Skinny Pup went to the dogtur on Friday for a check up. Here is what Skinny Pup had to say about it on Aunty Karen's facebook page:
"I got an A+!!!!! I've put on 3 pounds, infection is way down, still need to stay off the bad leg and let it heal more. Doc took me off pain meds as it was obvious I'm trying to run, jump and play so in pain free. My BFF James Lindstrom checked me out and his sidekick Annie Robison too. They both received lots of skinny pup kisses for all their help and concern. Doc said that everywhere he goes...coffee shop, card game...folks ask after me! Wow. Makes me feel great! Even Doc... seemed happy with my progress. Just gotta respect the healing process and stay off stairs, no jumping, and no playing with other dogs AND that sure is hard to resist since my house is full of fun furry friends. Even Tiger our cat likes me.
I'll post a few more pics of my walks today. I don't put weight on my leg cause when doc showed me the pin in there I knew I better take it slow. Skin is going to be scrubbed tomorrow. Me and mom are getting in the shower and I bet I get her more wet than me wink emoticon. I'm cheeky like that.
Life is good today as they say and I hope it has been for all of you too. If not, you're in my prayers. Keep hope alive!! If I can recover anyone can. See you peeps tomorrow and thanks for your love and support. Signed Skinny Pup quoting Zac Brown lyrics."
We should note that Skinny Pup must indeed be feeling better because here was his Saturday post:
"Who ME????? Well folks I learned another word, BAAAAD Boy! Yep I was enjoying my freedom in the house and the moment struck. What's a boy to do? Pee!!!! Mom said "we don't do that, we're English". Back to my condo/crate for my timeout session. Think there may be a few more of these in my future.
Enjoy this beautiful Saturday! Hoping the memory is short with mom. wink emoticon signed, skinny pup behind closed doors."
Needless to say, when everybody saw the associated picture (Those eyes!!!) they ALL told Aunty K to let Skinny Pup out of puppy prison and she did. I think his "time out" lasted 2 nano seconds and then he was back in Aunty Karen's lap. Way to harness the power of social media, Skinny Pup!!!
Still waiting to hear who got wetter in the shower ... my guess is Skinny won that round, but I will let you know if I hear any final results.
