Thank you New Kent Animal Hospital

Thank you New Kent Animal Hospital for making me better.  I know you tried to save my tail, but couldn't.
I think I like my new look.  This bob might be a new fashion statement.  You never know.  Thank you to Drs. Pinkleton, Engel and Putt for taking such good care of me.  Also thank you to all the vet techs who held me, loved me and made me comfortable.  Love and sloppy kisses, CJ

I'm sad today

Today we went to visit my friends and one man that I like a lot wasn't there.  His room was empty.
I looked and looked for him, but couldn't find him anywhere.  Mom said he probably moved to a better place.  I want to visit him, but Mom said we can't.  It makes me sad not to be able to visit him anymore.

I get my stitches out tomorrow.  Maybe I'll stop looking like a giant flower.

The other labs are making fun of me!

They took my bandage off yesterday, but they are making me wear this collar.  I had to slink out of the vet's office because the other dogs were making fun of me.  The doctor said my stitches come out on Thursday.
I hope they take this thing off soon.  Mom says I look like her little Morning Glory.  What's a Morning Glory?

Bad news at the Vet.

Mom said we got some bad news at the vet today.  My tail is not getting any better and the doctor said it has to come off.  You know, I knew something was not right because my tail smelled different (worse than usual).  I was right.  The doctor said, even though we tried our best, gangrene has set in.  I'm beginning not
to like going there.  They are real nice and all, but it hurts every time I go.  Mom said we have to go first thing Monday morning for an operation.  Are they going to make me sleepy again?  Mom & Dad are real sad today so it must be a bad thing coming.  I need my friend Cody to make everybody smile again.

We went to the Vet today.

We went to the Vet today and Mom looked worried.  The doctor said my tail is not healing like they would have liked so they gave me more pills.  I like getting pills because Mom gives them to me with peanut butter.  I have a good time licking it off the roof of my mouth.  The doctor told Mom that she wants to talk to another doctor tomorrow and then she will call her.  They said that they may want to re-stitch the wound or amputate.  What does that mean?  Whatever it is, Mom's face dropped, so it can't be good.  I'll let you know tomorrow when the doctor calls.
