Doctor Jack to the rescue! 

In case you were wondering, the tall guy had to go to the vet on Thursday and they blew up part of the rock that is in his kidney.  He said he was asleep and it didn't even hurt...


We did not have a good day on Saturday.  Seems that no matter what he would do, it would still hurt.  He sat in the bathtub a lot and then walked and walked outside and tried to lie down, but it was hurting really bad.  That's me in the picture, asking him if there was anything I could do for him, but he really didn't want much to do with me on Saturday.

Fortunately, the doctor had given him some pills that seemed to help and he finally went to sleep and slept almost 7000 hours in a row.  At least it seemed that long to me.  One of the tall guy's friends is here watching me and feeding me and taking me out for our walks, so I'm just waiting until the tall guy feels better.

Update:  He said he is feeling much better today, but he's still not 100%.  So, hopefully we'll be back soon!


  1. OK Jack, normally we would call the ASPCA for tall guy ignoring you and not catering to your every whim. BUTT, kidney stones are very hurtful things so we gotta cut him some slack. BUTT, we think you should be logging all the treats and walkies you have not gotten so that when he is 100% he can pay you back for your patience.

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  2. We are sorry your Man is having these problems. Our Grammie has those problems so we know it can really hurt. Hope he feels better soon.

  3. My momma had one of those kidney rocks. Luckily for her, it finally passed but she says she was coo coo nutty from the pain (of course that was about 100 years ago before they had those exploding devices to break things up). Hope TG continues to feel better.


  4. Hang in there TG...thank goodness you have Jack there to take care of you!! Hope you feel better real soon!
    Dory, Jakey, Bilbo & Arty

  5. Dear Jack,

    I'm so sorry to hear this. Please let the tall guy know that we are all wishing him the best and hoping for a speedy recovery.

    Glad to hear you have a friend there to take good care of you until the tall guy is feeling better.....

    Your friend,

  6. Hope TG feels better soon.......hope his friend gives you tummy rubs & treats to help tide you over😃

  7. OH NO Jack TG has been sick and hurting we are so sorry. We can see in your face that you were very worried. We have heard Kidney rocks are must painful too. When you feel that bad it is best to sleep at least 6,999 hours.
    Lots of healing hugs to your TG
    Madi and Mom

  8. oh good grief jack.
    i feel as worried as you look!
    terrible things. those rocks. too jagged to be called stones.
    they should probly call them razor blades.
    hug the tall guy for me.
    you're a good buddy to have. keep him warm in those long naps. xo

  9. Doctor Jack - Thank heavens you are there to supervise and make sure he gets better !

  10. Oh dear - that sounds excruciating! Tell the TG that giving you extra treats will probably help him feel better.

  11. Take care of him Jack. Hope he feels better soon

  12. We're leaving now to come help. Leave the light on for us.

  13. Feel better soon, Tall Guy! It looks like Nurse Jack is on the job!
