I'm Home.....with My Personal Lampshade

Hello! Guess what? I'm at home! Let me tell you exactly what happened at the vet:

Well, I got to the kennel/vet and I was already not very happy....My humans took me to the place behind bars AGAIN! And imagine, when I thought it couldn't get any worse, they gassed me and did 'surgery' and when they were done, I was wearing that big plastic lampshade thing and my paw hurt! First they had a bandage on my paw, so I couldn't see what they had done, but then they took it off, and I have string in my skin! Wow, I'm sorry, I must have just totally disgusted sincere apologies. Anyway, I'm sorry, I must have disgusted you with the picture as well, but that's my paw...they took off the funny "bump"-it's not cancerous, whatever that means, they said it was a 'fatty tumor'...I'm guessing that means a bump made of fat. It's off now, and the only drawback is I wear that dumb cone...I'm so
embarrassed! I can't change it, I humans do take if off me when they can watch me to make sure I don't pull out the stitches, and I'm fine, but I have to wear it at night...well, at least it's clear! I can see! And man, when my humans picked me up, I was so happy to see them, I forgot about the cone! A human friend of mine said "The cone is the lampshade, you're the lightbulb!", and I kind of like that because people are smart when they have lighbulbs above their heads, so I take that as a compliment.
Talk to you all soon!

Hello, just a quick visit

Hello, doggies! I'm here at the kennel! They FINALLY let me on to the Internet! I had forgotten to have my human mom sign papers that I could go on, and there was a big line, so FINALLY the line died down and I convinced those people to let me on...I don't have much to say...they gave me this gas stuff to make me sleepy, and then they did something to my leg, and now my bump is gone...well, I'm assuming it is because of the slight pain and the big, humongous cone over my head...humans, humans, this hunk of plastic supposed to be a fashion statement?!? Well, I'm surviving, I guess...phase two is next Wednesday----BATH TIME! I'll show pictures...maybe, if my Benny-boy is lucky, they'll give me a cute bandanna to show off...I'll look just SO MUCH cuter! Well, I have to sign off now, darn chihuahua is behind me in line and is doing that oh-so-annoying, high pitched yap...darn dog...No offense to all you chihuahuas out there...Enjoy the picture of me in my better times, guys! Until next week!

I JUST noticed, if you look at my front paw in the picture you can see the bump...except it grew since that picture, which was taken last summer...but you get the idea.

Playing with Tennis Ball

Oh, forgot to say one thing, this is a video my sister took while she was playing with me...she did a bad job taping, she kept making it sound all windy and stuff...she says sorry. Anyway, enjoy the video!

Spring, Yogurt, and Big, Canvas Boxes

I'm here, doggies! Sorry I take so long to post! You CANNOT imagine how hard it is to get my human off the computer! But now she's off, for a minute, so I have a bit to post. First of all, Happy Spring! Spring has sprung here in our neck of the woods. We had some snow last Sunday, but it melted quick. The first picture is of me in our stream. Now that all this snow melted, we have a big stream and lots of little streams everywhere. I don't like swimming in big bodies of water, but I like the shallow stream! The second is of....*sniff*, canvas boxes. That's what they look like to me, anyway...I think they're called bags in real life, but I'll call them canvas boxes. Anyway, I know that whenever my humans get those out, I smell trouble. Whenever they come out they put tons of stuff in them, and then one morning I hop in the car, eager for a ride, but we end up at the vet's office. Yup, I think I have a kennel visit ahead of me. This happened last year, too. They went off to some warm place called Florida, and left me here to suffer. Can you believe it?! Plus, I heard that not only am I staying at the kennel, I'm getting 'surgery'. *GASP!* What is surgery? I don't think it's that nice...something about a bump on my leg that's getting bigger...anyway, the vet people are taking the little bump off my leg, and then I have to wear a-a---a cone! DOUBLE GASP! Holy wiener schnitzel! OH MY GOSH! To show all you doggies what a cone is, I borrowed a picture from another site. Here it is:

Terrible, isn't it?! I'm quite worried...but yogurt is good. That's the last picture. My mom finished a container of yogurt, and put it on the ground and said "Abby, do you like yogurt?". I was like HOLY CANOLI! I didn't even know what it was, but if my mom puts it on the ground, I'm not dumb enough to turn away from it! So that's me eating yogurt. Anyway, I have to go, I think tomorrow is the day I got the the vet's...*sigh*....I heard a rumor of a bath afterward...You'll see pictures when I get back, which is (according to my scribe) next Wednesday, the twenty-third. Talk to you then, puppers!

Actually, just so you know, my kennel does come with free Internet access, so I will be on to comment to you guys, but I can't post because they don't have pictures. :)

P.S..OH GOLLY, GOLLY, GOLLY, I just looked at Ben's post, and I have to let you guys know, I have a new boyfriend named Ben...I like to call him Benny. He's sweet, and handsome...and HE won't quit blogging, like my exboyfriend, Boomer, did. :D Talk to you soon!
