This Diary entry will be written with embarassment and some pain.
The story begins yesterday when I was licking my butt a lot so Momma and Daddy looked at it. (How embarassing!) My butt looked normal so they decided they'd keep and eye on me and if I kept up the licking they would take me to the Vet to get my anal glands looked at. (Although I've never had issues with them before!)
Momma:"Mini, let's go outside!"
Me: *Waddle *Waddle *Waddle..
Momma: *Cringe.. "Honey hurry, come look it Mini's butt!"
Daddy: *Comes running.. *Looks at butt, "EWWWUGHHH! Call the Vet!"
So we go to the Vet, (Thank dogness he was open on a Sunday!), and apparently one of my anal glands exploded!! (He actually said "ruptured") So that explained the cringe worthy, oozy bump on my butt this morning.
I am very mad at the Vet. He shaved my butt, put his finger in places he shouldn't, poked 2 needles in my butt and even had the nerve to say if this happens again I would have to get butt surgery! Did I mention he did ALL of that stuff PLUS cut my nails AND did that in front of Kiki!!!! EMBARASSING!! I was VERY mad and I whined and wiggled A LOT!
... to make matters worse my butt is leaking goo AND I have a cone of shame. I NEVER needed a cone before and I HATE it. I bit the cone when Momma and the Vet tried to put it over my head. Then Momma called me a baby and said Kiki was tougher than me. How rude.
We got home, Momma bought me dried chicken treats, she wont take the cone off AND I walked into the door frame.. the couch.. the stairs.. another door frame.. and my bed. Momma exploded, (aka "ruptured"), into laughter each time.
Wish me luck. We're going back to the V-E-T once I am done my medicine, probably next week.

OMD!Miss Mini! I feel so sorry for you! I never had anal gland issues until about age 3. Since then the Vet has done the embarrassing draining of several times......Let's just say
hooman fingers shouldn't go into such private places.
I never heard of the explosion you had. The cone too!
I do hope Mom bought lots of treats! You have earned many!
Lots of extras for Mini watching and Mom laughing!Does the medicine at least taste good??????????
Will pray for you sweetie....will watch for progress reports.
Hugs and kisses,mazy
oh Mini....I've never heard such a thing. Are you sure your sister didn't put dynamite up your butt? I hope you're okay now. Mom says have your mom and dad get you one of those soft cones - that looks like an inner tube. It's easier and you can deflate it a little so it won't be hard to sleep in it. Get well soon!
I sure hope this tail ends with no further recurrences, YUCK. POTP to you!
oh noes...sure hope that you feel better soon, keep us posted
Aw, so sorry Mini, about your butt.
I am impressed that you can lick your butt doe coz I cant reach mine!! I tries, but that why i am always asking my Mom to wipe my hinnie when she in barkroom.
Hope me dont get explodin butt too.
Mom said another fur haded that, and the vet had to "milk' the furs butt! EEEWW (and OOWWW) guess it supposed to squeeze itself when we pooh?
luv and licks
Ooops!!! I had a thing explode on my side once, but nevfur on my butt. Banners is right about those tube-cones, they're way more comfy. Try to look less comical and more woebegone when you run into things, so your mommy and daddy will feel sorry fur you and give you treats instead of laughing!
Aww Mini Im really sorry that you have to have the cone of shame! I feel your pain! Sounds like an awful day, I hope your feeling better soon!
