An Update on da’ Rumpster!

People who know me, can’t help but love me! And naturally, they want to know how I’m doing since my tooth extraction.


Yeah, Rumpy, how ARE you doing?

Well, since you asked, I thought I’d tell you using the favorite form of poetry of the leprechauns!


A dog we all love, known as Rumpy,

was feeling a little bit grumpy.

The vet pulled a tooth,

and the pain went Kerpoof!

Now he’s back, and his tail’s all a-thumpy!!!

YAY! I'm back to my old self!

YAY! I’m back to my old self!

OK, leprechauns, now point me in the direction of that pot of cookies!

About Jen and the Furries

Hello and welcome. I’m a 50 something woman who’s probably awake when she should be sleeping. Oh, and there are animals, because who doesn’t have pets?

  44. “tail’s a thumpy” got me thinkin: we have a problem with our new dog — she wags/thumps her tail so hard that she injures herself, not to mention the blood spattered on the walls!
    (sad news at our house: another family member ‘bites the dust’). but read up on our cat rescue! (feline arboreal extraction)
