Stumbalina da Cancer Time Bomb


Yeah, Stumbalina da Cancer Time Bomb.  Dat are what my momma had da odd-ass-ity to call me today.  What da woof??  Dat are even worse dan Ally callin me "Whitty Whitty Woo Woo."

I guess I needs to explain.  Da Stumbalina part are cuz I are back to stumblin round.  Which are GOOD news, since I are puttin some weight on my bad leg and not havin to be held up to do my bizness anymores.  Dat wuz embarassin, so I'm glad we's done wif dat.  But I are still stumblin round.  Sometimes I drag my leg, sometimes I just walk like I's had bout 5 too many margaritas (as if dere wuz such a thing).

Now, for da Cancer Time Bomb.  Before y'all get too worried, I DON'T have cancer.  Well, probably not.  But da results from my cancer screenin came back and dey wuz not eggsactly good.  My systematic inflammayshun tested as high (and nope, da vet said it wuzn't cuz of my leg, it are systematic inflammayshun, not local).  And my cancer risk assessment are elevated - cuz of da inflammayshuns and abnormal cellular divishuns.  So yeah, not good news.  It wuzn't terribull, but I is at an increased risk of gettin cancer.  Well, at 13, I's pretty much at an increased risk of everything.


I did get to wear da udder side of my Día de los Muertos dress today, so dere wuz some funs.


 And I got compliments on it from da vet tech!


Dis side also has got cool skull buttons on it.



Den me and momma spent a couple hours outside.  I had a better time dan her, she got stung by a wasp!  And man did she yell bout it.


But even she had somefin good happen today - Blue Bell ice cream are back!!  So she and Finley's momma rushed out to da grocery store and dey had ice cream for breakfast - Breakfast of Champions, BOL!



Dey got 4 cartons (dat wuz da limit at da store).  And I saw homemade vanilla and buttered pecan, so maybe I'll be gettin my Blue Bell soon.  After all, my Gotcha Day are comin up, hint hint momma.

    1. Yeah, dey don't got Blue Bell in California. Y'all are depraved. Or errr, deprived, dat are what I meant. But a lack of Blue Bell dis summer made my momma depraved, so maybe I wuz right da furst time.

      I'd go wif an all-da-way full margarita glass, but it wouldn't stay dat way for long.

    1. Yeah, Blue Bell are a Texas ice cream, but it has expanded a lot throughout da south. It are really good - still a full half gallon and not whipped full of air.

  8. Whitley, paws crossed for you to celebrate many, many mor birthdays/gotcha days with your Mom! And you most certainly deserve some icecream...amybe even a lot of ice-cream!

    Interesting that the only other ice cream company besides BlueBell that had listeria, or whatever it was, is a Columbus-based artisanal ice cream called "Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream". And it is indeed splendid! Can buy it by the cone but not by the pint yet. when it returns, your Mom and you really oughta try it. It's way worth the high price!

  16. Hi Whitley
    You just keep on stumbling around and doing what you can and enjoy wearing pretty dresses and helping your mom eat ice-cream, and don't think too much about any test results. Gail says she thinks Butter Pecan ice-cream cures most things anyway.
    Toodle pip!

Great that your mom bought as much as pawsible from that tasty stuff! My momma loaded her cart with her beloved ice cream too because it was on offer... the salespawsaon said it is not allowed to buy for commercial reasons at retail stores and my momma had to put 87 jars back to the cooling area. butt she was nice and said nothing as my mom came back again to buy the next allowed limit :o)

  21. The problem with getting old is you get everything1 We are sending POTP that the bad things stay away from you as long as possible. Enjoy your ice cream (we are sure it is a cure).

  22. Listeria ~ well I hope when Blue Bell came back they left the listeria behind. I will put my Cincinnati Graeter's Ice Cream up against your Blue Bell anytime. Graeter's does the French Pot Ice Cream. I feel sad that you have the systemic inflammation but that old arthritis can make it high. Maybe you just be friends with Arthur.
    Thanks for being a friend

  25. We are glad you are able to start getting around a little bit. We bet your mama sure worries about you cuz that's what mama's do when we pups get old. So maybe she should share some of that ice cream with you if you promise not to spill it on that beautiful dress. And seriously, we really do want to see your closet!

  28. I understand how stumblin' around is good...when Gibson was rehabbing for his bad leg and weak hind end, seeing him stumble a bit but on his own was a good sign! Keep strong, Whitley! And NO "C" bombs. Love the dress! The coolest!
