Sammy gets to do fun things

Well, this spoiling of Sam has gone on long enough! They took him somewhere and wouldn't let us sniff him when he got back.

I heard the humans talking about what a great job he did, and how everyone thought he was the cutest thing, and how well he was doing. Well, if he's doing so well, why can't I play with him?

He came back all wet too, and he woo'd to us that the humans drove him a long way. He serenaded them from the crate the whole way there, and they seemed to really appreciate his high pitched screeching for over an hour.

He got to be petted by some people, then he was taken back into a room and weighed (he's lost a few pounds), and then they SHAVED HIM AGAIN! Yep, they shoved his butt where he had a sore. Apparently the fur was all matted and stuff, but the sore healed nicely, but they shaved his butt! Now he really looks like a flock of wild moths attacked him.

Apparently the doctor and all of the staff are amazed at how well he's doing after only 2 weeks (so I say, let him play!). They took more blood because before the surgery his blood work was a bit wacky, but they think that was from all the drugs he got, but they wanted to check again to make sure everything was all right. They also said that he's a picky eater because of the antibiotics. He should be a chow hound after those are done.

After the poking and prodding and shaving, some strange lady threw him into a swimming pool! Ok, he later recanted and said that she was very nice and put a little doggie life jacket on him and eased him into the pool, but she did make him swim a lot. She had to hold up his tail because apparently he couldn't paddle well with the back feet, but they said that was normal.

His scab looks much better since the water washed it off, and he said it was sorta fun and scary in the pool, but it felt good to run, even if it was in water. The humans talked to the pool lady and they discussed some very tasty foods that they needed to get for Sam. I'm hoping we get some of those foods, it sounds great. Like pudding stuff.

Sam said that he slept all the way home, he was very tired and soggy. He also pooped again today, which the humans had a big celebration about again. I poop... nothing. He poops... parade. I don't get that!

Ok, so here are some pictures that the humans took of him. The first one is of him right after the surgery, so his back looks pretty scary.

The second one is him in the pool screaming "OH MY GAWD WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO ME HAVEN'T I SUFFERED ENOUGH INDIGNITY WITH THIS STUPID HAIRCUT??"

Great news Meeshka! I am so glad to hear that Sammy went swimming. I bet that it will help him get better faster so he can play with you. Sounds like a super cool experience for Sammy.

By the way, I have one of those black cages you can HAVE if you want it. It's probably too little for you huskies.

Oh, his poor back looks soooo sore! I'm sure glad he's doing so much better though.

That swimming therapy sure looks fun. I like the water!

I'm sure at the rate he is going, your Sammy will be better before you know it, and then you can play with him once again!

Sorry about the double reply. Blogger was being stupid so I had to keep hitting the "leave a comment" button and it kept making me re-type those stupid funky letters.

Grrrr! Blogger is being stupid! This is the third time I have to type this - my paws are getting sore!

Poor Sammy, maybe he can cover his nakedness with some of your leftover fluffiness till he regrows his own? He looks like he enjoyed his own personal assistant in the pool - every husky shoud have a personal assistant. Hope he feels better soon.
