Resting

Norman is home safe and sound resting. He is very tired from his pain meds, so he won't be blogging today. He had a rough night last night, limping around the house in a doped up haze. Poor little Pugger. He was back to his rambunctious self this morning until I drugged him again. He has just two days of pain meds, so he should be back to blogging sometime this week.

Here he is snuggling his Hootie. He missed his Hootie while he was at the Vet.

The next photo is a little graphic, so if you don't like things like stitches, don't look.

I wanted to share this photo with you just to show off Lyn's mad surgical skills. Check out that beautiful needlework. The skin is pulled really tightly right now, because there isn't a whole lot of skin on a Pug's leg, and removing the mass didn't leave a lot to work with, but Lyn did an amazing job not only getting the wound sewn together, but sewing it up with such amazing skill.

Thanks Lyn!

    Hi! I am glad Norman is back home. I didn't like the effect of pain meds on Coco. He would fall asleep standing up, the whole day! I hope Norman feels better soon. Coco started limping yesterday... now I am getting really worried!

    Ohhh, poor Norman. That looks really unpleasant, though you are correct, great sewing job. We hope Norman is back to himself soon.

    We's glad Norman is back home with his Hootie and his Woman! Cool green stitches - that's the same color as the bandage I hads from my IV.

    We's left an award from you when you feels like picking it up.
