Wednesday with a Woo





One bodyguard.

The other bodyguard.


Wonder what they are guarding?

Just resting peacefully.



All rested - now to get out and get that critter!

Why can't I chase it?


OK - time for more resting.




Woos - Phantom

Note from Mom:  We increased Phantom's tramadol intake last week, along with his deramaxx.  We added gabapentin on Saturday, and he will now be getting his Adequan injections every two weeks or maybe even weekly if they seem to add more comfort for him.  Overall, he is holding his own.  He is a bit better than last week, but spends most of his day just resting.  When he is at his best, his eyes continue to sparkle and he eats what I like to call "Phantom-style", not much, but at least something.  He IS my fighter.

As long as he's comfortable and happy. The sparkle in the eye is always the key.

Phantom, glad you are doing a bit better. I can't tell what all that guarding is about either. Seems a little strange to me.

BeadedTail said...

We're so glad to hear that Phantom is doing well! He looks wonderful! Our mommy took tramadol and just one put her in and out of awareness and she ended up with bruises all over her body from running into things. She doesn't remember what and we're not telling!

Millie and Walter said...

Keep up the good fight Phantom.

I adore my adopted Brother Phantom, my blue eyed beautiful boy, he is such a fighter, he looks happy wanting to chase the critters in the garden and both Ciara and Lighting seem to be taking care of him, they are so good! I like to sleep, so I'm going to rest just like you! Love, Licks, Tummy Tickles and Power of Paw with Prayers Frank XxxxxxxxX

I see that sparkle....sometimes I don't but sometimes - well - Phantom looks just grand. Rest is good....at least rest isn't painful while sometimes just standing might be. Sending big PURRS from me and hugs from my Mom!

Love, Sam

Jake of Florida said...

Dear Boy, It's not in my DNA to actually woo. Would you accept a loving woof instead???

Resting is good; critters can wait!


Wirey love,

Rebekah and My Rotten Dogs said...

Thinking of you and Phantom.

Marg said...

Oh that is great news. Sorry I didn't see this sooner. Tramadol is good stuff. We had one of our dogs on that. If he is still happy and eating a little bit, all is good. We think about you all the time Phantom and say lots of prayers for you. Hope all of you have a great day.

Sue said...

He's looking a bit better. What's gabapentin? Morgan took Adequan shots weekly for awhile after she injured her knees. Her back legs are pretty weak now so we'll probably start them again after her May checkup.
