Testing times...

Hey pals, some of you know that I've been back and forth at the vet again this week. I've been a bit under the weather and the vets are trying to figure it all out. I like to keep them on their toes. I've had the usual poking and prodding tests and on Thursday I had chest and bladder x-rays again. Trouble is, they were "inconclusive" so have been sent off to the specialists. I'll keep you posted as soon as I hear anything.

In the meantime, I thought I'd show you my latest feature film. Remember Eric's recent video with the solitaire game? He gave an oscar-winning performance. But you know me. Not one to play by the rules. Eric made it look too easy, so I thought I'd show you my approach. J1 calls it "Bull in a Chinashop". Make sure you turn up your volume for maximum enjoyment and carrot- crunching sound effects. Enjoy...

Hmm Jackson. You keeping them vets guessing Jackson? I did tell your dogtors to take extra special care of my hero and give him nothing but the bestest tip top treatment.

You are way too kind pal about my gaming techniques...I can tell you were completely distracted by the Carpenters warbling away in the background to concentrate on your game. Anyways who cares.. it was wagging good to look upon your handsomeness for so long.

Paws crossed for extra good results Jackson. Please stay well.

Wiry wags n kissies, Eric xxxxx

Hi Jackson
Eric sent us over to send you basset best wishes for your test results. We will keep our paws crossed.
On a lighter note we enjoyed your video - a lot of skill involved there and our mum loves the Carpenters - so it was a win win.
Keep well Jackson

TwoSpecialWires said...

Hey, Jackson. We just stumbled on your page (and love Le Petit Prince!) We're hoping your vet appointments turned out okay, with good ideas about what to do to take care of your "issues." Maybe some good pats and hugs will be part of the treatment. They always seem to help. We'll check back to see (if we can figure out how!)
Jake and Fergi

Sally G said...

Is that Karen Carpenter singing a Neil Sedaka song? Beautiful and that game is great, I coult play it but Rufus would eat the the timbles, he LOVES wood.
Hope you are happy bud.
We will doing a little Zen for you tonight.

Petey said...


You truly have movie star potential - you know exactly the right moment to turn to the camera and turn on those puppy eyes. Maybe we could get you your very own show on the Food Network.

In the meantime, how did you do on your tests? Did you cheat - I told you it was okay to cheat this time, right? You're sure missed on the bloggies - come by for a visit and catch up!

Your pal,


Stanley said...


What happened to the master of disaster?! You've been taking etiquette lessons haven't you? I have to say that the camera really loves you, man. You have MAJOR stage presence.

Did you pick out the soundtrack yourself? You can NEVER go wrong with the Carpenters. NEVER!

Hope you're feeling better pronto, buddy. Keep us posted as you hear from the vets. We're sending you gobs of healing goober smooches!

Goober love,

Molly and Taffy said...

Hello Jackson

WE were very concerned when we read you have had to go for more tests.

We have everything crossed that we could possibly cross in the hope that the specialists come back with a good report.

Quincy said...

Paws crossed that it's nothing serious. I went to the vet yesterday. I have Kennel Cough. Madison has a cold too. She says we sound like a flock of Canada geese.

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...


I hope you are feeling better. I'm sure the crunching of carrots helped with any necessary heeling!
