Take a moment

Sometimes, your girlfriend will ask you tricky questions like “Do I look good in my new collar?” Don’t just bark out the first thing that pops into your head. For example, don’t tell her that she makes for a pretty lamp. Don’t tell her that she could probably tap into some satellite radio stations if she tilts her head just so. Take your time. Think it through. Chew on a bone if necessary to buy time.

This is a tricky question and how you answer it will determine how your girlfriend treats you for the rest of the day if not longer.

Medical Update

The Humans tell me that Stella made it through her surgery well with no complications. She can’t come home until tomorrow, though. 

Tomorrow is a super long time away.

Human Daddy gave me a chunk of baguette to console me. Usually, I gobble it up. Sometimes, I even steal Stella’s portion.

Not tonight. I left a chunk for my girl, for when she comes home.

I love my Stella more than bread.

Puppy Eyes

Puppy Eyes work great for some things, like convincing your Humans you deserve a game of Frisbee or speeding up the delivery of your dinner.

You know what Puppy Eyes can’t do? Puppy Eyes can’t fix Stella’s knee and they can’t speed up her return from orthopaedic surgery.

We will be apart until Friday.

We’ve never been apart more than a couple hours, not ever, since we first met.

It was love at first sniff.

I love Stella with all my heart.

Dear Readers, please send positive energy for her surgery and speedy recovery. We love you all so much.

I miss my Girl so very, very much.

Woofs and Wags,

Thank you all so much for your good wishes! I have a luxating patella caused by my heroic charge into the front fence to defend my yard against an interloper. The Humans have told me that I will be going to a third vet next Wednesday for a surgical consultation. After that, I will have knee surgery to become a bionic Dog.

For all our Dog and Meowy followers, think very carefully about heroism. You don’t always get a medal. Sometimes, all you get is a visit to three–count them, three!–vets for your trouble.

Woofs and Wags, Stella
