You Asked For It

Well, you asked for it....Many of you keep asking for pictures of my boo boo.....
I am healing really well,  This is me Still on Bed Rest.
 And here is the boo boo that is healing really well.  Dr. Eddie did such a good job, but he said the inside stitches need more time to be rested.  So, yep.....I am still supposed to be quiet and still and it is really hard.
 But at least My Vickie can take me for drives in the car.  That makes it all a little bit easier, but I know that My Vickie is gonna  meet with Goose and some of my other friends tomorrow and Saturday WITHOUT me.  That is two weekends in a row.  Bummer
 And to make it worse, We Got Snow today.  Snow, my friends....SNOW and I cannot go out and play in it. I am so jealous that everyone else can go enjoy it.  Abby likes to capture the snowflakes in her mouth.  She is pretty good at it.
 Annie just sits in it and looks pitiful.  
 Some of our other guests for the day also enjoy it like Dougal.
 Here is Annie again with Pastor Michelle who has started helping us out here at Canine Country Club.  She is learning how to take care of things so My Vickie and I an go camping this year.  Knowing someone as great at Pastor Michelle and Goose are watching over the place will make My Vickie less worried to leave.
 Zoey got cold and came inside after playing in the snow.  I love her profile.
And of course James Dean, who is the nicest dog that comes here to day care (remember he brought me flowers and a blanket after my surgery.  Nice isn't it) who sleeps in such a cute way.   

Before I go, I just wanted to thank everyone again for all your POTP wishes and to all of you who sent me get well cards.  I consider myself the luckiest est est est dog in the world.......

Oh Bert!
Yous the bestest! Me is glad yous is healing up so good.
Your stitches look just like Cinnamon's when she had her gardenectomy. She would not stay as still as she was supposed to, but she healed up good. Me is so happy yous is feeling better.

Prancer Pie said...

Dood, it looks good! Just think of the great story you can tell all the young 'uns around the day care! We'll keep purrin fur ya. xoxo

GOOSE said...

It's going to be a cool scar. But I am sure your handsome fur will cover it soon.
I sure will miss you AGAIN our our weekend walk. I'll run and jump twice as much just for you.
When you and Your Vickie go camping does that mean I am at Daycare with MOM or could I come with you guys? I love camping and backpacking.
Keep getting better buddy.

Ellen said...

You are such a brave poochie! Very proud of how well you trying to rest and every day you are healing better and better.

Sending you hugs and kisses Bert....
Ellen, Tucker and Stewie

I am so glad your booboo is healing so nice. Its getting closer and closer to when you can go out and play. Have you tried Solitaire?? I don't know what that is, but I heard somewhere it is good to pass the time

We didn't know that about Collies but we suspected it. I wish I could take Reville but they'd never let her go. A&M is big on tradition and they have had a Reville for many years now. Glad Bert is doing better! Those stitches look ouchy!


harrispen said...

I wish I could come help at the Country Club. Who wouldn't want to spend time with all those dogs? Looks like Pastor Michelle likes getting kisses. I hope Goose doesn't get jealous.

Glad to hear you are healing well. Keep up the good work with the resting.


Murphy said...

Ouch Bert! Glad you are feeling better though. Yes, Goose and his Mom would do an excellent job taking care of things while you and Miss Vickie went camping. I really like the photos of your friends too!

KB said...

Oh Bert, that is quite an incision but it's healing! Keep being a good boy so that you can romp and frolic later this year!

I love Zoey's profile too! And, James Dean always makes me smile.

Stay relaxed, Bert!

So glad you are home and doing well.

Dude, if you were a girl, we'd think you'd just been spayed! ;-) Glad to hear that you are healing - and that you are being patient and resting and doing all the stuff you are supposed to, to get better quick! Hey, um, not to make you jealous or anything, but we've got some snow pics... You can live vicariously through us, if that helps! (We got about 10 inches last night, and we're supposed to get more tonight!) Keep getting better, dude!

Bert your ouchie looks scary! Please do not hurt yourself. Continue to rest and heal.

The Thuglets said...

Rest those paws.

Dear Bert,

your stitches are looking good. How do you get in the car? Does your Vickie have to to carry you? Milk it while you can, I say! I hear ice cream and peanut butter helps with healing.

Have a great weekend :) x

P.S. Your friend Montana looks like he just saw an alien.

Charlotte said...

My great heroe! Such a big scar - but I'm so happy that it's healing up so good! Be patient! Time will fly and I'm always thinking of you!
Sending you all my love, kisses and hugs Your Charlotte

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Hang in there, Bert. And it sure looks like you're not having to wear the Cone, so that's a blessing you can count. Won't take long for all your gorgeous fur to grow back and cover that scar.

