Occupational injury!

Y'all remember yesterday what a good job me n' Teka Toy were
doin', keeping the varmints out of our back yard?
Well, last night at dinner, Muzzer says to me....... "OMD! GUSSIE WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO YOUR EYE!"
and from then on, I kinda felt like I was starring in a TV show.

Me and Muzzer and Dad piled into the GussieMobile and headed for the Emergency Vet Clinic.

They were very busy. We had to wait almost an hour, because some of the animals who came were "Class A" emergencies. Translation? They were bleeding on the floor or had been hit by a car and were unconscious.

Me...I just had an eye that was pretty messy looking.

We got to see the Dr. He didn't look anything like the one in this TV show.

He and the vet techs put me to sleep. Shaved my eye! (yucko) and put some medicines in it.

This is what I looked like this morning!

And this is where I am spending my time, mostly, today.

I also got lots of pills and medicines to take while I am home. And Tuesday, I have to check in with Dr. Jeff at my vet place to see how I am doing. One of those medicines makes me really sleepy, so that is all for now.

I hope your parents brought a copy of their mortgage to sign over to those emergency vets. They are wicked pricey. But when you gotta go, you gotta go, huh?

What the heck? Hope your eyeball is better soon.


Patience-please said...


Squirrellie warrior wounds are the BEST !
WHOA we are sooo happy for you!

Talk Muzzer into getting that torture thing off your neck. No enhanced interrogation techniques for her we're certain!

Then soak up all of the honor you are due, and wear your scare with utmost pride!

Butchy and Snickers said...

Oh our dawgness, now Snickers is really upset. First our monitor died before our new one came, then Mama got sick so we finally just got onto the puter today. Your poor eye, did the vet know what happened to it? did you poke it? or did some vermin scratch you? Mama said I can fly Miss Snickers over to help take care of you. Just be sure she takes her meds & Muzzer will prolly have to take Snickers out to potty each hour. See you soon!
Luv & Wirey Hugs,
Butchy, Snickers, Ruby, Sylvester & Scuby

TwoSpecialWires said...

Gussie! Just what happened to make your eye so awful? It looks painful and really icky! Did you poke it? Or did something scratch it? A branch? A squirrel? What happened! Thank goodness for good medicines and TLC (including the horrible collar, we guess.) We hope your eye is all better soon so you can get back to your normal self. Don't let Teka take advantage of you in your position!

Sending healing wags your way,
Jake and Fergi

Sunny,Scooter,Jamie said...

OMD!!! What a battle scar Gussie!!!! But ouch. You know what they say though, a man with a scar is sexy. Does that help any???? Has Muzzer had to have some of that adult beverage stuff to get over the adrenaline shock???

Hey, you're among our BFFs and we care a lot about you big guy. Take and easy and get better.

Oh Gussie,

I am so sorry to see your eye like that and you sick. And to make matters worse, you have to wear the dreaded lampshade! Poor guy!

Take all your meds and do what the doctor says. Do you think that you're going to need us nurses? We can get there in no time.

Get well soon, Gussie! We hate to see you like this.

Love and Lots of Extra Healing Koobuss Kisses,
