Sunny Pupdate (@7/31/22)

 10 days post surgery and Sunny is doing great. Lots of snuggles on the couch.

 She doesn't show much interest in licking her incision, so we've downsized from the large "cone of shame"  to a donut collar.
 We're doing "stretchy-flexy" exercises 2-3 times of day.
 Her incisions are healing VERY nicely!
 ....and the swelling has gone down almost  completely!
Now.....to come up with ideas on how to keep Sunny's  mentals occupied, without stimulating too much of her physicals!




Nature Friday - Under the Sea

Welcome to that wonderful Friday each month where Nature Friday comes together with YAM Aunty's FFF!!  Make sure to visit YAM Aunty HERE to get the Rulez and join the FFF fun!!  
Under the Sea
by Rosy
What fun it would be 
to live under the sea,
With Nemo, Crush and the Mermaid FiFi.
We'd swim around with the turtles 
Be friends with the sharks
We'd see the squid, Squirtle
and stay up after dark.

I'm not sure about dinner tho, what would it be?
No fishies, or crabbies or lobster I eat.
Where are the cookies, the jerky and crunchies?
Looks like I'll have to go home when I get the munchies!

Show us your nature! It can be flowers, your current weather, a scene out of your window, or maybe a picture from a vacation, walk or other journey! Any kind of nature picture will do! If you don't see the link below, click HERE  to go to our Hoppity Page.


Thankful Thursday - Sharky Style

Today, Sunny wanted us to tell you how thankful for all the POTP everyone sent her way. She is powering through her recovery so far, and we know part of that is because of the power of prayer and pawsitivity! 
Now it's up to Mama and Daddy to slow Sunny down so she doesn't over do it!

Thank you Brian for hosting the

"This tastes a little funny!"


I don't know Mama....that was pretty silly!!

Do you have a favorite Shark Punny??

We are joining Sandee at  Comedy Plus for the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop this week!


Sunny Shark Aaaws - Plus a Pupdate

Let Shark Week begin!!!

Sunny Pupdate @7/25
(Arriving Home and Establishing a routine)
I'll be documenting Sunny's recovery here on Mondays, (after a cute Aaaw-worthy picture Sunny of course). If you continue please note, I'll be showing her incision healing progress toward the end of the post.

 We were very impressed with the detailed post op instructions given to us by the surgeon's assistant. He explained in detail everything we needed to do for Sunny during the next 2 weeks. She will go in for her first post op check up August 9th(about 2 weeks from now). 
After a short ride home from the surgeon's office on Saturday...
....Sunny arrived home safe as sound, albeit a bit naked, and chilly.
 We put an extra blanket in her crate after seeing that she didn't mind being covered up.

 We are icing the incision areas 2-3 times a day for the first week.

 Sunny has been cooperative most of the time but her left leg has been very sensitive and painful. This is making it difficult to ice for more than a couple of minutes at a time. After icing, we flex/stretch her back legs to keep her muscles conditioned. She does stand on her own, and we keep her crated and coned to ensure she doesn't move around too much.

We have a sling to help her get around. It is a big help keeping her weight distributed and lets us support her weight, especially when she goes potty. We are doing 3-5 outside potty walks a day, no more than 3-5 minutes each.


Her right knee looks good, a bit red and a little swollen, not bad for 36 hours after surgery.
 Her left knee is a bit more knarly, more of what we expected to see 36 hours after surgery. She is also favoring this knee/leg a bit more.
We're keeping an eye on both incisions and will report any issues to the Vet if needed. They warned us things would probably look worse before they got better.

Besides wanting to spend more time up and about, Sunny is being a very good patient so far! 

She is on a variety of pain killers and suppressors, along with an anti-inflammatory. All of these help keep her calm and sleepy most of the time.


Sunny Update


 At about 4pm MST yesterday Sunny had her surgery. According to Dr. Freeman, her surgeon, it went "Pawfectly"! She stayed at the hospital last night, and will continue her stay today and this evening. This is to ensure she is medicated, if needed, and comfortable enough to go potty at home.
We can't wait to pick her up at 9:30am tomorrow! Although, that's when our hard work begins.
Thanks again for all your thoughts and prayers, we will keep you updated on her progress.



Nature Friday Through the Years

 Happy Nature Friday and thank you for helping me celebrate my 5th birthday this week! Mama says it was a "milestone" birthday and worth a whole week of "look back" sort of posts!

Thankful for Family and Friends

Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes. I had a nice quiet birthday, and hope to have a family pawty once Sunny is back home and feeling better.

On this Birthday Week Thankful Thursday, I want to say how thankful I am for my family and friends!

 I was lucky to have Angel Arty as my awesome big brother and travel buddy. I still still miss him a bunch.  Mama and I like to sit and look back at pictures and videos remembering the fun times we had together.
Jakey and Sunny are great siblings can't wait to get back to  going on lots more adventures when we get back to traveling in CeCe next year!
Most of all, I am very lucky to have such a pawsome Daddy(and Mama). Mama and I have lots of fun together and I just love being a Daddy's girl! 
I have also met a few of our Blogville friends in  the furs!!
We had a Mini Bar in 2019, and I got to meet my Uncles Murphy and Stanley along with Angel Arty's Best Gal Mabel!

I got to meet Bailie and Madison from My GBGV Life, when I was at BlogPaws in
 I met Koru Bear for the first time at BlogPaws too.  He is Angel Sugar's little brother
and I have been lucky enough to see him(and his brother Kenzo) through the years when we visit Carmel, California!

My most memorable Golden meeting, of course, was my first kiss with Angel Declan.
I am so thankful for all our friends who stop by and see us during the week. We have all laughed and cried together.  I have made so many friends, not only in person, but virtually in Blogville during the past 5 years. We are thankful for each and every one!  
We thank YOU for taking the time to stop by and see us!
