Oh Nurse.....Can you Fluff My Pillow?


We have an invalid recuperating in the sun room.  Popeye was diagnosed with a mass-cell tumor on his left rear leg that needed to be removed as it is a "angry or hot" form of cancer that could easily spread throughout his body.  In addition he sheared one of his molars off just above the root while chewing on a bone.  So it was removed while the poor boy was on the surgery table. Normally a very exuberant pup he now lies on his puffy pillow bed....with the sunshine streaming through the windows.....on the wicker settee.....the one that no dogs are supposed to be on....ever!  Yes, the one I used to enjoy my late afternoon scotch on.  He is a whimpering mess that will surly keep us awake all night long.

  2. Poor old boy. No doubt he'll make the most of it, then forget it ever happened.

  3. Poor boy, no wonder he feels sorry for himself. Lots of naps on 'Dad's settee' should definitely help. Get well soon Popeye! xx
