The doofus!

Tanner is feeling better, so now Mom has to try to keep him from running all over the place and tearing his sutures apart. Good luck with that one. We have to take the bandage off tomorrow, so I am guessing that soon you will be seeing a cone head tanner because there is no way he won't be licking that stuff. Mom bought some of that natural bitter stuff and she seems to think that if she blots a little above and below the ouchy spot he might not lick. I dunno about that.


He was a little bit sleepy still last night, but then at about midnight he was WIDE awake. He was up until 2am! Mom was so not happy! Luckily she had some DVDs to watch. Then he was awake again at 7am!!! He has been up ever since, eating, drinking, running around and everytime he starts running and jumping mom is like No No No!!! So she bought him a new nylabone so maybe he will sit still.

trying to keep him busy

he wants to run all over

messy bandage
He totally has his bandage filthy.

feeling better
Mom will leave the room for two seconds and find that he has jumped up on the back of the couch. He is such a doofus.

So, soon my friends I think you will be seeing a doofus face in an E-collar!!!!

Thanks everyone for your kinds words. Mom didn't even barf!!!

We're glad Tanner is home and back to being his normal self. Hopefully when the results come back, it won't be anything serious.

Tanner - don't lick your leg or chew your bandage, or they will make you wear the scary cone. On second thought, you may be able to scare Joey that way.

I really like that last picture of Tanner on the back of the couch. He looks good.

I'm not allowed there at my house. Boo on my mom. Plus, I'm a bit swarthy so I can't balance well.

Joey: I gots lots of socks left from when I had my owie. I could let Tanner use them! He can have the pink ones and the yellow ones, I am keeping the blue baseball ones. Generous to a fault, that's me!

Tanner, your bandages look like they have been on you for months and not days. Yikes, not the cone!! I had to wear tat for 2 days after my spaying. I looked ridiculous and couldn't see where I was going. Ended up bumping into Mom's leg so often she had bruises so she took it off me. haha

Doofus Tanner, poor wee soul!

So glad he is home and well, even if he is playing up a bit for your Mama!

At least this means he will be back to Normal Tanner (well as far as Normal is Normal to Tanner The Doofus!) Jeannie loves him though!

The bandages are stylin' and the filthiness just ups the street cred. Glad everyone's feel better and good to hear there was NO BARFING. There was at our house but that was just cuz my sister swallowed a HUGE chunk of her bully stick.
