M is for Maildog

Since hubby is a mail carrier, it seemed like the most appropriate Halloween costume would be the same for the dogs. Unfortunately, size XL is only for dogs up to 50 pounds. Bandit did not get a costume....... yet. So M is for Trixie the Maildog. I know, I know, it's not Monday. I'm late again.
Si .... his face drained for two days. I threw away three towels from all the blood and pus that came from his poor face. I really didn't think he'd make it. The side of his face is a bloody scab - his one eye is scratched pretty bad - and one of his legs limps. He is still alive and seems to like living on the kitchen table. (It's near the food dish and up high enough away from Bandit.) I pick him up and take him outside in the backyard to do his "thing." It is so amazing to me that Si, being almost 18, is "ok" (for now).
Thank you, all for your concern and kind words. I thought you might want to know how Si is doing.

Haven't heard from you in a long time, so I decided to come over and check on Bandit. Learned about how the other animals are doing. Glad Si is doing OK.

So happy to hear Si is hanging tough! At eighteen! We could learn something from this.

Love the mail carrier costume! =) Too bad Bandit is out of luck on the costumes... our Scottie SHOULD be able to wear them... but, she needs a Queen size. =)

I love that costume! I have two toy poodles, but my husband says NO COSTUMES! He's no fun! :) I came over to visit from Deb's.

Oh shoot Deedee! Trixie is adorable!

I am glad Si is healing. It sounds like he has really been through it. He is certainly a tough kitty.
