Take the pain away - Dalhouise

Sunday, March 29, 2015



Dalhouise sure does look sad and sore. He wobbled out of the clinic like a drunken sailor walking along the wooden boardwalk back to his ship on a Saturday night.
I wanted him to have his needles up to date and that spot on his left hind leg that is still bleeding looked at before I took him to the sitters on Tuesday. Well during the examinanation it was clear even to me that he had a tooth infection that had to be dealt with.. This past month I could tell something was wrong - and there is No way possible he knew we are going away. I only took out the suitcase on Friday so that he wouldn't know it... Well he was coming to me wanting to be hugged. - sit on my lap - hitting me with his paw so I would cuddle him and pet him. He wanted me to make him feel better...
The doctor said he would almost immediately feel relief after the tooth was pulled because it was that badly infected - he actually pulled two.. I was told.
The old age lumps - I don't know what they really are - they were refered as that so - that is what I call them were removed as well. One on his mid back near tail and on his left hind leg.
Dalhouise kept biting the one on his leg and it was always bleeding. I was concer about infections after he swims in muddy ponds / creeks or when he gets rolling around in the dirt. Camp life is paradise for a health dog. Dalhouse is turning 13 on his birthday and he is a very healthy - young at heart dog for his age.. All those kids coming to camp must keep him that way..
I am happy to say as I close - this morning he is looking alittle more chipper.

(You can send him a get well postcard. :)

    Oh poor baby! Years ago, my dog (deceased in 2013) developed a tooth infection and also had old age lumps - had to remove the tooth and one of the lumps. Oh I'm praying for a speedy recovery for your baby. emoticon emoticon emoticon for your baby! Blessings, Karen emoticon

    Aww what a sweetheart, how is Dalhouise today, is he feeling better and less pain?? I commented on our team page but was here and thought I'd check in...I must admit your furbaby is such a cutie...Wish he were mine...I lost my baby last June 25, been thinking of going to the nearest SPCA and adopt another Kitty...mine was 17 years old when he passed, most of his life he was between a 18 and 20 pound kitty... his name was "Sunshine" we called him Mr. Sunshine quite often..he liked that...

    BIG HUGS for Dalhouise... emoticon
