Sammy Update for 29 December 2006 (this is no fun)

The humans got up early and went to pick up Sammy. They got back just in time for our lunch, which is good timing.

They carried him in and got him comfy in his crate downstairs and then let us out... but they wouldn’t let us go downstairs to welcome him back! I mean, come on, just one sniff? But no, the human woman did let us go out on the deck, so we had fun going on the deck, which we never get to do, and then we went out in the yard, but ran straight for the back door because we figured that we’d get to go through the back door to go see Sammy. No.

All day we’ve been trying to go see Sammy, but they put the stupid gate up and we can only see him from the 2nd floor. I’ve woo’d to him a few times, but he doesn’t answer me. He seems a bit drugged up, and very comfy in his new cage. He’s sporting a new hair cut down his back and one on his side. The cut from the surgery looks pretty oogie, but not so bad. I mean he looks silly with his bare back and all, you barely notice that big ol cut down his back.

The human man spent a lot of time down there with Sammy, to make sure he’s ok and all. They watched some tv together, then Sam napped. The watched more tv together, and then Sam napped. I kept trying to woo at him and even yapped once, but the human woman made us go out again, via the deck. No chance of her messing up and letting us down the stairs I guess.

So, this is very boring. He appears to be doing ok, sleeps a lot. He’s gone outside twice (he’s allowed 4 “out” times no longer than 10 minutes and no racing around the yard), and sleeps. Sigh. Good to have him back, but I can’t sniff him and that makes me stomp my delicate little feet. Of course, he can’t stomp his delicate little feet because they still don’t work very well, so I guess I’ll just have to monitor him from afar and hope for a chance to get down and sniff him sometime soon.

Welcome home, Sammy! Good thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery! Meeshka, I'm sure Sammy hears you wooing and that this is a great comfort to him. Give him a little time to feel better and he'll be wooing back to let you know he's OK!

Love from Anne & Molly

Hurrah! Sammy is home! And one day down on the 8 weeks of recovery in the crate. We hope he is wooing back at you soon. You talk tough but we are seeing a different side of you ...

Roxie, Sammy & Andy

Meeshka, I am sure he hears you woo-ing (I still wonder what that means) and appreciates it. You are being a good big sister. Please tell us, can he walk at all and go poddy outside?

I'm so happy your Sammy is home! I know how tough it is to want to play with the gimpy and not be able to. Patience (which is not our strong trait) must really be used now. Keep wooing at him though, that way he will know you are thinking of him. Pretty soon, you can woo back and forth at each other and drive the humans crazy with all the "talking" you are doing with each other!!

Be sure to have the humans get some good "recouperating" photos!!

I'm so glad he's HOME! This has got to be hard for everyone! Please consider giving your mom a lick on the nose for me, OK? Just once?
Sending good thoughts and prayers to all of you!!!

Welcome home Sammy! Keep up the wooing, Meeshka. I bet Sammy likes to hear familiar sounds. Maybe your humans could rub a cloth on you and put it where Sammy could smell it and then rub a cloth on him so you could smell it. When my lopsided sister gets UTI, the vet suggests trimming her fur back there very short (veterinary reasons are the exception to the no shaving rule) so she doesn't get so messy. Warm fuzzy thought for Sammy.
