Woe is me on Wooless Wednesday

I think I need some help here.

Mom says today is my big boy day. I thought I already WAS a big boy - that's what all of you keep saying.

So I checked with my pal Ciara, but she just said today is Wooless Wednesday.

Along came Thunder, but all he would say was "snip snip time".

Hey, where did she come from? She said she heard Grandma say I was getting a microchip - is that something good to eat like those barbecue chips in the cabinet?

Then I asked the old and wise Phantom (he is going to be 13 this month), but can you believe it - he just laughed!!!

The last thing I heard from Mom was that it was time to get in the car and head off for my "tutoring". All these big words have me very confused.

Woos and woe is me - Lightning


Stella said...

This is such a good thing for you, Lightning! You might have to wear a collar when you come home,just for a few days. but you will never be sorry you did this.

Take my word for it.


Suka said...

hey Ligtning,

RUN!!! I don't think you will want tutoring. I didn't, but it happened anyway. Oh well, I suppose we must face the inevitable. Be strong! My paws are crossed that it all goes well and you are healthy.

You will be a big boy now, but just with a softer "woo." BOL!


Suka said...

p.s. I love all the photos! I can't stop looking at them! You are all such beauties!

Karen Jo said...

I am afraid that microchips aren't for eating. Don't worry about your "tutoring" -- it will only be sore for a day or two. It will help you be a happier, healthier dog.

Oh my Lightning, I is sorry that you won't be getting any BBQ chips. The one you will get won't hurt, but ah, well, ah you won't feel a thing, kinda.

But in the long run you will thank your Pawrents for being the responsible Pawrents that they are!

woos, Tessa

Princess Jasmine said...

Simba says he is keeping his paws crossed for you and that maybe you should keep yours tightly crossed too!!! Good luck Lightening, big kitty kisses :)xxxx

Maggie and Mitch said...

Our paws are crossed that everything will go just fine for you, Lightning!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Jake of Florida said...

You'll be fine, dear boy!!! We've both been tutored and look how smart we are!!!!!

And we bet there will be treats involved post-tutoring!

By the way, you are all so so so handsome/beautiful!

Wirey love,

Jake an Just Harry

Peruby said...

I asked my Boxer and he sighed and said "All over before it even begins!" Then he rolled over and went back to sleep.

Too bad his tutoring didn't take care of his "tooting!"

Good luck!

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Paws khrossed fur all to go well -

AND I do think this will enable woo to play The Momster fur extra Lightning lovin' time!


Just Ramblin' said...

Hope all goes well! Smart thing to do. :)

Gus said...

It will be OK and you will have an interesting scar to show the ladies.


Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Bibi-Chan, Gen-Chan, Vidock said...

#1 ays not to worry, Lightning, you'll be just fine. It seems there is a "tutoring" in my near future too...


Amber DaWeenie said...

You and Phantom look so nice together in that foto! Forget about the "tutoring" and jus think bout all the treats you'll get afterward! WooHoo


Sugar the Golden Retriever said...

Woof! Woof! Happy Woeless Wednesday. Saw your Hal photos ... so cute. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Stewey said...

It's okay, Lightning. You're going to be just fine. The day after my "tutoring," I was zooming like crazy in the backyard!

houndstooth said...

I have a microchip, and I never felt a thing! As for that tutoring business, well, I've never been tutored, but we'll all have our paws crossed for you until we hear you're home safe!


Ginger Jasper said...

Frankie Furter said...

It is your BIG BOY day fur SURE!! It will all be over in about 87 seconds and guess what??? You get to take a nice NAP..

BUTT I think they all furgot to tell you about.. THE CONE OF SHAME

jen said...

LMAO! Don't worry Lightning, your "tutoring" will be over before you know it, and I bet you will back to yourself by tomorrow, just minus a few things:)

SissySees said...

See... especially with WEE Gretchen, I spent a lot of time explaining to my girls what was about to happen and why it had to happen. I firmly believe you dogs understand English very fluently...

rottrover said...

You'll be fine, little buddy. Your voice won't get high or anything!

Your friend,


Cyber-sibes said...

Been there, done that.... the good part is that woo only need to get tutored ONCE. You'll be bouncing around again in no time! Good luck, pup!

Sarge said...

Hey Lightning!
Wow, what great pix! Ah, yes, the tutoring. It's a rite of passage that we must bear. The cone of shame will be the worst part. The extra attention and treats will be the best part. You will just be missing a few parts! BWAR HAR HAR.
I'm sending you some healing vibes and all will be well.
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Corbin said...

Mircochip is even better than a potato chip! It means you will always be brought home to those potato chips incase you ever get lost! YUM!

Kari in Vegas said...

No worries, its a GOOD thing

Stop on by for a visit



Big boys only carry big sticks... no berries required.

Chicco said...

Hello dear friend,
Come to my blog to celebrate my birthday!
Woof, woof,


Tucker The Crestie said...

Oh, sweetie, you're gonna be ok. You'll have a little ouchie, but you'll probably get lots of extra treats while it's healing.

BeadedTail said...

