No More Radio Telescope for Me!

On Wednesday, I went back to the vet and was immediately taken into the back room where my stitches were removed, and I was brought back to my Mom, who immediately removed my radio telescope cone!  No more stitches and no more cone for me!!!   Here I am, moments after my cone was removed - yes, I was a very happy camper!

Yay!  Thank you Mom!  Now go burn that thing!
The vet looked me over and declared everything to be 'looking good' and I was free to get back to my regularly scheduled life!  Yay!  I have finished my antibiotics from the surgery, so in a few more days they will check my pee again, and hopefully it will be bacteria free, and I can enjoy a healthy, UTI-free life!  I'll keep you posted on that!

Once the vet gave me the okay for tennis ball action, I was back at it in a flash!

Throw the tennis ball, already!!!  I've been waiting two weeks for this!
Happy tennis ball dance!
Oh yeah!  Just as good as I remember it!

Yup, the brakes still work!
Big stretch!
This is my zombie mode!

My legs haven't lost anything during my two week hiatus!
I really missed all this excitement!
Of course, Abby got in plenty of tennis ball action, too!

And there were many tennis ball zoomies!

I'm going so fast I'm almost a blur!

Throw it again, Mom!

Much ear flappage from Fluffica!
I think Abby has more fun when I'm out with her!
Zoom zoom!
I can rock the ear flappage, too!
Nothing like your ears blowing in the wind!
Yep, I can't get enough of this!
Abby definitely has more fun with me out there!  I think....

It doesn't get better than this!

She may be goofy-looking, but she was the best sister while I was under the weather; she didn't get in my face and she didn't taunt me about my silly cone!    She even gave me all the space I needed on the bed!  I couldn't ask for a better sister!

If you had any doubt about how thrilled I am to be back to normal, this should dispel them!

Yep, I'm a happy, happy girl again!
Thanks for all the kind wishes during my recovery - I am certain they helped me get my okay for tennis ball action as fast as it did!  Now I just have to remind Mom that she missed my birthday (it was July 10th) and I believe a trip to the Magic Cheeseburger Window is in order!

Have a great week!
