Tan Torkelson Reporting...

It is ME Tan Torkelson reporting after going to that VET. I totally thought I was going to go in there and that vet would be like, Tan Torkelson you are about to star in an exciting movie...

A movie where they rip my FACE OFF!!

But instead they looked at my Chart and it said that the thing I had on my LEG before was an ALL Serrated His Tea-o-site-oma. (Note from Mom: Ulcerated Histiocytoma) Which is not a bad bump, just a bump that would go away all by itself. So HE said I am going to STICK A NEEDLE IN MY FACE to see if he can tell what it was. A NEEDLE IN MY FACE guys?!?!?!??!! WTFFFFFFFFFFFF!!!!!!!! I put up a good fight, so he was not able to get much out of it that was useful. SO now I am starring in this movie...

I get to wait, and see what happens. Because I am SO YOUNG he doesn't expect it to be anything BAD and it should just start to go away. BUT he said it will probably get UGLIER before it gets better. WTF dude, who are you calling UGLY?!!!! ANyway...so I guess that is GOOD news and now we just have to be PATIENT! Not Patience, that is the whippet waggle's servant and I dunno if I would want to be her because I'd probably screw up and end up losing one of the whippets somewhere!!

ANYWAY so dudes, I don't want my smart dot to go away but I guess I HAVE to or else they will surgerize my FACE off. SO send me some going away dot vibes OK?!

Note from Mom: For new readers, Tanner had an ulcerated histiocytoma on his leg 2 years ago which was removed to be sent to the lab for diagnosis. Since that is all it was the Vet is pretty confident that is what he has on his face. Because it is in such a precarious spot, having it removed would be very hard so we are just going to keep an eye on it for a couple of weeks. All healing vibes, prayers, thoughts, etc are appreciated!

Hi Tanner!
I hope that face dot goes away on it's own, and doesn't get uglier! I can't believe they stuck a needle in your face!! Those vet places are always so rude!

Mrs. Stains,
We are sending Tanner super duper heaping amounts of Macky healing sugars. Although I have a feeling he won't be needing them - I bet that dot is just Joey doing a little voodoo!

Hey Tan Man,
At least you aren't starring in the CRYING Game!! BOL!!

Well, at least it sounds like it isn't a bad thing. Maybe woo should try some of that magic disappearing cream that ladies use to get rid of age spots. Sending sibe vibes for the dot to disappear.

Tanner - it will go away. those vets just want your dads money or something, or else they are just plain into messing around with their needles and such. Put some aloe plant juice on it. And wear it proudly till its gone. I think u r still very handsome.

Hey Tan!

Bummer about that needle in the face, buddy. At least it looks like it's not too serious, man.

I think that's what my Astaroni fuzzpup had on her lip one time and it eventually just fell off one day. Just don't let anyone get hold of your bio waste... they may try to clone you.

Goober love & healing smooches,
STanley

I thought you look cool with the mole. But since your mum wants it surgically removed if it doesn't go away.. then I'll pray then it will miraculously be gone tomorrow!

Can you move your face after getting a needle in it? Does the tooth fairy bring you anything if your bump falls off? Are you going to be able to wait to see if it falls off? My head hurts from all this thinking.

It will go away, you'll see. Mom said mine got real big..and sorta crusted and fell off....then..she said I had the weirdest little patch of hair growing back that was a different colour(this all on the top of my head)...I really worried her with my big dot too!:)

Tan, Next time, play dead. I swear it works. They will be so worried about you that they will forget about the smart dot, needles, and surgitizing. I'm gonna try it next time Mama takes me to the Vet Place That Smells Funny and Scary.

Be brave bud and be nice to your mom and dad, they are worrying about you a lot.

your face should be preserved for future historians.

Vets stick their needles and their hands every place private to a dog, in my view, and are far too intimate.

I hope it all turns out ok!

I have the vet tomorrow morning, kennel cough vaccine and something called Anals...........

I will keep you posted although if when I am at the V.E.Ts, and I hear the sound of those blasted rubber gloves being prepared, I am outta there, I can tell you!
