It seemed like I was only there for a little while and then it was time to go home with Dawn. I am not sure what happened but I guess I went to sleep for a while. I don't think I had much fun because when I woke up, my mouth was kinda sore. Dawn was very happy to see me but she was crying when she hugged me, it was a very tight hug. She talked to the Dr. for a few minutes and then we went home.
For the next couple of days, Dawn fed only a very tiny bit of food in the neck tube. It tasted good, but was still kinda weird. She cleaned the tube every time she fed me and put a funny thing on my face, I think she called it a muzzle. I didn't really like the muzzle but Dawn said I had to wear it, so I did. About a week went by and I was getting a lot more food in my neck tube, still weird but oh so yummy! I went back to see Dr. Bonner and she said I was only 29 lbs. now?? Dawn feeds me every 2 hours, I don't know why I was littler than I was before?
I really wanted to play with my puppy friends and toys after a while, but Dawn wouldn't let me. She was always saying no and that it was for my own good, boring!!! Since I couldn't have much fun, I decided I would just chew on Dawn a little bit, that was fun but she didn't like it too much. Dawn gave me some sleepy pills to help me rest. Dr. said it would help me. I didn't mind too much because she snuggled me a lot more when I was sleepy, it was soooo nice.
Still no toys or friends to play with and that stinky old muzzle was getting in the way of fun too. One morning I woke up early and the muzzle was little bit loose. Hmmm, this could be fun to play with. I wiggled around a bit and got the top of it into my mouth. Yep, I have skill for sure! I chewed on it for a bit and a big chunk went down my throat, not as good as food but it was okay. I guess I was making too much noise having fun and Dawn woke up. She came in to take me potty and freaked out????? What the heck, I never heard her say those things before, she seemed upset but I didn't know why.
Well, back to Dr. again. This time we stayed close to home and saw Dr. Duval. They took me to the back and took a funny picture of the inside of my tummy. They said it was an x-ray, whatever that is. Dr. said I would be fine, checked the inside of my mouth, nothing interesting there but she said it looked fantastic, then we went back home. I thought I was done with that stinky old muzzle, but no..... Colton and Rachel brought home one that was really hard to get off. No fun again!
