Ho hum...whoa is me...

Hello, it's me , Griffin here...
I'm usually a running, swimming, playing happy pup...
I love my walks in the woods everyday...
but these days I'm laying pretty low...
You see on Friday I went to see Dr Joe and Dr Lambert and
before I knew it I was fast asleep.
When I woke up I felt like...well...like crap.
Big Time.
My lady told me that I had two big lumps that had to be removed from either side of me.
My owners said it was "for the best".
If you have a problem with yucky stuff you best not look at my next picture...
 Yeah that's me...all shaved and cut up and stitched back together...
Ouch...
Itchy too!
My lady and man are taking really good care of me and I'm feeling
much better now. I get these treats every once in a while for being
so good at taking my meds...my lady says this helps me feel better.
Sometimes you just have to have faith...
and trust...
I sure miss my walks though...
But the weathers been crap so it's a good time to hang out inside by the fire...
So long for now.

Poor guy. I do hope you feel better soon. At least you haven't been made to wear the 'cone of shame'. Get well soon and you will be going on your walks in no time.

Melody said...

Awwwww, poor guy. You'll feel better soon, and lighter without your lumps ~ and you'll be back to your walks before you know it. Enjoy the rest and the extra pampering from your humans till then! Sending a little doggie hug... :)

I have been going back and back to find the post that explained what happened to my favorite dog I've never met! Poor baby! So glad his stitches are out! My hard always goes out to animals … they don't understand, and must just wonder what in the world is going on. Happy He's on the mend!
