Trooper, this is my dog on drugs

Trooper looks like this today all messed up on drugs. You can see one of the four places they shaved him for surgery. The Vet removed 4 "fatty" tumors. I'm hoping that the t-shirt will keep him from licking or scratching those areas: right hip, left shoulder and the base of his neck where his chest starts. He will be on antibiotics & pain meds.


This other photo is how he normally looks when he's not doing drugs. He's a sweet boy, so low maintenance. Not like Willow the Great Dane who is a bitchy bitch. But just because he's a sweet boy don't think he's a pushover when guarding the house. That's when he's a storm trooper. So tonight he's off duty & Kanga will have the guard duty.

Vet bill $305.00, healthy dog priceless!

Yeah, but imagine life without dogs. I get more laughs per day from my dog than I do from all other sources combined.

Is he an Obama supporter as well? (cf. sign on the window)

Yay! I'm glad they weren't anything more serious, and the t-shirt is awesome. Even on drugs he looks sweet.

hopefully the Tshirt will do the trick. It should. If it doesn't, ask the vet if you can spray a little "bitter apple" on it. Bitter Apple is available at most pet stores, and a dog will only lick it ONCE, and if he does, have a camera ready, because THAT FACE is priceless!

Thanks everybody! I seriously thought about giving the Great Dane the pain pills tonight just to shut her up. Gah! She's such a bitchy bitch. Why can't they make dog pain pills that taste like cat shit. Just had a hell of a time getting the pills down Trooper. And yes I do believe Trooper is an Obama supporter.

re Willow being a "bitchy bitch".

she's not by any chance a lawyer?

i'm jes' sayin'...

What a great dog! But I DO hope that isn't your house he is guarding in the 2nd photo, as it seems somebody done stole the windows right out it.

Spyder said...

LOL! No that's the dog condo. We had to cut another door as Willow would lay in the door & block Trooper. We would come home & he would be all wet after a rain.

best 300 you ever spent. he looks a tad embarrassed over the shirt.

Spyder said...

I don't think Willow is a lawyer but definitely a Diva!

I think it's more the drugs that gave Trooper that hang dog look than the T-shirt. Besides it's an Aussie Rules Football t-shirt.
