Thankful Thursday!


That's right ~ no more cone, no more restrictions!!!


I gots my stitches out today!!

The dogtor was MUCH IMPRESSED that I didn't bother my incision.

Ma said she was too!

Ma thought that they would have to sedate me to remove the sutures, butts NO!

I was a pawsome puppers, and was in and out of there in two shakes of a squirrels tail!

Ma is tryin' to gets a good pic of my scar, so I can show you guys......we'll see.....
I haven't been too cooperative BOL!!!

So, nows I can slowly gets back to my walkies and tree rat huntin'!

Ruby Update!

Oh puppers, I. AM. SOOOOO. BORED!!!!

Ma won't lets me do ANYTHINGS!

I tried jumping on MY couch, butts she put stuffs on it so I couldn't. 


Then I wanted to chase some tree rats!  It's like they thinks it's a 
free-for-all in my yardie!  Ma said no.

sigh. sigh.

What is a puppers to do???

So here I lay.  On my cool-pad. Dreaming of jumpin' and zoomin' and maybe some margaritas.

Wanna update everyone on my progress Ma?  

Ruby's Mom here:

She is doing SO well ~ no problems AT ALL! 

She is leaving the incision alone, and it still looks REALLY good. No redness at all!
She will get the stitches out this week, and we will get the biopsy results this week too.

Her appetite is back, and she is eating her regular kibble, which has helped her poops SO much.

I guess the only hard thing right now is trying to keep a 60lb terrier 
'quiet, calm, and relaxed' .

It's harder than it sounds! LOL

After this week, hopefully things will get back to 'normal', and I won't have to keep such an eagle-eye on her ☺


for all the POTP and prayers and healing vibes!

They really are helping!

And a SPECIAL SHOUT OUT , to Angel Madi and her Mom 

for the most LOVELY card ever!
(will post a pic soon ~ the one I took didn't come out)

Thank you Blogville!

(please send!!)

Ruby Update!

Ruby is doing REALLY good!

Heeeeey!  Yes!  I am doin' good guys!  

See that wrap on my ankle?  That's my pain patch, and it is FABulous puppers!
Better than 87 pitchers of margaritas!

Ma thinks when it wears off tomorrow, I  might have a different idea!


Today I got a towel and tried to play, butts Ma said 'not yet'. 


I gots my appetite back!  At furst Ma was HAND FEEDING ME!
I tried my best SAD PUPPY DOG EYES, and it worked! BOL!

I am still getting LOTS of small snacks, instead of my usual meals.
Drinkin' plenty of waters too.

When the surgical nurse was giving Ma all the post-surgical instructions, 
she said, "Don't be surprised if Ruby doesn't poop for a while, that's normal on the pain patch"
Ma almost LOL!
Ma said that I have never had a problem in that department!
And she was right ~ as soon as I got home I pooped. BOL!

Anyhu, enough abouts poops!

I thinks it's time for a nap.......take over Ma

Okay ~ Ruby's Mom here ~ 

she is doing SO much better than I expected.  I am really pleased at her progress so far!

Her incision looks SCARY, but good. she doesn't mind me looking and checking a few times a day.
She is doing well in her inflatable collar.  I got her a "Doggy After Surgical shirt"  , which she was okay with, but she didn't like the back of it because it wasn't enough leg room for her. ( I was thinking of a t-shirt like Lightning's Mom suggested, but her incision goes ALL the way to her vajayjay! ) It's a great idea if your pupper or kitteh has to have any surgicals and a cone freaks them out. Just not right for her.

I likes the inflatable collar cause I have a pillow where ever I go! 
(It really does make a good chin rest!)

True, hey ~ I thought  you were taking a nap??

I was, butts I was bored. And I thought I heard the UPS guy......he always brings me something.

No. not today. Go back to your bed, I make sure you don't miss anything important....

Keep the POTP coming!

It's working!   Thank you all so much!

I'll keep you posted on her progress!

Ruby's Home!

That's right ~ I'm home!

I'm gonna go sleeps now.....can you tells everyone my horrible ordeal?

Yes ma'am!

Ruby ate a little last night, so she was cleared to come home.

When I went to pick her up and got ALL the instructions (TWO pages! yikes!)
I wasn't quite ready for the incision I saw ~


oh boy.

They had to take out her whole left mammary duct 'system', plus the uterus.

She has a fentanyl patch for the pain, which seems to be working well without totally knocking her out.

She is eating her freeze dried chicken, but not much else at this point, but that is okay. She is drinking plenty of water too.

She is resting comfortably with an inflatable collar on.
She doesn't seem to have much interest in the incision right now, but I also have  a soft e-collar if I need to switch it out.

Keep the POTP coming!

It's going to be a long road,  but I count my blessings that she is one tough AireGirl!

Please forgive us if we don't comment for a while ~ I have a feeling Ruby's going to keep me quite busy for the next week or two!

I will keep you updated on her progress.

Thank you all so much! I hears Jimmy Hendrix's Purple Haze??

POTP needed ~ Ruby in surgery

Ruby's Mom here:

I want to ask you all for some POTP for Ruby.  She is in surgery right now for removal of some tumors.

She also is going to have to have a full hysterectomy.

Because she is older, 11 yrs next month, it is touchy.

She was fixed, but only her tubes tied, and this can cause a problem.

Please send all your prayers and healing thoughts her way.

Thanks bunches.

I will update when I hear any news....


Just talked to the surgeon, and Ruby handled the surgery well.

Both tumors removed, clean lines on one, iffy lines on other, but both small.

Lymph nodes are a little enlarged, but will keep an eye on them.

Uterus was filled with fluid, but not infected because it was caught in time.

She will stay the night at the ER vets, and will get an update in the morning.

Just a note: 

 ALWAYS go with your gut!!
 I thought that I was over reacting to her not really wanting to eat.  Her stools were still soft, and she was just not acting like herself.
I was contemplating waiting until Monday to get her checked, to see if she improved.
That would have been bad.

I called our regular vet, but they were all booked up ~ I chose not to wait and take her to the ER vet just to make sure......

Always follow your gut.

Thank you all for the POTP!

Please keep sending it!!!  I know she is getting it

Thank you all so much!


Went to go see Ruby today, she is doing well ~ vitals are good, temp good, but she is still not eating, so she is staying one more night, just to be on the safe side.

I brought freeze-dried chicken, so they can try and get her to eat that, fingers crossed!

She looked so sad in the crate, it broke my heart!

But,  I hope she will be feeling better tomorrow, and will eat something.

Please keep the POTP coming, and send all the healing vibes and prayers her way!

Hey Blogville!  

Sorry I haven't been around this weekend,
butts Ma says taking care of a 60lb terrier with a bum hind leggie
is LOTS of work!


I have to say, I could get used to the Princess treatment!

Ma got a sling to help lift me up, butts I've been gettin' better, so I don't needs it much anymores.

I've been gettin' chicken rice (rice made with chicken broth) and LOTS of freeze dried chicken!
My poopies are better too ~ this makes Ma happy 
cause a doggie with a bum hind leggie AND runny poopies was NO funs for some reason. ☺

Thanks again for all the POTP!
It really did help tons.

I will catch up with all your bloggies real soon!
I hopes I haven't missed much!
