Tongue Piercing? Ouchie, holy mother of dog!

Howdy Everybuddy.  What a day I had today.  Well actually the fun started Saturday night when my brother found a chewed up thumb tack on the lounge room floor.  Where it came from no one knows and it's a mystery.  Did it come in on someone's shoe?  We just don't know.  

I didn't tell mum but I had a good chew on it for a while until I felt a stabbing pain right in the middle of my tongue.  Home job tongue piercing?  Dont even think about it!   Warning tongue photo below (not mine thank dogness!)

 I didn't tell a soul about my painful encounter cause it darn well hurt and I was feeling stoopid.  Anyhoo, by Sunday morning my tongue was sore but I still didn't let mum know.  We went to School and I was a little turd star.  I think I forgot to tell everybuddy but I have passed into Grade 6 but Rory is still in Grade 5.  I've decided to stay in his class till he gets used to being on his own.  He loves me butt is a sooky guts and always wants to be near me.  He can't help it though.  He is my little brother.

 Anyhoo (again), on the way home Mum thought I seemed a little quiet butt it was a pretty hot day so she thought I was worn out.  I slept quite a bit but still ate and drank and didn't drool or pant.

Next day, (today, Monday) mum went Christmas shopping (again) but came home with nothing but had managed to stop for coffee and a muffin and chat with a friend for about 87 hours.   I was home, suffering I tell you, suffering!

Mum finally came home, sat down to have coffee, again, and I yawned in front of her.  Well that was it, she jumped up, grabbed the torch and nearly rammed it down my throat.  My dog she sure had a good old look.  I sat like a little turd angel while she had me in the head lock.  She called the family and said I had something stuck in my tongue.  Then she thought she would check Rory's tongue to see if it looked the same so he had the torch rammed down his throat while she felt around.  Nothing on him and after this he ran and hid under the dining room table.  Why oh why, didn't I think to do the same I will never know.

So after a quick phone call to the Vet I was tossed in the back of the car and off we went.  My friends, I was amazing.  I sat wriggling and squirming still as a statue while Miss Prue checked my tongue.  After a couple of minutes, yes she could see something.  She thought it might be a grass seed although she thought this would be highly unlikely.  So because I was so good she said I could stay on my own for a little while so she could have a good look. 

Well mates, you would be proud.  I lay there and didn't move a muscle the whole time.  I believe I looked similar to this except I wasn't at the footy and I wasn't on my sissy's lap!

Stella, you little ratbag, you were under an anaesthetic. 

Oh mum, you don't know, you weren't even there.  As I was saying, there I lay, calmly letting Miss Prue check out my tongue while I counted sheep in my head.  Next thing I know, mum is back and off we went home.  Apparently I had a cut/pierce on my tongue, an ulcer had started next to it and it was pretty raw.  I had an injection of antibiotics too.  My dog, I was so brave.  

Butt, after all this trauma, stress and shock, the worst was yet to come.  Mum will not feed me.  That's right mates.  She says I cannot eat until tomorrow!!   What!  Please, ring the RSPCA for me will ya?  I'm STARVING.  

Well I'm feeling pretty sleepy now so will go and have a snooze.  

I hope mum feeds me tomorrow zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

P.S.  From Rory.  Stella is fine now, just cross cause she isn't allowed to eat till the morning.  And by the way, I'm not a sooky guts.  Well, not all the time anyway!  

No worries, and slobber, Rory and Stella

  9. Oh my goodness that was a huge OUCHIE! Made my eyes water just reading about it. Poor Stella, can't you suck some soup through a straw or something so you don't fade away. Please no more chewing on things you shouldn't. Healing tongue thoughts winging their way across the miles xx

    It was good that your mum found your ouchie and it'll get better.

  15. Dear Stella, that was ouchy I'm sure but HILARIOUS! If you'd kept your thumb tack, you might have been the only dog in the world with a tongue piercing!

    I like how your sooky LITTLE brother is towering over you in the masthead piccie. BWAH haha! X

  16. Stella to bad momma couldn't fix yu something in the blender and you could just drink it with a straw?????

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  18. Ouchie, ouchie, mega ouchi, Miss Stella. We bet that must be so sore. But Mom says the tongue usually heals quickly. Let's just hope the antibiotics work so you don't get an infection. Good thing Mum rammed that torch down your throat:)

  19. Oh, Stella...hope you are feeling better. You were such an angel through the whole ordeal, your Mum should have extra special treats for you when you are better!

    Tail Wuggles, Rubie xxx

  21. OUCH!! Oh Stella, that sounds painful. Glad you are OK! I think you deserve some special treats ...maybe tomorrow once you are feeling a little better.

    Your pal, Pip

  22. Oh Stella you silly girl, thank goodness you did not swallow it. Yeah we think special treats are in order when your feeling better. Congrats on making it on to 6th grade, your the sweetest ever to stay with Rory, he needs his big sister. He's a little shy by himself isn't he.

    The silvers and more

  23. Oh sear Stella! I sure hope your tongue heals up quickly so your Momma doesn't starve you anymore. That was kind of a silly thing to do playing with that tack and hopefully you've learned your lesson. How wonderful that you made it to the 6th grade and what a great sister you are staying back with Rory. That is pure love my friend! :)

  24. OWWIE!!!
    Sure hope you're doing better today, Stella!

  25. Aw, Stella, you can't just eat everything! Hope you don't starve before Mum lets you eat again.

    xoxo Marjie

  26. Ouhie little Stellie! Big healing slobbers for you!

    Hope Rory doesn't make too much fun of you, heheh ;)


  27. Ouchie!!!! Hope you are doing better soon! Golly - that cannot have felt good at all. Poor doggie! :( Glad your mom jumped into action as soon as she realized something was wrong - she is a good doobee! :)

  28. OMD! We are sending White Dog healing energies that your tongue gets back to normal quickly, Stella! Please do NOT chew on weird things that do not smell like is never a good plan! Moms are the best.

  29. Ouch! Hope you are feeling better:)

  30. Stella,

    We is so very happy dat you is ok now, but we is still sendin' boxer puppy prayers to you to helps you heal faster.

    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae and Max

  31. Yikes, Stella! Hope you're better now and your tongue has healed. Tongues are pretty resilient. When Jed was a young pup, he was part goat. He'd eat anything: metal, rocks, tree nuts, leaves he jumped up to pull off the trees. He got mama's box of sewing pins off the living room table and mama was terrified he'd eaten them. Not sure if he did, but fortunately no harm was done, no organs were pierced. Anyhow, hope you won't do anything like that again. Sounds like Rory was a sympathetic comfort during your suffering.

  32. Oh no, just seeing this now - oh Stella, darling, I hope you are feeling much better after your ordeal!

    And I just know your Momma has fed you by now but we surely can appreciate the trauma of not being fed the regular assortment of foodie stuffs that are supposed to be server the in the puppy direction.

  33. This is my first time i visit here. I found so many entertaining stuff in your blog, especially its discussion. From the tons of comments on your articles, I guess I am not the only one having all the leisure here! Keep up the good work. I have been meaning to write something like this on my website and you have given me an idea. Judi Poker Online
