On the fix

Papa and I went to see Dr. Z today. He was most pleased with my eyes. He showed Papa how to clean the incisions, apparently Mum was being too gentle. I could have lived without that demonstration!

I have to go back again on the 24th to have the stitches removed, assuming Mum isn't having puppies that day. BOL! Papa says that's the day the biped puppy is supposed to arrive. (I don't care what anyone says, I'm not sharing my toys!)

After our little outing Papa went to see a friend near by and had my antler fixed. The ends were getting kind of jagged and there was a good 7 inches of antler just being wasted! Papa's friend cut off the sharp ends with his fancy saw, and now my antler is just like new! I had the best chew this afternoon.

Mum and I went for a short walk tonight, it was very warm. When we got home I got a good drink from the hose. Last night was so warm she hosed me down before our walk. It really makes a big difference. And by the time we got home I was almost dry! That's my stay cool tip ;)

Ok, going to chill on the patio. I wonder who will walk by tonight?



  1. Glad you are feeling a bit better sweetie. Bet you felt good to get hosed down. Mom and pops will take care of your eye balls

  2. oh you darling boy. you'll be good as new before you know it. i'd tell you to get plenty of rest but i can see you don't need to be reminded of that :)

  3. I'm glad the surgery went so well.

  4. Our mom would have been very squeemish about being too rough on your eyes too, Finn.
    We love antlerz!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  6. Oh hope you are feeling better and better by the day!

  7. Hi Finn, my brother Owen had to go to the vet to have a patch of skin removed. The vet removed the suspicious area so we're waiting for the biopsy to come back. Meanwhile, he has a rack of stitches too. My dad saw them for the first time yesterday because he was away when the surgery happened and he's still a little "freaked out". Silly dad. We're thinking good thoughts for you Finn.

    1. Thanks Buddy! Good luck to Owen. Update coming soon.
