Update on NBS Executive Editor Assistant Publisher Copy Dog Henry

March 27, 2007 09:41 PM

As you may have read here, NBS's mostly companion Henry had a bit of a surgery last week to remove an unidentified foreign object from his shoulder.  His recovery is going well.  The drain came out on Monday, but he still has a hole that leaks blood and fluid.  I continue to be amazed that he was returned to us in a leaky condition, but apparently that's normal.

He spent the weekend hating the E collar, but now that the drain is out, we've discovered that putting an old t-shirt on him keeps him from going after his stitches.  We're not really the dog dress up types, but whatever works.  Now he has freedom of movement, and that has made him a lot more happy.  Mrs. NBS said she thinks our son actually likes wearing clothes.  I say as long as it's not women's underwear, I guess it's okay.  It's a Bush-Cheney '04 t-shirt, actually, and I tried to take a picture of him in it, but the task just proved impossible.  I have a new found respect for people who actually photograph animals and manage to get them in some sort of a pose. 

Still no word on the pathology results.  We're all very curious.


Poor Henry! That blood all over the duvet post had me in, er, stitches, though. (I'd like to see him in an "I'm blogging this" t-shirt, because I am a dork.)
