Speck Update

Speck is doing great since his little lumps were removed.  I gave him a pain pill the first night but haven’t given him anything since.  He’s doing his normal running and jumping.  Tonight I was in the sewing room putting up fabric and Vince brought him over to me.  Vince said he was sitting on the back of the sofa watching the door and whining . . waiting for me to come back.

You can see we’re starting to move in and it’s beginning to look like a “Judy Room” with lots of stuff around.

When Vince set him down, he ran around the room 3 or 4 times like it was a race, then poked his head in the closet that was open, then curled up on his pillow.  I threw a piece of fabric over him and that’s where he stayed til it was time to go to the house.

He gets his stitches out a week from tomorrow so I think he’s going to be just fine.

    So glad to hear that Speck is doing good. He was one of
    the topics at our Saturday quilting group yesterday.

    That’s wonderful news… Speck likes to snuggle under quilts too, doesn’t he??? And is that a regular pillow or a special pillow with herbal and other good things inside?

    Wish I could get our dog to use a pillow–he’s just torn them up when I’ve bought one before.

    Yep, looking like a creative person’s room indeed 🙂

    Do you use your GO cutter? I’m thinking I might want one but they are a bit pricey.

    Yep! Speck just wanted to be near his Mama! But it sounds like he approved the sewing room!!

    Speck looks very content and comfortable on his pillow! Glad to hear he is feeling better and has approved the new studio. Just don’t forget him when you leave to go back to the house. :o)

    So glad Speck is back to feeling himself. Such a cute pose. He might be playing hide-n-seek you know. Don’t tell him his backside is giving him away!

    Lori and I were just talking about Speck today, so glad he is feeling better. I bet he feels ‘undressed’ without his little red harness. They do grab ahold of your heart don’t they?

    My little Boyzle is coming to South Dakota with me next month, had to have rabies shots, blood tests so he can come back home. He hates the Vet, (and she is scared of him) so I think she jacks the price up. We will both be glad when it is all done. It will be interesting to see what he does when he sees snow for the first time.

    Aw he is so cute lying there, I have one that likes to pull the blanket off my bed and lay on it. I have a special blanket that is her’s.

    Henrietta – Boyzle is a great name! I love it!

    How cute that he inspected the sewing room and then was content to sleep the rest of the time you were there working!

    Glad to hear Speck is better! My dogs wait for me when I am gone also. I hope I am not the only one, but I cried more at losing a doggy than my folks??? Well the dog was there every day, all the time, and my folks were thousands of miles away. I think that is the difference, I know that is the truth 🙂 Glad the little fellow is on the mend!!
