Here is some news about Pawppy's surgery today.
There was a bit of a wait at the hosp. this am, but then pawppy was taken back, about 15min later than first thought. He was in the OR about 90 minutes, then the surgeon came out to talk to growlmy, he also showed her a picture of the old joint. There was NO cartilage left on it at all.
He said that he thought this was caused by a shallow joint 'cup' a congenital malformation.
Pawppy then told everyone in the room that he had been having a soreness there most of his life...go figure.
Maybe he thought this was just how he was until recently when it got to be unbearable, and likely worsened by that fall he had 4 years ago.
He had a lot of severe pain right after the op, but once that got under control he did much better.
He had a good liquid lunch...YUCK!
Then he had some rest until before supper.
Well, when the nurses let him sit on the side of the bed, he felt very faint, so it didn't last long...
But he was eating a solid real food dinner, and looking 100% better at 9pm than earlier this afternoon.
So that is progress...and he isn't using morphine anymore, just a more ordinary analgesic.
Tomorrow the PT & OT peeps will assess him and design a 'plan'.
Well, thanks for your thoughts and prayers and my tired growlmy is going off to bed!
Tomorrow will be another busy day!

Well pups, I was going to still be here tomorrow, but since growlmy got asked to came and work tomorrow evening, that leaves a lot less time for doing the things she wanted to still do for and with pawppy...his surgery is Monday morning, early.
So I won't be making those pic.mementos starting the 29th...and I do not know when I will be able to open he shop again, but I will, eventually...you will know it when I revert my name-title back to normal, BOL!
There may be a rare one if growlmy has a spare moment, but we are not committing or promising.
Thanks fur understanding.
I will let you know via this diary of pawppy's progress, etc.
Thanks fur the love and pawyers so far, I appawsiate those so much...I feel blessed to have you all as my furends.
Please continue them, they are truly craved!
Now I am letting growlmy get to bed, BOL!

Well pups and peeps.
After not writing anything for a few days, I am a DDP again...BOL! Go figure!
Cooper and his furry gang made me a nice pic, I put it in the biofields of my page. Phew, that is getting to be a long set of pics!
Growlmy saw I was a DDP today, but couldn't let me get on here, GRRR!
She said it was important to make some pics for kitties...what!?! Then she and pawppy went out again doing nonfurry things.
I did guard duty, but since it rained most of the time, there wasn't much to guard...but later I barked at the kitty next door who came out of the house there and when I saw him I ran out to let him know he cannot evfur come into MY yard. So he ran up their tree, BOL! Bandit was out there, too, so we did some fence running.
Prince their goat seems to be in his pen more lately, maybe they got it so he can't climb out anymore.
Well, I have some other woofs to let you all hear.
In about a week Pawppy has to go to the hospital. He is really having trouble walking, so the doctor said he should get better with that, if he gets a total hip replacement. Mr Arthur Rightus has pinched him too hard!
Since appawrently this is a big deal, I won't be around furry much for a (too long) while. Not sure how long, I might be able to check in, make some diary entries to keep you informed, and a few in your own pages, but there will be NO time to make pics for you. That is so hard fur growlmy, because I know she likes to do those for your spawsial occasions.
Well if you get one during these weeks coming up, you will be spawsial indeed!
Growlmy has to be his taxi, rehab coach, doing care, exercises and taking him to physio, and appointments, etc, at least until he is allowed to drive again. Since its the right hip,that may be a while:(
Our den is beginning to look like a rehab unit, with all the 'junk' that growlmy is gathering fur future needs and usage.
Please pawray fur all this to go well...
I will make a note in my name-title to let you know that we are not doing the usual things...something like MJF's Pictureshop-Closed...or similar.
I know I will be missing things, but I know you all understand, too.

Take your pick, pups...which one am I??
Today, growlmy checked the confuser just before she left the den at 7am...she had to take Pawppy to an appointment.
Well, she saw I was a DDP, but there was no time fur her to do anything about it! She wonders why I always get this honor (And a hearty thanks to HQ & Diary Gal...), when she is otherwise occupied, BOL!
Thanks fur all my prezzies, and Cooper and his gang of pirate mateys sent me this nice pic, with a galleon to sail the ocean blue, to seek my bountiful booty! BOL!
THANKS COOPER AND GANG
Well, that takes care of the DDP and the DapperDandyPirate...
Now fur the Dusty Dirty Pooch...
When growlmy came home from being with Pawppy, she still couldn't let me get on here..she had chores to do outside. So she was working there about 6 hours! Sheesh! Well, I found good cause to dig and dig in the far back of our yard...growlmy wishes she had the camera in her hand,but her hands were filled with lawn care tools...my schnooter was no longer white and tan, but a muddy brown!
Then I found another snake, so I was trying to get it, but growlmy wasn't letting me...I barked and barked and dug and dug, to no avail...then when I almost had it, growlmy distracted me, and that slinky snake got away...slithered out of my sight...
Well, then I saw the new kitty next door.OMD! I had to race up and down the fence to try and find a way to access it...but once again our fence is not conducive to my getting out...
And Bandit tried doing fence races with me too!
Well when I got inside, I sure was hot, dusty and dirty!
Ice-cubes are good fur this problem, so I got to crunch some. They aren't bad, but ice-cream would have been better, considering that I was a DDP!
Woof at ya all later.
Avast and Yarghhhh to all my pirate mates!

