How I became Mr. Nubbin'

So this seems like a good time to fill you all in on how I became Mr. Nubbin'.   It started almost 2 years ago.  I had bump on my tail and mom and dad thought it would be better to take it off before it got any bigger.  So we went to see Dr. Barb and she did a wonderful job taking it off, but seeing how it's a tail you know there is not a lot of skin to work with.   We went back every couple days to get a new bandage.  After about 3 weeks though it still wasn't healing right so mom and Dr. Barb decided it would probably just be better to doc my tail.  So we did that and things were going good.  Except for the whole part where I had to walk around in a lamp shade for ever and ever.

Then I got a really really weird infection and it stopped healing.  Dr. Barb had us go see the very wonderful Dr. Michelle and she looked and said yep we can fix you right up.  So Dr. Michelle took off the rest of my tail and gave me my most wonderful Nubbin'!  

My mom claims I have the most expressive Nubbin' and I don't knock stuff off all the tables any more with my tail.  :-)  


  1. Hi Boomer! My mom has never seen a picture of you with your bandaged tail. Poor you! But now you're a Most Unique ridgeback!

    Oh, and what I discovered is that the best way to make furends is to make comments on other doggies' bloggies. And I'm gonna make sure to mention your new bloggie on mine sometime this week!
