some not so good news.  On Saturday we discovered a small hard lump on Fry's lower muzzle near his bottom lip.  We went to the vet but could not see our regular vet.  We had to see a vet I don't particularly like, perhaps through no fault of her own she diagnosed Norbert's nasal cancer so I may have a bias against her.  Anyway, she thought Fry's lump was suggestive of a mast cell tumor a type of cancer common in pugs.  Tubby had one, but when he was 9  and Fry is only 2!  She did a fine needle aspiration and we get the result back Monday and I am already making an appointment with  my favorite vet.    If it's cancerous he will require surgery with wide margins which might be tricky on his face.  The good news is we have excellent insurance, Pet's Best, so we can get him the best care.   Still, we could really use some positive thoughts. 


  1. Sending you lots of POTP Fry.
    I will have all my paws crossed for good news on Monday

  8. Sending POTP for Fry, poor baby and poor you to have such worries when he's so young.
    You really do Halloween right for your fur babies! Happy Halloween!

  9. Oh, poor Fry and poor you! That must be so worrying. Thinking of you and sending you positive vibes all the way from Belgium xxxx

  10. Happy Halloween!
    Sorry to hear about Fry. I'm surprised they don't look at the fine needle aspirations on the spot. Our vet looks at them in house and only has to send stuff out if they look suspicious. We're sending good vibes...... <3

    I'm so sorry to hear about Fry. I hope it's not cancer...sending lot of positive thoughts. xo

  12. Cats have no sense of occasion. Love the Halloween photos.

    Now, we're sending our best POTP and healing vibes for Fry. We hope it is nothing to worry about.

  13. Halloween always looks like so much fun at your house! I love all the cute sweaters and hats. I'm so to hear about Fry - sending all good pug juju his way!
