Howdy, friends! Noodle J. Parker here. BOL! That’s Dad’s nickname for me. My middle name is Schnoodle – it doesn’t start with “j”- and our last name isn’t Parker. Silly Dad.

I came to update you all on Macy. It’s been 17 days since her surgery. She’s doing really well. Too well. She’s ready to run and play and she’s not allowed to for another month!

Mom and Dad know how hard it must be for her to stay “calm” and quiet. She IS Macy after-all. So, they took her on an adventure Friday.

It started with a little walk to see Snooter Tooter


Licking each other’s tongues.


Sniffing noses

Then they took her to visit with the chickens.


“They gave me love bites on my nose!”

The dodo doesn’t even realize that they’re trying to kill her.


Yesterday, she got to go to the vet! Mom was afraid she wouldn’t like going anymore but she did. They took her stitches out and said she’s healing wonderfully.


Barely any scar! Mom thinks it’s because the doctor did the initial incision with a laser that cauterized as it cut. She doesn’t really know but it’s just a guess.

Macy has to go back in 6 weeks for her post-op x-ray to make sure everything is healed properly. Once that’s done and cleared, Macy can resume normal activity.

Countdown to normalcy: 17 days down, 43 to go!

    Great update, NJP. Macy’s cut looks awesome. Mom has had papercuts that took longer to heal than that! I hope her backyard adventure makes her feel better and helps her to wait for her final release from the doctor.

    Love and licks,

    How great it must be to be cone-of-shame-free!! I’m so glad that she is doing so well. Now, the challenge will be to keep her from over-doing, as you are well aware. Maybe you can give her some dog toys to keep her occupied? I have one that is like a cube that you put a dog’s regular kibble in, and if they play with it just right, it comes out, one piece at a time. For food-motivated dogs, it can really keep their attention but does not require walking.

    Noodley Doodly, it is so good to hear from you again. I know you have been enjoying the quiet while Macy was “incapacitated.” Now the real challenge begins! Oh, and if I ever need surgery, I think I will get the name of Macy’s doc. Laser incision….great!

  10. Noodle J. Parker, thank you very much for this post. That scar is a miracle, because there is only a small hint of the scar. Macy had a lovely walk, she is happy and will be in order very soon.
    Hugs to everybody.

    • Hi, girls! I’m glad I’m healing too but I like the vet so I’m a little sad that I won’t get to go back a lot to see them. Oh…Mom said she will take me for healthy visits so I can say hi. YAY! Kisses! Macy

    • Hiiiiiiiiiiiiii, Ruuuuuuuuuuuuuby! OMD! Can you even believe how awesome my leg looks? If any boys ask, I’m going to tell them I took on a grizzly…and WON! I would LOVE to slobber on all of the chickens but Mom and Dad won’t let me hang out inside their cage with them. One time I snuck in though. I dug a tunnel from outside of the fence right in! I didn’t hurt the chickens. I just ate their food. BOL! Kisses! Macy

      Hi, Ruby. Your bfffffff is crazy. Psycho. Looney. Certifiable! *ear licks*