I got a P-Mail from Sunny. She asked me to post a link fur pups to go to this FB site and vote fur a shelter that she supports.
Here is a link to that page:
Sunny's Shelter Site
Maybe some of you already have, but here is a link to her own diary pages so you can see what this is all about:
Well thanks for reading and helping out!
In other woofs, not too much new here, except that growlmy is off to her work, shortly, so I will do guard duty till pawppy gets home from his work...at least it is beautufur weather, not rainy like yesterday!
Sheesh, a while ago we were begging fur rain...peeps are nevfur happy, BOL!

The other day, I met Schatzi, my LWD stroll pal.
Schatzi is a German term for dearie or something like that....well her mom was not to happy with her little dearie, BOL! She was not white, at least not around her neck and shoulders. She was furry dark brown...and stinky to boot, BOL!
Little Miss Schatzi the not so white, LWD had found herself some delish doo-doo to roll in...OMD
Of course her mom was dressed in nice clean clothes, because she was going out with her friend as soon as her stroll was over...um...well maybe not, because she was going to have to take care of her LWD to get her all clean again...growlmy rightly prophesied a bath in Schatzi's future...BOL!
Growlmy also made sure to ask where that doo-doo was so that I would be led past it on the other side of the street...growlmy is such a pawrty pooper, sometimes!
In other woofs, soon it will be that yearly event of Pirate Day...YARGHHHH!!

You read that correctly, pups!
I thought I was going fur a stroll this morning,but instead growlmy heaved me into the van...in all of my years I have only evfur gotten in there on my own pogo stick jumping legs about 2 or 3 times, BOL! I who can jump like a circus clown with springs will not get into that van...oh well, that is digressing...
So I went fur a road trip of about 20 minutes, over some bumpy roads that were termed as 'rough road' by the signage...even though it was only a ride of about 7 or 8 miles...sigh...but I saw squirrels and all kinds of birds along the way,and even a few dogs...but nothing too exciting like venison beasts, not even any cows or horses, though we did pass by horse farms, I think they were having breakfast in their barns.
Then I was allowed out, and I could tell that there had been a lot of pups walking over that grass and pavement...yup...I was at the dogtor, aka vet.
So furst growlmy let me do my communications on some trees and posts..and then she was evfur so happy that I made a huge doo-doo fur her little baggie, BOL! Why do those dogtors always want to have that stuff, growlmy mostly nevfur gives her baggies to anyone! BOL! She hides them in a big green bin! This one I just made must have been extra spawsial...
I got poked and pinched and prodded...and she even opened my mouth...OMD! What big teeth you have she said, well what did she expect, little mousie teeth, BOL!
She said all was fine, and said my teeth looked really great, for my age...she asked growlmy if my teeth were getting brushed...yes-siree!
She complemented growlmy on her efforts.
That was the I am good part...
But when she was checking out my unmentionables, I grumped and snarked! Hey! nobody is allowed to do that, so I had to remind her...and I said things under my breath when I got those jabs that had been reserved for myself...the nerve!
And then she gave me a treat, well, OK, I furgave her! BOL!
Now I am good to go till the next scheduled visit.
Growlmy was a bit annoyed because I was getting my heartworm medication from there, they gave growlmy a good deal, because they do 'price matching', but they said they no longer are carrying the product I was using, they changed to another...of course more expensive one from a different manufacturer...sigh...so now growlmy has to take a script and send it through to a mail order pharmacy....you would think that if a product is good, why change? Why not carry both? Whatevfur...

A clear path to my doggy bed in the back porch, and another one inside the big den...what a lot of boxes got lugged and jostled today!
The peeps were moving all the unfurbro's 'junk' into the van and car to take to his new apartment, tomorrow.
So now the den looks a lot less like the local storage unit, BOL! And growlmy says she can move about easier, and clean better, too.
So tomorrow I will be on guard duty and not romping around much here in Dogsterland...so I hope that I do not miss too much...sigh...
Woof at you later!!

Growlmy had to get up to...well, you know, BOL...and so she checked the confuser since she knew that the new day would be up in Dogsterland...and wow, I am a DDP again! Haven't written anything since the last time either, BOL!!
Well yesterday I barked my head right off at a hot air balloon that had the nerve to land in the field across the street. OMD! I must have really scared it, because it shriveled up, and the unfurs who were with it, stuck it inside a basket and drove away! BOL!!
Then I got to do 11 1/2 hours of guard duty, since the peeps all went away fur the day. They went to see a baseball game at Commerica Park, the stadium of the Detroit Tigers...and they won! ROAR!!
It was a good way for the peeps to dogabrate the 20th birthday of unfurbro!
Sorry if I missed anything good here...hope you all are well and had great days with your peeps!
Redford and his furmily sent me this nice pic/memento, I will properly post it when growlmy comes home from work...much later, BOL! (...sigh...)
THANKS FOR THIS PIC, REDFORD!
Thanks Redford and your gang of furs!
