Hi my furry friends. I'm feeling better. Thanks for all the good vibes you'all must be sending. I can't play with my stuffies, they are either to big for this lampshade thing, or I want to run with them and mom has a fit and yells "no" and "stop." I just wanna play. She felt sorry for me, and saved me the stuffing box from dinner. Well it was kinda fun, just the goofy lampshade gets in the way. Yes, my paws are still wrapped. Since a few of you have been asking, my dew claws had some issues. When mom got me as a little pup (8 weeks old) the breeder told mom that her policy was to have her vet remove them (or that's what they thought they were doing). Mom did not know anything about dew claw removal and she feels bad enough about me having to go thru this. (And please don't be upset at mom. She knows she took a chance when she got me from a breeder in another state, and she does not regret her decision to get me and she would never send me back becasue of this. (Some really mean people actually told her to return me because I was defective. How can people say somethine like that and make her cry. Mom fell in love with me the moment she saw me.) Like the vet said, it's a chance you take, and no matter what, he called me "A definite keeper." Mom did inform the breeder for this for future pups.
My vet said the dew claw removal, or attempt to, was a very poor job. My right paw had no claw, but there was this nub on my paw and you could feel some kind of bump under it. My left paw still had the claw, and it grew curled into my skin and would get infected. My vet felt it was best for me to have them both removed while he was "fixing" me. The bandages have to stay on until I go for my checkup to get my stichnes out.
I do want to go on record as saying "I was not broken." And this fixing involved stiches in my tummy and I can't jump on my sofa or look out my window or bother Missy. No fair. Missy gets to lounge in the sun room and go outside. But I'm treated like a princess. So aroo roo roo.
Now, I did make mom feel sorry for me. I have so wanted to sleep curled in my doughnut. Oh how I missed that. I've been trying, but my tail just could not get to my nose. So she took that goofy lampshade off. She said just for a while, while she can keep an eye on me so I don't lick or bite something I'm not supposed to. And it goes back on later, but I can live with that. Oh, this is gonna be a great husky nap. I'm making the most of it.
Thanks again for your well wishes.
Husky Hugs to all, Mayamarie.
