it's happier!

I'm stealing the computer at my family's house so this will be short, but I wanted to update everyone on my angry pancreas. Thank you everyone who send happy pancreas thoughts my way, because it worked - it is much happier than it was! I still don't know what I did to make it upset, but I said I was sorry and it accepted my apology. I did have to go to the vet'narin, though. And just like Mean Sister Fig said they would, they stole some of my blood. I made it quite difficult for them, and squirmed and wiggled my way through almost everyone there before they finally called in the doctor himself to hold me down. Fig should be pretty proud of me for that! In the process I got quite a nice battle scar. It's actually just a bruise, but it keeps getting bigger and bigger as time goes by, so I'm hoping maybe it will take over my whole body withing the next couple days and Massah will give me lots and lots of treats because she feels so bad for me. You can see it on my neck here:

A couple embarrassing things happened while I was at the vet'narin.... First of all, when I walked in the door, they said "There's Tadpole with his diarrhea!" Now granted, there was no one else in the waiting room at the time, but STILL! For one thing - there might have been a cute little doxie like Luckie or Lorenza there and that would have severely hurt my masculine ego, and secondly - I am known as "Tad with the diarrhea" at my vet'narin?! Good grief, I don't get it THAT much! That's just humiliating. The second little embarrassment involved the waiting room, my mad pancreas, and the inability to hold it in. While Massah was handing over her life savings and we were getting ready to leave... I just couldn't help myself and made some watery poopy right there on the floor in front of everyone. Massah was very embarrassed. And I was too. Come to think of it, that might be why I'm known as "Tadpole with the diarrhea" there....

We're now at the family's house and I'm sticking close to Massah. Smothering her nose and mouth with my neck and body always makes me feel better. I won't be able to update till Tuesday, so I hope everyone enjoys the rest of the weeked!

Hey Taddy...
That owie looks like it hurts bad! I'm so happy you are feeling better...I was worried about you! I can't believe that's what they call you at the vet's that is embarrassing! Oh well, at least they take good care of you.

I'll miss you...see you on Tuesday.

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Oh Tad,
That's a mean looking bruise. I hope you get better soon. We still love you with or without your watery poops. hehe...
PS : I'm glad you think I look cute! *blush*
Come back soon!!

wally said...

Aw Tad--You deserve loads of sympathy for that bruise. It could spoil your good looks!

Hope you're doing much better and I think it's hilarious that you pooped at the vet. That's what they get for stealing your precious blood. They're probably going to try to clone you, you know.

Wear your scar proudly. (Do you get the Purple Paw for being wounded in battle?)

About calling you "Tadpole with the Diahrrea"... I think the next time you go in you should say to the nurses and doctors... "Hey, there's Christy with the thunder thighs, and there's John with the bad fashion sense, and hey, I see Dr. Vampire there with the beer gut. Nice to see you all!" I think their nickname for you would change, and pronto!

AireZen to you my friend,

That bruise looks so painful. YOu better get a bucket full of treats.

I can't believe they said that about you should have pooped that stuff right on them!

Hey my mom gets bruises like that when they take her blood. I am glad your pancreas is happeir now. See why I hate vets. They do things like call you names. Want me to mail them a box of poop? (I stole that from Joe)

Quinvale AstaLaVista Baby said...

Poor Tad, You look just like Jackson did after the Vampireterian took blood from him. Hope your poopies get better soon! xxx Asta down under

wally said...

By the way Tad--I forgot to tell you how COOL your massah's shirt is. My ma ape has the same one! Did you see the Cubbies win today???!!? It's good for your pancreas, I bet!


Nanook The Newfoundland said...

oh my goodness how did I miss all this? I'm sorry Tad! I hope you feel all better soon. Convince your massah to give you sweet potatoes!

Oscar Airedale said...

Owie bruise. I guess maybe we all get them under our fur, but you can show your battle scars off!

Ouch! Actually that bruise kinda looks like a tatoo. Tuff Tadpole! (with the Diahrrea). Poor little guy.

Feel better soon! We'll miss you bunches!

Sophie Brador said...

That's a nasty bruise Tad! You could just tell Fig you fought like crazy and use some makeup for the battle scars.

Are you sure they were saying, Tadpole with the Diarama?

Butchy & Snickers said...

Hey Tadpole,
We're sorry you haven't been well lately. Hope your angry pancreas settles down now. We think it's funny that you pooed right before leaving the vet, hehehehehe! That's what they get for making fun of you. Too bad your vampire bite had to bruise. That's where they stuck Snickers to test her blood for the thyroid problem. The vet told us that the neck vein quits bleeding faster than the leg vein for some reason. Take care Tadpole.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Diarrhea is awesome when you share it with friends! At least you got it out of your system before getting in the car like some doggies I know (simon).

Your bruise looks like a hickey. So maybe you could tell everyone that you got it from some sweet girl pup.
