Say a Little Prayer

a new hairdo

Yeah, I’m going for a ride. But it ain’t gonna be pretty. I’m off to the doGtor.

You might remember that I told y’all a few weeks ago about my dental procedure. Actually, it’s only a cleaning. But while I’m on the table, my doGtor is going to remove a bunch of little bumps from my eyelids. I’ve got these little things on both eyes. We don’t think they’re serious, but they’ll be removed just to make sure.

And I’m not pleased about it. Not one little bit. I’m no spring chicken. And I don’t like pain. Of any kind. And I think it’s going to hurt.

By the time it’s over, my whole mouth is gonna hurt and both of my eyes are going to be sore and have stitches in them.

I just can’t talk about it anymore. So, if you wouldn’t mind, would you please cross your paws for me today?

And please cross your paws for my peepstress. She’s gone off the deep end because She thinks doGtor Elliott is going to shave my beautiful eyebrows.

Now, between us pals, I don’t think that’s going to happen. Because I’ve had a little chat with doGtor Elliott myself and said, “Hey, please don’t take my royal good looks away from me. It’s bad enough I don’t have a fine groomer anymore, but if I were to lose my eyebrows, I think I’d just curl up and stay in the house forever.” So, doGtor Elliott said, “Stuart, I have to remove just enough of the hair on your eyes to put a stitch in when I remove the little bumps because I can’t stitch over hair. It’s not sanitary. Understand?”

I said, “uh…I’m not so sure, but I trust you.”

Oh me. Oh me oh me. My oh my.

  3. Stuart I sure cross my paws for you and I hope your Dr. Elliot will be careful with your eyebrows… my mom accidentally removed a half one of hers and she looked… ummm… well, your dogtor has well trained paws for that, right? Guess what? I have to go to that cleaning-torture too… please tell me how it was , ok?

    Paws are crossed Stuart. You will be fine – you are a strapping healthy guy. It’s best to do this preventative stuff even though it’s icky. Perhaps the peep needs a sedative to get her through the day – I don’t know who it’s harder on when we have things done to us – us or the peeps. Prayers and paws crossed my friend.

  8. Oh pal, I have my paws crossed for you and I am sending some POTP your way.

  9. Stuart, we have you in our hearts today. Best of luck with all of your procedures. We hope you won’t be in much discomfort afterwards…and hey, there might be ice cream for your poor mouth!

    So sorry to hear you’re off to the Dogter and that you need to have a few procedures down. My dog Bilbo went to the vet last week and his approach was first try to escape and after that failed, he lay firmly on his stomach to reduce access points. Quite difficult, therefore, to get the thermometer going.
    I felt quite sorry for Bilbo as he thought he’d won Lotto and was going for a drive in the car to the beach. You can imagine his extreme disappointment. He had his two jabs and they stabbed a needle into a lump but the lab could read the slide so we’re still in the dark.
    Good luck Stuart! xx Rowena, Bilbo and Lady

  11. We will be thinking about you and keep our paws crossed! Take care!

  15. Edgar says:

    Oh Stu!!! That doesn’t sound so good…mum loves my eyebrows too – has the groomer leave them a little long. Says it makes me look distinguished. Heavens! Don’t worry Stuart and peep…you’ll be fine. Stay Scottie Stoic – everything will BE OKAY!!! Okay?

    Edgar and his mum

  16. Oh, poor you, Stuart!!! I have my paws crossed that you will be okay and that your Mom can relax. Just remember, your eyebrows can grow back!!! *ear licks* Noodle

    All 60 fingers n toes crossed for you and POTP to boot! Elsa had the same thing done to her in April. She only had 2 eye bumps removed, same eye while they did her teeth. She had to wear the “cone of silence” for a week. Me n Andy only made fun of her a couple of times. Your royalness comes from within, so even without eyebrows, you will still be king! Good luck and prayers for your Peeps!

  18. Donna says:

    It will be over before you know it. Hang in there. Love and hugs to you and your Peeps!!

  19. Gavin says:

    You and the Peeps are in our thoughts and prayers, Stuart! Dogtor will take such care with you fer sure, and the bits of eyebrow hair WILL come back. We all start lookin’ like the Velveteen Rabbit as we get on in life, butt shows how long lived and well loved we are, RIGHT? Let us know when yer back today, OK?

  20. Kismet says:

    Have the peepstress get you fake eyelashes. They should be made for elephants to be the right size-your vet should carry them.

  21. Kaci says:

    Best of luck and don’t forget to pupdate us about it when you get back from the quack.

  22. we have our paws crossed for you Stuart

  23. bentley2 says:

    POTP, Good Luck Stuart that everything will be just perfect for you.

  24. Oh Stuart! I’ve got my paws crossed real tight for you dude! I don’t thinks any Dogtor could take your good looks…eyebrows or no eyebrows! If you want to look a little ‘punk’, I could gives your mine…a little tan brows could be the Next BIG Thing! hehehe

  25. Lee says:

    Oh Stuart it is always dark before the dawn but dang if they take your brows it might be light more of the time. Of course I am saying a prayer for you.
    Thanks for being a friend
    Sweet William The Scot

  26. gentlestitches says:

    I totally understand dearStuart.
    Trust me, you feel like a new man when the nasties are gone , particularly from your mouth. Hugs.

  27. theguster says:

    You will be in out thoughts and prayers all day, Stuart. We vow not to uncross our paws till it’s over. Your dogtor is the best, not to worry. Please be strong for the peepstress, this is going to be very difficult for her, as you know. Show her what you’re made of! Strong like steel, fearless and stoic like William Wallace, another fine Scotsman like you!

  33. Aloha and POTP to you my friend. It will all turn out to be great. You will look back and laugh at this…well, not really…but you’ll be 100% soon!

  34. Laura Marec says:

    Please don’t worry, Stu and your Peeps! Really! Mum says that her previous Angel doggie who crossed the Rainbow Bridge, had the same thing done, and it was hardly noticeable. If it’s the same thing as hers, they are just like little skin tags or little moles on the eyelids that form as we get older. They also removed dem when she had her teeth cleaned! Really it was fine. We are praying everything goes well. God Bless YOU, dear friend!

Go ahead...Bark Out Loud! ArroOOOO!
