Happy Howl-a-ween!

I'm a dog.  Today Alicia and I got dressed up in costumes to celebrate Halloween.  She went as Waldo, and I went as Waldo's dog, Woof.

I am so excited about this costume.
After our photo shoot (most of which I spent licking her face and making sudden movements so that the picture came out blurry), we went to the vet for our weekly check-up.  Alicia has been a bad girl and has not been posting weekly updates.  So let's just quickly run through my progress with a couple of photos...

10/10. First Day Home.  Bandaged and coned.
10/12. Bandages come off.  Bruised and swollen.

10/13.  "Fort Molly" established to prevent climbing of any sort.
All stairways (not pictured) also block off.
10/17. Still swollen.  Bruising going down.
10/24(ish). Bruising and swelling have gone down.
This picture is upside down and refuses to turn the right way. Sorry.
Alicia's camera seems to have eaten the photos from the day I got my stitches out.  I do not know why. I don't like.  Photos on the iPhone mysteriously skip to this past weekend (aka Frankenstorm).  I don't like Frankenstorm.  Thunder and lightning are fine, but strong winds and heavy rain? I don't like.


10/31.  Dr. approves Molly for chair snuggling.
Check out my scar now!

10/31.  Healing very nicely.  Swelling and bruising gone.
Putting lots of weight and walking normal.
The doc says that I am making terrific progress and that I'm a good girl.  The only bad news out of today's appointment is that I developed a double ear infection.  We're not sure how or why, but it happened, so now Alicia has to clean my ears daily and put ointment in them.  I don't like.  She also won't let me scratch my ears.  I really don't like.  But at least I get to sleep in my chair again!

  1. Looks like Alicia and Matt haven't been using their couches for their intended purposes recently, since they look fairly full of Fort Molly!
