Under the weather and in big trouble......

Morning to all my lovely bloggy buddies....I've been a bit under the weather.....well it started off with a bit of an itch at the beginning of the week and hey girls you know if you've got an itch you just can't help yourself you just gotta scratch it.   I'd been having a good old sneaky scratch everytime I went out to the garden well away from Mum's prying eyes because before you know she would be investigating to see if I have fleas or the like...as if with my noble parentage I would allow such creatures to reside in my coat....perish the thought.   But I took the scratching a bit too far and ended up with my back covered in blood.....enough said I am quickly in transit to the vet who by the way is just the nicest lady and with impeccable taste too...greeting me with her usual "Hello Gorgeous".  After a thorough MOT from the Doggy Doc....but what checking my ears teeth heart and temperature.....not very dignified I tell you...has to do with my itch I don't know but it turns out I may have picked up a thorn and in my efforts to get rid of the blighter ended up with a huge red raw sore.
After an antibiotic and steroid injection...cream for Mum to rub on twice a day and a few treats for being a brave soldier.....it's time to go home but first we have to pay the bill.....oops the cubbyhole stash purse is now lighter by £65.  No National Health Service for us dogs but hey the upside is we don't have to wait days to see the doc...a quick phone call and 20 minutes later I am trotting in for my consultation.....being a dog has it's advantages or so I thought.
We've had another sick boy in the cubbyhole.. Mr Dyson hasn't been feeling too well either....off his food and very lethargic and after much whispering behind my back with the Dyson Doc.....Mum tells me it is all my fault....he was suffering big time from eating all that hair....between you and me folks I think he's just a greedy sod eating everything in his path and all that paper...sticky stuff and goodness knows what from the cubbyhole can't do his digestive system any favours.  We are round about the same age but his MOT was free because he came with a 5 year guarantee.....so at this moment in time he is definitely the blue-eyed boy....unlike me who is in deep doodahs.
BECAUSE... I've been very naughty...while Mum was in the shower yesterday morning I just couldn't resist a good old scratch.....crikey blood everywhere and we are back to square one....another visit to the vet and more medication...let me tell you Mum is now having a major grumph....another £72 out of the crafty stash box....so she decided to take drastic action and I've been forced to wear one of Dad's T shirts...how undignified.
and the evidence of another scratchy session is there for everyone to see...I'll be in big trouble again.....well it's so darned itchy what's a boy to do but I definitely need to keep a low profile...head well under the radar stuff for the next few days so no way will I be uttering one little word of complaint about these pesky sticky pads.

But I have a little secret and I know it's safe with all you lovely ladies....as you all know Mum is deserting the cubbyhole for a trip away and guess who will be having another root around for some crafty stash to give-away but I have to wait until she's gone....so off to have a bit of a power snooze...need to conserve all my energy for my Cubbyhole Rummage.....see you all soon.
Big Hugs and Furry Snuggles

Oh Buddy you are in the self inflicted wars, think yourself lucky it's only Dads T shirt you are wearing and not mittens so you really can't scratch. Feel better soon.

Denise said...

Hi Kath & Buddy. long time no see,life not been good lately but things are picking up and I'm getting the urge to get my stash out again. I'm so sorry to hear your not too well Buddy. Itching is an awful thing for you poor gorgeous canines.Hope it clears up real soon. Meg has to go see her lovely doggie Doctor: Mr Nic, for her boosters and yearly health check on Tuesday. Haven't told her as she won't be impressed.
Where's your Mum jetting off to this time? Hope she has a great time.
Hugs and tickles behind the ears....Denise & Meg

Buddy you do make me laugh and we are so sorry to hear of your itchy coat....hopefully with mum and the vets help and of course wearing that designer t-shirt you will be better in a couple of days.
A big hug and cuddle.

Ruthie said...

Aw Buddy - you know its for your own good not to scratch! I think dad's tshirt was rather fetching - I dont think there will be many handsome lads around wearing one of those! Might just swing things with Ruby! Wear it with pride!

Laura said...

Poor Buddy, hope the skin heals soon. A common pet owner story written so well, made me laugh!

Christine B. said...

Oh poor you Buddy, It's really aweful when you got an itch. You look very fetching in your t-shirt. Just get Mum to glimmer mist it. You'll look the bees knees. You must be a good boy or you'll be wearing it alot longer. Get well soon. Hugs to you and your Mum.xxxChrisB

Joy said...

