Walking in My New Sling

Look what Mommy made for me! It's a sling! That way I can practice walking without having somebody crawling around on the floor behind me holding up my butt. This is much more elegant. You probably can't tell, but my sling is made of very soft flannel that has little blue sheeps on it.

You can hear a lot of Mommy laughing in the background. This is because while I was in the middle of sniffing around, all of a sudden she had the urge to start singing: "High on a hill lived a lonely goad herd; lady-odle-lady-odle-lay-hee-hoo!!!" When she told Daddy this, he said, "huh?" She said, "You're not laughing because you don't know why it's funny. My sister would think it was funny." If you're not sure why it's funny either, I highly recommend that you rent "The Sound of Music."

Here is another video of me on my way out to breakfast this morning.

We went for bagels and we had just barely finished eating when it started raining again. When will it be spring???!!!

Bye for now!

Hi, Poppy!
It makes me so happy to see you there walking. Now you need the help of your new sling but sure you will do it by yourself pretty soon!
The pee video is very funny!
Kisses and hugs

Poppy! You are doing great in your little sling! And I can see your feets moving, so you are making great progress. Hooray for you!

Riley & Tiki said...

Poppy! We think the goatherd thing is funny too! We're surprised the vet didn't give you a sling. Maybe becuase you are little? At the vet hospital, Mom used to see big dogs that had just had hip dysplasia surgery using slings when they were able to leave. We never saw one hop around the way you do though. You are getting better and better all the time. Hooray!!!!

Petra said...

There is nothing like a sister who understands and can laugh with another sister!!! (And Motch thought it was funny, too, by the way.)

The sling your mom made is great. You look so cute walking around in it!

Tofu Burger said...

Hi Poppy! We've been eagerly following your progress and my mama got teary eyed when she saw your little tail wagging in the sling!! Yahahha for Poppy!


Tadpole said...

Oh holy CRAP that is the cutest/funniest/aww-inducing video I have EVER EVER seen! I'm still giggling. In a very manly way, of course.

You look GREAT, by the way! I mean, you always look great, but you look SUPER EXCITED to be walking (in your own special way)!

Rowan The Dog said...

O Poppy! Poor darling little dog... I haven't been keeping up with you very well. I am so sorry that you've been having troubles. You've really been through it! I know your guardians are helping you and that you are doing your best to be brave. I am happy that you are going to make a full recovery. Just wish I'd been here sooner to woof some encouragement to you. You inspire me, you little blond Chihuahua you. Keep up the good work, and I'll be over to check on you more often.



Bionic Aimee said...

Hi little dog. My friends Lindy & Rowan told me about your back surgery. We're so sorry. My human and I have BOTH had back surgery (my human's had three so far and it looks like she need at least one more). You are lucky to have nice humans taking care of you.

We hope you make a full and happy recovery!

wally said...

Whoa! That thing is pretty awesome and you're lookin' good; it's great to see you so mobile. I asked my ma ape if I could have one of those but she said I was just being lazy and also she would break her back even holding up half of me. Whatevs.


The Cat Realm said...

That is great! Our friend Zed the dog couldn't walk, and he had a wheelchair!
I believe your friend Clover the cat entered the Halloween contest last year and dressed up with REAL clothes?
We are having a red carpet contest right now and so far all entries are image edited! So here is a big chance for real dressers!!!!
