Good to hear Kat. Wishing all the best for himFeb 13, 2020 at 6:30 pm #3631149
“It’s a good day!!!!”
Good news and reason to be hopeful. We’ll be following.Feb 14, 2020 at 8:27 pm #3631346
After the biopsy. Shows the baldness and the weird clumps of hairs he has. Sounds like he’ll need two or three surgeries to get all the tumors out.Feb 14, 2020 at 8:28 pm #3631347

Poor little guy. And now he has to wear the cone of shame!
Hope all the surgeries are successful and he’s back to his regular self soon!Feb 17, 2020 at 12:09 am #3631694David USpectator
Totally missed this Kat. Wow. What a ride!
Wishing the pup a speedy recovery. As a new dog owner myself, this ordeal would have been frightening. He is lucky to have you.Feb 20, 2020 at 6:50 pm #3632337Feb 20, 2020 at 9:55 pm #3632362
What a pup! Looks like he’s running it all out. Hope he sleeps well tonight. You too! all of us.Mar 9, 2020 at 2:11 am #3634958
Just submitted another paper, this one analyzing Turkish passive construction and valency changing operations. Yeah it’s as dry as it sounds.
But!!! tomorrow we take Baldy back to UC Davis for his surgery consult. Poor guy’s head is covered in bumps. Hopefully they can do it all in one surgery but something tells me it’ll be more than that.
Other than the bumps he’s doing great. He’s a great little dog.Mar 9, 2020 at 2:40 am #3634960Nick GatelBPL Member

Turkish passive construction and valency changing operations
That sounds mind boggling. So, which is correct?
- Nick pities Baldy.
- Nick feels pity for Baldy.
Anyway, good luck to the three of you.Mar 9, 2020 at 5:03 am #3634965
“There is pity for Baldy being-li-felt”
an impersonal construction with a passive suffix on the verb; a valency reduction from 2-1. Something like that, depending on what argument they verb takes. Seriously .
Thanks Nick, we are out the door.Mar 9, 2020 at 8:29 am #3634986
see what I mean?
Nick is just trying to fool us about “just being an auto mechanic”
I have no idea what a passive construction or valence change is, but I know as much as I need to get Kat’s joke : )Mar 9, 2020 at 8:32 am #3634987
But mine was not a jokeMar 9, 2020 at 8:42 am #3634992
okay, joke not the right word, I get your point is what I meant to say : )
good to see Baldy is doing wellMar 9, 2020 at 9:18 am #3634999
I am so confused. What I did was write what the Turkish passive clause would look like. It was extending my hypothesis to answer what Nick proposed. No joke/point, just me being in school mode.Mar 9, 2020 at 9:24 am #3635000
okay, point not the right word, I get what you were trying to say
uh oh, I keep digging that hole again, I’ll stop nowMar 9, 2020 at 9:51 am #3635004
There is no sanity clause. I know that. And I know that Jerry is part beagle in that he likes to dig holes.
I’m for gun control because I keep shooting myself in the foot.Mar 9, 2020 at 3:05 pm #3635037
We met with the surgeons and they said it’s not only a rare condition; they have never seen a dog with so many of these benign tumors on their head. We decided to go ahead and do the surgery and they could do it tomorrow morning so we left our Baldy with them. They will remove the entire flap of skin from eyebrow back to the ears and then cut a big flap from his neck and attack it over his head. He’ll be there 3 to 5 days. Hopefully all goes well and we’ll have a really funny looking pup with a weird name.Mar 9, 2020 at 3:41 pm #3635039
Poor boy! Keep us updated. It sounds like he’s in the best handsMar 10, 2020 at 7:13 am #3635118
Thanks Ian. I am feeling a bit panicked this morning thinking about what a big thing he’s about to go through. We should hear from them twice a day.Mar 10, 2020 at 9:11 am #3635127d kBPL Member
Hang in there, Kat! I’m glad they’re able to do this surgery in one go. Baldy should be home and his happy self very soon. Keep us all posted.Mar 10, 2020 at 12:48 pm #3635147obx hikerBPL Member
Best wishes to buddy Baldy and may he continue to bring joy to the world.Mar 10, 2020 at 4:19 pm #3635171
Thank you. I am waiting to hear from the surgeon, hopefully soon.Mar 10, 2020 at 6:54 pm #3635192
The assistant surgeon called and said it went well and Baldy is recovering. The surgeon will call later tonight with full details.
UC Davis is the best place; I have never been to a place that treats both dogs and their owners with such care. Last night we got an email from the doctor we saw three weeks ago that did the biopsy, also at UC Davis, and he said he was in touch with the surgeon and went over to see Baldy and would go over twice a day and check on him.