We're all girls here so we don't really know about the tutoring Lightning but we're crossing our paws and purring you recover from the tutoring quickly! We're glad you're getting microchipped even if it's not something yummy to eat!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Oh, Lightning, you are in for a big surprise. We suggest a nice long nap when you get home.

Berts Blog said...

Don't listen to any of them Lightning, just RUN run like the wind, be gone in a flash like the little bolt of "Lightning" that you are. go my friend, don't even stop to Pack your bags. run....

Whoops, you are already in the car, aren't you.

Oh well Dude, at least this way you can stay with your family. Sorry, but it is inevitable.

Just think of that big cone around your head as a left over halloween accessory.

See ya when the lights come back on.

And be sure to ask for drugs....lots and lots of drugs


Chester said...

Oh no! I'm afraid I'm too late. Well, all's I gotta say is you're gonna get some good drugs while you're out today.

Woofs and snipped slobbers,
Chester ;0=)

Don't you worry abouts it, Lightning. My Brudder Ranger got tutored a long time ago and now he's SUPER smart! Good luck!

Wiggles & Wags,

Tucker said...

tutoring made me very sleepy, clumsy, and I had to pee a lot. Don't lick back there and they won't put you in a cone. I didn't need a cone.

woof - Tucker

24 Paws of Love said...

Lightning get out of there while you still can! It's a cover, there is no "tutoring." Dive! Dive! Dive!

Too Late?? Sorry dude, we all must pass that way sometime.

Sending paw prayers that all goes well and you are home safe and sound in no time. <3

Sue said...

Well, it depends on who you ask. The girls all say" this is a great day". Sky and Noah just sigh and say "You'll get over it". Fudge says "Run for the hills and don't look back."

As far as the microchip goes, it doesn't hurt and could be the best thing ever.

Good luck little guy.
Morgan, Tsar and the Porties

Miley said...

Oh (big) boy!!! Best of luck to you, it will all be over before you know it! Gosh, I hope you don't get the CONE!!

Madi and Mom said...

Lightning...OMC you are a handsome woofie. And oh my goodness what a beautiful little munchkin sitting on the floor with you!!
As for the microchip, if you ketchup on it, I'm purrty sure that will make it very tasty. Mom went shopping ALL day and is so late checking in...there will be demerits.
Hugs from your

Deborah said...

YAH, that's the best little invention, especially for a husky!!

Anonymous said...

Oh boy...we agree with what other people have said--run!! Good luck with your tutoring and microchipping--hope it all went well today. We're sure it probably did!

Just want to say that Riley LOVES her new Monkey toy! In fact, she was able to decapitate it today but had a blast doing it, so I don't mind.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Hi Lightning
Yes,, your a very big boy.
You will make some new friends today. I hope you do at least get a treat to eat, then come home and sleep.
I hope the tutoring goes good.

River said...

Tutoring is done when you are asleep. It doesn't make sense but humans are that way. I hope you get a lot of treats when you wake up!

love & wags,

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

These are two important Rites of Passage to being an adult doggie, Lightning. So dig deep, grin and bear it - and work your mom for all the treats you can get. And lots of special 'just Lightning' cuddle time.

Jed & Abby

KB said...

Ruh roh, the big dogs are playing games with you. But, after today, you'll be even more like those big brothers and sisters.

I have to say that your photos melt my heart. You are SO cute.

I hope that you're feeling okay tonight after all the excitement.

ForPetsSake said...

Well, they say all good things must come to an end. Sorry it's "tutoring" time but at least some good drugs and extra snuggles are in your future! Good, positive thoughts going out to you and your pack!

Aksharaa said...

Hi Guys, Glad to see u all have been doing just fine...we were gone for just too long. We almost missed Lightening's puppyhood!

PHEW! It WAS brain surgery! Ah, Lightning, I guarantee there's some extra treats in your future! Milk it for all it's worth!

Happy, Waggin' Tails, FUREVER!

ArtemisiaFSS said...

Sorry buddy, I got my big boy surgery when I was a baby so I don't remember it at all. I had to have it before they would let Mommy bring me home. ~Fenris

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

Poor Lightning!! I hope you are feeling better!!!

Soggibottom said...

Good little lad, your loved and have a loving family WHO DO THE RIGHT THING.... not my turn yet :-) lots of luvs, get well soon...

FiveSibesMom said...

Ahhh, the "big boy" surgery! (Quick, run for the hills!)

Wow, Lightning is beautiful. I can't believe how big he is! He blends in perfectly with the rest of the beautiful family.

Hope the surgery all went well! My Wolf cried the whole night, the whole next morning, and most of that day. It was a long night! But he is a very sensitive boy. Poor guy, he had a recessed "item" that only just dropped the day before his surgery. No wonder he cried.

the_Dogfather said...

I've got the chip too!! Just think of it as getting your social security number (^.~)v.

Sagira said...

Wow, is it big boy time already? Where does the time go. I hope your surgery went well.

Oskar said...

Lightning, this isn't the funnest of times for us pups, but it's pretty important & it will probably make you a happier guy.
