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!


  1. What wonderful news!!!!!! Sending lots of POTP for continued quick healing!!
    Rosy, Jakey & Arty
    (and hugs from our Mama to yours!)

  2. oh that is a wonderful news!!! we do the happy dance but we still cross all paws and fingers for more and more such good news

  3. Sending lotsa POTP so ya heal quick Ruby!

    Do ya need me to bring margaritas over??

  4. This is wonderful news and you are looking great, Ruby! More AireZen and POTP is winging its way to you♥

  5. Oh heck, I thought you were well then I see I have missed the super big major surgery stuff that you have been through, Ruby. Boy am I glad my all time fav Ardale is on the mend. We will be sending extra special purrs and prayers to make up for those we missed before, plus some nip flavoured and marrow flavoured margaritas we can share when you get 110% better – like next week ;) MOL
    Lots of purrs
    ERin & Mrs H

  6. so happy to hear you are better and i must say you look like a princess with that collar, you know like the Queen of England kind of collar and you are the princess. good job to the vet and mama

  7. It's so good to see you Ruby and we're glad to hear you are recovering well. We will keep our paws crossed for your continued improvement.

  8. You've gone delerious. You think something is better than margaritas.

  9. Oh what a lovely bit of news here. I'm so happy for you Ruby and so happy for your mom too. Soon this will just be a memory. I'm doing the happy dance.

    Have a woof woof day, Miss Ruby. My best to your attentive mom. ♥

  10. You can't keep a good dog down. We knew she'd do great once she got home. Now keeping her quiet is going to be the tough job. When do all those stitches come out?

  11. So wonderful to hear this report, Ruby and Ma. We just used old human t-shirts on Phantom and you can tie them in a knot on the top of the back at whatever point you need. But it seems like her donut is serving the purpose for her. So happy things are going well.

    Woos - Lightning, Misty, and Timber and Mom

  12. We hope you feel better real soon, Ruby!

  13. That's grreat news! Better than 87 margaritas, huh? Maybe I should try one of those!

    PeeS: Momma says her friend made a pawesome kitty onesie for post-surgery and maybe something similar could work for you and give you enough leg room, if you start to not like the inflatable collar.

  14. Hari OM
    Oh good... POTP...POTP...POTP...POTP...ETC... hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  15. Fantastic news! And we're sending more POTP. You just keep getting better, girl. And your collar looks like those thingys peeps wear on planes!

  16. It's terrific to hear that you are doing well, Ruby...keep up the good work!

  17. Ruby and Ma thank you x 87 for this most wonderful RUBY update.
    I am so relieved to read how very very well she is cooperating and healing
    Proof Positive that a diet of Margaritas makes ones insides super duper.
    Ma I know you feel like 1000% better too.
    Hey Ruby I'm thinking all the puppers and kittehs might be a wee bit jelly of that fine looking soft collar and it might make a nice neck brace
    Hugs Cecilia

  18. None of us knew dogs could get pain patches. We're glad you're going poopie ok, Ruby. That is VERY important. Xox Xena and Lucy

  19. We are so happy that you are healing! It's important to continue to drink plenty of water so you'll have good tee tee and poopies. We love you and are sending lots of POTP. XXOO

  20. So happy to hear that you are doing so well Ruby. We will keep the POTP coming. Make sure you keep resting and healing
    Mabel & Hilda

  21. Thank for the update, and it's great to hear that Ruby is doing so well.
    Paws and fingers crossed that things go smoothly when the pain patch wears off.

  22. Great news Ruby! I'll send Nachos to go with your Margaritas!
    Many PTOPs.

  23. Such pawsome news! Keep up the wagnificent recovery, Ruby. Sam, Elsa & I continue to send oodles of poodles of POTP with hugs to your mum.

  24. I haven't been keeping up with my favorite blogs now that Jimmy/Wilson are gone so I am just seeing all this. I am so sorry Ruby needed surgery! I hope removing the tumors and uterus do the trick and she is on the road to feeling better. I'll be thinking of you both!

  25. Wonderful to hear Ruby is better. Healing prayers are still on the way. XOXOXO

  26. I am so glad Ruby is recovering well! That’s so scary! I hope she continues to improve. She can brag to all her friends about her super long scar!

  27. Such wonderful news, Ruby💗Here comes an Extra dose of Healing Pawkisses just for you💗💗💗

  28. Lulu: "Yay, Ruby, that's great news! I am sending lots of tail wags that your recovery continues!"
    Charlee: "And Chaplin and I are sending purrs!"

  29. Ruby, it is wonderful that you are doing so well. We will keep the POTP going for you
