Yes, we are early with our Tocktober Tocks...but we don't post on here we are a wee bit early, OK?? Righto, OK!

First a rare glimpse of Angel Minko and Pipo showing off their tocks together!

Double Tocks!!


While these are not truly selfies, we are posting them in the weekly Sunday Selfies, a fun blog hop hosted each week by The Kitties Blue. They do this faithfully each week and we appreciate it so much and all the hard work they do to get it up and running each and every week. Wow! Thanks so much:)

See all the selfies by clicking here.


Meanwhile...pawppy continues to do battle with the issue of his spine, with pain, tingling and numbness  in his lower back and leg...he needs a cane to get around, and sometimes his leg just gives out underneath him...he did fall the other night. Yikes,. that was scary.

He has had xrays, MRI and soon a CAT scan...hey, I , Pipo,, could have done that! MOL!

And he saw a specialist in spinal issues...who felt the trouble was so bad with nerve entrapment, and arthritic vertebrae, that he felt strongly to do a fusion of the affected vertebrae, to stabilize them and decompress the nerve to lessen the pain and numbness, hopefully to prevent permanent damage. So...that will be done on Nov 4th...with a 12 week recovery time...oh my, that will be hard for him, to be laid up that long...but Petcretary has quite a bit of time off from the day of surgery  for about 10 days, and then here and there afterwards. We may ask one of the unfurbros to come stay here since the one always telecommutes and the other does too now due to the covid mess we are still in. That will give our peeps more peace of mind knowing someone will be here to help as needed.

Please keep us in your prayers and thoughts, we may be AWOL for a while after the surgery is done...

See ya'll next time!
