Surround yourself with positive people,
energy, and situations;
always avoid negativity.


Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So, love the people who treat you right.

Forgive, and then forget about the ones who don't.

Special Announcement

We interrupt your regularly scheduled, mundane Monday to bring you this very special announcement!

Today was my 12-week post TPLO surgery appointment!
I was kinda nervous on the ride down to Atlanta.

I reflected on all I've been through the past 12 weeks, and believe me, it has been no picnic!

The waiting for the doctor was the worst part, but I loved the fluffy rug.
Sniff, sniff, hey, another Lab was here earlier today!

Check out the cool anti-slip, waterproof vinyl floors at the vet's office.
Looks just like real hardwood, huh?
Wish we had these at home...

I'm thrilled to report Dr. Noone was all smiles, and said the words I've been waiting to hear, "Hoss, you have healed successfully, and are
 Good to Go!"
(No idea why calls me Hoss,

Did someone say,

I know where I'm heading!!!

The kids are going back to school and it's time to reclaim the lake!

We would like to thank Dr. Thomas Noone and the excellent, professional staff at Veterinary Referral Surgical Practice  for making it possible for Buddy to have a normal, fun-filled life once again.

We're taking a blogging break and
will catch y'all on the flip side!

Good to hear he is all mended! And go for it! Time in the lake is far more important than blogging - so long as you have more cute photos when you return!

YOU DID IT! Now you are brand new bionic dog ready for action! That was the best thing ever for me to read first thing in the morning.

Hey! Those vet floors are da bomb. I, too, wish we could get some of those.

hee hee

So very happy to hear the news about your healing. Just can't keep a good Lab down.

Cat said...

Hi there Buddy, I came over for a visit because Madi's Mum told me you had two big surgeries this summer. I'm glad to read that you are all better. Our woofie also had a big surgery at the end of may to insert a plate and pins in her leg to repair a snapped femur.

You won't read about Rio on my blog because it is only about the cats, but I just wanted to pop over and say hi to Buddy and congratulations on his clean bill of health :-)

Moose said...

OMD Hooorrray! Non-slip floors? At an ortho vet? You would think this was commonplace but nope! Moose had an awesome vet but my one complain was the slippery floors. I saw lots of people on the orthodog group say the same about their ortho vet too so you musta found a smart one Buddy! I am so excited for you!!!
