Elvis got the okay for a dustbath!!!

FINALLY!!!

I just talked to his doctor ... she removed the sutures last night and put a surgical sealant over the areas so he wouldn't mess with them, but they had healed wonderfully!! I called and asked for an ETA on a dustbath and she said to go ahead! The surgery site is healed and he doesn't have any more open areas so she said she didn't see why not!

He is going to LOVE his Doc now! Every time we let him down, he'll find a corner with a bit of natural dust in it. He'll dig and rub his face in the carpet, trying to get all that he can! It's so sad to see him do it!!! Now I get to watch him get his first bath in over a month! Wahoo!!

The funny vision you see in your mind is me doing a hobbling happy dance with my cane!

I'm so glad he has come through his long ordeal. Please whisper to him that I understand all the pain.

I just took a shower and it has wiped me out - so look for a tired chin when he gets through bathing!!

*bursting out laughing* Aww, Critter!!

I'll definitely tell him you sympathize, and I'll be sure to get pics tonight as well.

Awww....

Now, see... everyone should be allowed to roll around in dirt now and then. It's too much fun!

cute mental images abound on this post. Glad to hear Elvis finally gets to take a dust bath. It is also good to hear that Critter finally got to take a shower. I took a water bath this morning and relished it. Before long I will have difficult getting in and out, but hopefully I won't have to give them up. I am being very careful concerning the water temp.

OMG!!

LOL! That was fantastic!! He had a blast. And then we let him out to run around the living room/dining room ... he was jumping off the walls and furniture again!!!

Okay, here's some pics!!


This first one is after a good roll in the bath. He was more than happy to get in there!
