Wednesday Woos

Ciara here, reporting that we are finally back.

We had to spend a few days at Camp Kennel while the Momster and Dadster spent some time in California visiting our human brother and family. It wasn't so bad because all the workers at the kennel are crazy about us and give us lots of loving. But we do get very tired as we keep waiting for our ride home to arrive. Today Thunder and Phantom had baths and were really beat after that ordeal. I couldn't get a bath; you'll see why in a bit.

I found Phantom doing a lot of this:

And Thunder totally wiped out doing this:

I, Ciara, am left to share with you what happened to me on my first adventure away from home. I am still not sure it was such a good one.

Look at my leg - what happened to my furs?

And then take a good look at this:

My tummy is naked!!! I really don't remember much about what happened but Mom told me that now I won't be able to have any babies.

As soon as I got home, I retreated to one of the empty crates to contemplate what this might mean. I am still a little confused, but I have a plan.

I gathered up a few of my favorite babies and sat guarding them and singing to them. There is no way I am giving up these babies no matter what the Momster said.

There is a very strange looking gizmo that came home with me. Mom says it is a cone, but it sure doesn't look like the cone the little ones get with their ice cream. Then she said I might have to wear it if I lick my tummy. I think I saw one on Boomer and Lucky - and I don't think they like it too much.

So do you think I should listen to Mom?

So far being good seems to be working - I seem to be scoring lots of treats.

Whew, all this updating of the blog is hard work. Maybe it is time for me to join my brothers in some naptime.

Dear readers, don't believe a word she is saying - she is so milking the Momster. It is enough to make a pup think the threat of a cone isn't such a bad idea. Actually I don't think Mom can resist this face for long:)

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Pee Ess: We are way behind on reading what's been happening with all of you. We are trying to catch up but we may have to do the "mark all as read" thingie. You all were pretty busy while we were away.

I had a feeling you would haves your isides ripped away at your hotel stay. Mum had me done on the exact 6 mom mark...she said no way in heck was she gonna let me bring in more Puddles babies...said no one in their right mind would want 'em if they was anything like me....hehehehe! Soooooooo, I will be furever puppyless just like you. But you seem to have already picked up on your mothering instincts.

I am so glad ya'll is aaaaall back, I missed ya'll so dearly.


Mack said...

I think you are gonna be a great momster to your fluffy babies Ciara! I bet you even get more as time goes by!!
We have missed you guys.
I think Phantom is asking for a belly rub in that pic!

Frankie Furter said...

WOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOO you are all back safe and sound. I have missed WOOOOOO ALL.
Ciara, that thingy they did to you is called a WhoWhoectomy I think. It really is a good thingy. Butt you can have ALL of the Stuffie Babies you want. That is fur real. My Girrrrls had WhoWhoectomies and I was tutored. It is grrrreat. And the bestest pawt for YOU... No more puppy pampers and duck tape for you!!!

Fred said...

Poor Ciara! Those cones are terrible things. Stay away!!! ;P

Samantha said...

SWEET picture with all your babies! You did a great job reporting on the happenings of the pack! Thank you for the update, Ciara. That scar sure looks clean, girl - now you won't ever have to wear those puppy pants again - whoopee for everybuddy over there heheh! Hope you stay good with the cookies - cones are not too fun, except the ice cream kind! Welcome home! Did your pawrents have fun in California?
Big Hugs xoxoxo

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Hi All! We are glad you are back - we are sure you had fun!

And Ciara we are super proud of you for having the no-baby surgery - that is awesome! And don't worry - all your stuffie babies will stay with you, they aren't the kind of babies they mean! Our baby sister Stella will have to have that same surgery soon, but the kitty version - it is something all good animals do!

Nubbin' Tails said...

Oh Ciara, we can completely relate. Hopefully you can be good. We can't. I am a master stitch ripper outter. So I have to be coned. I think it's great that you have gathered all the babies to watch over.

Hope you are back to your fuzzy bellied self soon!


Mr Nubbin' and Crew!

YD, sometimes with ♥Samantha and ♥June said...

Dear Ciara,

We had one of those done to us a long long time ago. Thank dogness it won't happen again. We hope you recover soon. That cone thing is no fun.

Sam & June

Ruby and Penny said...

Ciara, your pack has been busy.
We had our girl bits ripped out of us when we were your age. No babies for us either.
Love Ruby & Penny

tula said...

Whew! you're back. going thru OP pack withdrawals! um ciara, from lookin at your pile, woo already have enough babies. but if woo ever need a baby-sittah give me a howl!

back to zzzzz,

Gus said...

Ciara and pack...

Well, that was some adventure you had! No doubt about it, but probably not something you want to do again, huh?

We know you will be a goog mom to your stuffie babies. And at least you don't have to save for college.


houndstooth said...

It doesn't look like too bad of an adventure to me. I had a surgery like yours, and I don't miss not being able to have puppies one little bit! I mean, Lilac had two litters of puppies and now she's always the fun police.

Mom says if you do have to wear something, you might like the Bite Not Collar better than that cone. Hopefully you won't need one at all!


Sychoberians said...

Whatever you do Ciara, listen to your Mom and do not lick!!! We had to wear ours after the boy version of your .... ahem... procedure and it was the worst thing ever, walking into doors, walls, funiture, people and not being able to lay down comfortably. Yuck.

Please listen to your MOM.

Remy and Flash

BeadedTail said...

We're so glad you're back! We missed you! Ciara, we're glad you are doing well and you are a pawesome momster to all those stuffed babies! Stay cool in the Kansas heat!

Mushing Kodi said...

Hope you feel better soon after your surgery. Definitely milk your mom for more stuffies and treats hee hee :)

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Yuu-Chan and Bibi-Chan said...

Hang on to those babies, Ciara!

And take it from me, Mr. Recently-Conehead, do whatever it takes to avoid having one put on you, although #1 says she has ordered something called a "BiteNot" collar for next time.....


Tank said...

Well, that was kind of a rotten trick somebody played on you. It's only fair you get extra treats... lots and lots of extra treats.

Martine said...

We are glad you are back home and hope your parents had a blast in CA!

Ciara, keep being a good no tummy licken pup!!

xo martine & the kiddlets

Stella said...

You told a good story today, Ciara and your operashun looks very good. I had the same operashun two years ago. If you lick it, you pay!

I am so glad you are all back home because me and My mom missed you all.

You just enjoy your stuffee babies and thats all you will need.


mayziegal said...

Hi everybuddy! I'm glad you had a good time at camp whiles your mom and dad were away. Well, except for your ordeal, Ciara. But take it from me - as somebuddy who has had at least one litter of puppies before I gots rescued - you're WAY better off stayin' outta the baby making biz. I was ever so relieved when I was out of it for good!

Wiggles & Wags,

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Phantom's pikh looks furry familiar to me fur some reason!

Welkhome Bakhk!

Sorry 'bout the 'repairs' that were done during your stay at Khamp Kennel - maybe next time woo should try to book Khamp Khyra!

PeeEssWoo: Tell your momster they 'MAR' button isn't the worst thing in the world - we've had to do it recently - and the earth kept spinning - we weren't sure it would BUT it did!

Honey the Great Dane said...

Hi Ciara,Phantom and Thunder - welcome back! I've missed you guys! Yes, I've been busy - in fact, I've been away myself for my first holiday in Australia with my humans - we went to Byron Bay and not only did I nearly have to face the Scary Upside-Down Food Bowl Monster - but I also nearly got eaten by a shark! (that's after my human tried to make me into a doggie sandcastle...) - whew! It's a miracle I've come back in one piece - ha! ha!

Ciara - I had the Operation like you when I was 6 months! And I DID have to wear that yucky cone collar - but that's because I was a naughty pup and wouldn't stay quiet for the 1 week like my vet told me to - I started running and jumping around - and I burst my stitches! So had to go back to the vet to have them redone and then ANOTHER week's quiet & rest - humph! The cone collar wasn't to stop me licking my tummy (I wasn't doing that anyway) but when I was wearing it, I got so scared of banging into things and getting stuck in doorways (OK, mine was XXXXL size - it was practically a satellite dish!) - that I walked very slowly and carefully everywhere...! :-)

I had to laugh at that picture of you guarding your "babies"! :-) Anyway, I hope your fur grows back soon!

Honey the Great Dane

♥I am Holly♥ said...

Welcome back!! You were really missed! We hope you had a good vacation and it sounds like the pups did too. Love the pictures! Ciara, please don't lick! Holly here....I came home with one of those funny looking cones and I never had to wear it thank goodness! It was crazy looking! Keep your babies close to you and lick on them!! Lots of love, Holly and mom

Toma said...

I felt sorry for Ciara.
She is such a nice dog, she could have very pretty puppies.

Sagira said...

Welcome back! We have missed you. Poor Ciara, you had your big girl surgery. At least you didn't get a tattoo like I did when they did my surgery.

giantspeckledchihuahua said...

Ciara, no more diapers makes the owie and the cone worthwhile!

Huffle Mawson said...

