What We Did In May...

                                                                    On I-90 to N. Idaho
                                                     This is my dad and me the day of my surgery.

  I was feeling a bit loopy.  You can see it in my eyes.

 A few days later I was getting used to "the cone of shame"...Still not liking it though.

                                                          Here is Hootie Bug at the Mutt Strutt.
                                                           Hootie and me after getting my cone off.

May was a busy month for us.  We traveled to our cabin in North Idaho from Phoenix and made the 1500 mile trip in 2 days!  Daddy was an amazing driving machine.  He didn't even stop to blow his nose. BOL. We were our usual well behaved selves unlike Dad. Of course we've made this trip many times before. For fun, Hootie got to go to the Mutt Strutt for Pawsitive Works (I couldn't go due to my stitches--see later explanation.) and he won the costume contest and brought home a nice basket of treats. Good work brother!  OH, and Hootie and Miss Sally Ann Stanley announced on Face Book that they were secretly married!!  Yes, they finally tied the knot.  Here is the announcement:

BREAKING NEWS! (Finally) Mr. Hairy "Hootie" Houdini-Phillips is proud to announce that he and his fiancé of 2 years, Miss Belleville Sally Ann Stanley, were married March 1st, 2013, St. David's Day. They eloped to the village of Gretna Green, in the south of Scotland. Neither party's parents were made aware of this secret ceremony until just recently. The happy couple will be maintaining homes in Arizona, Georgia and Idaho so they can take care of Hootie's aging parents and also enjoy the night-life of Atlanta with Sally Ann's mother and little brother, Andy.

Okay, you are probably wondering why I, Baby Rocket Dog, have the "cone of shame" in the photos above.  Well, I had an operation not long after we arrived in farrr North Idaho in May.  It seems I am a lumpy dog.  While giving me a bath in April my daddy found a lump the size of a human thumb just below my bum. The folks took me to a veterinarian  in Wickenburg, Arizona and he said it should be removed when we got back up to Idaho.  My surgery by Dr. Hall went well and it was determined that I had a perianal adenoma (which is benign). That was a good thing.  Two weeks with that stupid cone on was no treat, but Daddy and Mommy would take it off when they could keep a close watch on me.   (I really wanted to lick it...those stitches were itchy!)  I had my stitches removed 2 weeks later and now I'm free of the cone.  Hootie seems unusually interested in my bum now, but other than that, things are back to normal.  I hope your May was lovely!

Smooches from,
Baby Rocket Dog
