Poor Jack - His Naked Belly




HI EVERYONE!!!


THIS IS JACK'S VERY THANKFUL MUMSIE....THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT AND LOVE AND PRAYERS...THEY WORKED CAUSE JACK IS HOME SAFE N SOUND.




HE IS NAKED, BUT DOING BETTER. HE'S EATING BLAND DIET OF CHICKEN, RICE, COTTAGE CHEESE, YOUGURT, OATMEAL....A LITTLE APPLESAUCE AND SOON...A TASTE OF PUMPKIN (SHERR'Y SECRET).




JACK SEEMS TO BE IMPROVING EACH DAY ~ HE'S EATING REGULARLY, HE WANTS TO BE INTERACTIVE WITH THE OTHER 2 KIDS BUT WE HAVE TO KEEP HIM QUIET SO HIS INCISION/INTERNAL SUTURES CAN HEAL PROPERLY. HERE ARE SOME PICTURES OF MY NAKED BOY AND HIS BELLY.


FIRST PICTURE IS WHILE HE WAS AT THE VETS, WE VISITED HIM AND TOOK HIM FOR A WALK OUTSIDE SO HE STILL HAS THE IV PORT IN HIS LEG....




HE SORT OF HAS A DOPEY FACE, HE HAD LOTS OF PAIN MEDICINE IN HIM THEN.





JACK IS RESTING IN THE LIVINGROOM ON HIS NEW BED. HE SLEEPS DOWNSTAIRS IN A KENNEL BECAUSE HE CANNOT CLIMB THE 25 STEPS TO OUR UPSTAIRS/BEDROOMS YET.




SEE HIS LOVELY RING AROUND THE ANKLE? THAT WILL TAKE A YEAR TO GROW OUT AND BLEND IN AGAIN....A CONSTANT REMINDER FOR OUR FAMILY TO EXERCISE CAUTION!!!!



LOLA HAS BEEN VERY 'OUT OF SORTS' SINCE THIS HAPPENED TO JACK - SHE IS VERY ATTACHED TO HER PACK LEADER. SHE ALWAYS STAYS WITHIN A FEW FEET OF JACK TO WATCH HIM AND BE CLOSE. SHE CRIES IF SHE CAN'T SEE HIM AND THAT HE IS OK....HOW SWEET IS THAT?



AND THERE IT IS...THE NASTY INCISION THEY HAD TO MAKE IN OUR BOY'S BELLY TO GET THAT 3" PIECE OF CORN COB OUT. BEWARE THE COBS! THEY NEVER, EVER DIGEST AND MY VET HAS REMOVED 7 FROM VARIOUS SIZE DOGS THIS SUMMER ALONE. THEY ARE VERY DANGEROUS AND IT IS VERY SCARY TO GO THROUGH THIS....PLEASE NOBODY LEAVE CORN COBS AROUND WHERE YOU BABY'S CAN GET THEM! IT TOOK JACK ABOUT 3 AND 1/2 SECONDS TO GET THE PIECE HE GRABBED FROM THE KITCHEN FLOOR DOWN HIS THROAT. I'LL NEVER TAKE FOR GRANTED THAT MY FUR KIDS WILL BE SAFE IF THEY ARE SITTING IN MY LIVING ROOM WHILE WE CLEAN UP FROM A MEAL IN THE KITCHEN......FROM NOW ON...THEY WILL ALWAYS IN THE MUD ROOM!!!!


THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU FOR THE LOVE AND PRAYERS! NOSE POKES AND LICKY-LICKS FROM JACK HIMSELF..... AND HUGS AND THANKS FROM OUR ENTIRE GRIFFINDALE FAMILY!

You have no idea how happy I am to hear he is home! I know you and the rest of the pack are all happy he is with you. My mommy is sighing a BIG sigh of relief too. She thought her next trip was going to be to your house next. (She said I could ride with her and she would leave the 2paws at home). But now that he is ok that trip will have to wait.
UNLESS......we find a house. Oh and by the way granma stole the pumpkin thingy from mommy. The freezing it was all hers but the pumpkin thing.....all mommy. Yep, hers. All of it. That pumpkin theif. teehee

Big smooches to all of you,
Willow and Pilar (mom said I had to write her name;bah)

Oh, Jack..I am so sorry I did not come by and no that you were hurting and sick. I am sooooo thankful you are doing better. Stay away from the cobs. Please! Thanks for your thoughts and prayers for Charlottes safe return in your time of sickness.

Whoa, thanks for the warning about corn cobs! I've tried to eat them many times and so has my brother Ziggy. My mom will be very careful to keep them from us now!
