Pinot's surgery &
our super nice weekend with Toffee's family!!!
Mom told us that we had an appointment with the vet on Friday evening.
(Momo) "Is anyone going to squeeze my butt again?!?"
(Pinot) "Whaaaaaaat??"
After the technician finished a check-up and a blood test for both of us,
Pinot was asked to stay overnight. :(
(Pinot) "Why am I going to stay here???"
A few hours after dropping off Pinot, our pawrents called the vet.
They were told that Pinot was relaxing and
no need to worry about.
Next morning, anxious mom called the vet again to see how Pinot was doing.
Eveyone at her work learnt that I was going to be neutered. :D
Thank you everyone for your good wishes.
An early Friday afternoon, I was neutered (phew!!)
and I took the longest nap at the hospital.

A happy reunion with my pawrents around 9pm on Saturday!!!!! I, Pinot was a half awake when this picture was taken. I don't remember much about that day.

I was happy to be home.

"I am still very VERY sleepy......"

On Sunday afternoon, Momo, mom and dad were about to leave to meet up

with our special friend's pawrents. But I had to stay home. :(

"Don't I look much better today, mom and dad!?!"

Many of you know our friends Toffee and his brudder Riley (Top)

who live in Boston, right?? :)

Their auntie Dasha (bottom) lives very close to us. Isn't she sweet? :)

Toffee and Riley stayed with their grandpawrents near Boston

but we were thrilled to meet up with their pawrents at our nearest park during

their short visit to Toronto.

(Photo from Toffee and Riley's blog.)

"Hellooooooooooo Cinnaspy! Welcome to Toronto!"
Dasha had to stay home but we were exciting to get to meet this little cute guy!
Cinnaspy and I enjoyed a little chitchat and walky. "Are you............ Toffee??"
No no... he is not.

Toffee's mom and dad2b are very VERY good people. :)

We enjoyed talking and taking some pictures on this bootiful afternoon.

Toffee, Riley! You have the bestest pawrents in the world.
We are happy that they are getting married soon!!! How exciting is that?? :) :)
Look at my happy face with Toffee's mom and dad2b.
We had a very very good time with your pawrents!!
Next time, we'll see you..........maybe in Boston! :)

After we said good-by, I saw this huge dog.... oh a police horsey.

"Is he on duty??" Pinot is here. Let me introduce my new friend!

Toffee's mom kindly brought this lobster guy from New England! Mom showed me another toy that Toffee's mom picked up for us.

"Squeeeeky!! My favourite! Thank you!"

I felt much better while resting with my mom and dad on the balcony.

Mom and dad kept talking how enjoyed meeting up with Toffee's pawrents this afternoon.

(Pinot) "I really wanted to see them!"


I might look funny in this cone head but it has some good things.

First of all, it keeps some privacy while picking up my snack on the floor.Secondly, I have much better hearing.

"Dad, the alien is landing somewhere on the earth!"

Late evening, mom and dad decided to take us out for a short walky.

Then guess what happen???

We ran into Toffee's mom and dad2b!!!!

Correctly, they saw us and jumped out from the car! :)

I, Pinot was SO happy when someone called my name in the darkness.

Mom was so slow and she couldn't figure out who called my name.

(Pinot) "Mom, why don't you put my corn head on! hehehe"

Wow, I finally got to see them in pawson!!

OMD, What a great day!!

Once again, Toffee's mom and dad2b, Thank you very much for your time with us.

You made our day!!! We hope your safe flight back to Boston.

Momo & Pinot/J & R

pee ess: Happy Father's Day!! :)

Maggie & Mitch said...

What a bummer that you have to wear the dreaded lampshade, Pinot! It sounds like you had a blast with Toffee's hoomans! We hope you can all meet again someday soon!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Ricky Pepper said...

awww how nice you got to see Toffee and all of the pups! Sorry about your satellite dish but it's helping you heal, right? We hope you feel better after your surgery. The healing is easier for boys :)

Toffee said...

What a nice post = )
Yes, we did arrive home safely, thank you.
Oh! And happy belated father's day to your dad!
Toffee was so very jealous that she could not come out ant meet you both - she told me that she would howl and howl and howl because she would have so much to say to you!
Thanks again for a great day!
Toffee's mom & dad2b

Snowball said...

Its so nice of Toffee's hooman to come visit you.

Pinot, its just fated that you get to meet them too. Perhaps having that cone on is not a bad idea since it helps to improve your hearing but I am not keen to try... hee...


Sophie Brador said...

M & P, Sounds like loads of fun, except for that surgery part.


Shelby said...

Pinot - you had the big snip snip! And it looks good on you too! So, looks like we go to the same vet - I can't believe I've never bumped into you guys there! So, do you have a favorite doctor? I do - we call him Dr. Supercute (I won't say his real name in case he's reading this and figures out that my mom and I have a huge crush on him! But don't worry - we know he's not available). I'll give YOU a hint - his real name is very similar to what my mom and I call him. But we don't call him that to his face, of course!

Stanislaw said...

What an exciting day!
I'm glad your snip snip went well, Pinot. Work that cone collar for all it's worth - people take pity on dogs in those collars and I'm pretty sure you can finagle some extra treats out of them...

Blue said...

Hi, you two!

Terrific to hear from you.
Oh, Pinot - so sorry about the cone.
Glad the move went well.

Love, pats & pets to all

Toffee said...

Psst! Tell your mom that she can buy you a "Sniffany & Co." box from the fancy pet boutique on Cumberland avenue just west of Bay street. They also have the Dog perignon AND the fancy harnesses that you two already have.

How is Pinot doing? He must be pretty much healed by now?

Gosh Pinot, too bad you had to stay in the animal hospital over night. I was just in for the day when I got neutered. Good to hear all went well.

Hugs and tail wags
ps. Your mum would like our village. The coffee is very good & there are lots of nice cafes too.

Amber-Mae said...

That Pinot looked kinda dopey & sleepy after his surgery. Hope he's healing up very well today. I know you guys had a fun time together with & Cinnaspy!

Mack said...

Pinot -
Sorry about the snip, snip. I had it done myself and my advise is to look sad you will get a TON of treats!!

Clover said...

Love Clover xo

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Oh, Pinot, we're so glad you had a chance to meet Toffee and Riley's pawrents. It's a shame you missed the afternoon meeting with them.

Now that you have been neutered, you are considered a big boy. You have really grown!

Enjoy some rest with Momo.

Stanley said...

Momo & Pinot!

I'm so sorry that I missed all the news about Pinot going in for surgery until after everything was done. I have to say, though, that Pinot looks mighty fine in that lampshade. It's not everydog who can pull of that fashion accessory.

Momo, did you get to take care of Pinot & nurse him back to health? I'm sure you're a great nursie.

SO COOL that you got to meet Toffee's parents! HOw cool that Pinot got to meet them at the last minute!

Goober love & smooches,
