Gerry Days

Posted by GerrysMom in Uncategorized    

Hey all,

Yesterday my adoption was made official.  It was exactly one month since my amputation too.  Mom can’t believe the couch has been turned around for only one month.  And neither can I!  But we get it back tomorrow!  Today is Couch Day Eve and we’re very excited.

I’m trying to convince Mom that every year we need to celebrate my official adoption day, my unofficial adoption day, Couch Day and Couch Day Eve, my ampuversary, the day she brought me home from the shelter, and we need to pick a birthday for me, since we don’t know when it is!  She wants me to pick just one or two of those holidays.  Humpf!

Oh, and a couple days ago, I got my very own collar and I.D. tag.  No more hand-me-downs from the shelter or from Yoda!

I think Mom made a good choice with the yellow and gold.  I want people to NOTICE me and pet me.

And then tomorrow I get my sutures out and probably get to go to the dog park after.  Whoohoo!  I love it when Mom gets extra day weekends.  Though I’m not sure how I feel about all the car ride practice she wants to do.  Ugh.

Well, I must be off.  It’s Walk Time!


Oh, and Yoda fans, be sure to check out my last blog entry, if you missed it.

Rock on, tripawds!


  1. Gerry,
    I would pet you no matter what color your collar! You are a cutie. I don’t know why your Mom won’t celebrate all of those holidays, Keep working on her.

  5. Oh boy. I’m confused about the couches. When/why did they couch day start?
    I LOVE the yellow collar. It’s so bold! A perfect combination for his fur tones. Aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Great job, and well done!

  6. Gerry’s Mom here –
    To explain Couch Day, to anyone who was lost on that, heh heh, Gerry hasn’t been allowed on the couch since his amputation. The only way to really enforce that was to make it physically impossible for anyone to get on it, so it now faces the wall and has chairs laid over it. (Due to Gerry’s claustrophobia and cleverness, I couldn’t simply crate him or gate him in a furnitureless room). However, his restriction from the couch was prolonged first by the fact that he managed to lick around his original e-collar so that a small segment of his incision didn’t finish closing, and then AGAIN after he had to have that little tumor that popped up on his shoulder removed (benign – yay!). Uh oh, speaking of that, that’s going to be another day Gerry’s going to want to celebrate now that I’ve mentioned it: the day we got confirmation that he was cancer free! Ohhh boy.
    So anyway, since he will (knock wood) finally be completely suture free tomorrow afternoon, the couch is going to be accesible to all again – hooray!
