Bugg is Fine!

We are home and the Bugg is resting! This morning and all day I was so nervous.

At the Vet's Office I took a picture with Dixie before I let her go, just to calm our (read: my) nerves. I was MUCH more sad/scared this time than when we took her for her spay. It shows how much more attached I am to her, day by day I just love my puggies more and more!

This is Dixie on the way home. She was shaking and very out of it and scared when I picked her up. After a few minutes though she was back to her old self and licking/kissing me and the people in the Vet's Office. It ended up costing us almost $200 less than our estimate, which was a great surprise. Gosh I love our Vet! They did dental work on her at the same time, since her breath is kickin' and her teeth are kind of icky. Dixie had two teeth extracted! Her breath is still stinky though, but the one tooth missing right at the front of her underbite is adorable enough to make up for it.

After we left the office, I let Dixie pee in the grass. She pee-mailed all the nice doggies who will visit there, then hopped in my car. Then I noticed the light brown stuff ALL OVER my car's seat... I said to myself, "please be mud, please be mud..." No, it was POOP! She had a huge chunk on her paw. I found a glove in my car and wiped up most of it and her paw. My car wreaked of poo though, and I had to quick scrub it down when we got home. That must have been like snack time for Dixie, aka the Baroness Poopeater.

Dixie has a shaved off section where her emergency IV catheter thing is (I don't even remember if that's what it's called... but you know what I mean.) They put it in at no cost as a precaution. Her butt bump is totally gone and off for a biopsy! There are a few little stitches that we'll get out in about 7-10 days. She is not very energetic right now and Sophie is very unhappy about that.

We are just glad to have our baby back home. I hope the biopsy shows that it was nothing so I won't be worried anymore! In any case, I know she is super loved by us, Sophie, and definitely the excellent staff at our Vet's Office. Oh and she knows she is loved by you blogger doggers too! Thanks for everything, everydoggie!

Poor little poo paw girl!

Yay Dixie! We're glad your butt-bump is gone and hope there was nothing bad in it. And Poo-Paw...ah, poo-paw. It was just a matter of time before your mommy and her car experienced that, right?

The Devil Dog said...

Poor little girl. We hope it turns out to be nothing serious. Glad everything went well at the vets. Mom says she knows what you mean about loving us so much. Of course, it's hard not to.

Sending you some pug love, Dixie, from Minnesota! I'm glad everything went well with the surgery and that you even had a poo snack on the way home. I'm crossing my paws for good test results.

Duke said...

Our paws are crossed that your butt bump is nothing more than a butt bump! It was so nice to see you riding in the car going home, Dixie - even if you did have poopoo tootsies!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

YAY! We're so glad that Bugg is ok!

We have to admit though that we're a little disappointed that there was no pic of her in one of those big cone/collars.

My peeps are taking me to Little Rascals Pet Motel (all you Indy locals, google's the COOLEST!) and then they're off on vacation for a few days.

Kisses to both girls (and a few extra for my Sophie Puggy Muffin),

I am so glad Dixie is recovering nicely from her surgery/biopsy.

And yay 200$ cheaper! Always makes me feel good about going to the vet!

It's an IV - catheter is usually for pee :) Go snuggle your girls and I hope the poop is gone! bleh!

Clover said...

Yay Dixie! Glad you are home and okay! I am sorry I missed the whole butt bump fiasco. I would have sent my well wishes to you. I am sending them now! Hope you feel back to normal soon!
Love Clover xo

Dixie Bugg,

I didn't know of your Butt Bump issue! I'm sorry that I could have missed such a big scary moment in your life. I'm glad to hear that you are okay now and that hopefully the biopsy will come back negative on all icky stuff. Good job in printing your paws all over your Mama's car. I'm sure she did not appreciate it! Get well soon!

We DO love her and we are glad she is home safe. ALso, any story that involves Poo is a funny story :)

Awesome that Dixie is back home and feeling better. As for the poop, maybe she was still loopy from the knock-out stuff and thought it was a fudge pop.
