What a ham



Because the LaPan house just wouldn't be the same if we were all healthy at the same. Cause, well... that's just not how things work around here.

So, Baxter decided to join me on the "broken" list.

Actually... it's all still from that stupid cyst he had on his paw. He had surgery to have it removed the same day I had my epidural injections, last Monday.

He was really good with it at first. I think he was still drugged up though. Then, of course he just couldn't leave IT alone. He had to lick it. Constantly. And pull a couple of the stitches out. And STILL not leave it alone. Even when we drugged him...

So here he is, on his 3rd re-wrap from the vet (5th if you count the 2 that Shane & I tried to do), with a special little note to him on it.



And they told me he was an absolute ANGEL, and that he just sits there and lets them bandage him up. Which is SO not what happens in this house.... when he acts like we are murdering him when we tough his puppy paw.

But, anyway... he's going to be fine. I have to take him back in 2 days, for the 4th time, assuming he doesn't get this bandage off as well... He'll get it cleaned again and the stitches that held taken out.
I just hope it's fast. Like really fast. Because do you know what life is like with an unexercised Vizsla... and Weimaraner?

Best decision I ever made. Wellness Plan. All office visits included.....

Poor baby! Just breaks your heart!

I took my pug to the vet this morning... yeast infection in both ears. I felt like the worst mom ever! And then they told me they now consider her a "senior canine." She's 7. I about lost it and started crying. My little old pug!

I know exactly what life is like with an unexercised Vizsla, and I can't think of a more difficult thing to endure. I wish Baxter a speedy recovery -- not only for his sake, but yours!

Nice pics of Baxter and I hope he heals quickly too. Poor puppy.

Erin knows what life is like with an unerecised Vizsla, and I can cover the Weim part...my guy is 8 and ppl are always commenting on how "young" and "energetic" he is. I tell them they should have seen him at 4. Yikes!

I wouldn't wish unexercised Vizslas or Weims on my worst enemy.
