Mozzie’s Post-Surgery Journal: Day 15

Mozzie’s Journal: Mom keeps singing about, “Tomorrow” and loving it a lot. Dad doesn’t seem as annoyed by this as I am. I figure as long as they keep rubbing my ears everything must be okay. Ear rubbins and chin rubbins make everything okay. My parents keep insisting that I use this ramp but IContinue reading “Mozzie’s Post-Surgery Journal: Day 15”

Mozzie’s Post-Surgery Journal: Day 13 and Day 14

Mozzie’s Journal: I thought they said two weeks. The humans are liars or I can’t do math or both. Probably both. Either way, the cone has been on too long. I am restless.

Then, IContinue reading “Mozzie’s Post-Surgery Journal: Day 10”

Mozzie’s Journal: Dad took us out this morning and there was – you wouldn’t believe it – a squirrel! Kita jumped off the edge of our front steps and ran across the yard.

Mozzie’s Post-Surgery Journal: Day 5

Mozzie’s Journal: 0500 hours: Kita alerted me to a squirrel on the deck. We promptly employed Squirrel Protocol and began to alert all neighborhood canines to the squirrel’s presence.

Mozzie’s Post-Surgery Journal: Day 4

Mozzie’s Journal: The cone is still present. I have figured out that if I close the edges of the cone around my snout and pull my head backwards, both Mom and Dad react very strongly.
