This post is about Doggie. Mallory's beloved Doggie had surgery today. We did schedule surgery for my #1 boy for July 22, but I'll talk about that in another post...
Doggie has had a broken nose for months now. Mallory had the audacity to chew off his nose several months ago and immediately shunned him for being nose-less, even though it was to her own doing. I was thinking it would be an opportune time to wean her away from this beloved lovey of hers, but Patrick wanted to teach her a lesson through this: that even though Doggie was hurt and was missing a nose, he was still the same Doggie. We shouldn't loose our love for something special just because they look different.
There's a reason why I married my husband...
Anyway, we put a band-aid over his nose and it worked beautifully. He's had Hello Kitty band-aids, Cars band-aids and more recently, Peanuts band-aids.
When Doggie gets a bath, the band-aid comes off, revealing his imperfection. She doesn't like seeing him without a nose, so the band-aid NEEDS to be there or she gets very distraught. Doggie with a band-aid is beloved. Doggie without a band-aid is not.
My mom is in town for a few days and has taken Mallory and Ethan out to run errands. I took advantage of Doggie's solace and decided to have surgery.
We'll see what Mallory thinks. I honestly have no clue what she'll think. Do you think she'll like it?
