Actually, I prefer the proper medical term, lipoma...

Yay, the thing on my tail has been confirmed as a fatty lump. Actually I prefer the proper medical term, lipoma. Somehow sounds more dignified, don't you think? Anyway, it's going to stay there unless it gets any bigger or explodes (unlikely!).

Some of you may have noticed that I haven't been blogging much recently. This is simply not acceptable so I decided to teach J1, my typist, a lesson. Last week I attacked her slippers while she was out gallivanting at work. I don't quite know what came over me because I've NEVER done anything like this before. They didn't really taste too good so I only went for the juicy rubbery bits which I then carefully vomited up later on their bedroom floor.

Here I am using one of the slippers as a headrest

As you can see, I think my ploy worked because here I am blogging again. Do you think she's learnt her lesson, or shall I go for her new suede boots next?

Well I hope J1's learnt a valuable lesson J. We miss you matie. We're so glad the lump on your tail is nothing to worry about

I think you should continue to do things that is out of their expectation to make it worth for J1 to help you type it onto your blog. hee...

Hope that you are feeling well.

Hi, Jackson...

Very creative...Looks like it worked...

I'm gonna find a couple of my Mom's shoes & keep them handy just in case...

I'm sooo happy your tail thing turned out OK...

Abby xxxooo

Ooooooh great idea. Our servant has been totally unsatisfactory lately. She lost one of us and has been just a leaky slobbery useless mess.
Still there remain eight of us, and we should be able to put your inspiration to good use.

trying to wag, we are the remaining whippets

Gus said...

Wow...Just like mine, only in a different place. A small bit of "substantial" just migrated to a new colony! So glad

Sometimes drastikh measures are khwite khalled fur!

Good job!

Glad to see you have the lipoma issue wagged out!


Sophie Brador said...

Jax, I'm the proud owner of a lipoma too! Good work on those slippers.


Marvin said...

oooooooh I hope your tail has not exploded yet, but let me know when it does, as I would like to see the photos!

Slippers are vile, but I am glad you vomited them, just to show who is boss.

I am a Master of Vomit, apparently.

So if you need any more tips, I am at your service.

Also back blogging again, I threatened my J, with Vomit Everywhere or a Dog Blog, my charm won hands down!

Speakeroonie soon, Jackson,

Well done on the good work.

Love and licks, Marvin xxxxxxxxx

Dewey Dewster said...

Excellent days work Jackson.

You do look exceeding comfy resting on the slipper.

We are very pleased to hear your little lump is a lipoma and nothing to worry about.

Have a good week.

Kirby said...

What is with the parents and the lack of blogging assistance lately? I'm going to have to try your methods to get my Mom to be mre of a consistant blogger.

I'm happy your tail ailment is just a fatty lump or lipoma. My Uncle Spencer has a bunch of those on him, and he is doing great at 13! I hope you continue to feel good!!!

Your pal,

Bogart said...

Awesome work Jackson - glad to see you back on top of your game, looking good and cracking the whip.

Lotsa love,


the 4 Bs said...

hi Jackson, that was excellent work on the slippers. chewing, followed by vomit, is a very good strategy to get your J1 to help you blog. and it worked!


Poopsie Blue said...

Hi fav. WFT!

So relieved to hear the lumps just that.
I'd give J1's boots a miss that might be one chew to far...

Love, pats & pets

Petey said...

Hi Jax,

I'd been terribly worried that perhaps you'd started growing a second tail, so needless to say, I'm very relieved you've just got a pimple on your bum!

But in reading the comments, it seems EVERYONE's got one! Where's mine? Santa?

Remember - a wee bit of unexpected drama almost always results in a new post on the blog. Why do you think I keep contorting myself in my "sleep?" As soon as I hear that satisfying "click" of the camera, I know my fame will continue....

Your pal,


Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

Great job of teaching J1 a valuable lesson, Jackson! The vomiting trick almost always works! Ok, so does chewing up stuff that doesn't belong to you! We are sooooo glad the thingy on your tail is just a lipoma. Mom took Poppy to the vet, last week, to see about having hers removed. She will be keeping it for the foreseeable future. At least until our mom gets a job so she can pay the ginormous vet bill!

