Sorry it's been so long.

Well friends, I'm sorry it's been so long since I wrote anything.  Mom's been really busy, but I finally told her "Mom, sometimes you just have to take time to roll in the grass and pee in the woods".  I had a really bad day today.  Mom was taking me to Pup N Suds for a bath and while we were going in the door, the door closed on my tail.  Don't laugh because it's not funny!   I didn't yell or cry or anything, so Mom didn't know that I was really hurt.  When she started to wash me, she noticed the blood and started to panic.  You haven't seen anything until you've seem my Mom panic.  She grabbed me up in a towell, which is no small feat cause I weigh 70 pounds and took me to the vet.  I was really scared, but I didn't let it show.  They put me to sleep and then put stitches in my tail.  After I woke up, I was so groggy that I couldn't walk real good.
I really wanted my Mom & Dad, but I was in a cage.  After a while, Mom came to get me and took me home.  Boy oh boy did I get loved and petted and rubbed.  Now I've got a big yellow bandage on my tail.
I might even glow in the dark.  The doctor gave me some pills to take and told Mom to bring me back in 10 days.  I'm not sure I want to go back there.  They stick you with needles and make you drunk.  Mom had to call my friends and let them know I can't come visit them tomorrow.  I think they'll be sad.
I'll tell Mom to let you know how I'm feeling tomorrow.

  1. Poor CJ! You're so tough. You remind me of my old lab mix, Lani. One day, when my mom was picking me up from school, she decided to bring Lani. As she shut the back door, she didn't see that Lani's tail was in the way and she slammed the door right on her tail. Lani was quite a trooper, but her tail was split right open. Blood was everywhere. Luckily, the vet was only about a block away. The split was so odd that they couldn't stitch it up, but they did bandage it really well and it healed quite nicely. Now, I'm super-duper careful around doors, and I never assume Cody's tail is out of the way. Then again, Lani always made sure to get all the way in the car after that. I hope you heal nicely, and enjoy a bit of time resting up.
