• It’s not just about the dog itself, but the relationship you have with it!

  • Dedicated to Bart, who had the Most Beautiful Tail

    It's very simple. Dogs and cats and other talented animals have tails; their tails, with their thousands of flourishes, provide them with a wonderfully complex language of arabesques, not only for what they think and feel and suffer, but for every mood and vibration in their feeling tone. We have no tails, and since the more lively among us need some form of expression, we make ourselves paintbrushes and pianos and violins..." _Hermann Hesse

Thomas’ Trip Home (Chapter 4.1)

Because we now have some nice photos of Thomas’ trip home from the veterinary hospital, we’ll reverse time to show them to you. As you know he’s now back in foster care, where he’s recuperating.

The poor guy is on a boatload of medications, which tend to upset his stomach. As a result, he’s not eating all that well, even with an anti-nausea drug. His foster mom is checking in with the vet and perhaps they’ll have a suggestion.

Otherwise he continues to do well and his recovery is progressing without any surprises. This morning he accompanied his foster mom out into the yard and enjoyed relaxing with her while she did some gardening. All in all, a nice day.

This is what his departure from the veterinary hospital looked like this past Tuesday:

Coming out to the lobby to meet his ride home (foster mom).

This week he has a new veterinary student assigned to his case. She helps with his checkout process.

One last belly check. Whew, much less swollen!Okay Thomas, you’re officially discharged and free to go. (What no wheelchair ride out?)

Hmm…this seems familiar. Hard to believe I’ve been through so much since the last time I posed next to this sign on my way in last week. Bye Bye nice doctors. Thanks for all you did for me! Nothing personal, but I’m so much happier taking the outward bound photo.

OH LOOK…it’s my car! I’d know that scent anywhere. And a nice fresh blanket for the trip. Oh happy day!

Oh thank goodness they came to get me. This is just the BEST! I get to go home now. Did you hear…I’m going HOME! Yea yea, we’re on the way home! Can we leave now, huh? Are we there yet? When will we be there…start the engine!

  1. I am sure Thomas is thrilled to be home from the hospital!

    When Buzz’s chemo messed up his digestive tract and made him nauseated, metoclopramide worked pretty well on him.

    It did mess up his mind if I gave him a full dose, so I gave him a half dose. (He’d walk across me to try to walk on an end table — something he NEVER dreamed of doing, in his right mind. I read that people have some mental symptoms with the “metoclope,” as we called it when we told him we were going to give it to him.)

    I don’t know if that might be something for Thomas to try.

  2. What a happy smile! I am so pleased that Thomas is doing so well. Just a testament to the spirit of the Corgi!
