ohhh my

With the exception of some pretty good news from Jackson's mom, I think I am not having a very good day. We were worried about Jackson because he wasn't feeling too well, but it seems that it may be some incompatible medicines that are causing most of the problems.

Then, my blog pal Abby was not feeling well yesterday and ended up at the vets. She is doing a little better, and gets to come home later today, but please go visit and tell her mom you are thinking of them. Moms and muzzers seem to have a hard time with sick doggies.


AND...when I woke up this morning I thought Rodney had come back to visit! Or at least a small part of him. And I got pretty excited. But muzzer had to go and freak out and take me to the vet again! And it wasn't Rodney. It was just some old fluid build up in the pocket where Rodney lived. Darn. But it was kind of amusing to watch muzzer during the process....


First of all, muzzer is not good with yucko stuff. Dad changed the diapers, cleaned up the barf, changed the bandages, and just generally gets to do this type of thing at our house. He says it isn't that he likes this kind of thing. It is just that he doesn't like having to come through and clean up after muzzer too.


So, today it turned out that the vet was crowded in the back because they have, like, FIFTY evacuee animals that they are boarding! So the vet just called in the tech person and they lanced the two holes where the drains were. And it went WHOOSH! And I said "yike"
And I heard muzzer make a funny sound, and then there was a thump from behind me! Let me tell you, the vet was not happy with muzzer. But then, muzzer was not happy with the vet when they finally got her off the floor.

And so now, we have to keep those drain holes working for a while again. And muzzer is bummed, because she is really bad at this (see my notes above) and they are supposed to use some funny looking thing to wash out the holes. Oh, I am really getting anxious to see what dad makes of this whole thing.
We might blog tomorrow.

Oh my dog Gussie! Did they give Muzzer smelling salts?? Everydoggie needs to get better. Like you said, not just for the doggies,we DO want them healthy, but the Muzzers suffer bucketloads to. Must be in Muzzer DNA to have the gene for "worry". We all seem to be afflicted with it!
So evrydoggy,GET BETTER!! and Gussie, that means you too!

Whoosh! Yike! Thump!
Tsk!tsk!
Gussie, you and your pretty nursie take care of your new 2 drained holes or whatever that is, I come right over to do some gait & balance strengthening and emotion control for muzzer.
Our muzzers have to stay well to keep blog rolling!
Cheers!

Stanley said...

So tell me, Gussie, is that a photo of the blood splatter on the vet's office wall? If so, VERY COOL. (And, who did you get to take the photo?)

Your vet techs are a little slow on the uptake, I'm thinking. They should have taken a photo of Muzzer FIRST, THEN gotten her up on her feet. Sheesh. Another missed opportunity.

Sorry Rodney didn't get to come back to at least say hi, but I think he sent some old friends to do it for him.

Goober love & smooches,
Stanley

Gee Gussie,

We don't check in for a few hours and look what happens!!!

We hope things are under control again. That the Bring Rodney Back Campaign has been defeated. That muzzer is upright again. That Dad has taken charge of the drainage system. And that you are doing what all good terriers do: barking orders to everyone.

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Patience-please said...

Oh NO @@ Gussie! Your poor Muzzer fainted? You tell her not to feel bad, because our servant who is an RN AND who worked in the OR up to her elbows in human's bellies and worse all the time, SHE fainted once when Mama Pajama was so sick and Ol' Poke n Stick was doing something nasty to our sweet little Mama Peejamas.
You get better very quickly and no more visits from Rodney Imposter no no no no...
