Turns out Max is a stuffie!

Our brave pal Max is back home from the Vet (hooray!!!) but from the photo above, you can see he clearly is a stuffie and apparently, his doctor tried to de-stuff him.

As you can see below, many of our friends are advanced surgeons when it comes to this advanced procedure.

Like Tanner, demonstrating here his delicate one-tooth approach to extraction.

Here is Dr. Asta, just an intern at the time of this photo, but already showing tremendous promise as an efficient Stuffie Surgeon.

No operation is too intimidating for Surgical Assistance Nurse Lacie who has been known to skip the patient's anesthesia in her haste to begin the operation. "This won't last but a few minutes," she brusquely replies, stuffing dangling daintily from her left canine.

Oh and should you believe that only terriers make the best stuffy surgeons, I beg to differ. Just look at the finesse my darling sister-in-law Gabbi shows as she carefully peels away the skin from this obviously ailing tennis ball.

And our beloved Head Nurse Snickers, has not only performed many successful destuffing operations, but she has also assisted Dr. Snickenstein in reversing destuffing surgeries for countless hapless wheelies.

So if our dear friend Max is indeed a stuffie, as photos report, one question remains...

"Did they remove your squeaky box, Max????"

Do drop by Max's blog and wish him a fast recovery!

The Ladies of Beaglebratz Manor said...

Oh yes, both of us Beaglebratz r quite proficient in the surgical specialty of de-stuffing and removal of any squeekerz that mite b cauzing problemz. In fact with surgical nurse Shasta, her specialties include other areas such az tissue-rearrangement an'removin' unwanted cell phone parts. An'Dr. Shiloh will kleer any surface pronto to make rume fer whatever iz needed. Hmmm - maybe we shood include pikchures in r blog sumtime tu show r surgical prowess - mom duz haf sum - she must b proud tu show off r abilitiez.

We need tu go wish Max good healing thoughtz.

Eric said...

Hey Bestie! Wagging news about Max.Hope he ate lot of treats to fill out the destuffied space. Congrats to Mother for passing clown school. Perhaps I'll look out for her behind my paws if she's a gator...

Wiry loves and kisses Eric xx

Maxmom said...

This is the biggest laugh I have had today!!! Your clown training is certainly paying off! You are clown deluxe!!
Thanks...we soo needed that!!!

It's so good to see the funny side of life. By the way...that 'stent' was soon scratched off by Maxdog. I took him back to the Vet and now he's bandaged up....all over the shoulders in a figure 8....seems like he's a bit late for Halloween...Pity!
Love from Max's mom in SA

NAK and The Residents of The Khottage said...

I bet your post made Max pop his stent!

What a great grin!


Clive said...

Great post Petey! We were amazed to think that Max would leave that stent alone! Glad he got more bandages put on!

take care

Hi, Petey!
I am very happy for Max!
Kisses and hugs

Hamish Westie said...

Hi Petey
Useful tips indeed for one who hasn't yet quite got the hang of stuffie destuffing (despite being a fully paid up member of the terrier family).
Cheers, H.

Molly the Airedale said...

Thanks for the smiles, Petey! We needed them!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Dexter said...

I, too, was alarmed to see max's stuffing coming out. I hope that he doesn't lose anything important.

"Nurse" Lacie? Humph. More like scare you healthy.


TwoSpecialWires said...

We've got to admit this is funny. Really funny. Even though post-surgical Max provided the inspiration (Moma teaches us, "if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all"). But now you've got us wondering. Do you think there is a bank for squeak-box, growler, and bark box transplants? We could use a few.

Hoping Max didn't laugh too hard. That'd be hard on the stitches.

Thinking you are something else,
Jake and Fergi

We love the post.. Mom is laughing..

Yaaayyy, another happy and smiley and funny post.....thanks Petey darling, you're the best!
Such good news about Max and his stuffing and hilarious pics, especially of Joe....he always makes us chuckle :D
Continued prayers for Maxdog and Miss Snickers.
(Oh, and we are glad you realised that pic is of your sis-in-law....before Rosie saw it! We sneaked over last night.)

Lotsa love,
Your Monsters-in-law xxxx

nice one petey!!

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Oh Petey...we needed a giggle...though that destuffin' I did of that stuffed tick was no laughin' matter...sorta a situation of who bites whom first....

We are so gladdest that Max is feeling better...I do hope his squeaker is intact...if he needs an extra one, Scruffy has swallowed numerous ones...I'm sure he could donate...

Scruffy deskinned an entire tennis ball...now I know you've probably done this manuver dozens of times, but it was a first here...

Kisses, Petey...left ya a comment on ur chat box...


Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

Hehe...too cute! I love stuffies myself, but I doubt that I am a qualified de-stuffier like the doctors and nurses featured here! *grins*
