Follow up on Mother's Day post from Chardonnay

I'm soooo happy to have my stitches out! I was getting pretty depressed and developed several hotspots from the stress. My family was worried that I wasn't my usual self. I stopped reminding Mommy when it was 5 o'clock so she could feed me because I just didn't feel good.

I hated getting the stitches out on Monday but I'm glad they are gone! When I saw the vet with those sharp scissors, I tried to hide my butt in the corner so they wouldn't see it. Mommy kept telling me to lay still while the doctor removed them, but it HURT! I kept eye contact with her while they worked on my butt so she could tell me it was okay. She gave me the hand signal to stay so I tried to obey. She says I was very brave and did a good job of being still even though I jumped every time they poked me.

Now that the stitches are gone, I can sit and wag my tail without pain. I hope I never have to go through that again. It was worse than when I split my claw all the way to my toe this winter. I used to love going to the vet, but I'm afraid of those people in the funny coats now.

Now all I have to do is wait for my hotspots to heal. Mommy promised I'll get a new summer hair cut soon so I won't look so silly in back. Thanks to everybody who sent me get well wishes, especially Logan.

  1. Chardonnay,

    Having a claw split all the way to your toe sounds painful, but a dog who can't wag a tail is plain pitiful. I'm glad you are a tail-wagger again. If anyone asks about the haircut, just say you are a new breed of poodle.
