"You change your life, by changing your heart."

Hi my very dearest dearest DWB friends,

I have taken control of my blog back. I don't want to scare any doggie, kitty, hammie or pawrent, but you gotta see why Mommy has been calling me Frankie, IE...Frankenstein. I hope you don't barfs when you see my nasty scare. Thank goodness my hair grows fast. That red spot right below my surgeon's finger is a razor burn.

I couldn't get away fast enough from that place, even though they was very nice to me there. I was very disappointed cause I couldn't put my pretty harness back on and I had to go out in public naked. I was so embarrassed, people was pointing at me but Mommy said they just thought it was a shame that a pretty wirehair like me had to be cut up like that. I gotta go naked until my stitches come out.

Can ya see how sleepy I was? Mommy had to carry me out to the car cause I was wimpering, but they said I would for a few days. Mommy was so worried but I only did that until the next day.

Mommy took this picture before she carried me into the house. Guess what we did then. Mommy turned the cure on (her heating pad), picked me up, kicked her feet up in the recliner and knocked out. It was 4 pm when we got home and it was 8:30 pm when we woke up. It was wonderful!!

The doctor made us very happy when she said I didn't have to be crated as long as Mommy could keep me from jumping for 1o days. Well let me tell you that I have only jumped up once, into my chair, while Mommy wasn't watching me. It's like this....she has kept my leash on when we are in the front of the house and when she takes me out to do my business and at night she holds the end of the leash in her hand so I can't jump off the bed. Poor Mommy hasn't slept much since all this started. My poor Mommy, I love her so much!

I've been a good girl and except for fighting Mommy every time she had to give me my pain medicine, it's nasty you know, I have been perfect. Thank goodness I only had to take it twice a day for 3 days. The doctor told Mommy I couldn't take a bath for 2 weeks until all my stitches fall out. It was very difficult, well almost impossible, for Mommy to get me to unclench my jaw long enough to shallow that nasty liquid stuff. Mommy said she got more of it on my face than in my mouth. now my beard is all sticky. I hate baths!! Maybe I could get Frankie Furter to take me out in his boat and I can just jump into the lake instead of taking a bath!!

My doctor said I could go to Aunt Judy's doggie play date last Saturday, if I was quite, didn't try to chase squirrels and NOT JUMP, so we took my bed with us. Here are some pictures of me being quite. Hey! nobody said I had to be stone still! She didn't say I couldn't sit up or even walk around as long as I had my leash on.

I just gotta tell you about that sausage shaped thing behind me in the top and bottom pictures here. It was a pressie from Paula just for me. It's a doggie sausage with real chicken meat and beef liver. She even brought one for all the doggies to share and they said it was Yummylicious!! I wouldn't know cause Mommy wouldn't let me have any since I was still taking that nasty medicine.

I was allowed to walk around...on a short leash. I did get kinda tired so I went into the house where th A/C was and got into a crate for a couple of hours. My buddy, Bandit, came inside with me and laid in front of crate while I slept. Wasn't that sweet?

OK....remember I said it was a "doggie play date" not a "dachsie play date"? That's cause some of my other friends came too. Mommy says I should introduce them to you.

and her brother, Moe

Just to let you know, this post should have been done a long time ago, at least 3 hours ago, but Mommy had to stop and watch "Dancing With The Stars" the finals. Her favorite didn't win but he did come in second. So because it's way past Mommy's bedtime, I'm just gonna show you some random shots of my friends, having a good time. If you notice, I am not in any of these pictures cause I was doing what the doc or ordered.

Be back soon with more pictures. Night, Night!!

Love, kisses and {{{huggies}}}....Mona

Wow - look at all those pals collected together - very nice furiends you have, Mona.

Your scar is a lot like Phantom's only turned the opposite way. It looks like you have lots of skin there to make the incision heal well. Poor Phantom didn't have very much skin and that was why they were so worried about it healing. But it did and we were happy for that.

Keep being such a good puppy and before long you will be running and jumping and good as new.

Scout and Freyja said...

You just has to forgive your momma fur not getting your post up 'cause she needed to watch Dancing with the Stars. Our momma lets us outside and inside and then asks us to be really quiet when she watches that show. We think that she has the 'hotties' for that Mr. Maks - go figure, why does she even look at him when she has us!
