Little Miss Lampshade

Hi all

Yes, yes. Very funny. I sure heard them all by now....

Little Miss Lampshade, Lady Satillite, Funnel Head, Bucketling etc on top of the Lady Hopsalot and Miss Limpsalot. I must tell you, it's all wearing a bit thin now and I am ready to go back to normal.

But apparently it is only week three of six full weeks of nix, nuffin, nada, zip & zilch.

Everyday I make a point of giving them THE LOOK as often as possible, just to show that I think it's all THEIR fault. And it is. THEIR FAULT. Why did HE have to take me there, and why wasn't SHE there to protect me?!! And all that looking I do... it's working.

I have them so far, that they take me for drives instead of the daily walks and romps on the beach, feed me culinary delights every hour on the hour and carry me to as many different locations throughout the day as possble in order to stimulate the "Airedale's delicate mind", like a person in the know once said.

I give Molly as much grief as possible too (why ME and not HER?) and run into her with that dreaded cone of mine as hard and as often as I possibly can. Hah, why should I be the only one suffering here? What did I ever do to anybody?

The good thing is, every time I get a treat (hourly), the helmet comes off. I quickly sneak in a lick of my THIRD non-healing wound on THE LEG before the culinary delight is served. She yells. I give her the "MUM, I am suffering, BIG TIME!!"-look...

and she forgives instantly, serving the delicious snack anyway...

My fave these days is dog sausage stuffed in a Kong. Contrary to its name, dog sausage does NOT contain dog, it is however served to dogs. And Airedales like it too! Inkys especially.

So some of the stinky goodness gets cut up into long pieces, then she smears it into the Kong, nice and tight, so its stuck together and to all sides like some kind of mashed paté paste. Enter the Inky tongue, and GO!!!..

The rest is history...

That takes about 20 -30 min (depending on stuffing technique) out of my BORING ole existence so I ensure I have a few of those throughout the day.

So things are still a bit drab but I am surviving just fine. Thank you for all your kind meassage, I really appreciate them.

  1. Dear Inky, So glad you sent us this update. Well the cone is the pits, but sounds like you are getting yummers treats and being fed every hour almost sounds like heaven!! Be nice to poor Molly now...she probably is a little jealous with all the attention you are commanding. Still hoping for a speedy recovery for you.

  5. Hi Inkypup,
    SIX WEEKS of bedrest? Aargghhh! You're doing so very well! I got bored and ripped my new basket :) after just 1 week! My leggie is getting better though, and I started to go for (very short! - 10 minutes on the lead) walks yesterday.
    That Kong technique looks good.
    Keep doing that look - it's great!
