Bodie Is Holding His Own

Guest Bodie

Recommended Posts

It was so busy this weekend, with my daughter headed back to college, that I'm afraid Bodie was left somewhat to his own devices, but he managed to hold his own. He does seem a bit depressed, which has me concerned. He no longer comes over for treats or dinner unless I call him and make him come. He is becoming scared of the food bowl, because something hurts when he eats, although I am convinced the problem is not in his throat as he will eat out of my hand without any problems. I think the act of stretching and gulping is irritating and pulling the stitches. The stitches are to come out tomorrow, hopefully. Most of the seeping has dried up except for the area he opened when he was at the vet's on Friday. It turned out, when he injured himself, he re-opened where the drain had been and now it's draining again. But all the other areas that were draining have stopped. His skin cultures should come back on Tuesday and that will tell us whether he can go to OSU and begin chemo.


With the busy weekend, we didn't have much time for pictures. I decided I didn't want to put him through the difficulty of changing shirts just to take pictures. So we only have pictures of one outfit - his t-shirt with suspenders and a tie. These were taken while he was having a sunbath on Saturday - in close to 100 degrees! Hopefully, we will have time to take more pictures when he is wearing his rugby shirt.


Wish us luck that the stitches can come out tomorrow - they must feel awful by now as he has had the staples in for close to 3 weeks!

Bodie took my breath away. He is stunning. Here is hoping all goes well for him so he can start his chemo.

oh just look at that precious boy :wub:


maybe ask the vet if there is something to rub into his wound once the stitches come out to help it be a bit more elastic...

I hope getting rid of the stitches makes eating more comfortable for Bodie. He's a handsome guy.