Oh dear me thats not good. Your misfortune has given us such a chuckle though. xxx

Sarah A said...

Oh I am sorry Buddy but you had me chuckling all the way through your post, especially the photo of you modelling that fetching T-Shirt lol.
Seriously hope you are feeling better soon and that your itch leaves you alone... but I understand you got an itch you gotta scratch it!

Kim Piggott said...

KraftyKaren said...

Aww Buddy I am sure your Mum still loves you even though you have made a great big dent in her stash fund. Hope you are better soon.

Andrea said...

oooh poor Buddy,

hugs andrea

ursula Uphof said...

AAAWWW Bud,Poor you. Hope your itch goes away soon, and you get back to your normal self, Although nothing wrong with your chattering, LOVE it. Take care and no scratching mind you, so you can get rid of the T shirt. Tell Mum I send her big hugs too.

Kym's Crafty Cards said...

Kath, I saw the title of the post and thought it was you that was poorly and was concerned about you going away. In respect of pennies it would have been better you than Buddy - crikes it does cost a lot to see the vet - not that I'd know as the only dogs I have are the toy variety. Well, thanks to dad's T-shirts I hope Buddy is on mend very very soon. Best wishes, kym xxx

Sue said...

PMSL oh buddy that post sure brightened my day, sorry you have a mega itch n mum is short in craft stash pot, but you did make me giggle, keep ya head down boy, oh n i think the t-shirt is very fetching, ask mum to add some embelies to it!!! Have lovely day, sue,xx

sparklygirl-Tina said...

Hiya Buddy - so sorry you've had to see the Doggy Doc not once but twice - I hope that she gave you a nice big liver treat for being such a good boy having to go through your temperature being taken.......

Now I think your dad's t-shirt quite suits you and at least by covering up your scratchy spot it might stand a chance of healing properly.... I wouldn't moan to mum about those pesky little squares stuck on your paw - I think she has had quite a week what with you and Mr Dyson both not being well - let alone all her cubbyhole duties she has to do. I think between me and you she really deserves that trip away....

Anyway furry boy you snuggle down and have a nice snooze and look forward to hearing from you again soon.

Big hugs and kisses.

Tina

joey said...

Oh Buddy Bless you Sweetie!!! I do hope that itching stops soon else you will keep getting intot trouble for a while yet, tis only cos your mum cares!!! xxx

NGCARDS said...

Oh Buddy you are a naughty boy, I have to say though you do look rather dashing in your Dad's T-Shirt! Get better soon! xxx

Rosietoes said...

Ah! poor Buddy. Hopefully all that special cream will deal with the itch. Your chum Rosie, my little poodle, had a trip to the vet's on Monday that cost her Mummy £147.00 and nearly decimated Mum's crafty stash fund. She's not a popular girl at the minute but like yourself, her big brown eyes just let her away with lots of things.
So she sends her best woofs and hope you will soon be able to give Dad back his T shirt.

Lorraine said...

Oh Buddy your a laugh, hope your itch improves. Our dog Molly says she feels sorry for you having to go to the vet as she hates it.

Lavender Rose said...

Oh Buddy you don't look too hsppy to be wearing that T shirt but it's for your own good, so no mmore scratching please! My Honey says to tell you it has to be better than wearing one of those lampshade collars designed for doggies who aren't allowed to lick poorly paws.

weewiccababe said...

oh poor Buddy - hey it could've been worse, mum could've decorated that t-shirt with snowflakes and glamour dust lol
Dunno about you, but I think I'll miss your mum while she's away

Ribbon Girl said...

Poor Buddy - I bet your Mum would give up her whole crafty stash rather than see you with a poorly back but it's so hard not to scratch isn't it? We all have those little bits of paper from the sticky pads on the bottoms of our socks, on our feet in our shoes - they get everywhere - no wonder our poor Dysons feel under the weather from time to time - mine has just gone out of it's 5year warranty and I decided not to renew - will have to cross my fingers .............. Mary

Lee said...

Oh no Buddy you poor baby.You stop that scratching now ya hear.You get better soon gorgeous Big Furry Boy.Hello Kath,sorry about your crafty stash purse being some what lighter lol,but he IS SOOOO WORTH IT.Huggles and Cuddles.xxxx

Kat said...

