Penny's out of surgery!
Hi, everybuddy! It's me, Patches. Our mom just talked to the vet's office and they told her that Penny is out of surgery and doing fine! She's holding her head up and will come home after 4 p.m. today! Woohoo!
I, for one, will be really glad when she gets home! I didn't get my breakfast until after 9:00 this morning and now, Mom says I can't eat my afternoon meal until Penny comes home. Why do I have to suffer when I'm not the one having surgery? My mom says I should quit complaining 'cause she didn't eat breakfast until after 9 a.m. too.
Penny was one pissed pup, this morning! Our morning ritual goes like this: I jump on Mom's head, she gets up and goes into the bathroom. We can't figure out what she's doing in there, so we bark at her...especially Penny. It's an ear-piercing bark and Mom keeps yelling at us to stop it! Of course, we DON'T. Finally, she lets us outside. We hit the bottom of the steps, squat and fly back up the steps to eat breakfast. Normally, our mom has our food bowls in our feeding stands within a couple seconds of our arrival. Well...not this morning! She walked around the kitchen doing other stuffs and not paying any attention to us starving pups! WTF? We followed our mom all over the house and wouldn't get more than 2 inches away from her. We had to stay close, ya know, just in case she decided to give us our food. Well, no such luck! I sure hope we go back to our regular feeding schedule tomorrow! Today's schedule (or lack thereof) just sucks!
We'll keep you posted on how Penny's doing after she comes home!
PUPDATE: Penny is home and we just had our dinner. Mom took some away from Penny's dish and gave it to ME! Heeheehee! Penny's got a Poodle leggie and a ginormous shaved patch on her back. Her incision is about 7 to 8 inches long and she has lots of stitches on the inside and staples on the outside. That nasty thingy was lots bigger than what you could see on the outside. She just drank loads of water and has already been outside twice. So far, she's doing great! Oh, yeah, and I have an appointment to get my teefies cleaned next Tuesday. Penny's are all pearly white now and Mom says I have to match!
