Happy Birthday Droopy!

Happy 14th Birthday to our Droopy!!! Droopy and I have been together since Droopy was 8 weeks old and I was 12 years old.  Droopy is the reason I love bassets and why I got into helping our local basset rescue.  Here's to many more years Droopy!

We hope you had a Happy Halloween!

We had a fun Halloween.  Mom insisted on dressing us up as Batman, Robin, Alfred the butler, and a bat.  The big goof ball in the bow tie is our foster brother Hugh.  He's a Walker Hound and just a sweet boy.

Smiley ever got to go sit and hand out candy to the kids.  Then she tried to sneak a Snickers bar and mom freaked out! heheh

Health scare so back to the VET!

Droopy here!

Well I was healing up from my splurgery ok.  Getting lots of rest and eating good but Momma noticed my belly around my stitches didn't look so great and was oozing bloody stuff Friday afternoon.  Off to the vet we went!

My vet found that I had an infection and some fluid build up so I got wrapped up like a mummy and set home with antibiotics to make the scary infection go away.


The crazy bandage wrap is mainly to protect my stitches and so when it drained it wouldn't drip all over then floor.  My vet says the infection is from me trying to scratch at my stitches and the bacteria got into my wound.

This is my scary FrankenBasset bandage when it came off.  All that yucky brown stuff came out of me!!!!

My vet said I have to have a shirt of so that there will be no wound scratching.  I'm not bad I swear.

Momma brought me back to the vet on Monday and the vet said my stitches and belly look better than expected!!!  The vet re-wrapped me in this stupid bandage so my wound would still drain.

Too bad all the medicine made my tummy all upset.  I made sad faces at Momma until she made me boiled chicken and rice with yogurt.  Hehehe

Clearly this bandage makes my beauty sleep difficult to get.

Momma says we go back to the vet monday to finally get my stitches out.  Meanwhile I continue to wear goofy shirts.

Droop droop update

Hi everybody!!

Droopy here posting a splurgery update.  I did great!!!

My v-e-t removed my funny lump and two mammary glands.  You can just see the shaved area under my big brown and black spot.  I'm not gonna post pictures of the stitches cause Momma says they're kinda scary.  I'm doing ok with the stitches but I'm kind of uncomfortable cause of where they're located, right behind my left leg.  No Cone Of Shame cause I can't reach the stitches but Momma keeps putting a t-shirt on me cause the stitches are kinda itchy.

My v-e-t didn't have to remove any teeth!  They did take some cool pictures of my insides to check on my spine, the bone spurs, and that weird bladder stone that I don't remember swallowing.

Smiley and Kayah have been real supportive and watchful so I'm getting lots of rest.  The foster siblings are another story but hey they're foster pups and need manners.

Well I'm gonna go take another nap

Droopy's yearly vet visit

Droopy here.

I went for my yearly v-e-t visit on Friday.  My vet says I'm looking good... for a 13 1/2 year old pup!  I have another mammory lump that has momma concerned and the vet says some of my teeth need a little cleaning.

We had a nice quiet weekend and Momma said this morning it was time to go get the teeth cleaned and the lump removed.  Paws crossed that everything goes ok cause I know momma likes to worry.

What we have been up to

We had a super nice Christmas

Our favorite pit bull, Violet, came and stayed for Christmas.
She and Corey loved each other

Corey left for The North! just after January first

Kayah started roaming the backyard.
This is a major big deal! Kayah hates grass and is afraid to go outside most days.

Then the new foster showed up.
He is a 12 week old bassador pup named Linus.
He is fascinated by Droopy.

And Smiley is his best best friend and mentor!

So all and all it's been super quiet around here. Nothing super blog worthy but that's ok.

Sniff ya later,
Droopy, Smiley, and Kayah

P.S. Linus has a home already lined up and leaves next week!
