Serene Scenery Sunday

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me, Zim, here with Serene Scenery Sunday.  How about we get things started with a sunset picture? This is a panoramic shot Mom took:

If that doesn't make you feel all peaceful inside, I don't know what will! Here's what really did it for me, though! Ready?

That's right - a trip to the Kansas State University Vet Med Teaching Hospital, AKA our vets!

As you might remember, I had surgery back in August and I'm still in the healing phase as far as my incision area goes. And ... you know ... in the hoodie.  I had one of my follow-up appointments on Thursday.  Come on in the exam room with me!

Here I am, chilling out while my senior student briefs my vet on how I'm doing:

See that door behind me?  That's "the back".  Every vet seems to have a "the back".  I usually don't have to go in "the back"; I am calmest around my mom, so if they can, they do everything in here.

While I was waiting, I heard a Lab back there and a few kit-cats.

"Ha roo?"

I knew they were in good hands back there, but I wanted them to feel serene.  I sent them mind-meld messages of calmness through the door.

"I'm here for you guys!"

I did some yoga while I waited, too.

"...and stretch..."

Then... my student and vet came in and gave me the news!

"What?!?!  I can go CONE-FREE?!?!"

Oh, sure, sure, actually they said I'm supposed to be "weaned off the cone" ... something about "close supervision" ... something else about using the BiteNot collar if I don't leave that area alone (because I have an ear infection now...) ... but all I heard was that we're ditching the cone!!!  If I'm "good".  Would that be "good"-good or "Siberian"-good?  Ha roo roo roo!

I'm the picture of innocence.

Trust me. I'm a Siberian Husky.

Keep it serene - and remember to be "good"!

Play bows,


  1. Oh boy, I bet you are so happy to be cone free!

  2. Oh such good news. But you got an ear infection now. YOu must let them put the medicine in and not mess with your owie area and you will be all better and cone free.

    This is great Sunday news plus a beautiful picture of the sun rise
    to boot.

    Good stuff


  3. Zim, we never realized what gorgeous bi-eyes you have. Stunning!!!

  4. Zim, you sure get comfy at the vet's office. Maybe you heard Willie the Wildcat on the other side of that door! We're glad you are cone free now and we hope your ear infection clears up quickly!

  5. Woo Hoo. No Cone! I am so lucky I have never had to wear one, even after my surgery. Glad you were a comfort to the others "in the back".

  6. yippeeeeeeeeeeeee - we are so happy to hear that the cone is history, Zim!
    Your sunset is just gorgeous!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch
