More Paw Power


Hey pals, Barksdale and Stringer here. Are you ready for some good news? Yes, that's right, Jackson's surgery went well; the surgeon removed the tumour and the back lobe of his left lung. We're not out of the woods yet as he's still in intensive care and the next few hours are critical. But we're sooooooooo relieved that the surgery is over that we are doing a jig here, as our pal Axel would say...

We know how hard you have all been working on sending us positive thoughts. Please don't stop now as we won't be happy until he's back here where he belongs being his usual grumpy self. All being well he'll be allowed home on Friday which is also his birthday!

All power to the paw!

Much love and many healing licks.
