That old dog is back

As you probably know, we recently brought in another dog named Beauregard. At first I thought 'great, another dog to compete with for food and attention and sleeping space. Just what we need around here.' They have already taken over the couch for the most part. And they get most of the attention nowadays. I mean as cats we generally could care less what people want, and only bother with their affections when it suits us, but it would still be nice not to have to jockey for position.

But then when he arrived I realized he was a pretty pathetic sight. He had huge tumors all over him and he could hardly walk and there was no way he was going to be getting up on the couch. And he is so old! Older than Bunsen even, who before Beau was the oldest thing in the house.

And to top it off he came back from the vet's today. They removed some of his tumors and he is even more pathetic than before. He is half-shaven and... well here just look at the picture.

I kind of feel sorry for the old guy now

I hope he feels better soon. I also hope with that big tumor gone that he won't be able to jump on the couch.


  1. I hope he feels better soon!!!

  2. Poor buddy! Hope he bounces back really soon.

  3. Poor Beau. Maybe you can get him a sweater to wear to make him feel a little better. Sending healing drool. Sniffs, The HoundDogs

  4. He has a recovery bed, which is two heating pads beneath three or four old towels, an old blanket, and some puppy pads. He lays on that and then we cover him up with another old blanket.
