I'm All Better Now

Last Friday, I got really excited because my Mom got up early and took me for a ride in the car. It wasn't a fun trip though. She dropped me off at the animal hospital. They shaved one of my legs and stuck a needle in there. I got really sleepy and don't know what happened after that. Just as well, I'm sure.

Post-op Rusty

When I woke up, I felt really weird. I cried and cried in the cage. My Mom must have heard me because she finally came and picked me up. I freaked out in the car a little bit and she tried to keep me calm (and drive safely at the same time). I felt safer when I got home and slept a lot. And got lots of hugs.

I'm feeling all better now, but I seem to be missing several teeth! Yikes!

Weekend Outing

Rusty At Venice Beach

Last Sunday, my Mom and Dad and I went on an outing. Or a couple of outings, I suppose. First, we went to a local pet adoption fair. We are not getting another pet, but they wanted to see the animals and it was a nice, warm day to be outdoors. We saw lots of cats, bunnies, and dogs, of course. I hope all of them found great homes like I did.

After the fair, we drove in the car out to Venice Beach. We tried to go to a restaurant that caters to dogs and their humans called The Hydrant Café. Well, it's no longer there, which was a little disappointing (for my Mom. I was just happy to be out on the town!) The three of us then took a nice walk over to the Venice Beach Boardwalk. There were lots of people and dogs and some very interesting smells. I wish I could go onto the actual beach there, but no dogs allowed.

All in all, it was a great day and I slept really well that night.

  • I went to the vet today for a check-up. Besides being pretty healthy, she said I was really cute! I do have to go in and have some dental work done. I have a loose tooth and need a cleaning.
  • My birthday was quiet. No big party or anything, but I did get two brand new tennis balls!
  • We are having beautiful weather! Little Guy is still on "rest" precautions for a recent hip injury, so he isn't allowed to run around and wrestle with me. I miss that. He will be better soon.
Happy Spring!

What's New In Rustyland?

  • Well, it's getting warmer outside, which I really like.
  • Little Guy hurt his hip and had to go to the vet.
  • He's on "strict rest" right now, so Squirrel Patrol is all up to me for now.
  • My Mom started putting this really yummy powder supplement on our food. I got really excited, as I'd gotten bored with eating, but now we're out.
  • There's talk of me going to work soon, but I have to take some tests first.
