Ping's A Star-A Semi Wordless Wednesday Post

Ping is a star!   This picture of her wearing a hat from the Etsy shop All You Need is Pug, which I took in August of 2010, is featured in the Smilers spread in the November/December issue of  Bark Magazine.  I am so excited!  Bark is my favorite magazine and we get a year's free subscription since Ping was chosen.   You can enter your smiling dog on their website.

As for Dr. Zira

 We got the results of  her needle biopsy and the news isn't the best it could be, or the worse.  The tentative diagnosis is a Basal Cell Tumor, generally these are locally invasive but tend not to spread.   The treatment of choice is still surgery but since Zira has a heart murmur we have to consider that as well.  Tomorrow she has an EKG scheduled to see how her heart is doing and  based on that we will decide if surgery is a good option.


  1. Well done Ping, you so deserve to be a star.

    Sorry to hear the bad news about Zira though. Sending you lots of love and hugs. I will cross my paws that tomorrow's EKG brings information that makes the decision easier.

    Lots of love and licks from Winnie and her People of the House

  2. Woof! Woof! Golden CONGRATS! We LOVE BARK too. Happy Wednesday! Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  3. The photo of Ping is adorable! We love the hat.
    We are sending positive thoughts and our strength to Zira for a good outcome. Keep us posted.
