May ORT Report

Woo...it's the New Moon and I didn't miss posting this update for the Totally Useless Stitch A Long! And I actually have a few ORTs in the jar this month ~ how long has it been, anyway? Also shown here is a little peek at my new WIP. I can't tell you how tickled I am at creating ORTs!


In the last month, little Miss Molly got old enough to be spayed. While at the vet she was also micro-chipped and had her rear dewclaws removed. She wasn't a happy camper but she got cute purple leopard print socks to wear...until she ate one the next morning. We never did find it! Maybe they were biodegradable?  I will spare you gruesome images of the incisions on her ankles but will say they were much more than we expected. I think they were worse than her tummy by far. However, this is better than catching a floppy claw on a couch cushion and ripping it off. 


Molly decided she HAD to lick her incisions, no matter what. The vet gave her this pretty blue bib to wear. If she worked at it she could still reach her feet but it mostly kept her from serious licking. This fabric E collar was very nice compared to the rigid plastic one we threatened her with. And if I flipped this one up Molly looked like a Big Blue Border Collie Daisy. She enjoyed all the giggles...and the dog-party brown rice, ground beef and yoghurt she got to eat after anesthesia. That was the best part.



Molly turned 6 months old today!
Happy half-birthday Mollywog!

Poor Molly - she looks like she feels hard done by but it's for the best really in the long term and she will soon forget it ever happened :)

Here is my ort report for the month - I got quite a bit done as per usual lol. Tusal & UFO #11: The 8th century floor tile

Vickie said...

Your Molly, and our Henry. He just got neutered today. Unfortunately, he has the plastic, rigid collar. Boy does he try and try to lick.

tusal posted! Molly looks so cute with that blue bib!!

minerva said...

Poor Molly - love the pretty blue collar though! Our labrador had a plastic blow-up one that looked like the rubber ring you give kids when they can't swim......did the trick although he kept bouncing off the walls!

I'm new to the TUSAL so here's my report for May:

Carol said...

Looks like a nice patriotic WIP you have started there, Sharon! Hope Molly is back to her normal, perky self very soon!

Julie said...

woohoo ... a little bit of stitching to see, how wonderful you have had some relaxation stitch time.
Awww Molly does look a little downhearted, bless her.

Lesleyanne said...

Glad you have managed to get some stitches in. Great pictures of Molly, such a cutie. I have posted my orts report today.

Lynn said...

those e collars have gotten MUCH nicer!

Loubie69 said...

You have such a cute dog, I can just about remember my border collie at that age. Hope she has recovered ok from both the spaying and the dew claw removal.

Good to see you have also managed some stitching.

I am a couple of days late with my ort report but here is the link

Magpie's Mumblings said...

Awww - poor Molly! Must say though that the collar is so much better than the hard plastic instrument of torture we had to put on our Odin when he had his eye removed. That thing was a menace! My tusal is late, but it's up! (magpiesmumblings.blogspot.com)

geeky Heather said...

Whew, good thing Molly didn't need the Cone of Shame!

Cole said...

Yay! Stitching! Good for you girl!

Molly is a cutie :D

Kathy Koontz said...

Beautiful Molly...love the fabric e-collar. I will totally have to look into one when I have my English Mastiff spayed. I am several days late (and possibly a few dollars short) but here is my TUSAL post

Sooo late posting my TUSAL, but it's up now: http://auldgreymare.blogspot.com/2013/05/may-theme-alicious-progress-report-and.html Hope you get more time to stitch this month!

Here's my May TUSAL post - http://serendipitousstitching.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/may-tusal-and-some-joan-elliott.html

And here's an idea - type the rest of the year's TUSAL posts and schedule them for the relevant day then all you have to do each month is add a photo if you have one. Courtesy of The Lazy Girl's Guide to Blogging LOL.

Shannon Meyer said...

Well, it's late, but I finally got my TUSAL posted!!

Good to see you were able to get back to stitching some. I think we all get those times where we are too busy or too stressed to pick up a needle. I usually have that happen to me every spring into early summer. Been keeping at it this year though.

Dani - tkdchick said...

Glad to see you producing orts again!

SueH said...

Once again I’m late………one day I’ll make it on time, Lol!
Glad to hear you’ve actually managed to find time for some stitching this month.
Sorry to hear that Molly has had to undergo surgery but both important and better have done while she’s young. I’m sure she’ll bounce back to health very soon.
My May TUSAL is here.
Happy Stitching!
