Lady Buckethead


Milking it rather. The blur in the bottom left is a rapidly wagging tail ( intact, we requested it be left that way even before she was born, why deny a dog a fundamental form of self-expression?)
Pick me up and cuddle me, even though I weigh nearly 30 lbs.
The bucket has been found to be a useful battering ram against the shins of humans not doing what you want quickly enough, and sets up an interesting wave motion in conjunction with the wagging tail when the dog is accelerating.
Back to the v-word place tomorrow, perhaps to have stitches replaced. Pooch herself is in rather overwhelming good spirits, with overabundant energy from lack of exercise and being the centre of our devoted concern and attention.
We, and our bank balance, are in tatters.

You two sound like the exhausted parents of a sick child, who thankfully is on the mend.

Poor you. But such a cute widdle doggie!

(heh)

Oh, how cute, though! Yes, Ingrid has determined how to make the best use of the cone as battering ram. They are very smart, those dogs. Have us thoroughly trained.

Thanks all.
I suppose she is on the mend, it all seems rather never ending. Though her spirits were good, the wound wasn't really healing, and now she's come back from another anaesthetised session having the stitches redone, all zonked out and bandaged (though showoing an interest in food again already). The hope's really now all in the antibiotics, but at least it means we don't have to do any more wound cleaning sessions for a couple of days...

She is such a lucky girl to have you two to love her!

I'm glad to hear she's doing better, Lucy. Hopefully, if she can have a couple of days where nobody has to mes with her ears now, they'll mend a little better.
