Murphy's Dogtur Visit

Today I went to see Dr. Eddy about my thingie.  Mom thought it might be a bit bigger (it's hard to measure) so she said we better have him look at it.  The other dogtur I saw in February was at the Air Force Base and they don't do serious stuff like thingie diagnosis so we went to see the highly skilled Dr. Eddy.  He knows all about thingies!

As you can see Stanley came for moral support.  However, it turned out Stanley was VERY nervous.  His bottom jaw was even quivering but he does NOT want Jessie to know about that.

Dr. Eddy was VERY impressed that I followed directions and rolled over so he could see my thingie. He thought he might have to wrestle me to see it but mom said I would follow directions so he can easily examine it and she was right.  I just rolled over and let him see it, even when he decided to do a biopsy.  Mom said it was obvious that me and Stanley were PSU graduates and she said she was proud I was such a good boy.

Dr. Eddy said I was the bravest boy ever!  Then he left the room to look at cells.  Stanley was afraid we were going to be put in a jail cell.  Then Dr. Eddy came back and started calling out BINGO.  He said B9!  Mom and dad were very happy.  Dr. Eddy said as long as my thingie stayed small (he said it was 5-7mm) it was OK to leave it alone.  Everyone at our house is really happy.

Murphy & Stanley


  1. OMD, Stanley, you were SO brave AND sensitive with your brother!!! I'm so proud of you!! I love a man who's not afraid to show his sensitive side.

    And yay Murphy for being brave and the B9 result too!!!


  2. Glad the thingie was B9! How nice to have a brother who will go alone with you for moral support, especially if he was scared.

  3. We're glad you had it checked out! You were so brave and good. Hope you get a treat. Love the B9 for the K9...bwahaahaa!

  4. Oh, that's such good news!!!!! B9 is the BEST bingo number there is!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Murphy we are twerking like wild gals here in NC...
    I'm so glad to hear Dr. Eddy has a degree in Thingie Diagnosis. It is probably more impawtant than having a Degree in Feline Chemistry, you know we are a mysterious species. OMCs I hope his Thingie needle was soft tipped.

  20. I'm so glad that you got good news... your dr. eddie is a super-vet... and no one ever lands in a jail cell... I'm sure... maybe the thingy when it has to go once, but we hope it will be well bee-hived and you can leave it alone...

  21. Always good to win at Bingo and especially the B9-version! Congratulations.

  22. We are so glad the thingy can be left alone and that it isn't serious. And you really are a good boy, it took Mom and 3 vet technicians to hold Fenris down, so they could shave his paw and treat his Acral Lick Granuloma.

  23. Good News Yipeeeeeeeee.
    Happy Crazy Love :)

  24. We're so glad it was not anything bad. We cocker spaniels know all about lumps and bumps! The older we get, the more lumps and bumps we get. 99% of the time, they're benign. But it's good to get it checked out.

  25. You were so brave! Dogturs scare me bad!

    Puppy Growls,

  26. Wonderful news, Murphy!!! Please tell Stanley he is a great brother
    for being supportive even though he was scared.
    ~ Belle for the rest of the pups and kitties.

  27. Great news, Murphy! You are healthy and BRAVE!

  28. Your soooo brave.. So glad it was B9


  29. We are soo very glad you're thingy is B9. It's no fun going to the dogtors. Sadly I had to go see the dogtor this week 2. Maybe we can both skip a few months before we have to go again.
