Beau did well. They were able to repair the leg as opposed to amputation. He got a plate (broad plate commonly used for horses), so he is bionic! He has a compression bandage to reduce swelling. He can go home as early as tomorrow to start healing. He will need bandage changes every 4-5 days and will need to x-ray leg again in about 8 weeks. His tail had a lesion, so part of it was amputated and he was neutered while under. He is set to go home!!! And the best part is - Beau has found a forever home to go home to!
So this is me last Saturday at the bake sale. I spent all day visiting with guests and finally got to meet Mindy and Mike (who called me chubby), Connie, Sharon Terry B., Callie B and her mom who came all the way down from Dayton, and many many wonderful friends who I only knew by name. I had a good time, but I missed my brothers and my home. I like going to the store because I get a lot of attention, but I like my routine. As soon as I got home, poppa had my dinner ready so I ate and stole Bernie's big bed and I rolled around on my back like I'd never done before. My back legs were kicking so high that my butt was almost in the air.
So I have to tell you what happened last night. I went out for my last outing and took my time. Usually, I am the first one in, but last night I was on a mission. After everyone was in, I finally strolled in with what looked like a chunk of snow. I very proudly took it to my bed. Momma thought it was cute and called my pop to come see it. By the time he got to me, the white snow covering had melted and it revealed my delicious frozen tootsie roll that I worked so hard to dig up. Momma screamed and said it was gross! Gross? It was a delicious frozen pop, not gross. She ran to the bathroom and took my tootsie roll with some toilet tissue. She held it like it was radioactive. So, what's the big deal, I ask you? I just wanted a delicious frozen midnight snack. Hmmmm Must think of a way to sneak one in tonight without being found out. Hmmmm" -- Poo-Poo-Breath LEW
