I update

I went to see the Dogtor this morning.

Muzzer said my eyelid looked thick.

This morning we saw Dr. Jeff, who is one of my favorites.

He looked at my eye, prodded at it, and made some pussy stuff come out.

He also found the hole that was the original wound, and says it was most probably a spider bite.

But --- I gotta wear the cone a while longer, get my ointment and take my pills.

the GOOD NEWS! I have not gained any weight.


pee ess...One of the reasons I like Dr. Jeff is that he is a "substantial" fellow too.

Oh Gussie...more cone...how horrible! I'm crossing my paws that it won't be too much longer! Feel better!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Sorry about the khone thing - khan't Muzzer fill it with ice khream at some POINT?

Glad your eye is getting there just not THERE yet!

Mom says nothing wrong with substantial - often khalled more to love!

Hope YOUR muzzer is feeling better too!


Jake of Florida said...

Good news, Gussie!!

We're going to the Dog Tor on Wednesday for check-ups and we think we may have turned into roly poly porky dogs, aka Substantial Wires!!!

Sorry about the collar!!!

Woofs of sympathy,

Jake and Just Harry

(Have you looked at Albert recently? He's doing pretty well too when it comes to being substantial.)

Faya said...

Oh this is good news. I like to read this. Do I have to come and eat this horrible spider ? (I always do it when Véronique ask...).
Kisses, Faya

EEEWWWW, puss came out? Thats kinda gross, but I am glad he got it out. You are sure a trooper! Spiders are scary and I am sorry it bit you.

The Airechicks said...

Lots of pups are big boned no need to point it out.....just to make them feel worse when they don't feel good to begin with.....

Nasty, icky, uncivilized spiders....You need to adopt a lizard to them up!!!!

So more cone time - will guess it could be worse....you still have your eye.....

Take all your pills & rest - When do the WFT Nurses arrive - oh are they still in South Africa????


Brownie said...

Ewie and ouchie! Pus? URRRK. I'm glad that your weight remained stable. I hope your eye gets better.

Daddy is scared of spiders... so at my house, my momster is the one who kills the spiders... after all, with a name like hers, the spiders stand no chance! BOL!

Mango said...

Fascinating. Sorry about the cone, but you are certainly on the mend.


Scout and Freyja said...

We just sniffed our way over to you and see that you have a banged up eyeball. We are so sorry 'bout that an' hope that it is better soons so you don't have to be a conehead too many more days.

Sally said...

Biting spiders? Not sure we like the sound of that - you poor thing - that cone thing is never a fun thing to wear. We hope you are feeling better soon.

Substantial? We call it big boned with a slow metabolism

Maggie and Mitch said...

What an evil spider he was! We hope you're back to 100% soon, Gussie and you can lose that nasty lampshade!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

We hope your eye is all better VERY soon, Gussie! You better sleep with one eye open from now on so you can eat any spider that may approach your handsome self!

Patience-please said...

Swede William is enraged. he is willing to come down and kill every spider in Mayemphis and maybe all or Tennessee.

TwoSpecialWires said...

Gussie. That spider had some nerve. We're sorry you're having to deal with his poor judgement. And we hope your eye is all better really soon. In the meantime, keep your butt to the wind. Those lampshades look like they could double as wind surfing thingees. We don't want you blowin' away (unless you blow over here for a visit.)

Take care, buddy,
Jake and Fergi xxoo

Eric said...

Biting spiders? Ewww. Poor Gussie. As for the weight thingie if you have any spares pass it over I still can't make the weight to join. Get better soon and watch out for pussycats emerging from your eyes, their claws are sharp.

Wiry wags n kisses Eric xxxx

Good to have that eye checked, Gus. At least it sounds like things are slowly improving.

woos, the OP Pack

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

How big are those spiders down there??? Hmm....you didn't lose any brains, did ya Gussie? Sheeshch...I so hope Scruffy never gets bitten...all his brains would ooze out...and he only has a few to begin with...

Are ya still substantial, Gussie??? Oh my...we couldn't stand it if ya got all bony and stuff...

We're going to bed...tired...chased deer all day and crows...and geese...it's a dog's life here...

Loving kisses to Teka...

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanny
