Tommy Thursday - UPDATED

Tommy: Woofs, everyone. Today is the day #1 and I take our precious Tama to get all those tests done. They will happen under general anesthetic and we may not be able to return and update until this evening, so please bear with us. But if you could send good thoughts and cross paws, we would much appreciate it.

Yesterday, I accompanied #1 to lunch with a couple of friends at a pretty fancy restaurant. As is the case almost everywhere in France, dogs are allowed, and I was complimented by the people there about my gentlemanly behaviour, and invited to come back anytime!

Here I am being a good boy:

And looking a little coy in this one:

And in case you were wondering, this is what #'s main course looked like:

Here I am, looking happy in my (wet) field:

And another (different ball!):

We'll update when we get back.

UPDATE: We are back from a full day of tests with Tama. She came through everything well. She appears to have some kind of fairly severe broncho-pneumonia although we won't know the causes, and therefore the best treatment, until we get some test results back. More details and some photos in tomorrow's blog post. Thanks so much for all the good thoughts!


  1. Tommy, we are not surprised that you have good manners :)
    We purr you got a little treat at the restaurant ;)
    We will be purring for Tama.
    Purrs Georgia,Julie and JJ

  2. I will be waiting to hear what the results are for Tama!

  3. oh I would have the same look... that looks super tasty and like made for my 7 stomachs.
    we cross all paws and fingers for good results and supergood news for Tama

  4. Darling Tommy, we'd love to have you at our table. Of course, our mum would be handing you little bits of food so she could look into your beautiful eyes.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with Tama.

  5. We sure send Tama all kinds of good thoughts. Hope all goes well for Tama. What a good boy you are Tommy. That lunch looks yummy.

  7. Sending good thoughts and purrs to Tama. May the tests go smoothly and quickly so you are home soon!!

  8. sending LOTS of purrs to Tama, the vet and all of you


  9. We are hoping the vet also take x-rays of Tama's lungs to rule out anything on the lungs themselves. We will be sending lover her way today.

    Tommy, Wilhelmina shyly claims you look very handsome and dapper photographed outside with your balls. :)

  10. C'est grâce aux chiens comme toi, qui savent se tenir, que les chiens sont acceptés dans les restaurants.
    J'espère que tout c'est bien passé pour Tama.
    Bonne soirée

  11. Tama, I am right there with you and the family hoping for a good course of treatment to help you straight away.

  12. We know you're a gentledog, Tommy, well done ! We cross our paws for sweet Tama and hope the results help to chose the best treatment for her. Purrs

  13. You are a special guy Tommy, and handsome too. Purrs to sweet Tama and to getting that pneumonia under control.

  14. We are so jealous that you get to go to the restaurants, Tommy, but we aren't so sure we would be as well-behaved as you are.

    Poor Tama. But at least you have something to work with. All paws crossed for her to do well with some new meds.

    Woos - Lightning and Misty

  15. ohhhh poor Tama! Bronchitis is NO fun! Purrs to you for a speedy recovery! (and TOmmy, you do "coy" quite well!)

  16. We are so glad to hear you have a reason for Miss Tama's illness. You are the envy of all the dogs across the pond Tommy. We will never be allowed in a restaurant around here.
