Photo updates

Hello pals, me and Teka put our heads together to get this update done!
Unfortunately, we still had to rely on muzzer to make the camera work.
So, we apologize in advance for the pictures. Gotta send that woman back to school.

Here is a photo of my leggie where it was shaved. As you can see, the fur is growing back nicely.And here is one view of the place where Rodney Resided.

Can you see the knots with the thread stuff hanging off? At first, muzzer thought those were the only stitches. But when the swelling went down, she could tell that there are six tiny stitches between the big knotty ones. And so you can all go OOH and AHH at the vets skill

Here is an alternate view. You can't see the knots as well, but you can see both drain holes.
Well, this is boring. Wagging bye-bye now.

Gussie...ur mom took that last photo from the wrong angle...

It sounds like our diligent hot compresses, medication, and excellent nursing care not to mention those Auntie Bye Otic Smoothies has had pawsitive results. I'm so glad ur feelin' better Gussie!!!

Gus...that Teka is just a scream! Um...would you ask her if Muzzer has shoes in her closet that might go with my promised purple cashmere? Perhaps something in gold or black with a wickedly high heel...size 1.5 narrow, please. Oh...with a peep toe...I love that look!

Barkin' at you dogs...Teka...perhaps you might wanna use the puter at the library for the next week. Any cool things in the coat closet in the foyer???

Heya Gus,
You'd better keep an eye on teka; she covets your stuff. She must be a politician cuz she promises lots of gifts and then muzzer sez "No way, Jose."
Yeah, nice tail shot, shouldn't taken it on the other side to really scank us out.
Glad to see you're doing so great.

That incision looks great! Thank dogness for aunty bye otics. No more fluid buidup. Looks great Gussie! Bet you're releived muzzer!

Stanley said...


Tell Muzzer we will take WHATEVER photos we can get of our beloved GusMan and his crazy Teka Toy sissy. As you could probably guess, my girl is enamored with that last photo. (That woman has NO shame.) You are looking buff and tuff!

You know, your black spots are very similar in color to Stella's saddle. Do you think you two could be related somehow?

Goober love & smooches,

Patience-please said...

wow that suture line looks fantabulous! Good job healing there Gusseruss!

I'll be down to start your therapy, if you've been cleared. We'll start with some squirrellie chasing stretches, then some diggin' for improved circulation, then some serious stink rollin' for strength and fun!

see ya soon-

Agatha and Archie said...

Oh dear Gussie I hope this is the last shot of your wound becasue Archie has just fainted again, I tried to warn him before he came over but it was too late.....It is looking good!! You are on the road to a full recovery!!!!! Tell Teka that she should snoop a little more in the closet and see if there are any cute skirts to go with the sweaters...Love A+A

the 4 Bs said...

hey Gus, those are some cool looking stitches. that Rodney left quite a mark on you.

can you please tell Teka that Muzzer isn't wanting to give away any more of her sweaters? maybe we should just hope for socks instead.


Butchy & Snickers said...

Hey Gussie,
Boy, your wound is looking better. Snickers is so happy it's healing fast. She said to tell you to wear your red terrier bannanana & it will hide your scar until your hair grows back, hehehehe. Muzzer might have to put her sweaters under lock & key so that Teka can't get to them. Who knows how many she gifted away.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butcho & Snickers

Sunny,Scooter,Jamie said...

Hey Gussie, I took your suggestion and am going to chaparone this thing. Especially after her siblings describd her muzzle as "think Hanibal Lector" Oh my dog.
