Our blogaversary...and Poppy went to the v-e-t!

Hi everydoggie, kitty, hammie, bear and hooman! It's me, Poppy! Today is our first blogaversary! It was one year ago today, that Aunt Wendy came over and helped our personal secretary (aka Mom) start our very own blog! Some of you have said that it seems like we have been blogging more than a year. Well, our mom read blogs to us looooooong before we started our own. She made comments on everydoggie else's blog so some of you have actually know us for much more than a year!
I had to go to the v-e-t this morning! I don't mind GOING...it's once we GET there that I object to. The very first thing they did was stick that awful thermometer in my fuzzbutt. How humiliating! For a few days, now, I have had a bump on my fuzzbutt that was oozing blood mixed with clear liquid. Mom has been putting hot compresses on it and Neosporin, but this morning, it seemed to be even more swollen.

Off we went to see Dr. Hardee. I LOVE Dr. Hardee! He's always sooooo nice to me! Unfortunately, this time, all he wanted to look at was my fuzzbutt. It seems that I have an infection in one of my anal glands. He expressed both glands and I was a really good girl while he worked on me.

Now I have to take antibiotics twice a day for 14 days and then I have to go back to be re-checked. He felt a thickening by one of my anal glands and he wants to make sure it isn't something more serious...like a tumor! The whole thing isn't bothering me, one bit, but my mom was kind of freaking out! I told her to chill out...I'm still eating, doing zoomies and playing bitey-face. I told her that if I quit doing any of those things, THEN she can freak out!
Well, everybuddy, it's time for my afternoon nap. See you all next time! Happy New Y-aire!
Poppy, Penny & Patches

Hey, AireGirlies!!!

First off, Happy Happy New Year! I hope everyone at your house has the best year ever!

Patches ~ I totally understand about the toenails. I didn't learn how to be a good boy when getting my nails cut as a wee pup, so now that I'm with my girl, they practically have to sedate me to get it done. And let me tell you, I've got some claws going!

Poppy Girl! Bummer about the fuzzbutt owie! At least you now know more of what's going on & can get rid of that infection. We're sending you a load of goob smooches to help you heal up and to make sure that whatever else is going on back there is nothing serious!

Give some goob smooches to your sweet mama and your sissies too, okay!?

Goober love,

Amber-Mae said...

Happy Blogaversary! And poor Poppy. Do you think it is caused by the lack of *ahem* squeezing? Ours haven't been cleaned like more than a year & sometimes some sweet smelling juice oozes out. Hee! Anyway, we hope yours heals soon Poppy.

Butt wiggles,
Solid Gold Dancer

Joe Stains said...

Happy Blogaversary! We are sending healing vibes to your fuzzbutt!!

Sunny,Scooter, (sometimes Jamie) said...

Happy Blogoversary! Also, Happy New Year.
We hope your fuzz butt feels much better. Those moms sure do spend alot of time worrying, don't they? Silly humans.

Urban Smoothie Read said...

happy new year to every1...

hope u have a fabulous year ahead with more fun and adventure

Dexter said...

Oh OUCH! You gut your fuzzy butt all squeezed. Bet that was one stink-er-roo, huh? Nothing quite like the old anal gland smell.

Take those antibiotics and keep playing bitey face and you'll be right as rain soon.

Happy bloggie-versary!


Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

oh so sorry to hear about your "ahem" problems!

Barked by here to wish you Happy Blogaversary and also Happy New Year.

No worries on your "problem with your fuzzbutt", I have suffered a similar thing with the old Anal Glands, and the antibiotics cleared it up totally.

Tell your Ma not to stress too much! We are sure it will all be ok!

Although my J sympathises with her on the anxiety stakes.

lots of love and licks,
Marvin xxxxxxxxxxx

Niamh said...

Congratulations on a year of blogging. I always enjoy seeing what you Airedales are up to.

Sorry about your condition. I hope the antibiotics do their job and you are fine soon.

Here's to a happy and healthy New Year!

Your friend

Hollie and Janie said...

I hope that that fuzzy hiney of yours heals super fast and that you get a good report when you go back for your check-up!!

Lady Kaos said...

Happy bloggaversary!!!!!
I learned this weekend that Moms freak out no matter what you say to them. I think it's number one on their list of duties: #1 Freak out about any sign of pain or sickness your furkid has. #2 Not give enough treats or snacks.
Hope your next v-e-t visit has some good results!

Stanislaw said...

Big Pupi freaks out any time someone tried to look at his fuzzy bum. He won't even let mom shave his tail down without screaming and after a while it looks like a pony tail! Perhaps you can teach him some of your fuzzbutt manners?

Feel better soon!

Hey Pals,

Thank you for visiting and reading about our adventures. When we saw the Georgia sign on our way home, we told Dogdad we had 'dale friends in Georgia -- but he said "Next time!!!" Since he had the steering wheel in his big paws, we had no choice but to listen.

Poppy, we hope your fuzzbutt problem gets better -- let us know how you're doing, OK?

Lots of wirey aka terrier love,

Jake and Just Harry

William Tell said...

Sorry about that gland thing. I hear those are very painful. Glad you're able to get it taken care of at the vet.

And congratulations on one year of blogging! We enjoy your blog. :)

Happy Tails,