I wondered where you'd been! Glad to hear all is well. Ciara, ask for ham.

Tessa the Maltese said...

Oh Ciara, I think that you should get all the treats you want! The heck with what the boys say. I had my surgery a year ago and I was a good girl and no licking!

Don't worry about your Mom taking away your stuffies, she won't as a matter of fact you will probable get MORE Stuffies!

Hugs, Tessa

The Thundering Herd said...

Was something wrong with you? That you needed "fixing?" Oh well, you can milk it for sympathy for weeks. Just don't get caught running and playing or the humans stop believing you.

P.S. - Nice Reverse Poodle Hair cut on the leg.

Maggie and Mitch said...

It looks like the boys are most happy and content to be back home!
Be an especially good girl, Ciara, and that cone will stay sitting on the floor! You don't want that nasty thing around you neck so listen to your mom, okay?

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

doyle and mollie said...

woof hoo ciara you wee trooper we are so proud of you!! loves & licks

Bijou said...

Yippee! We are glad you are back.

Ciara, my mom got me "fixed" so I can't have babies either. But that's okay cause I have Banjo and he's a BIG baby! BOL.


Flo de Sendai said...

Don't give up, dear Ciara, your babies are cute !
We had the same experience....

Nana and Uyanga from Japan.

Ms. ~K said...

Welcome home!
I'm sure you were greatly missed.
Glad Ms. Ciara hasn't needed the dreaded conehead...
Hugs and belly rubs,

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Welcome home! Everyone looks VERY glad to be back in the normal routine. Ciara your plushy babies will always be yours to love and play with...and we are certain that you will probably add to that impressive collection. Glad to hear you are being very good at not licking...that cone thing is a real pain to wear and you bump into stuff. Enjoy as many trreats as you can survived a near-death ordeal :)

Emma Rose said...

Poor Ciara! We really feel for you. But you just stnad your ground and I'll bet your Mom lets you keep all those babies!

Hope you feel better real soon.

Emma Rose

Joe Stains said...

Welcome back guys! Ciara I am sure your mom won't take away your stuffy babies! Keep being good so you don't have to be a cone head!

Lorenza said...

Welcome back!
I am happy to see you again!
Glad everything went well with Ciara's surgery!
I hope you will not need the lampshade!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Wyatt said...

Oh well least now you can keep your girlish figure. I imagine having lots of puppies is no picnic!

Benny and Lily said...

Kari in WeHo said...

I am sure you can keep those babies, just not have and that bark, and poop, and pee :)

Tanuki Maxx said...

Welcome back!!
Nice family photo!
Sorry to hear about your ordeal Ciara, but trust your mommy she knows what's best for you.hope you wont have to wear that cone thingy..


Deborah said...

AWWW, I hope your feel better soon and it looks like you already have a big family with all those babies! Glad your Mom & Dad are back from their visit!

Ruby's Raiser said...

Great post, Ciara! I'm sure your Mom and Dad are loading you up on the extra-yummy treats to make sure you heal properly! I know you hate the dreaded apparatus, but it always makes me smile when I think of the ol' saying: It's all fun and games till someone winds up in a cone. :)

Life With Dogs said...

Well, at least diapers are no longer part of the picture. That's a fine start!

Welcome home, you were missed...

Cyber-sibes said...

Aw, sweetie, woo'll be okay, an those stuffie babies will never leave woo (if woo don't destroy them).
Glad woo are all home from your Kennel Captivity. Welcome home to your beans, too.

Mr Koda MD said...

From what I hear, stuffie babies are much more practical than actual "puppies". And they do as they are told!

You'll be ok.... Conehead! Conehead!

Aw that was mean... Work your sadness with the Momster and you might get spoiled!

Dreaming about your sunpuddles...

The Two Country Poodles & Uncle Puppy said...

Welcome to the Spay/Neuter Club! Glad you are home and doing well. We will give you a mini recap of what we have been up to....We got shaved, we are going to a contest on Saturday, Uncle Puppy has a new nick name...the Tinklier, and I have been working on my dog whispering skills with Uncle Puppy. Now you are caught up on us.

Wags and Licks,
Mollie Jo & Bobo

Inigo Flufflebum and d'Artagnan Rumblepurr said...

Awww!! Poor little woofie, we know you're just milking the whole thing, but we still wanna give you lots of treats when we see your sweet face!

You have excellent humans for taking such good care of you :)

sparkeespud said...

Thanks guys for stopping by! I've been reading the blogs, just haven't been commmenting lately. Ciara you will heal up quickly and be back to pestering your brothers soon enough. You can have all the stuffed babies you want!

