a long day at mossy shed...


today Used Dog is in hospital for an operation.


we have told her to be brave


we have told her "we love you Used Dog"


and now all we can do is keep our fingers and paws crossed
(a little tricky for a little critter with limbs on the short side)


and wait patiently for Used Dog to come back home to mossy shed so we can feel whole again

Awwwww, what a sweet post! Good luck to your sweet doggy! I was up all night with mine...he just came home from the vet. Now I get to cook chicken and rice and hope he'll start eating again soon. It's awful when our babies are "out of sorts". If only they had words and could talk to us! Look forward to a future post to tell us all is well! Annette

Oh my, everything is crossed for used dog. Might I just say that my other half (at my request) bought me your book for my birthday. It is most wonderful and I am very sad to have reached the end. However, it is still next to my bed in my newly decorated bedroom (yours was the first book read in there) and I know I shall re-read. Thank you for the immense enjoyment.

Hope Used Dog is back home very soon. Sounds like she could use a soft and worn vintage blanket for comfort! The old ones are softer and have much more charm!

I know exactly that 'long day feeling'.
I hope Used Dog is back with you all soon, fit and well!

Hello Sweet Girl,

Hope your big dog will be A O K very soon. As I type to you I have a 60# English bulldog (Pearl) napping, snoring, on my lap with our little Pug (Monkee) napping away on top of her. Makes for slow ackward typing. Hugs to you and your furry babies.

Katrina said...

Oh Used Dog, a little prayer for a good outcome. We're rooting for you. Nico and Pippin, 2 used dogs.

Debby said...

I'm praying for you Used Dog.....hope you are okay.

dottie angel said...

i am happy to say, as of this evening, Used Dog made it through her op! she is still tres unwell and will take a few weeks to mend, she is back home for the night and will be back in hospital tomorrow as a 'day patient'.
and then we play a game of wait and see, to know the outcome of the tests. we have high hopes here in mossy shed. please continue to keep all fingers and paws crossed in the coming weeks, i know this can be tres tricky whilst doing every day things, but Used Dog really truly appreciates you doing so, and so do i and little olive too :)
thank you kindly x

Aimee B said...

We are crossing our fingers and paws, too! Hope all is well!

Lots of love and prayers for Used Dog. You were a godsend allowing me to constantly lurk while my babe was sick....she came close to passing away but pulled through. I do think it was stopping to be with her and reading your blog and flicker over and over to keep her calm. So for you, all the dog love in the world. Olive...hang in there little one she will come back home. Tif eat choco it is calming for nerves. xoxo Helena

Hellie said...

Oh my word, I have just found your blog and I gasped with excitement... is that a dachshund? I have never seen one like that. I have two mini longs, a black&tan and a red, and normally if I see another dachshund on the street (rare enough in these parts) I have to stop and say hello, so this is me stopping on the street and saying Hello!! (Part of me is wondering if it's a wee shorthaired dachshund crossed with a jack russell?)

I hope Used Dog gets better soon and I'm sure she will enjoy all the much needed lovely attention and strokes and company. My friends doggie had knee surgery a few months ago and they took turns to sleep on the couch during the night to keep her company (as she wasn't allowed to go upstairs on her recovering knee) so lying next to her is most definitely perfectly sane.

So glad I found your blog, it is beautiful. Can't wait to read more (just need a few more hours in the day!).

Lots of love to Used Dog and Little Olive, and not forgetting you!

Helen xx

I so much hope the used dog recovers very soon, our pets are part of our family and makes are life much greater and amazing. I hope he or she gets better soon and start playing around with the little one again. By the way did you get the knob? I have sent a few parcels to the States and Canada and they seems to be getting for ever, please let me know. Tif you got such a good taste I admire your sense of style and the huge amount of creativity you hold in your body.

yes little olive is dachshund, she is called a pie bald and until i came to the states i had never seen so many different coloured daxies!
she is quite pesky, i would put her at medium peskiness now she is over 2 as apposed to tres peskiness when she was younger :)

yes yes! it turned up safely two days ago, it looks the bees knees, i'll be in touch soon and many thanks :)