Poppy, Penny & Patches

Lenny said...

Nice work with the slippers and the vomit! An excellent strategy. Yesterday while my people were out having fun without me I puked on their bed. :) The nice thing is that they can't really get mad at you for vomiting, can they?

I'm glad the fatty lump is just that. I think it gives you extra cred in the substantial wires club - even your tail is substantial!

Your friend, Lenny

Amber-Mae said...

Good job with her slippers. I hope it did teach her a good lesson!

Simba said...

I think she may have learned her lesson!!!



Jake of Florida said...

Hey, it's true, we've been missing you!! We've been having similar problems with our secretary -- but she doesn't wear slippers -- so chewing them is not an option. We did knock over a basket from the front hall chest and spill the contents all over the floor and chew the basket (handmade from Charleston,South Carolina) -- but that only evoked the B word (followed by dog) -- and not any increase in blogging.

We're so glad to hear about the lipoma -- we know several humans who have them -- so it's nothing to worry about. Thanks for the good news.

Tell J1 to get busy and we'll tell our Mom to do the same!!!

Lots of wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Eduardo said...

Lipoma sounds way better than "fatty lump" but I hope it disappears! Is that good? I know J1learned her lesson! BOL!

Eric said...

Exceedingly good work Jackson. Hope the vomit was in the J's pathway? Definately go for the suede boots. She will be grateful, she's probably has been hankering after a pair of new ones anyway.

Glad news about your tail. Has it made your more substantial?

Wiry wags, Eric x

Sunny,Scooter,Jamie said...

So relieved to know tis only a lipoma> As far as further chewing goes. Hmm. Seems like that will be up to her now, doesn't it? If she blogs for you, all is well. If not. Well then.She has been warned...
Sorted out, wouldn't you say?

Scottie the 'cutie' said...

Lipoma...sounds foreign, but quite appropriate for a fatty lump. *wink* Good work on the slippers, Jackson!

Hope you have a great day!


Simba said...

I hope your tail is ok. What would you wag if you didn't have a tail?!

Murphey said...

Nothing like some puked up black rubber to teach those peeps a lesson!


Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said... Gussie's lump moved to ur butt??? He gets around, doesn't he??!!! So So glad that's all it was Jax!!!

We've done that slipper thing too many times to count...the rubber parts are a known delicacy, aren't they???!!!

Suede boots? We'll be over to share....

Love and kissies..


William Tell said...

Yep, that'll teach her to stop gallivanting off to work and leaving you home alone. Good job!

Happy Tails,
William Tell

Bae Bae said...

I think J1 learnt her lesson
Great work

Charlie Daniels said...

G'day Jackson

Sorry I haven't been around to visit in a while .. things have been a bit rough at my place ...

Hey! Great job on the slippers! ;-)



Stanley said...

Hey, Jax!

I've been missing you and my girl has also been remiss in her duties as my blog secretary. I think J1 has gotten the hint, and I think the suede boots might be a little over the top (if you know what I mean).

I'm wondering if Rodney, Gussie's fatty tumor, has migrated across the pond and taken up residence in your tail. You know how he likes Wires of substantial size. Could it be?

Goober love & smooches,

Cassidy said...

Glad your lump is only a lipoma. Big Harry has a few of those.

Georgeous said...

So glad your lump is okay Jakzie, you've had enough to go through this year, you deserve a few slipper and boots to sleep or nest on.
Love George

Huskee and Hershey said...

Hi Jackson,
Lipoma definitely sounds more dignified than 'fatty lump'.. it MAY give those humans the idea that we are fat when we get those things, which you know isn't true..
Nevertheless, I am glad it's something harmless!
Great job on the slippers.. maybe you can give her some advance 'warning' by hoovering near those boots if she still doesn't blog after this!

Stanislaw said...

Anything leather is delicious! I once ate an entire leather men's boot (dad's) and my humans didn't know. It didn't even make my tummy sick! All they found was the rubber bottom, the laces and the grommets that the laces go through. I don't like to waste any of my feast! Go for that suede man. Tasty!
