Testing, Testing, 1, 2, 3

The vet test results came back today and are inconclusive. You're probably wondering what exactly that means. Well yes, you guessed it, MORE TESTS! I'm turning into a pin cushion here what with all the jabbing and poking. I've got poodle legs again AND a shaved neck. I'm going back to the specialist hospital next Thursday so I'll keep you posted. In the meantime my pal Nurse Asta NYC came over with supplies of roast beef and yorkshire puddings and peas and stuff! Mmmmmmmmm!

Hey Jackson,
Well that sounds like good news so far. At least they can't say that you have Cushings. Too bad they have to keep stabbing you though. That's not fun at all. And to shave your pretty hair off, bummer. We're sure Asta's good food will make you feel better, hehehe.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

If mistress finds my book, well her book, we can bring that and read to you and show you the pictures.

Does inconclusive mean could be worse, but could be better?

Jake of Florida said...

Hi Jackson,

We're too macho to be good nurses, but we can sure send you our best wirey woofs that the next round of tests comes back negative.

In the meantime, enjoy all that yummy food Nurse Asta and your other friends have prepared for you.

Lenny said...

You're a tough guy, Jackson. Hang in there! Get better soon!

Your friend, Lenny

Sophie Brador said...

Jackson, Nurse Asta is going to make you fat with all that yummy food, but you definitely deserve it for putting up with all those yucky tests. I hope they are able to figure something out soon. I feel so sad for you having to go through all of that, and especially for having to put up with the hairdos. Maybe you should become a punker dog and just say it's part of your look.


Wiry Axel said...

Thinking of you buddy. You are the toughest dude I know, I know you can get through this....we are praying for you every day and love you.

Ax and Fam

Snowball said...

Hey Jackson, such a wistful look in that picture. I can understand why with all that pincushioning. Tough stuff. Hope they get to the bottom of things soon, so you can just get better.
