Elvis is Home



He's not moving too good just yet, but he is recovering. The doctor says it will be a few months before he's walking normally. Right now he's resting most of the time. He loves being on his pillow by me in the computer room. With his squeaky toy, of course.

While Elvis is recovering, Bettina has been dog-sitting for Dusty. Her standard poodle, Montana, LOVES having Dusty there. They have the same temperament and play continuously. Bettina took some pictures of them out in the snow wrestling one day. It looks like they're killing each other - but they're not. That's just how they play.



I'll be glad when Elvis can get out there and play with them too. Time will tell.

Elvis left the building - yee haw! That is great news. You must be so relieved, Sally. And you're lucky that Dusty has a playmate; our Nunuk can't get along with most dogs (long story).
And oh, I'm considering the cookies for ribbon trade. Very busy at the moment but it's on the brain, m'dear. Have a good one!

LOL - Oh Mari! I did declare "Elvis has left the building" when we left the hospital. But no one "got it". I am relieved and he's getting better every day. Dusty is a pack dog and gets along with every dog he sees. Please, please, please! Can I have some cookies???

Great to see that you got him home. Bettina's awesome for taking care of Dusty while Elvis recoups...looks like he is defintely enjoying himself there. Tell Elvis to take it easy and get better fast, and I hope to see him soon!

Sally said...

Ahhh..thanks Glenda! He gets a little bit better every day. And I could not have done this without Bettina's help. Good pictures, aren't they?

Give Elvis a hug from me - I hope he's feeling better. I loved the photos of Dusty and Montana - they look like they have fun together!! That is exactly how my two pooches play!

Sally said...

Thanks Kris - will do! Bettina says they get along so well because they have the same mentality: all play - all day! LOL

I hope that Elvis gets stronger everyday. We had a dog with the same surgery years ago~ it was so tough.
I'll say a prayer for Elvis!
