Cone Bad, but Rudy Good

Posted by GerrysMom in Uncategorized    

Well, the cone of shame endures.  Mom is pretty sure that my new hole (from takin’ out the histi-  histioss – sigh – the little tumor that wasn’t nothin’!) and its stitches are out of my reach, but she doesn’t want to take any chances.  Plus she’s not sure my amputation incision is quite finished either.  But if I have to wear the cone til my new stitches come out – there’s more than a week left!  Ughhhhhh!!!  Mom is trying to give me more breaks from the cone and then I lick everywhere that she’ll let me!  It feels sooooo gooooood.

But at least I have Rudy!

Gerry and Rudolph

She’s my reindeer.  I got her for Christmas.  And guess what?  She’s a bipawd!  Or a Bihoofd, I guess.  She is my furry, squishy reindeer, descended from the great Rudolph himself. 

I take good care of her.  I walk her frequently.  I can even pick her up with my cone on.  Mom thinks that’s funny for some reason and wanted to share it in a video, but she can never get it turned on fast enough to get me picking her up.  Still, she made a movie about me and Rudy going for walks together.  It’s alot like my last movie, except now I have a co-star!


  1. That video is GREAT, but please Mom – can’t you Plleeaase open up the door and let me and Rudy outside already!?!?!?

    Is Gerry ever getting around well! I bet he will miss the cone – it must make it easier to carry Rudy.

    You have a wonderful puppy dog!

  2. You go Gerry!! Tell your mom you need to go to an off leash area (when everything is healed up finally) so you don’t have to tow that anchor behind you!!

  3. Gerry sure can run fast! Isn’t it great when they can get around like that. Are you finding that a rear leg ampuation is easier? Not the recovery from surgery but life afterwards?

    Rudy and Gerry sure look like good friends!

  4. I love how he takes that reindeer everywhere! He’s moving great! He will never miss that leg. Not one minute. …but you better get a backup supply of those 2-legged reindeers!
