Firstly this picture below is specially dedicated to the
Yesterday when I got home from the Vet, Mom told me that all my buddies in cyberspace were saying that I was a STUFFIE who was falling apart!
Well, I am NOT! Definitely NOT!
(Any Stuffie-surgeons out there - don't get any ideas!)
I am a Golden Retriever...who bounces back in hard times!
When I heard what you were all saying, I decided to scratch that stent off and get myself a decent bandage! My Vet obliged me.
I want to suggest to Doggie-Mommies out there that when us doggies have operations and want to scratch, then perhaps they can consider 'bandaging!"
My mom had seen somewhere how the lovely doggie-buddies from "Tellington Touch" would wrap 'aggressive' dogs up to calm them down. Now remember, I am NOT an aggresive dog!!!
I simply didn't want to have my friends think I am a stuffie!
This bandage (under Vet's approval and bandaged by the nurse) worked wonders! She did it in a half figure 8 around my front leg and over the surgery site. I had a wonderful night's sleep! I am comfortable and content! The bandage makes me feel secure and keeps my wound site intact....
Woof! It works really well!!!
Anyway, here I am - back with my pack - and yes, I have them all waiting on me and catering for my every need! (I gave some of your suggestions to my Mom and she also allowed me on the bed for a short while...pssst...thanks guys!) Mom even bought me a KONG!