Poor Buddy, you have been in the wars!! Think you'd best not go to the vet again soon. Maddy was there twice and then again last week and since she was the last customer there was no-one to pay so we'll probably get a big bill. And then we'll have to get the 2 black boys vaccinated. Oh dear! If you're a good boy you'll probably be better when Mum gets back from her holiday.

Kat xx

Barb said...

Awww, so sorry Buddy is not feeling well. Poor thing! Hope he heals fast!

Mary said...

Buddy, we know how you feel...Our mum catches us running off for a good scratch too....We wanted you to know you look great in your dad's shirt. Don't you hate those sticky foot things? And the glitter, goodness....we are always sparkly! Take care and heal quickly so you can get outside to play! xoxoxo Baxter and Sydney PS: Don't tell our mum we were using her computer!

The Fairy said...

Thats alot of cubbyhole cash too but i know mummy loves you and i think you look rather davishing in your Daddy's t.shirt who's a handsome boy then.I hope your itchyness gets better real soon
much love to you and mummy

Lorraine xx

Jacee said...

Buddy, you're a real darling, and you model that t.shirt with the pazazz I'd only expect from you, if you keep costing your Mum all this cash at the docs she'll have none left to buy her crafty stash, therefore, depriving us of her wonderful creations, so please cut the scratching Buddy, it's no good for any of us!!
Sending you a big hug just the same...
Jacee

Lynda said...

Awwwww Poor Buddy - hope you feeling better soon. And yes I agree Doggies get much better health care than we do but you do deserve it!

Love Lynda xxx

Lin said...

Poor, poor Buddy! I hope that the ointments and steroids have done their work by now and that nasty itch is subsiding. Give Mum a break and try not to scratch!

Lucy and Suky said...

Hi Buddy

I (Suky) had to go to the vet's five times after I trapped my wagger in a door. It's not nice is it?

Love Lucy and Suky. Meiow x x

Cardarian said...

Oh you poor boy! Get well soon and stop that scratching otherwise mom will have to proclaim bankrupcy!
You are such a sweet boy!
Big hugs to you and your mum,
Cardarian

Yvonne F. said...

Awwww poor Buddy, I feel so bad for you too.I hope you feel better soon and get to wear that designershirt.This one looks good on you too.

mckinkle said...

awwwww Buddy, you poor ol' soul!

I do hope all of that magic cream and potion that the lady vet gave your Mum works very soon. After all, it sure cost enough!

I do hope your skin heals real quick then you wont be hassled by the scratching anymore.

Big cuddles to Buddy!
Keryn x

Rufus said...

Buddy, hope that the magic cream is doing it's job and that your itch is going away. I know it's awfully hard not to scratch! You need to tell Mum that she needs to jazz that shirt up a bit more in keeping with your beautifulness! Sure hope that you feel better soon, so Mum can quit worrying about you.
Sending a hug,
R/

paula said...

Buddy I hope that you are feeling a lot better soon. Itches can be so annoying can't they.

Tell your mum that she is lucky that she has you I had a three legged, one eyed cat, (he passed on just recently) that we estimated cost us around $5000 (or more)in vet bills so yours don't seem that expensive really xoxoxoxo

Sandra said...

oh dear Buddy - I hope you are on the mends really soon!
Sandra

SannaS said...

oh Buddy, hope your itch goes away soon and you'll feel better. =)
Many many hugs to you...

Ciara said...

Awww, what a brave boy you are Buddy! No one can resist a good scratch can they? I bet your mum is the same of she has one of those pesky insect bites.

You'd better behave yourself from now on though as your mum needs all the spending money for her NYC trip!!

Waggles & kisses from Ellie the Schnauzer

Stampersue said...

Hey Buddy you've just got to stop scratching - Mum will have no spending money left if you don't.

I think the tshirt is an inspired idea. I have a cat with a patch of ezema on his back that he chews until its so sore - I'm off to matalan to get a baby teeshirt to fit him.

Hope the budster is on the mend and I love the tshirt and the foam pad ensemble. You'll need to bring him home one of those tshirts that say "My owner went to NY and all I got was this tshirt ......." Have fun.
