I have been a bad blogger. I miss you guys. I shouldn’t stay away for so long.

It’s just that with Molly recuperating, Macy has been a pain in my tush. She’s acting the way she was before Molly got here. Screaming in my face about who knows what. I can’t even think when she’s howling and going on.

Molly wants nothing more than to play with us but Mom’s not allowing it. Not because she’s growly and grumbly but because she doesn’t want Molly to hurt her mouth. Well…that didn’t go so well.

The day after Molly’s surgery , Mom and Dad noticed that Molly’s breath was really bad. Mom assumed it was because she wasn’t drinking a lot and there was dried blood, etc. By Thursday, Molly had drank less than a 1/2 cup of water since she got home on Tuesday. Mom called the vet and told him that she wasn’t drinking and he said, “Feel her gums. Are the tacky or wet?” Mom told him they were very wet. He said Molly was getting plenty of fluids from the canned food and not to worry as long as her gums were moist.

Over the weekend, Molly’s breath got way worse. Mom took Molly to the vet first thing Monday morning. At first, he said everything looked great from what he could see, although he could smell the bad breath. He said as long as there wasn’t any drainage, we shouldn’t worry. Mom told him there had been pink drainage.

With that, Molly had to go under anesthesia AGAIN! Would you believe that she ripped out all 5 sutures?!?! She hasn’t even been doing anything except eating delicious canned food and sleeping in Mom and Dad’s bed! The vet said that the extraction site was packed with food (UGH!) so he cleaned it, packed it with antibiotics and put thicker sutures in. He told Mom that he does 4 – 5 gingival flaps per week, 25 a month, has been practicing in FL since 2000, and this is the first time he’s ever had one fail.

Leave it to Molly….

She has to go back for a checkup in 7 days and then a followup 7 days after that.

Oh, she also gets to eat canned food for another 2 weeks!!! I’m not even allowed to have a taste.

Molly’s still not drinking water but trust me…she’s NOT dehydrated. She’s a drooling machine.

So that’s my life in a nutshell (a big nutshell).

And since pictures of Macy seem to please you all, for your viewing pleasure, I give you Macy acting Marmaduke-ish:

    Your house has had a lot to deal with over the past few months. You all deserve more POTP x 4 from us. Macy is a good ball, but where are you? Best wishes to Molly. Hats off to your mom for keeping watch.

    Oh Noodle, I’m proud of you for being such a patient and understanding brother. We’re sorry Molly is having complications and hope she heals without any more problems. Belle pup said to tell you she understands how you feel since dealing with “wild child” Bess is driving her crazy. Belle is the only one who can rough house with her right now. and Bess loves to rough house! Hang in there with Macy, I bet she’s missing playing with Molly. Tell Mom she’s doing a great job! Cuddles and hugs, Margret

    • Miss Margret! Hiiiiiiiiii! I think it should become written rule that puppies are not allowed to go near dogs older than 4 (my age) OR dog’s who have matured (like moi). Since it isn’t written rule, I suppose I’ll continue to do the “right thing”. Thanks for acknowledging my effort! *ear licks*

  16. Wow, that’s wild! Glad the problem has been diagnosed and (hopefully) resolved so she can fully heal. I can’t wait for the pics of Ms. Macy flying like a kite in a windstorm with those ears. She makes me smile every time I see them. Thanks for sharing. Ear scratches to you, Noodle! ღ

    Hi Noodle…..My sweet lil Noodle. Your mom told me what a good boy you’ve been. Trying to be so patient with your sisters. I know you feel like you should be getting more attention but before you know it Molly will be better and Macy will be all grown up. I know your mom is saving so many snuggles for you and only you. I miss you so much. Love, hugs, pets and ear scratches…..Grandma ❤

    • Hi Grandma! I’ve actually gotten some extra snuggle time in since Molly has been spending most of her time in the bedroom. She’s the lap hog, not Macy. I’m not so sure that Macy is going to grow up anytime soon. She’s pretty ridiculous. Anywho, I miss you soooooooooo much. *ear licks* Your Noodle
