Mackie is HOME!

Mackie got to go HOME today!
His mom and dad picked him up after 4:00 this afternoon EST
and except for a zipper, a cone, and special instructions on
diet and activity, things are back to "normal' at his house.


Here is a picture of his zipper.

Man...that looks uncomfortable.

Everyone can now uncross one ( 1, uno) paw
The rest can remain crossed for the time being.

Oh boy, that brings back memories of Phantom's nasty zipper. Hope Mackie heals quickly. So good to know he is well enough to go home. Paws crossed for continued healing.

Hey Gussie,
Our mom says that Maclie has a very professional stitching job there. We always get our zippers coated with Neosporine ointment to cut down the chance of infection, speed healing and reduce (not eliminate) scarring. We bet his die t restriction include not eating socks or other cloth material. Keep us posted on his recovery, please. We'll keep the Good Vibe machine cranked up for a few days just be on the safe side.

YIPPEE! Oh, I am so very much glad that he's home! I hope his ouchie heals up real soon. And I think he should make up some story abouts how he was protecting his family from wild lions and that's how he got the scar.

Now that looks like it would really hurt. Hope all heals quickly....

All that from eating a sock? Ugh! And the cone of shame to boot. Poor Mackie! Bet he feels like he was run over by a truck. Hope you're back to normal real soon, pal, and try not to swallow any more fabric when you're defluffing the stuffies. Good safety tip for all of us.

Happy Tails,
William Tell

That's some zipper you have there! Eeek! I only looked through my fingers...ouch! Give your brother extra kisses!

P.S. We call our Gus, Gussie too :)

Oh, we are thrilled that Mackie is home and on the road to recovery! Like I mentioned before, it gives Parental Unit chills to think of the many surgeries her ornery Wire Fox, Carson, had-many a "zipper" had he!

Rest up, Mackie!
