vet tales

So the Doof had to go back to the vet because his sutures looked really GROSS. The Vet said he was having a bad reaction to the sutures, which is why they looked yucky. The doc took them out, put some antibiotic and a nice bandage on it and sent us on our way. FREE OF CHARGE. They said it should heal just fine, yet still no treatment was mentioned for the de-doofusifying.

Tanner got his sutures out

He got a purple bandage today and gets it off on Thursday, then I think it will be LAMPSHADE HEAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mom is still cleaning and getting things back to normal after the BBQ and the company, but tonight she promised Tanner and I can share one of the leftover hot dogs. I bet we have some SWEET gas.

This was us this morning when Mom said VET TIME! I thought for sure it was my turn, but nope, it was doofus again!

Hey - you never told my mom what kind of tumor it was.
Hot dogs are my favorite - all I got tonight was a crummy piece of raw potato that hit the floor but you know what they say about beggars and choosers! My mom is making bouillabaisse - fish stew! - I will eat like a pirate tonight! AAARRR matey!

Joey: Maybe Tanner and Teka can have lampshade pics taken together! We hope he feels better soon.

Doofusism is not curable. It is sort of like being a Jack Russell, I think.

Hey Joey,
Do you think Doofus's drool could be the problem behind his sutures looking so gross?

I wonder if Doofus will post a picture on Tanner Tuesday to show us his lampshade! har har... :)

I love that photo with the whites of your eyes Joey, and the dreamy haze highlighting all your toys in the basket.

Tanner-
I just LUV purple! I LUV your purple bandage!! Do you like the Vikings (football=MN)? I am glad you are o-k. Joey- what is a lampshade head? you sorta look like a doofus in the pic cuz you think you are going to the vet and not Tanner. You make a really cute doofus, though.

Dude - tell your Mom that Doofus doesn't have to be a lampshade head! Check this out - tell her to take a section of newspaper and roll it up. Then take a kitchen towel and roll it up lengthwise around the newspaper. It should be big and bulky. Now just use duct tape and tape it around Doofus' neck. NOOO .. not TO his neck - tape the towel to itself. If you get it big and bulky enough he can't reach to lick his leg. Well, I couldn't lick my you-know-what's (even though they weren't there anymore) - I dunno about a leg. Try it - you can still see sideways!! Whoo hoo.

mmmmmmm...hot dogs.
I'd make a doofus face if I could get a hot dog.

I hope Tanner's leg heals soon. Maybe if he didn't let his bandage get so dirty, it would heal better. Love the purple!

Hope that Tanner's wound heals soon.. Oh and I can't wait for a lampshade photo.. hiak hiak...

Tanner, glad to hear you're doing better. Just make sure not to lick when you get your bandages off. The less you lick, the less chances you'll have to wear a lampshade.

How'd the hot dogs taste?? You're making me drool..

Are you sure it was a reaction to sutures and not his natural allergy to his own Doofusism? Or maybe the Doofusism was leaking out?

Mmmmm...I can almost smell your hotdoggas from here.

Brings back memories of my Collie who always had to wear a bandage and socks with suspenders. I now have a boston terrier "kermit" who fortunately doesn't have any of those problems. I'm putting your page on favorites, hopefully I'll get some pictures of my two boys on-line.

Not the lampshade!!!
But at least you get hot dogs and the opportunity to gas your parents out of bed ( or off the couch etc...)

What is a lampshade head? Does that mean he'll be "brighter" and smarter? Is it the cure for Doofusism?
