Waiting for the new storm front to move in

 This is me waiting and watching for the next set of rain clouds to move into our area. We are not supposed to have flooding again but the rivers will be close to flood stage.

This here is Cooper in his mankini (also known as a belly band). He has a whole bunch that he can choose from. He wears them when we are left alone in the house 'cause he pees where he is not supposed to. If he wears them he never pees in the house 'cause he doesn't like a wet mankini around his middle.

This is our cousin Beau in Arizona. He has 5,000 friends on Facebook. He gets to eat the most amazing food 'cause he is on the BARF diet. And our grandmother sends him presents at Christmas but not us. We don't know how Beau does this but we want to find out his secret 'cause we love presents too!

Over and out,

It's Snowing

 Can you see me in the wilds of the front yard? The snow has been falling so heavily that I might be hidden by it all!
 Mum's clown car (Scion Xbox) is covered in the white stuff.

 The poor plastic pink flamingos are freezing their tushies off!

Hooray! It is a SNOW DAY in Oregon! It makes me run around and frap and yap!

Mom can we go to this store?

These are preserved stuffies. Can you imagine? Stuffies in glass jars. Just to have on the shelf to look at. Mum found it here.

I went to the vet and came home

 I made every attempt to get to the "cheese-in-a-can" but it was difficult to negotiate the small counter space.
 Isn't there a ladder here for me?
 I can smell that cheese, where is it?
After my visit with the vet they decided I have to wait 5 more days before my sutures can come out.
 Cooper gave his information to tech vet himself, note the "can-of-cheese" right by his snout.
 Oh geez, he's kissing the tech vet! That is so against the rules.
 This is Coop snarfing up the "cheese-in-the-can" after his Adequan shot.
 This is me having a nap when we came home. All the vet business is tiring. Plus I ate a lot of "cheese-in-the-can"!

Another Fashion Moment

Yes, it is amazing even in my debilitated state that I remain a "fashionista", albeit with questionable choices. Mum swears to me that the hair will grow back on my tum-tum. (She had better be right or there will H**l to pay if'in you ask me. I have my standards). Mum says my sutures come out next week and it cannot come soon enough for me. Does "itchy" mean anything to you? It does to me.

On the positive side of life, I went for 8 hours without needing a piddle break. Mum said it was very nice to be able to sleep through the night without getting up at 2am for a potty break. Hey, I am worth a 2am visit outside in the freezing weather, even in jammies.

A Delicious Blog to Visit

Mum discovered a wonderful new blog at Hens Teeth (I had no idea hens had teeth and if they do then why don't they eat anything besides seeds and things off the ground?) Anyway, we like the blog and it is good fun to visit :)


Corgi Cummerbund

This is me in my corgi cummerbund, also known as a belly band. Due to my recent roto-rooter surgery I am "leaking" a bit. My good friend, Marlene, was most kind in her assessment:

Still, it's very slimming, really hides any holiday weight

Thank you dear Marlene for your positive outlook on my new fashion statement. For the moment I have removed it since it is held on only by Velcro tabs and hidden it under the bed with Cooper's stuffed animals that he mothers. Being a fashionista can be tiring.

Pain Meds are not Good Bed Fellows

This is me on morphine. My girlfriend and nurse, Jasmine, took this picture of me when I was in the recovery room/kennel. They fill your kennel with warm blankets and towels so you are really comfortable while you zone out on drugs. I have no idea how my snout got caught on the cage but it does show off my pearly white teeth. Mum thinks this is funny, I do not.

We Are Up and Moving, Sort of

Dozer is up and moving, albeit gingerly. The "cone of shame" has yet to be employed since he is napping and being quiet most of the time. Sutures come out in ten days or so. His appetite is robust and he is drinking lots of water, as we hoped he would!

Thank you for all your drool and prayers :)

Dozer's Surgery

Dozer has surgery yesterday to remove bladder stones that had impeded his ability to pee. It was a very painful surgery and he is now resting comfortably at home. He will post shortly to share his view of modern medicine.
