Last week my metal staples really started to hurt last week and I was not feeling very well. Mom took me to the vet, and they tried to take them all out: that REALLY hurt and I didn't want to roll over to show them my tummy. It took 3 people to roll me over. I guess my incision had grown shut over some of the staples. Even after they gave me something to put me to sleep, I woke up with 11 staples still inside me. That's where they are going to stay, the vet said.
But now I feel GREAT! I can run and jump around, and I have been able to give the smack-down to Dora in the back yard. I am still getting pills wrapped in cheese, so I don't get any infection while the incision completes healing.
Mom and Dad built a privacy fence all around the back yard, so now I have a big play area to chase Dora around in. She still chews on my ears and neck, but I'm starting to really like her. When she sleeps in her kennel, I sleep on my dog bed in the same room so I can keep an eye on her. This morning she was sleeping on the bed and I thought it looked so comfy that I jumped up there and slept with her.
I also found out the hammock is really fun to sit in with Dad and Dora. I like the rocking back and forth. Life is good!
