Pickle, a pip of a pup

Meet Pickle the Pocket Jack Russell. She's sort of related to Molly the Irish Terrier as she lives with Molly's owner's close family. Does that mean that she's Molly's niece? Or third cousin twice removed or something?

Now, I've not met Pickle in person but I've heard a whole lot about her from Molly. Poor Pickle has a portosystemic shunt which means that she has abnormal liver function. She is having surgery tomorrow at a top notch specialist veterinary hospital so we know she'll be well looked after. Pickle doesn't have a blog but I know that she reads mine when she's not getting into mischief so I'm hoping that you'll leave some pawsitive comments for her. We're all rooting for you, little Pickle!

Dear Pickle,

My sisters and I do wish you the best in your surgery tomorrow. We will all be pawing for you and know you will pull through in full terrier fashion to have the best.

Pickle has my sympathies, cos I have an abnormal liver function too, and I am quite bewildered cos I dont drink beer or wine, unlike my owners!

But here is my pawsitive comment for poor Pickle, get well soon Pickle darling!

love and healing licks, Marvin xxx

Pawsitive vibes coming to Pickle....we'll both pulling for her!!
And hugs to you Jackson...for thinking of another doggie when ur not feeling so hot urself.
Lacie is coming over as soon as she's done partying in Disney.

Um, Jackson...we may be suing Seymour for defamation of our character....Have you seen the despicable pix he published on our blog? So Lac and I were a tad fatigued and got a little mixed up. I figured it out as soon as I felt the breeze...but not before we were posted for posterity. I am deeply humiliated. Beyond barks.
