Greetings from Convalescent Ward G

Scout would like all her well wishers to know that she's on the mend. She's filling her hours with sleeping, eating a lot of hospital food, watching re-runs of Inspector Rex , chewing open Get Well Soon card envelopes, and making her bandages as dirty and stinky as possible (a dog has her image to maintain you know).
She would also like you all to know that her humans -after the Discharge night of sleeping "let's all pretend we're in Japan"! style on the floor - will also be on the mend after a few intensive chiropractic sessions.

PS: Edited to add - Scout also humbly apologises for the quality of the grainy night-time photography. It's just so hard to get good help these days.

Did I miss a post? What happened to Scout? Poor little pet - it's hard seeing your beloved pet in pain. I know about the sleeping on the floor with a sick dog bit - in my case it was sitting against the wall as the poor old thing couldn't lie down. Pretty distressing. I hope scout recovers soon.

Ultra raglan looks great - I love the colour too. I'm tempted to rush out and knit it myself (I really mean, add it to the pile of UFOs around me!)

Glad to hear Scout's surgery went well and that she is on the mend. There is nothing quite so heart wrenching as a sick animal.

I'm sending lots of get well vibes your way!

Scritchies for Scout. Massages for the humans. Hope it's all up from here. Off the floor.

Awww, Scoutie--snorgs & kisses! Feel better soon! Make your people boil you up some ground chicken and white rice--Bailey's favorite convalescent treat.

Wot's up with Scout?

I don't suppose you ever considered moving the dog to the bed?

Might help the back.

But you are good people for sleeping with the dog. Any sensible person knows they get better faster that way.

Nice sad dog pic, and I cracked up with the "let's all pretend we're in Japan!" Like the dog was a kid saying "I know! Let's play 'how many cookies can I eat'!"

And you're right, the knitting doesn't look so very awful in the picture I took, but it was a bit disturbing in the harder-to-photograph bits, and it's just always cool to learn a new trick. I love the math-y, engineering, how-does-it-work bits of knitting and making.

I hope you weren't on the floor in the Ultra Raglan - you'll make it pill faster :)

And speedy recovery vibes for Scout.

Poor Scout. Perhaps the pills from the ultra raglan will get her on the mend quicker:) ?

oh, Scout, you do "feeble" so well! I want to crawl down on the floor with you and snuggle your back like a spoon 'til your tail wags...Get well v.soon so you can return to your vim-and-vigourous self! And for the love of Pete, Carson and Goat - what are you doing off the floor long enough to be at the computer??? Get back down there and heal that puppy! :)

Call me a crazy dog but I like Inspector Rex and sleeping on the floor! Still, better to be running around and rolling in grass and other disgusting things. Much, much better. Hope you all are better soon:)

Aww, Scout, glad ta hear you're on the mend, little one.

And Carson, there's a special place reserved in nirvana for you.

Scritches to one and all.
