Mitch Is Home

Mitch came home yesterday. Mom and Dad both went to pick him up late afternoon. He came home with 3 "sleepy" pills to keep him quiet so he can heal more quickly without popping open his booboo! And he came home with a lampshade too and so far he hasn't had it on his head! DARN! Actually mom is wondering how you work the stupid thing! I'm sure if he needs it, she can figure it out pretty quickly!

Mitch was hungry when he got home but we were cautioned to feed him small portions so he wouldn't lose his dinner all over the floor - and the same for the water! He did just fine - no pukes!
He stayed quiet pretty much. Boy, those pills pack a mean punch! I wish mom could get a lifetime prescription of those and give him one every day! It would sure save me many nips on my legs and face!
That's a good boy - swallow that pill! ummmmmmmmm
Overnight in the crate went well - no noise from the monster and he was pretty alert this morning at 4AM! Mom washed his blankie for him so he was pretty happy about that. He loves it nice and warm just out of the dryer! I'm sure Mitch is dying to dig into his breakfast! He hasn't had a decent meal in over 24 hours! Yup, he's happy about that too!

Mom and I will be heading out for our walkie soonish. I hope Mitch isn't too disappointed that he can't go too. The vet said he had to keep a low profile for a few days.

Thank you all so much for all of your sweet notes concerning Mitch's surgery!
We're so glad he's home and so is he!

Until next time..............

Love ya lots,

Maggie

Maggie,

Please put Mitch on! Mitchy- I am not sure if your eyes can focus or not, but I loved those pills also. I just gobbled them up! I got 6 of them. Momma didn't even need to put them in my food!

I also came home and was ready to eat! I was soooo hungry. I have to tell you the day after you couldn't even tell I have been through life "altering" surgury.

Love

Allegra and Saffie!

Good boy Mitch for not needing your lampshade! If mum does need to use it Maggie, tell her his collar threads through the loops. I need to share the pain of having to wear it!

Yay Mitch! Glad the surgery went well and sounds like you're well on the road to recovery. And, I always say, we don't need bits to make us real men, right?

Gus said...

Maggie my dear. Enjoy the pills while you can...Teka was a lot nicer with her pills after her surgery. Mom was so impressed she asked the vet if Teka could have a refill, and the vet said no. Poor muzzer.
Glad that Mitch is doing well.

I hope Mitch is back to his old self soon :) It sounds like he's a strong healthy pup. He's lucky to avoid that lampshade. Mom has two of mine in the closet (ugh!) that she's saving. PS: The lampshade goes on his head the other way, just in case...
