Well, folks, this has been quite a week!!! As you know we, all but Gentle Mousie, were on an adventure to see Dr. Whitecoat recently. It was time for our rabies shots and annual checkups two weeks ago.
Well, I don't like to brag but I am a healthy boy. Weight stable, all bloodwork normal and nails trimmed. You can call me Mr. Perfect, if you like. *Giggles* Yep, that's me. Mr. Perfect.
As for Sweetie, we'll leave that for another time. BUT....
Let me tell you about my brother. Etude, like me had a weigh-in, blood work and his nails trimmed and that was all good... but he hasn't been brushing his toofies properly. He had to go back last week to have a whole bunch (well, it was only 5) removed. I think the doctor said it looked like he'd been smacked in the cheek and cracked a few. Surgery went well and dopey Mr 3-Fangs Gummybear has been on meds and will be until he goes back for his follow-up appointment next week.
Now, the main instruction on his returning home was 'NO JUMPING ON OR OFF THE FURNITURE'. Not a good idea when you've just had mouth surgery and you're still loopy from the meds. And as he wouldn't obey Grammy was forced to assemble the puppy crate ON THE DINING ROOM TABLE and pop him into it. Well, you'd think he was at the Ritz. Big comfy bed - warmed, no less. A curtain to keep out the drafts and 24 hour room service. Mr Sultan of M&M Central was a model guest at Hotel Ritz.
Saturday he did give Grammy a bit of a scare though... when he checked out that morning he refused to pee or poop. Had he figured he's lost enough (his teeth, you know) and wasn't parting with anything else? Meds bunged him up? We didn't know. So, Grammy was on edge all day. She popped him back into his ritzy room and was on Pee alert ALL DAY. FINALLY just before lights out bedtime the effluvia in here was thick. BUT Grammy was over-the-moon happy and relieved. Phew! So after his 3 night stay he's checked out Sunday morning and we have a dining-room once again.
Only one problem... he skipped out without paying the bill. What a scamp!
