DogDaz Zoo: Charlie Update

Charles here – I am interrupting the Caturday post to bring you an update on my bladder surgery:

Everything is going great. The first day was hard and no one told Mommy to have ramps and things for me to get up onto the bed and couch and boy, did coming up the stairs hurt, But you know me, Mr. Biter, I would not let anyone carry me, even though the stairs were really tough.

I was not very impressed with the ramp Mom made from pillows, but Joile thought it was a hoot!

I am making Mom crazy with going out a great deal, but maybe it is because I am just getting used to not having that big bladder stone anymore. The Doctor called and said that it was a CALCIUM  OXILATE stone. That is what we thought and there is not much we can do but stay on the special urinary diet we are on and hope no new ones grow.

Mom says I am licking myself too much and she is going to the store to get a baby onesy. That sounds awful.

DogDaz Zoo: Doing Ok

Charles here: I just wanted to let you know that I am Ok and did very well with my surgery. The Doctor said I am a real trooper.

It is going to be hard for a few days until all the stitches heal but I should be as good as new, for an old guy. They aren’t going to get rid of me so fast. At 14-1/2 years old and 14 pounds, I plan to be around for several more sun rises.

The Dr said that the stone was so big and green and odd, that they are sending it to a lab to make sure it wasn’t some alien from outer space. Then maybe we can know what we can do to avoid more in the future.

I am having trouble with the stairs and don’t want anyone to touch me, so I am trying to bite people to leave me alone. It’s not that I don’t love them. Mom made me a ramp to get up on the bed cause I can’t even do my dog stairs. But hopefully I’ll be OK soon.

DogDaz Zoo: Prayers for Charles

Mr. Charles is having his cystotomy today. The date was moved up because he is starting to have issues. A cystotomy is a surgical opening created in the wall of the urinary bladder. This procedure allows the surgeon to look inside the bladder and remove the giant stone that he has. Beat your drums for a quick and pain-free recovery. We will keep you posted.

Wonderful Wednesday: Jolie, The True Lap Dog

Jolie here: I decided that Mom never had a true lap dog before. She is more used to lap cats. Big dogs always were near her but not as much on her, so they can’t be classified as lap dogs and all her other dogs, except Charles, were over 25 lbs.

Charlie, who is only 14 lbs, is a nice guy and all, but he is a couch dog, not a lap dog. Mom thinks it is because his joints always hurt so he doesn’t like to be ‘on’ someone, he likes to be next to someone. Yes, definitely a couch dog.

Me, on the other hand, I like a lap. I like to be in the center of everything even if Mom is working. I am sure the people on the other end of her camera calls like to see me much more than they want to see Mini Cooper, who is always on the desk or in the window. I am the #1 lap dog in this zoo.

Does your human let you sit on their lap when they are working? Do you give them a choice?

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Wonderful Wednesday: Welcome – Now FEED US!

When I come home this is the welcoming committee.

Mostly they are saying ‘feed us!’

They crack me up. I did not realize when I was taking the last picture of Jolie, Charles, and Mini up the steps that Noel was at the top actually looking down to see when supper was coming. It amazes me sometimes that Mini Cooper is actually the 3rd dog. She is quick to be at the front door and wants to be part of whatever the pups are doing. Luckily, the dogs have never minded.

Are we boring you, Charles?

Note: If you may be wondering about the missing stair side piece. One day, about 20 years ago, V wanted to see what was under the fancy piece. And, so it has remained. That is life at the DogDaz Zoo.

Monday Mischief: Stay Safe As You Boo

Happy Halloween!

Our 3 recent DogDaz angels, Louise, Sofie, and Nine, are here to remind you to keep your pets inside tonight. Humans are the most dangerous creatures around so don’t trust your cats and dogs to be safe on a night like this.

Louise would have been 13 years old today. Happy bday in dog heaven, Lulu.

Now go make some mischief and let us know what kind of mischief you got into?

Yes, Louise is in the picture with the skeletons below, but you have to look really hard to see the big black beauty.

Monday Mischief: WeekAway

Halloween is getting closer and we are getting ready to haunt. We can’t wait! Do you have a costume* picked out yet?

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

*Apology for misspelling in the original post. Sadly, my eyesight is failing, and spell correction likes to change words on me sometimes and I missed that one.

Wonderful Wednesday: Monster Walk

Henry was walking Skeletor and Catzilla. Then it started to rain. Jolie was barking at them (you can see her in the background).

Henry is wearing a Petco Animal Charities T-shirt. Remember to Adopt don’t Shop!
