Ted's Big Butt Makover (very graphic - be warned)

My butt BEFORE (on the day I arrived at NEBCR back in April - and auntie Barb said this photo was taken after the first surgery, my butt was much grosser before that if you can believe it!)
And this is my butt AFTER (as in today)
Yup, itz rightz. I am a proud ownerz of the MiracleButt™. Do I get some dandy butt award for this? Me thinkz I should. I tried to get a dead fish snack award when went to a place called thebeach today, but foster mom didn't let me have it. Bummer. Herez me on the place thebeach where I didnt get to eat dead fish and where I had to watch everyone have fun while I waz stuckz on a leash. At least I got to pee on the leash, hehe.
Laterz! Ted

Desi has fur!!

Sorry it has taken Mom so long to blog about me,
but I am still being the best house guest ever.
I am very quiet in the house,
and I only chase the cats when they walk by me.
I just can't help myself.

I am still getting my baths, BOOOOO!
But I only have to suffer through them once a week now, YIPPEE!

And I let my foster Mom brush my fur.
Yeah, I said FUR!
I am no longer bald anywhere on my cute little body.

Here is a video of foster Mom brushing me.
This was a first for me; I didn’t run away and hide.

Look, I have fur all over now!

This is what I looked like just 6 weeks ago

I am also learning to run just like the other dogs in my foster home!

I had friends come over to my house the other day.
I was trying to be really brave but that is still really hard for me.

I did venture off my porch and walk around with the other dogs.
I watched the humans but I wasn’t ready to go say Hi yet.

Here are some photos of my play date.
Do you recognize my new friends?

Here I am just being me.
I love big fluffy beds they beat crates any day.

Once I get the all clear from the vet
I will be looking for my very own home,
so stayed tuned………

Ted's (Very) Busy Day

Oh hi! Itz me, NaughtyDogTed! Since I last seed you, I have been suspended from the boarding school kalled thehospital.

Oh wellz, at least the hole on my butt iz healing well - thankz to the work of dr.Michelle Gorbutt, dr.Joanne Ziemba and dr.Heather Blake at Greylock Animal Hospital. My foster mom sayz they went above and beyond to make me happy and healthy. I am also missing my other friendz at the hospital, especially my aunties Denise and Brittney. Thank youz for being so nice to me while I waz not feeling my best and was getting into mischief!

Here iz my buttz, looking goodz, don't you think?
Anyhow, todayz waz a buzy day here. My foster momz said she waz going to teach me to be apet. I don't knowz what apet meanz, but I went with it. First, she said, all petz have to have some badhabitz. So she taught me to lick her breakfast bowl clean. I liked learning badhabitz!

Then we did something called goforawalk. That waz good because I could sniffz and pee on everythingz. I liked that. When we got home, I made my foster mom proud by figuring out what the thingz called dogbedz are for. Finally, we worked on something called playing. It was little confuzing at first, but I think I made some... whatdotheycallit... progress.

First, I learned that eating sometimez countz as playing
Then I learned that rolling on my back and hugging these fuzzy thingz makez my foster mom giggle
I collected and tazted lotz of thetoyz
But the real reazon I got an A+ iz because I partizipated in something called gentle tugging (my foster mom said I cannot do real tugging until my butt is all healed - bummer).
Ugh, I am feelingz little tired, itz time to go and snooze on the thing called thedogbed.

Luv, NaughtyDogTed