Mochi and Mommy said...

Welcome back! I love the first pic! :)

Poor Ciara! Trust me, it's so much better to be a good girl and get treats! You don't want that kind of cone!


the booker man said...

WB ya'll!!! we missed you lots! you sure are right about pup camp being tiring. me and asa like it a lot, but we snooze 'n snooze when we get home! um, miss ciara, please please be a good girlie and don't lick your tummy booboo. that cone is THE WORST THINGIE EVARRR. just keep giving your mama the puppy eyes for the cookies and treatsies!! :)
the booker man

Jake of Florida said...

What pawsome pictures! We understand why Thunder and Phantom were so tired after their stay in Camp Kennel. When we come back from our visits to camp, we snooze for two or three days. Camp is tiring -- all that jumping and barking and card playing and midnight movies!!!

And sweet Ciara -- we hope she's doing fine. What a beautiful young lady she is!!

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

And thank you for your kind thoughts about our Dogdad!!

Sue said...

You have the best kind of babies, Ciara. Your babies don't eat all the time and poop in the house. They don't make noise at night and they stay where you put them. Samba can tell you all about the other kind.

None of my girls had to wear the cone after their operations, but I did cheat and give them each a little pill to keep them sleepy.

FiveSibesMom said...

Welcome back! Beautiful babies! Great pics! And Camp Kennel can take a lot out of Sibe! We agree with Mr Koda MD, stuffie babies are way more fun...until they are shredded all over the house! Speedy recuperation to you!

Melissa and Emmitt said...

welcome home to all of you!
we missed you while i was away.
i am so glad you had a fun trip too. :)
ciara looks like she never even knew what happened!
what a cutie patootie!
m & e

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Welcome back you three..
Ciara you got your zipper. They told Mom that the zipper would slow the Pest down but they were sadly mistaken.. I think between the zipper and the bionic leg she is faster and more of a Pest..
Be good so they don't put that nasty cone on you..

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

Zona said...

Welcome back!!!!!!! You were certainly missed by all! I'm sorry about your ouchie but it goes away quick and it's totally worth it! I gots to keep all of my puzzle-toy babies too. (Aren't those puzzles the most fun??)


Sallie said...

That photo of you surrounded by babies was so touching I wanted to cry! I'm glad you are all back and healthy. Missed you.

sprinkles said...

Thanks for visiting my blog. You three are so beautiful!

Hope your belly heals soon, Ciara, and that you don't have to use the cone. It doesn't look like it would be comfy and it isn't exactly fashionable.

You may not be able to have any dog babies but you got the best kind! They won't steal your food or attention from Mom and Dad.

Kasha said...

Poor little Ciara! I hope she heals fast. I do wonder what the kennel thought of all of those gorgeous dogs. How much does that cost for so many?

Sierra Rose said...

Hello all of you! Hope the mum & dadsters made off to somewheres fabulous :) Ciara...heal well and quick my friend :) Haven't had to try the cone mode myself...but not sounding too fun...

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

Ciara - you are soooooooo beautiful in those photos. Don't worry about the babies, but keep away from that cone!

lotsaluv, Marvin xxxxx

Cheyenne -Millie said...

We just know that you will be a good mommie to all those stuffies! Just think! They will always listen to you and not make lots of messes!

I would hates a cone!

MAXMOM said...

Hey there Ciara
I hope you are feeling a lot better after your small operation. You sure do look beautiful!
I think you must be pleased too that your humans are home. Please send my love too to Phantom and Thunder and tell your mom that I also have those Angel Trumpets in my garden (But they will only flower in our summer...a while away)
Lotsaluv to you all

Twix said...

Ciara, my tummy always looks like that even when I have all my furs...well except for the incision. I have a scar on my tummy where your incision is for the same reason. You wanna see my scar sometime?
Glad you guys are back...make sure and stay inside this week!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Hi my beautiful woooooos!
I missed you.
I see you are all beautifully clean and smells good.
And I see the little ones pink tummy had a zipper put in. Oh my!
Well let me kiss that little pink tummy and you be a good girl and a good mommy to your stuffies -Ciara


JD and Max said...

Hi all - we're glad you all had a good time whilst you were away - we love the kennels too because we get fussed so much!

Ciara - poor baby! Our FH tells us that what you've had done is a much bigger op for the girls so we think you're terribly brave, as well as beautiful and clever! We're also impressed that you've thought it through enough to milk it for treats - good on you! And we think you're a wonderful mom to your babies - we're sure you're stuffie baby brood can only increase over time so try not to worry too much!

Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.
