We were so very saddened to read that our little buddy Benny had crossed the rainbow bridge. He fought so bravely and we all fought and cheered along with him. Special big hugs to his Mom and Lilly who must be missing him so much.
One things we do know for sure is that Mr Pip was there waiting for him over the rainbow bridge with a nice pair of shiny new wings and that the two of them are now buzzing around and no doubt getting into as much mischief as they can. Fly free Pip and Benny
Now we also have a thank you to send to Molly the Wally who asked the other Mollie's Mom to make us some nice new scarves as a thank you for the paintings we did for her. Of coarse ME being the big HE dog I am and with so much fur it wasn't quite long enough so Mom being the clever person she is - made it into a bow tie for me. Dweebs did fit as a scarf but needless to say he was terrified of it.....that boy is scared of his own shadow !!! After many treats and reassurance he finally said it was okay to wear. Thank you to both of the Mollies Moms - we love them and they will perfect come Christmas time.
Now a bit of update on Mom - she had all her gazillion stitches out on Wednesday and her Doctor was VERY happy - there is no redness or swelling, no sign of infection. He said out of all the surgeries he has done on her - this one is healing the best. Unfortunately though because the mesh had to be attached to the bits of muscle between her ribs - it is also extremely painful. The first week Mom had a pain pump that was positioned under her skin directly to where it was needed so the pain itself wasn't so bad, but now that has been removed she is really feeling the mesh pulling and has to be extra careful ALL the time to make sure the stitches don't tear the thin bits of muscles. Even just us pulling on our leads could do that - so we haven't really been doing much. The doctor says it could take up to 3 months for the mesh to bond properly so she has to be extra careful. But you know our Mom - she worries about us not getting our trips to the park or the pet store and going on adventures. On weekends we get to do stuff with our Dad and Mom has been taking us to places where we can walk off leash - so we are are getting little adventures at least. Please keep our paws crossed for our Mom as she still has some weeks to go before they know for sure her body isn't going to reject the mesh.
So there is the roundup of our week - but we want to ask everyone to do one special thing this weekend - we want everyone to spend some extra special time with their furbabies - Please give them extra cuddles, extra walkies, extra play time, extra treats and extra loving. Why you ask? Why not we say :)
