Hey! We're Still Here!
been worried about us. Cuz we are just fine. Well, mostly fine, but I'll
get to that later.
We've pretty much just been hanging out on the couch, getting
some much needed R&R.
We even spent some time hanging out on The Crazy Man Who
Lives Next Door's daughter. Her name is Jordan. We love playing
with her almost as much as we love sleeping on her.
Oh, and we both had birthdays! I turned 5, and Gidget is now 6!
She's going to be needing some doggy Geritol real soon.
Unfortunately, we have had a few health problems since we last
talked to everydoggy. But what do you expect, we're pugs. Mine
wasn't that big of a deal. I just had an infection in one of my face
folds, and I had to wear a cone for a week.
Gidget, on the other hand, has not been so fortunate. First she
got an infection in one of her anal glands, and her butt swelled
up like a big red tomato. They had to do emergency surgery on
it. I told Mom & Dad that they should make her wear a cone on
her butt, but they wouldn't go for it.
Right about the time her booty got all healed up, Dad noticed
a bump on her left shoulder. It was right in the same area where
she had a tumor removed a couple of years ago, so off to the Vet
she went again. Sure enough, it was another tumor, so poor
Gidgey had to be operated on again. This is what she looked
like right after the surgery.
And this is what she looked like two weeks later after she had
her stitches removed.
A couple weeks after that, she looked much better, and she
was starting to get a little stir crazy, so Mom & Dad decided
she was well enough to go for a walk.
When we got back from the walk, we noticed that she was
limping a little bit. Sure enough, she had a big chunk taken
out of one of her paw pads. So then she looked like this.
And now, finally, her paw is all healed up and she is doing
much better. And we have even been able to play outside
and enjoy the nice weather we have been having.
So in a nutshell, that's pretty much what we have been up to.
Again, we're real sorry that it has been so long since our last
post, but it is not our fault. We are blaming it all on The Crazy
Man Who Lives Next Door. He kidnapped us and held us for
ransom. And that's our story and we're sticking to it!
