Moving Right Along

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Mom and Little Miss Wonder Dog slipped out on me again this morning.  Ok, maybe slipped out is a slight exaggeration.  Let’s just say Ol’ Jetty Boy fell for the “Jetty, look it’s a special treat” line from Mom again.  In fairness, Mom RARELY offers a pig ear because they’re greasy and a bit stinky to her, yet nectar from the heavens for me!  Oh, I’ve digressed again.

Anyway, considering this week’s craziness surrounding the garage door… is it up, is it down? Is it fixed? Can we use it? Do we go out the front door or the garage door?  … falling for the pig ear distraction is not that embarrassing.

As Mom told me…

JJ hopped right into the car so easily, Mom forgot to bring J’s leash!  She held JJ by the collar to bring her into Dr. Shaffer’s office and they offered their temporary purple leash right away.  JJ remained composed while happily visiting with Disney and her family.

This is the second week, JJ went “deer in the headlights”, when seeing a human in scrubs.  Dr. Shaffer came into the front to say hi to Disney and JJ and JJ half-heartedly wagged hello.  Then, one of the vet techs came out to take JJ to the scale and she snapped the leash’s little metal thingie and slinked herself right out the door into the crowded parking lot of the strip center.

Mom and the vet tech tried to call her back with no luck.  Mom resorted to the “JJ, let’s go in the car,” line and Little Miss “Not So Perfect” trotted into the back seat.  This time, they used 2 purple leashes, just in case and brought my sister back in.

To Mom’s dismay, after feeding JJ a lot more kibble (behind my Elizabethan Collar) this week, Little Miss “We Want HER Metabolism” held last week’s weight.  To Mom’s delight, JJ’s girlie girl area no longer exhibits irritation, her scar got the “looking good” from Dr. Shaffer and her UTI seems to be resolving appropriately.  Dr. Shaffer gave Little Miss Waxy Ears another earful of helping medicine with accompanying ear massage.  No visit for 2 weeks!

Another great, except for the great office escape, day.

JJ: The Recovery Wonder Dog

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Yesterday, JJ went back to Dr. Shaffer for a surgery follow-up/scar check.

Mom chatted with Judy and JJ reviewed the little critters while they waited.  JJ surprised everyone with her shivering and tail between her legs… who can resist the Paradise Animal Center folks?  Guess JJ remembered last week!

JJ received an A+ from Dr. Shaffer on her scar healing. Mom told him with pride how JJ bounced back so quickly from surgery.

After Mom mentioned JJ’s skin irritation in her private areas, he took a quick look and approved of Mom’s idea to use MY boo boo salve.  During the exam, my sister had … ahem… an accident from being so worried.  Dr. Shaffer told Mom JJ most likely had a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) and would need another round of antibiotics.

Next Mom mentioned she thought JJ had another ear infection.  Dr. Shaffer took JJ into the “BIG ROOM.”  Mom had to take a few steps in as well, because our girl was a bundle of nerves.  

Dr. Shaffer put helping stuff into JJ’s ear and Mom will check in about 3 days.

Mom and JJ waited for Judy to prepare the bill and the medicine to come out of the big room.  While waiting, Miss Social Butterfly checked in with the new bird…

Luigi the cat…

And Zoey the schnauzer…

Next week, same K9 time, same K9 location for another check…

Another great healing day.
