Hello...Is There Anybody Out There?

Today we drove to my grandma's house to visit Amber. I ran a little, but didn't feel like running very much. Mom got this plastic thing and then we came home again. She put the plastic thing, which looks like a lampshade, on my head!

Then mom soaked my foot again, and then fed me dinner. She put two little extra pills in my dinner.

And I still hate wearing this stupid sock.

Mom said I have to go back to the vet tomorrow. She said it looks like the skin on my toe is closing up before it finished draining, and that I chewed on my foot and broke the skin in a different spot, and she is afraid that is getting infected. She also said she has to get get a longer lampshade collar for me from the vet so that I can't chew my foot. I am NOT looking forward to tomorrow!


  1. The torture they are putting you through is awful. Another trip to the V-E-T can't be good. Paws crossed that everything goes OK for you.

    Woo woo, Kelsey Ann

  2. Oh no, you look really sad there Indy, I hope you'll get well soon

  3. Oh no Indy. I feel your pain. The lampshade thing. I had to wear that thing for 2 weeks. You have to be sure to bump them with it and rub it on the floor, it makes an awful noice.

    I hope you foot gets better. I'll be thinking about you.

  4. stop by my blog, and see the new friend I found for our DWB family.."Charlie the Coyote"

  5. Sorry about the stupid lampshade thing. Just don't let the humans stick a lightbulb in your mouth!

  6. Oh Indy, that is so bogus. I'll try to think up a plan to save you so that you don't have to wear a lampshade on your head and one sock. Mom says she did that once, but it was in college, and she didn't have anything wrong with her foot. I don't know what that means, but it sounds dumb, so we'll chalk that up to humans being weird. I hope you are freed from this torture soon!!!!


  7. Awe Indy,
    Tristin & I are very sorry to hear about your toe-troubles. We hope all the torture is done and over soon. And you can be back to yourself soon.

    Mom & Dad also send their well wishes for a speedy recovery.

    Love and Licks,
    Quincy & Tristin

  8. Oh Indy, I'm so sorry you have to go through this humiliation! I sure hope it isn't infected!!


  9. Oh, Indy, that's terrible! I hope the vet tells your mom that she doesn't know what she's talking about and your foot is fine. Probably not though, your mom sounds pretty smart.


    PS. Can I have that treat since you're too sleepy to eat it?

  10. Lampshades are so humiliating. They make it really hard for a husky to maintain dignity. Hope the foot feels better soon and sock/lampshade go away.

  11. I can't believe the torture and humiliation you're going through. That treat does look kinda tasty though.
