My Ouchie & My Great Adventure

What a great day I am have had. Mom took the bandage off my ouchie this morning, made sure it was all clean and then re-wrapped it. We want to take a moment to remind everyone to take some time - (just 10 minutes) and check your furbabies all over as these nasty lumps can just appear in just a few days like mine did. You can see from the picture how big it was - that is quite a battle scar I will have!

Now Mom being the big softy she is decided I needed a treat today so off we went to my two favorite pets stores. It's a pity the Wuzster had to come along but he needs to work on his fears so I guess it is okay.

So off we went went exploring this aisle and that aisle, checking out all the great smells and new products. "How about a new Harness Mom - Oh that is right we bought one just a few weeks ago". "Well what about some Christmas goodies - look at all the things they have to choose from?"Mom did buy us some Ginger Snap cookies at Petco which made us very happy.

Next we went to our other favorite store Hollywood Feed. They have the best selection of toys but my favorite girl wasn't working today and I didn't get a treat. I wasn't too happy about that and barked loudly to tell the stingy person all about it. But I can't really complain because look at the goodies my Mom got me. Bully sticks, Veggie Sticks, my favorite Char-tar cookies, some lamb jerky and she got us some new food to try and guess what it is ???? It is Kangaroo and Red Lentil and I have already had a little taste test and give it a high four paws ! They also make a Venison Formula and a Salmon. Mom also got me the venison to try. Yes !! I could get use to being pampered just for having an ouchie.



  1. Ouch is right and indeed what a battle scar! You are such a brave poochie.

    What a delightful treat to go to not one but two stores. Looks like you are going to get the best care during your healing time.

    Keeping really good thoughts for the that icky lump that it was just that, an icky lump and nothing more.

    Enjoy those tasty treats!!!

  2. We are glad you are up to shopping. I expect Mom has some of those things put away for Christmas.

  3. Oh but it was a very BIG ouchie Reilly! We're glad you're feeling well enough for the outing. Looks like you're managing just fine and using the ouchie to your advantage!

  4. So glad to see you out and about. Must have the priorities straight, stock up with goodies before the weekend. Enjoy the snuggles and goodies. Sniffs, The HoundDogs

  5. Wow, that is a big incison. Im glad you felt good enough to go shopping. Looks like you got some good stuff.

  6. Look at that scar! You are so brave. I am glad Momma spoiled you just a little bit!

  7. You are extremely brave, Reilly!

  8. Quite a scar! From the sounds of your day shopping, you should have reason to start feeling better!

    So jealous!


  9. YIKES! That's quite the ouchie, Reilly! We're glad you got lots of treats to make you feel better and we're glad that Denny went along too. He missed you, ya know!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  10. We are so glad you were feeling well enough to go shopping!

    Stay well, friend!

  11. You deserved a day of treats! Glad you got to go to your favorite stores and get some goodies.

    Boy, thats a big scar! But remember, chicks dig 'em.

  12. Oh Reilly, you got a huge owee. It sure looks like you feel better. What a great stash of goodies you got. Holding on to good thoughts for you, sweetie.

  13. What a battle scar. Maybe you could come up with a daring story to go along with it.
    Sounds like you made out well at the stores. Good for you.

  14. We have always been amazed at how big the incisions were for Phantom's lumps. We hope you heal well and get some good news.

    We eat that CA Natural Grain Free chicken kibble now. Mom loves it because we are all a lot less gassy than we were on the EVO.

    Great treats you got, nice adventure too.

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  15. Toys make everything better. Glad you're on the road to recovery! :)

    Woofs & hugs, <3

    ~Bailey (Yep, I'm a girl!)

  16. Ouch, Reilly! That looks like it hurts. I am so glad you are home safe and sound. Enjoy your treats.

    Your pal, Pip

  17. It's almost worth having a big ouchie for a big shopping spree like that...WHEeeeeee!


  18. Wow Reiley that really is a HUGE boo boo!

    You did make out at the store though! Way to go!

    I still gots my paws crossed that the lab comes back with good news!

    woos, Tessa

  19. That is a cool scar. Wow! You know I think the ladies kind of like doggies who are a bit rough. Play it for all it's worth.


  20. That is a really big battle scar Reilly. We are sending tons of woofs that the biopsy will be negative. We just know it will. You sure are a pretty dog. And look at all those goodies that you got. How much fun is that. Good to meet you. We came over from Pip's. Take care.

  21. Glad you're home! And don't worry...chicks dig scars!! :)

  22. We are so happy you are doing well. It seems we take time off to do our Essexmas baking and one of our bestest friends get sick.

    Glad you are doing better.

    Essex & Sherman
