Big Time Loot and the 8-week X-ray


Walter received TWO care packages this week, one from wonderful Mary in California, who sent a box of goodies hand-selected by her four darlings! Walter KNEW the box was for him and enjoyed snorfling each and every package of treats, toys and goodies. He then patiently (sort of) waited for me to allow him to taste-test the treats and gave each toy a welcome mauling. He couldn't believe how much stuff there was!
As if that were not enough, my good friend Kelley, a bookseller at Barnes and Noble sent us the SWEETEST bag of special treats. Walter was totally into the gift-wrapping! His absolute favorite was the chicken strips that have Glucosamine in them, which is good for joints/hips. He snacked on one immediately - see his lil stuffed pug buddy saying "Hey! What about me!" THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also, exciting/a little nerve-wracking news...Today we go to the vets to get Walter's 8-week xrays. This is to see if the pins are in fact where they're supposed to be, and if scar tissue has developed, and "accepted" the pins. Please send us some prayers if you have extra, for Walter's pins and for my ability to stay calm. Just walking into the vets now makes me start trembling.

Heather,
I am sending prayers your way today. I just KNOW we will get the good news we are hoping for!

Try to stay calm at the vet- I know it must bring back all the old memories when you are there. Maybe from this day forward, we can associate the vet with 'the place we go to find out how INCREDIBLY Walter is healing'!!!!

Someone would make a fortune if they invented edible for dogs wrapping paper.

Good luck Walter and Heather. If anything bad would have happened, it would have happened by now.

Walter, you are such a lucky puggie to be getting so many packages from all over the place! And I'm keeping good thoughts for you for your vet visit!

What wonderful presents. Mom has thought about getting the chicken strips for us and after seeing your post we are going to have to work on getting her to buy them.

Walter is in our prayers always...hope everything went well at the vet.

Pugs & Kisses,

Hurrah! The package made it! We are glad you loved the treats Walter. We hope they brought out lots of approving snorts. ;-)

Pins will be where they need to be and the same goes for the scar tissue. We're crossing our paws and fingers and sending buckets full of healing juju your way!

Pearl said...

It was one of my first thoughts when I woke up today!
