Happy Birthday Boy!!!

Wednesday was Bruno's birthday, so we had Roxie and her Mom Marcie over for cake! Yummy!

Roxie loves Bruno, she just doesn't want him too close to him.

Happy Birthday Bruno, 1 year old!

Roxie is digging in, and Bruno is licking, come on Bruno!

Ok, now he's got it...

So spiffy in their bows!

That all folks!

Roxie gave Bruno a bunch of her favorite treats. Those are now Bruno's favorites, and now I have to ask Roxie's Mom where she got them! Bruno also got a stuffed Frog for his birthday. Which he quickly went to work on...of course.

No more Mr. Frog... Such a happy boy!!!

New toy, toy gone.

Thank you Aunt Suzanne for getting Bruno this fun toy! Bruno enjoyed it thoroughly, until the end, for about a half hour. As you can see, it has lost it's use. Shredded. We appreciate the thought. Maybe a concrete toy would last longer. ;)

Healthy Boy!

Hello everyone. Bruno's recovery went very well. He's back to the dog park running and playing, no dogs were there this particular day. We appreciate all the well wishes, and he sends his sloppy kisses to all.

What is that moving...

Look what Bruno found in the backyard...

Bunnies! I saw that he was fixated on something in the grass, and I thought he was eating rabbit poo again, but then something moved....bunnies! There about four, at least that is all I saw. They're pretty deep in the hole under loose grass and their eyes aren't open yet. It will be fun watching them grow, from afar.


Relaxing at home.

Bruno came home Friday, yay! He still had the second tube in which we had removed on Saturday. We are now tube free. Now, it's 3-4 time daily cleaning of the holes, 4 if you're counting. Warm compresses for 10-20 minutes and an anti-biotic cleanser. At first this was hard for me to do, b/c I didn't want to hurt the lil' guy, because the holes need to stay open, and if they close up, I need to open them back up, for continuous drainage. However, since I've done it just about a dozen times so far, I'm getting used to it. And, he doesn't seem to mind if I have a treat on hand. He's looking really good, however, I won't show any pictures until the holes look better.

Thanks for the card Barney!

Day 12: Going home, hopefully.

I didn't post yesterday because I didn't feel like getting on the computer, so here's yesterdays update...

*Another Abscess! (Thursday, July 17th, 2008)
Well, I went to visit Bruno at lunch, per usual, and another abscess appeared where Dr. Jude sampled the initial abscess on Monday. So in goes another tube for drainage. Now Bruno has two tubes sticking out of his neck. Dr. Jude said they're going to keep him another night and take out the first tube tomorrow(Friday) let him go home with us for the weekend and then have us bring him back Sunday so she can take out the second tube. All the while Bruno is wagging his tail. One of the nurses said that while they were squeezing the second abscess, Bruno was wagging his tail(he was under a small anesthesia that numbs the area they are working on.)*

Ok, back to today. He looked good at lunch today. Dr. Jude was in surgery, so I didn't get a chance to see her. Plus, not sure if we'll see much of her actually, she's due to have her baby TODAY! I took Bruno out for a little walk and a fly came back with us, he loved that. Hopefully Dr. Jude will let us take him home tonight. We miss him terribly!

Thanks so much for the card Aunt Linda, so cute!

That's all for now!
