WHILE WE WERE AWAY….

 

It has been so long…just too long…

We thought we had things sorted – a photo post 3-4 times a week, one proper post per week and at least once a week blog visits when we go visit all our friends.

But nothing has been going according to plan. We just couldn’t keep up. Then again, there isn’t much one can do if your secretary/typist falls sick without arranging for a replacement.

Yes, Friends.

Our Mummy had taken an off from everything. She has had a surgery.

Now, don’t you lose fur worrying about it.

She needed to have this surgery for some abdominal ailment for quite sometime and was just postponing it. So this was an elective surgery and nothing like a terribly worrisome emergency.

Anyway, she is mending and mending quite well too. She is more like her usual self, though she isn’t fully active and still not going with us for our walks. Something about us being too boisterous.

Nonsense!

We have been such good pups all throughout her surgery & recovery period. We have been snuggling a lot and keeping her nice and warm. Never once have we jumped up on her demanding to play, except of course the day she came back from the hospital. Couldn’t help it – she was gone for over 24 hours and we were really worried.

Apart from that one episode, we have been very careful not to stress her. We don’t want her going off to the hospital again. A sleepy, slow Mummy is better than No mummy any day!

We are really thankful Mummy found the Most Wonderful doctor for herself. She had been ignoring her problems for so long the state of her insides was pretty complicated.

Not only did the doctor do a wonderful job on her (we got to see the video of her surgery!) he was very kind and caring and took good care of her all throughout.

Dog Bless him!

And guess what? He lives with a little Weiner Pup named ‘Bertie’.

Well, well! We certainly approve Mummy’s choice of doctors. We haven’t met him yet but from what we hear of him, we think he would smell quite alright. After all a Weiner pawson can’t be all that wrong. What do you think?

Anyway, Mummy is on the mend. And of course the best part of the whole episode is that she has been at home all this time. The whole day, with us!

It is another matter that she sleeps most of the time. But then, it isn’t all that bad. The weather here is changing. We have the first inklings of a real winter. The mornings are chilly and it is dark now when we go for our evening walks. Soon, Mummy says, the mornings will be dark and cold too.

This will be our first real winter. Hyderabad winters never got cold and dark, just a wee bit misty.

Well, let’s wait and watch how different it is going to be here in Delhi.

For now, we are enjoying the warm sun that shines softly through the morning mist, the crackling of the fallen leaves, the soft blankets and spicy evening treats…

Sorry bout your mommy's surgery, but it's good to hear she's doing well, except for being sleepy. M says you needs lots of rest for the body to heal. Great pictures.

We missed you all while your mommy had her surgery! I'm sure it is nice to have her around all day, even when sleeping. We hope she continues to improve and is back to her old self soon.

Drools and licks,
