Update on Rumpy

Hi everybody! Thought I’d give you an update on how I’m doing.

20140301-065100.jpg
I love to lie on the back porch in the morning when it’s cool!

My gums are looking better! Jen is feeding a mixture of wet and dry food, and I’m eating well.

I’ve been good about taking my medicine too, especially since Jen has been wrapping it with peanut butter. Yum!

I’ll be headed back to the vet next week to see how I’m doing.

Oddly enough, I’ve heard of two other canine friends who have had the same problem. For one, the vet went ahead and removed the tooth. For the other, the vet put off the surgery.

Jen had a very long day at work yesterday, and it started at 6 AM! That’s why there was no blog post yesterday. But now it’s Saturday! YAY!

Jen promised that she was not going to spend the day doing stuff. We’re going to relax and take it easy.

What are YOU going to do? Whatever it is, I hope it’s fun!

  1. Great report, R. Eating well and taking medicine with PEANUT BUTTER are both yummy and positive developments. I feel good news coming on next week.

    Lots of love and licks,

  2. We’re so pleased to hear things are going better Rumpy! Tooths can be so much trouble 😦
    Today we’re going to cuddle inside because it is SOOOO cold out – Gracie just wants to stay under a blanket and the rest of us are happy to lick peanut butter out of bones – hope you have a relaxing weekend. (If Jen spends too much time writing, do what Gracie does and try stepping on the keyboard.)

  3. Hi buddy – sorry to hear you have been ill. I’ve been missing a lot lately, so don’t know what has happened to you other than a toothie or toothies problem. I know all about that because I don’t have any. Sure hope you don’t have Stomatitis like it did buddy. I’ll be purring for you.

    1. I went in to have my teeth cleaned and when the vet did bloodwork he found I have elevated liver enzyme levels, so they didn’t want to anesthetize me. I’m hoping it was caused by the infection and that I’ll be able to get my teeth cleaned and tooth removed soon.

  4. Glad you’re feeling better, Rumpy! It’s no fun being “under the weather”! And it’s no fun for us “fur moms” either!

    Sorry Jen had such a long day at work yesterday! Before I retired, I hated those long days, especially when they came on a Friday! I hope you get to spend a lot of quiet quality time with Jen this weekend! Enjoy!!

  5. I’m so glad to hear your gums are getting better!!!! OMD! Jen is very hard worker….I understand you miss her…I hope you enjoy this weekend with Jen! 🙂

  6. Wrapping medication in peanut butter? What a great idea. Must try that with my gang. Not a good day for Jen yesterday, but bet you looked after her when she got home,. Hope next week’s dentist visit goes well.

  7. It is so good to hear that you are eating and taking your medicine. Keep getting better and better sweet Rumpy and you and sweet Jen enjoy a nice restful, relaxing weekend. Hugs and nose kisses

  9. I hope your vet visit goes well and they give you lots of cookies. It’s raining here for the first time in forever so I think I’ll take it easy around the house. But I’ll still be taking my person out for a walk.

  10. SO glad that your gums are better and that you are Eating and taking your Peanutbutter Pills. GOOD NEWS RUMPY.

  11. So glad to hear you’re feeling better.
    My husband and I went to the Viera Wetlands to take photos of birds and alligators. We even saw two deer scamper by – but, we didn’t get a photo. They were out of sight before you know it. Best wishes to you and your crew.

  12. Hi Rumpy! You look good but then you always do……hopefully since you’re eating well your teefs aren’t bothering you but Jen will know by how you are whether it’s time to pull a toof. We’re just hanging out and resting up from the Moon trip here…..it’s too cold to be outside so we’re snuggling by the fire in the fireplace!

    Hugs, Sammy

  13. I am so glad you are doing better! I told so…yes did and I am glad it is true. I am also glad Jen is doing a relax day. We need them so much. I’ve pretended to be a cat today – lots of naps, sitting at the window looking out, having a few snacks. It’s been a great relaxing day.

  14. That’s great news, Rumpy! Thank you for the update as I was about to send Jen a mail to see how you’re doing! Now you can spend the weekend cuddling! 😉
    Happy March with happy news on everything! 🙂

  15. Glad that you are feeling better. We do not do peanut butter. Mom does not even have it in the house. We spent the day hanging out. Mom went with a neighbor to go look at a rescue pup. It is for the neighbor, not for us. When she got home, we had a chance to play on the patio until it got too hot. Once the air conditioner goes on, the sliding glass door gets shut.

  16. We are happy to hear you are doing better,Rumpy – we hope the vet visit goes well for you. Phantom gets his meds in peanut butter too – about the only thing that works. But just for some of his meds. He can smell that Marin no matter how Mom tries to hide it , and then he just spits it out.
