Scooter takes a trip without leaving home...




Howdy y'all. Jamie here. Our road trip is going to hav to wait-maybe next week. I am not sure. Scooter has a bad disc in his neck. Normally it is ok, but sometimes he tweaks it. It doesn't have to be anything big. I do not know what he did but we made a trip to the vet this morning to get some meds for him. The treatment is simply that he gets crated so he has to be quiet. Meds to help reduce swelling and keep him more comfortable. Unless he is outside alone to do his business(with me there), or in my lap, he is in the crate. He knows the drill and apparently does not mind it when he feels bad. Guess he has done it enough times to know it works better this way. I won't leave him til he is better, so Sunny and I will go after he does.
These pics were taken late yesterday, he was starting to feel bad. Oh lord, he wants to dictate a few words.....
HAY! hi eferbody. Boy. Mi neck wuz reely hurtin,but now-wooooohooooo. i haf sumthin mom giveded to me an i feel reeeely gooood. ok anok. thas all. i am floatin......coooool
hi 5's
Scooter
Uh, his meds have kicked in.... We will keep folks posted. He will probably feel all better in 3-4 days. Meanwhile, he is resting and enjoying his pills!
Hugs,
Jamie

Oh, wow. Sorry to hear about your disc problem, Scooter. I have spondylosis in my back, so I totally understand. Please feel better and listen to most of what your mom tells you to do!
Play bows,

1. Tell Scooter that I will be taking an extra nap in sympathy of his pain. 2. We heard from Cole Valley Treats that your prize was on its way. 3. Grammie has a camera like that (Canon Powershot A 590) and she doesn't have a clue how it works. She even has read the manual. She has to go back to the manual quite often. She does like the camera, though. 4. Chasing your tail seems to happen a lot around here also. (Must have something to do with the nurse mind set). 5. Sunny has a great start of a beard and we are sure Stan doesn't care what breed you are. 6. I had better stop this comment before blogger blow up. Best to all of you.

Feel better soon, Scooter! I'm glad you have the sense to just settle down when you're not feeling well. Some dogs really mind having to stay quiet, but you're showing very good sense.

Brown dog kisses,

Hey there wee man. We hope your neck is feeling better soon. How sweet of your human to stick around to take care of you. Isn't being a spoiled pup just the best thing ever?

I've never been on painkillers, but mom says that I'm loopy enough already!

Poor little guy! I hope he get better soon. Your camera looks really cool. My mom still has to read her book when to her camer once in awhile and she's had it for over 2 years now! I hope you guys still get to do your road trip! It sounds like you two need a vacation after all the work you've been doing!

WOAH dude, don't let Lacie find out, she might come by and try to perform her nursing skills on you. From what I read, pills and blender drinks DO NOT mix!!!!

Tanner just posted about the cable hiding, I sure hope he can find it again.

Hey Scooter!!! Apache here. Sorry to hear about your "disc" issue... sounds like your hooman mommy has all things under control. Will keep sending up those paw prayers for you. Hope Jamie and Sunny can make their trip soon. Come on over to visit our blog to take a peek at the puppies!!!

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Hmm..Sunny...I don't suppose you would allow me to come down and nurse Scooter...I could take the night shift...so you could get some rest...besides...I hardly think Scooter is up to any acrobatics so you need not worry about his reputation! Right now I'm still in Austrailia with Noah...but I can easily pop back and forth...

Scooter...I'm so sorry you have a pain in ur neckie!!! Now take ur meds, listen to Mama and Sunny and do your stretchin' exercises when they tell ya to!

We're all sendin' healin' zennie ur way...

Love ya lots!

Lacie

Poor little guy, you can tell he's not feeling his best in those pictures. Glad the magic mushrooms help.

Dewey Dewster said...

Gee Scooter...

Hope ya start ta feel better there....but it sounds,like that medicine is full of a happy potion so even if ya still fell bad ya won't really know it.....

Yep, we were readin' from an blog update file...we need ta go back and read earlier blog entries....but we were in the country and just couldn't do it as it takes 40 minutes fer one blog page ta load......sheesh...dial-up sucks.....
