Zac gets a whole new life

Posted by Nerilie Watson on 13 June 2012 | 10 Comments


Just letting you all know I have changed my name to Zac and even if it is only three letters; I learned it all in one day! I absolutely love my new home and mum. We go to the park every day and play with all of the other dogs. I have made special friends with smudge & buddy the poodles, slash the big dog, indi the even bigger dog, a great dane, and my favourite girlfriend...... Pearla the staffy :-))


You wouldn't guess what a small world it is; i meet up with another Shenton boy Vector the brown husky x who also plays each day in the same park with his mum & dad! He is the greatest ball player in the whole world & I love to chase after him pretending I am half interested in the ball, but really, I just like running fast around the park with him and he looks out for me.

My mum tells me each day how lucky she is that I picked her out from all of the other humans. I only had to dig one hole before mum bought me more toys than I could imagine, that worked out really well so I didn't even have to pretend that I'm not toilet trained or chew anything.


Other than the park, I love the doggie spa, toe nail trimming i could pass on, but riding in the car is fun, watching tv, sleeping on mums bed and lounging on the couches all rate very high. Best of all, I just love being next to my mum and us having huge cuddles together.

p.s on Monday Dr Rebecca from Subi is going to fix my cherry eye for me, then I will be able to play in the sandpit again with Pearla, we will be able to chuck sand all about and have a huge time without making my eye get irritated!

Post-surgery update

Zac's surgery for his cherry eye went well yesterday. The Subi vet team were fantastic and i am so thankful to all of them that he got through with flying colours. One very anxious, well more like turned into a completely nutty nervous mummy spent half the day cleaning the house, cleaning anything, and doing any menial bit of housework i could to occupy myself while waiting for the phone call that he was ok.

Zac was admitted to the vet hospital with his toys and the parting words 'please do your best job for him, he is a very special little boy and if anything went wrong, do everything for him including....well, the words...... doggy life support' kind of blurted out as the tears of his usually tough lawyer mummy welled up a bit. Zac on the other hand was very interested in his toys, the cat and the display of dog food given he had been fasting since the previous night.


One very drugged up puppy was brought home in the afternoon with a lampshade on his head and carried up the stairs by his mummy and put on the bed, somehow my dressing gown found its way to be placed over him when he felt a little chilly, then a warmed up in the dryer rug really settled him. An interesting night was spent sleeping with my head half in his head gear to comfort him and me receiving a large amount of drugged out doggy kisses from him.

Swelling is down this morning in his eye area and he has eaten his normal breakfast and is also going to the toilet as normal. Getting the ointment into his eye is a challenge but I have had success applying the morning dose. Cross your fingers for two more applications today finding themselves in the right place, otherwise he will be back to the vets in a flash for extra hands to help putting it in.


He is having a sleep on the couch now, the effects of his super drugs have disappeared and he doesn't seem in pain.

Kind regards,

Angie Capper and lots of love from Zac.
