Christmastime Bellyache

Tripawd Wyatt Ray recovers from gastromy surgery to remove a stomach obstruction caused by eating a towel.

I have so many adventures to tell you about. But right now I don’t feel so good.

High as a kite on Fentanyl

See, last week I chomped on a towel for fun. Which I do all the time when my people aren’t around! But this time the towel I ate made me feel terrible. Guess I picked the wrong kind. Anyhow, next thing I knew I woke up in a cage with a shaved belly and a big long scar down my gut. And man it hurt!

Wyatt recovers from gastromy surgery.

The clinic people were great but I wanted out. Yesterday the vet called my people and said I could come home. I’m glad. It’s way easier to sleep on my couch than in a cage with a bunch of unregulated dogs all around.

Mmmm Fentanyl dreams.

I like being in my own crib. But eating just doesn’t feel so great right now. After all, my stomach got sliced open like a stuffed turkey. Ouch. My people keep trying to feed me cause I haven’t eaten any real food for almost a week. Today I finally ate a little bit. They put that Honest Kitchen stuff in my bowl and hand fed me! Yep, king of my castle I am.

Wyatt recovers with hand feeding and Honest Kitchen.

Now I can’t do anything or have fun for at least two weeks. This sucks. No more towels for me, no way no how.

It’s gonna be a mellow Christmas with me at home getting over this surgery. I hope you have more fun than me!

  1. Wyatt Ray, you are one lucky boy. I hope you heal quickly, but remember that is a BIG surgery and you need to take it slow for a while while your guts heal. And, for the love of Pete, STOP IT!

  2. Wyatt, I’m so sorry!! But I think Bernie has tried to tell you many times, don’t eat towels; stick with expensive digital cameras! You don’t need surgery when you eat those. Instead, you get to eat a lot of great foot and run and play, and then just poop all the little pieces out! Well, try to remember that for next time. In the meantime, I hope you feel better real soon, buddy!! 🙂

  3. Feel better soon Wyatt. I agree no more towels although not so sure I agree with Bernie either LOL. Get feeling better .

  5. Honest Kitchen good. (very good.)
    Towels bad. (very bad.)
    Having a story to tell good. (depending…on the story.)
    Worrying yer Mama and Dad BAD (very not good.)

    Sending you healing thoughts from Okey Dokey Smokey Ray and Abby Dabby Doo (who used to eat towel parts but not anymore.)
    and smooches from Liz.

  6. WYATT!!!! WYATT RAY!! You are craaaaazy! And I mean that in a complimentary way….I think!

    I I know you don’t get the connection that eating towels equals major surgery and I’m not sure you ever will! But if you’re going to eat something, you’re better off making sure it has four legs, or at least wings!

    As far as being surrounded by unregulated dogs…that’s horrible!! The vet should have given you lrivate quarters away from the ill-behaved and unruly!!

    We are all so glad you are feeling better! That’s a great gift for everyone!! And YAY for Honest Kitchen!

    Lots of love!

    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle too!
