Funny, I Don't Feel Any Smarter...

On Jan. 24th Mom and Dad took me in to the vet really early in the morning to get "tutored." Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't "tutored" mean being taught something? I must be really talented because whatever I learned, I learned during a good long nap! Apparently learning is really hard work, though, because I woke up feeling kinda sore around my winky and on my left front paw. Mom says that what I learned was how not to add to the pet overpopulation problem. Ummm....okay....What I think I really learned is that Mom and Dad are really, really nice after a tutoring session at the vet. I got lots of treats and cottage cheese for two weeks afterward!

I guess Mom and Dad thought the tutoring took a lot out of me, too, because they haven't taken me for a walk in two weeks!!! HELLO! MOM? DAD? I really miss my daily walks and the fan club that awaits me at the school!!

Mom says I could go for walks again, but now it's too cold here. I don't know about that; I like the cold! But I have to admit that fancy new haircut the vet gave my front paw makes it a little cold in the snow. Mom says that -25 is a little too cold for walks. Whatever, Mom! Grow some fur and toughen up, I say!

Oh well, I'm sure I'll be seeing my fans again soon. And, as they say, absence makes the heart grow fonder :)-

Off to spread some Saintly love to my family!

Saint Schnuffles,

***Mom's Note*** Mudge doesn't have his visit to the vet quite right, but he's so proud of his "lesson" and his fancy paw do that I don't have the heart to correct him! He was, as you've figured out, neutered. But, at the same time he was under for that, he had a dew claw that kept growing back removed. To make sure it was all gone and there was no chance of regrowth, the vet actually took out the entire bone section. So, Mudge was restricted from walks and climbing a lot of stairs for two weeks. This, of course, meant that I had to sleep in the living room with him since our bedroom is upstairs! Oh well, he's well worth any inconvenience :)- He came home on antibiotics and pain pills because of the foot surgery, so that's why he was getting cottage cheese three times a day. Now he seems to think he should keep getting it. He's stopped chewing his glucosamine tablets...I think he's hoping I'll put them in cottage cheese, or at least peanut butter! He weighed 98 pounds at his vet visit, so he's getting to be quite a big boy!
