Well our weekend was pretty hectic..i had a lot of work to do helping Grannie and Grandad burn off..see we have a small time when we can do this and then we have restrictions..
There is a lot of dead scrub that needs to be checked and then burnt..and of course with Rhiannons wedding coming up it’s all action stations..
So off i went..to help..well..this is the first time since Angel Forrest that we have done this and usually he is my right paw man..so the pressure was on..
It started out great..i had my jumper and my Weatherbeeta on and away we went…
Well the smoke! i could not get away from it…
So because i was off leash!..yep first time out here…(Grannie and Grandad checked for roos and such first) i decided to keep trying to wander back to the house..
Grannie popped me on her chair..and said “stay there you
poor wonderful sweetheart sook ”
Well these burn off days are pretty full on..it involves so much hard work that Grannie was worried about me..and i kept hopping down and wandering off..well trying too but the old gal is pretty darn quick and i heard her saying “I had four kids and never lost one..you have no chance Doc”
pain in the butt dogs necessity being the Grannie of invention she got her Mc Gyver pants on..she took her chair and tipped it upside down..she put a hessian blankie inside and then covered the chair with my travel blankie so the smoke could not get in the sides..and voila a PUP TENT..
Grannie is not a bad egg after all i suppose..and i went in dug a nest in the ground dragged that hessian mat and stayed put..all day ..
Excuse the paw prints..as you may know this blankie i shared with Angel Forrest on our last trip up to the mountain and we got all muddy and laid on it in the car..i keep dragging it out on the porch so Grannie says it can stay dirty! Bonus huh!
Well i thought when the two day weekend burnfest was over i was in the clear..but no..then it turned to custard
Seems i had an appointment at the vets Monday..you see i have a lot of warts..but some have been bleeding..quite a few actually..and i have a lump near my boy bits that had to come out for tests..i also needed my toothies done as my breath smelled like bin juice…nice huh?
So off i went..i met a lamb that Nurse Beth is caring for who is an orphan..and then off i went Nurse Beth carrying me and the lamb following..
Now do not be shocked i look like FrankenDoc..Dr mark had to staple me as he did not want to keep me under too long because of my age..i had a lump removed also from near my jugular..my toothies were great! just a clean no extractions..but i look messed up..my nails were done and i had a nasty butt gland thing happening too..i know the details are super!
So i have about 40 odd staples..i am on antibiotics and Loxicom and also some Tramadol if i am in pain…you kidding..if?? i have been a real brave boy..and now i am just waiting for the lab tests to come back and then in 10-14 days get my staples out…i also have lost weight again..ugh..Grannie is going to lose her mind she says 🙂
Grannie says i look like i went crazy in the staple section of Officeworks..
So ..calm ya farm ladies and try not to swoon 🙂 paw pats Doc xxx
