RADAR IS HOME

RADAR ISN"T BROKEN ANYMORE
Hey Hounders,
Good news from Bumpass News Central. Radar has returned home. Dad picked him up this evening on his way home from work. Turned out he wasn't being tutored for flunking his poop test. He was broken and had to be fixed, that's all. The Vet just wanted some of his poop to look at as part of a wellness examination. Radar is in a crate in the big bedroom and he is sleeping a lot. Dad didn't get any pictures of him to post yet and that's too bad because he both looks and is acting funny. It's confusing enough for the little guy being blind, but he is wearing a GReat big dunce cap, not ON his head, but around his head. He picked up gravel with it walking in our driveway and boy was he a LITTLE woozy. He was evidently licking where he shouldn't a been licking. He is on drugs and his privates are red and swollen. Dad told mom that when he saw Radar privates he almost passed out from sympathy pain while he looked at the incision with the LVT. Dad says Radar doesn't have any stitches because the Vet glued his incision closed. OUCH! We mean like do they use Super Glue or Gorilla Glue; maybe Elmer's, who knows. Dad says that Radar is supposed to be quiet for a few days and we can't bother him (Isn't that like the opposite of how it usually is?). Dad also has to put some drops in Radar's ears for an infection and he gets pain pills for 3 days. The cone head duration is at least 3 days and maybe more if Radar is persistent in his licking. We'll post some photos tomorrow as we expect radar won't be groggy tomorrow and will be walking better. At least he's home with all the rest of us who really love him, even though he is a PITA.

I hope Radar is feeling better soon and ouch for him. I love the costumes as long as they are on other dogs and not me. My friends Mollie and Bobo are http://kwing-dogeared.blogspot.com/.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

p.s. Thanks for checking them out. I am so in awe of people like you and Khyra's Mom and Mollie and Bobo's Mom who are so selfless and give so much of their time to help animals. I just think sometimes a little recognition is nice and thank you. Anne

I'm glad Radar is home and all fixed up -

Maybe they used some Zap-A-Gap on him!

Ah yes: R&R is one of the most important things in life!

Happy Friday!

Glad to hear that Radar is fixed and glued. Those cones are totally difficult to walk in, but they can be great weapons.

Dog By Nature said...

Give Radar a big pet from us! Poor little guy and he has the cone of dom too?!

Morgan in Pittsburgh said...

better watch out! he might of been tutored on how to slap the rest of you silly if you make fun of him. I've seen it happen - really!

The vet said Jack had to be calm and quiet for 10 days after he was tutored. I just laughed....

Huffle Mawson said...

Poor Radar. I hope he feels better soon.

Fin said...

This whole Radar thing sounds suspicious.

The OP Pack said...

Poor Radar, we both have been there and done that. The worst part is the dunce hat or lampshade - so humiliating.

We will be getting lots of R & R this weekend as we head to Kamp Kennel.

woos, the OP Pack

Sending Terrier Vibes to Radar for a quick recovery. Oh man. Poor Bumpass Hounds if the Terrier Vibes really take effect! Bad enough to have Teka bouncing off walls, but a Golden Semi Puppy...whoooooooo

Oh, poor little Radar! We hope yim and his privates are feeling better furry soon! Be sure to give him lots of smooches (when he's up for them!) Hope all of you have a furry fabulous weekend!

Ben said...

Hang in there Radar. A few more days and this will all just be a distant memory.

Maybe one of those inflatable neck rings might be easier on the pup.

Sierra Rose said...

Poor Radar. Hope he will be okay. Of course, since he's blind and scared now, you'll have to sleep in the crate with him. Happy dreams. :)

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

I'm glad Radar is home and all fixed up. I didn't have to wear a cone when I was fixed because I didn't bother anything, but Kat had to wear one and boy did she milk it. Radar, you should do the same. In fact, I prescribe one happy heart per hour for you.

STEP UP TO ADOPT A PET

If you can, please consider opening your home to a homeless animal, preferably a dog or cat or other domesticated animal; livestock does better on farms and wild animals do better in zoos and parks. Your local Humane Society or SPCA or Animal Shelter has a wide selection of could be, should be, pets looking for new homes. If you can't adopt, perhaps you can at least become a sponsor. We'll show you how to help out Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary (AHGRRS) on our blog page, but you can help out any organization of your choice, but please help; contribute or volunteer.

PLEASE HELP SPONSOR A SENIOR OR SPECIAL NEEDS GOLDEN

CAN'T ADOPT; BECOME AN ANGEL.
So many Senior and Special Needs Goldens do not find "forever homes". Many of these dogs have above average medical needs and costs, are maintained on "special" diets, or have other extraordinary needs. Your donations can be targeted towards a particular Senior or Special needs Golden Retriever. As a sponsor, you will receive updates about your "special" Golden, and will be mentioned in our quarterly newsletter as the dog's sponsor. We also accept Paypal donations. Please keep in mind that we are a non-profit organization and that your donation is fully tax-deductible. Please just write the Golden's name in the memo line of your check or Paypal submission when sponsoring a Golden Retriever.
