So, I have been busy sleeping and settling in, and this weekend was really busy for Mom with different things. Sorry I haven't written my events down. I'll backtrack a little. Saturday, the day immediate after my surgery, my stomach was off. I ate, and I kept my food down, but I dry heaved a … Continue reading In Motion
I am home. I am a tripod. I hurt, and I am sleepy. I have my couch back, and I have NO CONE. That is all. Goodnight... What, Mom? Really? She says that's not good enough. That I have to provide details because a lot of people are nervous about their dog's first day home, … Continue reading Home Sweet Home
So the house is pretty busy this week. Mom and the boys have been doing a lot of reorganizing and cleaning. They keep telling me it's for me... but...I really don't need all this stuff. Things are pretty kosher with me, all things considered. I get to sleep all day, nobody bugs me. Though if … Continue reading One Day Left!
Warning... this is ugly. So for anybody who wanted a closer look, this is what I'm dealing with. And this picture doesn't show the worst of it. Mom tries to keep it covered, and a diaper used to work quite well. But I now have some swelling (from the drainage) above my "elbow", which makes … Continue reading Just Gross
My lump ruptured with another hole. This one is high up, near my armpit, and could possibly be related to the bandage I have to keep on. But the drainage requires the bandage, or I'd have to stay off everything but the wood floor... and I love my couch, and I like the new rugs … Continue reading Not Feeling So Well
Mom was watching some post-op videos on amputees this morning. She came across this one, and showed it to me. She said it reminds her of me a little bit--this is way too much energy for me to put forth on anything. Fetch is for Labs, and that goofy border collie-Yorkie brother of mine, Chance. … Continue reading Three-Legged Dog
Look at my new bed! My house has hardwood floors that are really old. Mom said when she moved in, the kitchen--which is where we go in and out--was in white carpet, and the other room the boys use had lime(ish) green. Mom said after a year or two of shampooing carpets every time … Continue reading Rugs!
I haven't been in the truck since early summer because of the weather and the air-conditioning. So when Mom said, "Daisy, let's go!" I came running. I smacked into everything on the way out--this cone is really a pain in the tail-- but the truck! Oh, the truck! I love the truck. We drove to … Continue reading Truck Ride!
I am dozing on the couch. I feel better today--that medicine Mom has been giving me has helped a lot. My leg isn't quite as swollen. But the lump is still draining and stinking. Mom is sitting on her computer. I know when she's like this and her fingers aren't making much noise, that she's … Continue reading Mom Can’t Sleep
I'm still wearing the cone... my Mom won. Or maybe my belly did. Dinner convinced me off the couch today, and I ran into every piece of furniture with this stupid thing to get to it. I went outside, and my brothers and sisters all smelled the thing on my head. We all came back … Continue reading Ouch!
