Pink Poppy is a new work in a happy studio today. This morning I chauffered AnnieBee to her favorite country retreat, her grandma's farm in East Texas. She enjoyed two dinners, hers and her skinny cousin Abby's (ignoring the yipping objections from Abby), then ran right up the stairs and scarfed down one more snack that was laying about unattended in Abby's bedroom. By the time AnnieBee arrived back home at the Medina Foster Home for Wayward Pugs this evening, she was stuffed and content. We are both wearing pink today to support pug rescue and breast cancer awareness. I am so very thankful to everyone who sent love and support while I was waiting for word on my biopsy this week.

The same time I was having my biopsy, a very special little heart pug in Washington was also having a biopsy. Max was my foster a few years ago. Max was adopted by one of the most loving families. His mom, Sarah, and I have stayed in touch over the years, and she told me last week they had found a mass on his chest the doctors were very concerned about. Today she received the results from the lab reports, and the cancer was stage 1 and they got clean margins. His prognosis is very good! I wish he were close enough for me to hug and kiss, one more time. It has been a good week for Max and for me, too. I think prayer has more than just a little bit to do with it.

Me and the boss, AnnieBeeBelly, wearing pink today!

Max, sweet foster baby!

Oh! Poor Max! He is gorgeous! I hope, Nancy, that he comes through with a clean bill of health after his surgery.

Love the pink poppies!
