My dear friend


I think I never told you of my good friend, a very very good friend. He is almost eleven years old, very
loyal, good listener and can keep secrets and I love him.
He is a black labrador who never walks on a leash and listens to the name dog.

Recently, with the walk, he pulled his back open to the barbed wire and I noticed a bump on his back. I had never seen before, I do check him regularly for ticks.
We went to the vet and she did a surgery and took away the bump, and sent it to investigate. The surgery went well, but after two days there was blood and pus coming out of the wound. The vet made ​​the wound clean and had to re-attach without anesthesia, it would not work. My dear friend has given no sound, he was very brave!



Now I have to clean the wound five times a day till it is closed, the results of the study was a malignant  tumor which was full of all bacteria, probably from the barbed wire. The wound is healing good now.
I wanted to let you know that I just have little time to blog, I watch regularly some blogs, but it takes so much time to post responses, especially now that you must enter two passwords........  I think it is a bad idea of blogger.

Hope to see you soon with more time

Hoi Marlies! Wat naar dat je hond er zo aan toe is, het arme dier. Het lijkt me zo'n lieverd! Ik hoop dat ie gauw weer wat opknapt, zorg maar goed voor je trouwe viervoeter. Reacties achterlaten kun je altijd nog, toch?
Tja, blogspot maakt het af en toe inderdaad knap lastig om snel te kunnen reageren op berichten, niet fijn: helemaal met je eens! En dat ga ik nu weer uitproberen....of ie het doet met de word-verification ^0^!
Sterkte ermee en liefs, Ilona

marlies said...

* Craftland, Danke dir!

* Ilona, Ik vertroetel hem goed hoor! :D Maar wat is dat met word-verificatie???? Je typt je eigen scheel aan die wachtwoorden, dan moet je ook nog steeds wachten dat hij t geladen heeft, reageren bij anderen kost zoveel tijd, dat heb ik dan niet en dan vind ik het zo vervelend om bij de een wel te reageren en bij de andere niet......

Wishing your dear friend better health soon! :]

Sorry to hear about your good friend - hope dog gets healthy soon.

Greetings
Birgit

P.S.: I switched off the word verification when blogger started this dumb thing - and now it's even worse with the number pics. I wasn't flooded by spams so far... ;O)

Maria Ireland said...

Hi Marlies I hope your dog is better soon. He looks like a very sweet dog. Pets give you so much with their unconditional love and ask so little of us. Take care :)
Hugs Maria

marlies said...

* Otterine, Thank you very much.

* Birgit, I did the same when I started my blog, I hope it is still the same...... I had no spam eather, but you can remove them to puch on the trashbin, right?

marlies said...

* Maria, thank you, he loves me in spite of a bad hair day! :D

Margaret said...

He looks a lovely boy Marlie and so brave, I hope he fully recovers quickly. My dog is around 12 now but still acts like a puppy sometimes, they are great entertainment.

Heel veel sterkte met "het kind"
Het is altijd zo zielig als ze wat hebben, ze snappen er niks van
Liefs Sylvia

Hello, I hope that things will go okay with your dog friend. Lately I've stopped commenting on some blogs for the verification word ... I understand. a big hug and kisses in your heart.

Cris Bottaro said...

Perfect your blog does not have word verification, I was not commenting ... believed that he had ... nice to be able to comment here. Thank you and kisses in your heart.

Flora said...

Dear Marlies, I am so sorry to hear the bad news about your friend ... But I think that with your love and care, he will improve soon, however, will face the illness with the best support possible ...
Even my baby is black, a black cat of 12 years, called Semolina. When she is sick, the whole family is sick with her :-)
Mini lovely hugs to both
