Oh the doofus is home!

Here is the story of Tanner's Vet visit.

tanner clutching his toys the night before
Last night he was feeling blue, har har, so he was clutching his favorite blue toys.

Then this morning it was up bright and early to get to the vet by 7am.

First of all when they got there, guess what was waiting!

they use cats as bait to get them in the vet!
I tell you what, I would have not even got out of the truck! But Tanner likes cats so this was the perfect bait to get him in there. Once he was in there he realized that this was the BAD PLACE. He was not happy.

Mom had to wait until almost 11:30am to get the call from the Vet, even though they said she could call as many times as she wanted, she didn't want to seem crazy. (ahem) The vet called and said the doof made it through just fine. When they picked him up they had put a yellow bandage on his leg for Steelers! What nice vets! They also had a nice red bandana on him. However, I don't think Tanner had any idea WHAT was on him because he was OUT of it. He still is. I think they did find a cure for Doofus-ism, SEDATIVES!!!

so happy to be going home
He snored the whole way home.

what is he on??
Mom put him in his house because she thought I might try to mess him up. Like I care? I gave him one sniff then I was back to looking out the window.

He is resting peacefully, and I am at peace as well. I wonder how long these sedatives last!

sad tanner
Tanner is sad right now but he will be his old self in no time! Thanks everyone for your thoughts, prayers, and crossed paws.

Hey Joey, I know you will probably frown when you hear this, but I was really worried about the Doofus. Poor little guy. I'm very happy to hear he's home and we're all crossing fingers and paws for the only good news about the icky lump.

p.s. I was also sad for you having to spend a whole day all by your self. I know you were very brave about it all, but I hope you didn't feel lonely.

Get well soon Tanner and I am sure the gross thing is nothing and your mom shouldn't be so worried.
PS - my mom thinks it's a histiocytoma which is no biggie, I guess.

Hi Joey and Tanner, I am glad all went well and Tanner is back home. Those sedatives can really knock a pup for a loop! I had surgery (to get fixed) a few weeks back. I was out of it the day of my surgery and the next day too.

Oh, Tanner, I hope you are doing better! You look so sleepy in those pictures. My little heart just breaks that you are under the weather, but hopefully you will be back to your playful self very soon. I'd come give you some luvin but you live too far away! Maybe I can mail myself to you? Will your mom let me sleep in her bed?

He looks so sad! My eyes are all wet for him. We wish all of you well, as we know how hard it is when someone is not feeling well. We like his yellow cast though, that is very cool of them. Poor Tanners.
