Hijacked by Ruby's me Ruby! Just wanted to let you know that I've had my op and now I'm home again. Boy is it good to be home...that cage was ca-ramped and the doggy ward was a bit noisy for my delicate ears. My mom told me that you have been asking after me and I want to say a big woof woof (thank you).

Mom took a few pictures of me post op (I saw the one she posted pre-op...not a good look!) and insisted I show you. Remember not so long ago when she got in a fight with a wax strip and lost (notice she didn't post any pictures of herself looking like Jack Nicholson as The Joker in the Batman movie)? Well I kinda look like that now too but at least mine wasn't self-inflicted (don't think she'll do that again in a hurry)!! I don't think I look very nice now but mom says I'm still beautiful :-D

This is me yesterday not long after getting'd think she would have tidied me up first...look at that drool! No I'm not being attacked by a neck pillow...this is the latest contraption used to stop us scratching...better than those cone thingamajigs and much more comfortable to sleep on!

This is me today...what do you think? Still beautiful?

 Can you tell I'm not impressed! Hopefully it won't be long before my fur grows back and covers my scars.

Somehow grass seeds managed to find their way into my cheeks..Kinley (my handsome vet) said there were about 12 seeds in there...12!!!! There was a lot of gunk that had to come out along with the seeds and Kinley and Catherine had to do a bit of re-constructive surgery. Looks like I got a bit of a facelift which kinda worries me cuz I think I'm gonna be a bit lopsided hmph.  I got off lucky though...there was another dog in with me who ate some grass which went straight into his lung along with a seed and he had to get part of his lung removed!! Good news is he's making a great recovery too :-D

Did you see Jeanie's card she posted on Friday using Gossip Nikki? Mom was going to mention it but was busy worrying about me and Ryan. If you haven't here it is but still go over and leave her some love cuz me and mom think is mega!

That's it from me...I'm going to keep this does go on a bit! Thanks again for asking about makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside :-D

Love Ruby xx

Woof Woof

Great to hear you're home and well, Ruby. We did worry about you a lot. Don't you worry about your looks. You're still beautiful and we love you all!

Anita said...

Aww, Ruby, so glad to hear you're home and feeling better. Stay away from the grass seeds sweetie. And that's a beautiful card you shared with us too.

Amber said...

Glad to hear everything is going well. Poor Ruby, try to stay away from those grass seeds.

Amanda R said...

Ruby I think you look just wonderful and no, your mom didn't show us her "after the mustache fiasco" look. Party pooper! Hope it is smooth sailing for you from here on out and no more cantankerous grass seeds!

Faith A said...

Aw! poor Ruby, you certainly do look better, thank goodness for that we were all so worried. Thanks for sharing the beautiful card.
You musn't be too hard on Mum for not showing herself off with the wax fiasco, she probably forgot while she was in pain!

Whimsey said...

Hello sweet Ruby; so glad you wrote us, I get tired of listening to your mom.

JUST KIDDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm going to be in so much trouble!!!

But I think you look adorable...and truth be told? Your mom is just jealous you got a facelift and she didn't! :D

Glad you are on the mend; hope the same for Ryan...careful going forward, we don't want any more surgeries, this is about all your mom can take!

Hugs....and a belly rub, or ear rub, whichever you prefer!

Susan said...

Doggy hugs xx