The Furries of Whisppy said...

The wound looks like it is healing nicely. We know it must be REALLY hard to stay quiet and indoors especially since it snowed! We're sending you lots of love and for the days to zip by so you can be outside again.

Bassetmomma said...

Your doctor did do a good job Bert. But that is still a nasty scar! I'm so sorry you can't go out and enjoy the snow like all your friends but at least you get to go for car rides and just think you get to go camping this summer! Yay! Rest up, buddy!

Bassetmomma said...

By the way, I love that pal of yours James Dean!! What a sweetie! :)

Hi Bert
I'm so glad you are healing well.
Keep being a good boy !

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

We wish we could come visit you, Bert, and place the gentlest of snooter smoochies on your head to help make you feel better. Yourboo boo looks just like the nasty one Phantom had after the big surgery on his chest. It does take time to heal, but you will be doing so much better soon.

Have a restful weekend.

Amber DaWeenie said...

Your booboo looks ouchy! Was that tennis ball really worth it?

You'll be out runnin' in that snow in no time. For now...just rest!

Patrice and Higgins said...

I am so glad that you are healing! I wished the snow would have held out until you are able to run and play!


Shawnee the Shepherd said...

Hey Bert! Looks like you woz spayed! Did you has them put a zipper in so if'n, dog forbid, there be a next time it be easier to get out?

Mr. Pip said...

OUCH! That looks like it hurts! I am so glad you are feeling better. Just rest up and you will soon be back out playing with your friends.

Your pal, Pip

snoopy@snoopysdogblog said...

Hey Bert,

So happy you're healing up well and I can't imagine how frustrating it must be not being allowed to play in the SNOW, especially when you know your Vickie is out playing - do you give her the 'sniff over' when she comes home?

I think it's for the best though buddy and you'll be up and running around in no time….

Take it easy,

Your pal Snoopy :)

Sarge said...

Hey Bert!
Wow, I'm so glad you are healing well! I know it stinks, but you've got to stay rested for a little longer. Your ouchie looks good. I wish I could be there with you...we'd take some great naps together!
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

H Ski said...

Wow that is quite a cut. I hope you are feeling better. And just think you will be ready to play just in time for spring and summer.

Cinnamon said...

We are so happy you are getting back to normal and at least go for car rides.
Get Well Soon!


Get better soon Bert. We love you. I am sure all your canine friends miss you too.
With love

The Army of Four said...

Anyways, I is glad you is gettin all betters. Hopefully da time will pass by quickly. I knows it aint no fun at alls bein' a convelscent.

Yuor Vickie is lucky to has Goose's mom to help...maybe I should come campin' at your place.


STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Howdy Bert, your boo boo doesn't look too bad now cause we know your mum is making you rest. You look so sweet sleeping. We wish you dreams filled with Charlotte and yummy treats to eat. Hugs and healing slobber to you Bert. Take care mate. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Tanner and Beth said...

It does look like your boo boo is healing well. I am so happy. When I had one like that, I got ... dare I say it... a nasty infections.

But then again, I was just a puppy and got into some mischief and... well that is probably where it came from.

So stay in bed and heal well, my friend. Camping season is coming.

Doggy Kisses,

Rubie and Poots (her Mum) said...

Hi Bert,

I can't imagine how hard it is to not play....I feel for you Buddy. But if you do this part will get to the playing part quicker!!

I'm so glad your Vickie has help so you two can go camping again. My peeps bought a caravan on Thursday so in about 4 months time (when we get it) we are planning to go camping too!! We can compare notes!

Tail Wuggles, Rubie

NCmountainwoman said...

How lucky you are to have a wonderful friend like Goose's mom! Now you can spend your healing time thinking about the fun you will have camping with your Vickie.

Honest, a very short while even the memory of your misfortune will be gone and you will be romping all over and swimming and playing in the snow. Honest.

2browndawgs said...

Never fear Bert, you will heal. I had the same incision and now you can hardly see it. :)


Lassiter Chase and Benjamin said...

I hear snow is over-rated anyway! We hardly got any snow this year so far -- we don't seem to miss it one bit.

Curt Rogers said...

Oh dear! I really did miss a lot! I'm sorry to see your boo boo and to hear you have to lay low for awhile. It reminds me of Duncan's Great Yarn Crisis of 2006, when he ate all that yarn and was split right down the middle to save his life. It was terrible to see him so out of it but he got better and we've walked many, many miles since. You'll be up and at 'em again soon! Be strong, Bert!
