Hickory Follow up

Hickory was finally able to come home this afternoon. She is very tired and upset, eating very little and not drinking. She sleep most of the day but now she is crying because she has the cone of shame on because we are going to bed. I don’t know if any of us will sleep tonight, and tomorrow I have my first session with my new psych doctor.

Hickory’s Surgery

Hickory went in for an ACL surgery today and was supposed to come home this evening but they have keep her over night. We were told that it went fine but that the knee has definite signs of arthritis. She will have to be still (bwahahaha) for the next three weeks as it heals. Then will need another three weeks of light exercise. This dog does not know the meaning of slow. It is going to be a very stressful next few months keeping her grounded. lol

Dog fight

I’ve been working on photos for my webcomic and ran across a funny story. When Hickory first learned that Druid would be joining the family we thought she was sharing her favorite blanket…

But she was trying to bury him. lol 😂

“That ought to do it!”

Now she goes and pouts …

Until she wants her blanket back! Bwahahaha!

She is so put out and Druid is having his finders keepers moment.

A few weeks later … revenge!

You dog!

Today was full of excitement- must be the full moon- but I’m only going to tell you one story that happened.

My oldest is now living with us again and had a short work schedule so I allowed one of her dogs to stay home with my two. Percy, the tall -toothless- white borzoi is a good boy for the most part but I have had problems with him running into the highway  or off to the DWR property behind our neighbors house so when I heard horns blaring this morning I panic. I was afraid one of the dogs was in the road but I found all three dogs laying in the living room.

I relaxed and returned to making my breakfast. Toasted banana bread with butter. I had just replaced the butter when I heard more honking and braking tires. This was not good. I noticed that my neighbor’s cow from across the street had gotten free and was playing frogger with the morning traffic. I dropped everything and rushed out to take care of it- which was fairly easier than we thought it would be.

When I returned into the house I was greeted by an unexpected sight. Druid was laying in the living room licking the carpet crazily, Hickory was sniffing around, and Percy was standing in the kitchen looking guilty. Instantly I thought I had lost my breakfast to the three opportunist but the bread was still sitting on the counter. What was missing? The stick of butter – and when I tried to replace it – the culprit stepped forward and drooled for more!

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised- his mother liked to do the same thing. (aka- my oldest daughter)
