This is my friend Ernie. He is trying to get better from surgery that he had. He went outside into nature (shivers) and chased a squirrel that taunted him.
There was some mud involved and poor Ernie pulled something hurting his ACL.
Ernie ended up having some major surgery and will even have to go through doggy therapy for rehabilitation. His mom and dad are really taking good care of him and trying to nurse him back to his old self. He’s still having a really rough time at the Hotel Rountree though because dogs will be dogs and stitches will be stitches.
Ernie, I hope you start feeling better my fellow four legged friend. I have a couple of thoughts for you though before I go. Just thoughts from my little piggy perspective – take them in stride with a smile on my snout face.
(1) Quit chasing the women – make them come to you, you handsome fellow!
(2) Quit chasing those squirrels – they’re nuts!
(3) You’re in the Cone Head Club for a reason little fellow. Take it easy and let mom and dad take care of you.
(4) I know stitches itch, just ignore that. Go to your happy place and think of catching that squirrel. Just don’t pull on those things that trying to fix you up.
PIGGY HUGS TO A SPEEDY RECOVERY MY FRIENDS ** GET BETTER SOON ** LOVE TO YOU ALL!
This is another one of my friends called Hero who went to the vet and also became a member of the Cone Head Club. Poor fellow. They gotta have something a little bit better than that wrapped around your head my friend. I know if something itches, it’s doggy nature to want to scratch but you can’t. As my friend Ernie, you have to find a happy spot too. Imagine yourself laying next to the pool sunning yourself. Imagine yourself chasing balls. Imagine yourself hanging out in the Hotel Parker. Anything but scratching that itch.
You can do this my friend!
Hero’s sister Molly also had a doctors appointment. Bless her little heart. She’s 12 now and I understand that’s pretty old in doggy years. Sweets, hang in there. Mommy has really bad arthritis too and I feel you. There’s some days she can’t get up and moving either. I hope they find something for you that makes it so much better soon.
Hogs and Kisses my sweet friends in need. I hope you all get better so soon. I really need to speak to you on the webcam maybe about doing a special issue of my Dear Bacon column. If you’re up for the challenge, let me know. Love yous!
