Sammy News Update

Me and the gimpy mutatoe listened into the phone when the humans were talking to the surgeon and apparently Sammy ruptured a disc and came through surgery wonderfully. His spinal cord is fantastic, everything went well, and he's by now had dinner and is recuperating in his little recovery crate at the hospital.

The humans did the happy dance with us to celebrate. They could have picked him up tomorrow, but the human man has to drive to another state for a stupid work meeting, so they'll bring him home friday morning.

I'm sure he's going to be all drugged up and we probably won't get to play with him at all, he'll probably smell funny, like he did when he came home from his bionic hip surgery. I'm guessing that he'll start bragging about his bionic spine next, and how expensive he is and worth more than us, but that's fine. I miss his stupid girly yapping and bragging. I miss him so much that I've been playing with the suck up gimpy mutatoe out in the yard, but I'm being "gentle" as the human woman reminds me. I guess no more slamming heads into the ground or humping any more. Sigh. These gimpies are too fragile for me.

Here's a picture of Sammy before the "incident":

Doodles is so glad that Sammy is going to be okay and home in a few days. If you need any advise of how to be gentle and still be a Husky, let me know -- I've perfected my ways since Da dad's operation.

Wow, that's great news! Grab him by the neck and throw him around for me when he gets home. Well, no maybe that's not the best idea. But let him know we all are REALLY glad to hear things are going well! And wish him a good recovery!!!
Luv,

PS: Ammy thinks he's cute!
