Well, it’s the big day. This morning we’re shipping the Doodlebug off to the vet’s office for a sleepover. But not a fun sleepover — this one involves two heavy injections into his deep lumbar muscle tissue — hardly your average dog’s idea of a good time.
But we keep telling him: six weeks from now — assuming all goes well — the Dude will be heartworm and trouble free. We’re already planning his adventures. We’ve been talking them up so much, in fact, that he’s been getting pumped up for his vet stay and heartworm treatment.
Giant needles in my spine? Game on! Bring it on, heartworms. I’m gonna destroy you! High five!
Good luck Doodlebug! Hope all goes well.
awesome … great 🙂
Good luck Bug! Were thinking of you!
I’ve been thinking about Snickerdoodle and how he’s doing. After reading your post about his diagnosis and treatment, I’ve become even more vigilant about Georgia’s monthly heartworm prevention. Good luck boy! Big hugs to everyone x
Snickerdoodle looks so healthy…..let’s hope all goes well getting his interior as healthy as his exterior. I’ll be thinking about him and praying for his complete recovery. Die, heartworms, die!! Good luck, buddy!!
Good luck Snickerdoodle! Destroy those worms and in 6 weeks you’ll be running and playing with chick!
we love you Doodlebug!!!
the pictures you take make me cry happy tears… THIS is what animals are for – love, companionship and shared joy. what compels certain others to think otherwise, I’ll never know. virtual hugs, kisses and cuddles to Doodlebug who steals my heart every time 🙂
Keeping paws crossed!
Affirmations. How did we get along without ’em?
I will keep Dude (and all of you) in my thoughts over the next few days. He will pull through with flying colors I’m sure! Get lost heart worms!
Doodlebug you just warm my heart!! My thoughts and prayers are with you – you sweet pup!
Good luck Doodlebug!
Good luck Doodlebug! Kick wormy butt!
Aw, Dude, your so strong! Hang in there buddy… home free soon enough.
Good luck, Doodles!
Weird coincidence – see my blog!
I hope all goes well for Doodlebug!
It’s a good thing he doesn’t REALLY know what deep lumbar injections are, or he’d hide under the bed! Poor baby, my thought are with him!
Best wishes and prayers for you. Hope your big brother doesn’t miss you too much.
Wishing the Dude all things good – rest, speedy recovery and quick return to his Chick!
I know all will go well. I’ll be thinking of the little Dude.
Good luck Doodle!
