Something for Jackson!

OK, Jackson and his mum asked for some pictures of the torture instrument the vet gave muzzer to use on the Rodney Pocket and keep it from filling up again. So.....to the right of this paragraph is the instrument fully extended. It gets filled with warm water or hi! drujen prockside and the curvy tip gets inserted into the holes left by the drain, and then the plunger is depressed and the Rodney pocket gets flushed out.

Still with us? Ok...here is a closeup of the curvy tip,

Hanging in there? Well, we didn't take a picture of the bowl we use to catch the drainage for the first few minutes, full or empty, it isn't very pretty.

And, finally, a fairly good view of the Rodney Pocket pre flushing this morning.

Umm...scuse me guys, my stomach is doing flip flops trying to write about this....so even though I really am feeling finejustfine, I am gonna lay down for a little bit!


(FINE in our house means, Freaked out, Insecure, Neurotic and Excitable. muzzer)

SO COOL! I sure hope for Muzzers sake its over soon, but man all that gross medical stuff is cool for us boys!!

Just have Muzzer think of it as a special little shower head! That should make it less scary.

Ooo, thanks for sharing Gus! So how do YOU feel about having Rodney's pocket flushed? Do you protest? Or maybe it feels kinda nice and soothing??? J x

PS You should have seen J2 try and squirt a syringe of potassium citrate down my throat today, it was PAWSOME! Hehehe, I lead him a merry dance!
