Mommy's Knight In Shining Fur

Tuesday morning my Grandma Shirley called my Mommy to tell her that she(Grandma Shirley) had appendicitis & had to have emergency surgery & told my Mommy to please come to the hospital just in case. My Mommy did not know what appendicitis was & was horrified at the thought of her Mommy having to have emergency surgery, & the, "just in case" comment set her over the edge. She burst into tears & tried to called her Daddy as instructed by her Mommy, I however did not stand by & let my Mommy cry! I was not sure who was making her cry but I was going to find out! I searched the house from top to bottom trying to find the culprit! I looked in the bathroom, barking as loud as I could telling whoever it was that made my Mommy cry to come out so I could give them a good whooping! I looked under the bed, and in the kitchen! I ran as fast as I could, still barking but continuously checking on my Mommy! Alas I could not find the jerk who hurt my Mommy. I came back to the bedroom just as my Mommy collapsed to the floor in uncontrollable sobs, I covered her in kisses ignoring her pushes. After what seemed like forever, my Daddy had arrived to take my Mommy to the hospital and I knew I needed to go to my bed. My Mommy didn't need to tell me I went, after I gave her one last kiss, she had somewhat stopped crying & told me I was her knight in shining fur.

Eduardo's Mommy Here: My Mom is home now & doing fine. I had never seen Eduardo behave the way he did that day. He barked louder than ever & was running from corner to corner of the apartment. When I did fall(I am quite ashamed of it) he came out of nowhere & kissed my face & even though I tried to push him away he returned. When my husband came home to take me to the hospital, I didn't have to tell Eduardo to go to his bed he just went & that has never happened! It seemed like he was looking for someone! He is my knight in shining fur! As you can see from the photo above his fur is very shiny!

OMG! You're okay, right?

ANd yes...Eduardo is TOTALLY a night in shining fur!

Eduardo is so in tune with you. When you were so upset, not being wise in the way of phones-he rightly looked to see if an intruder had made his way into your house and upset you. He is a special boy-he has a knowing of you-hmm -a heart dog we think. That knowing does not come along everyday. Cherish it.
Sunny&Scooter&Jamie(remember the post re Tess-heart dog? Eduardo definitley is what I was talking about in the "knowing")

Mack said...

Wow - that is an amazing story!

Lilly is just like that with my mom. She can't stand to see momma cry - it upsets her so!

She even knows when Mom isn't feeling good.

SO glad your gwandma is feeling better.

Sugars to all,

You did really good there Eduardo. You rock. I hope your Mom and Dad give you oodles of cuddles for doing such a good job. And A few cookies wouldn't hurt either! :-) Glad to hear everyone is ok.

I am glad that your mom's mother will be okay.

These wonderful fur buddies that we have never cease to amaze me. They know so much about how we feel and try to make us better. We can not ask for better friends.

G'day Eduardo

Hey us dogs know what is going on all the time don't we. Sometimes we just pretend not to know! ;-)

I am happy to know that your mum's mum is going to be okay.

I think you should be called Sir Eduardo from now on!

Eduardo, you are shiny. Do your cheese biscuits make you shiny? Maybe I should get Mom to make me some so my coat can be as shiny as yours :) XOXO Peanut

The Devil Dog said...

Well, of course Eduardo is your knight in shining fur. He is, after all, my boyfriend. As for the appendicitis, mom had hers out when she was 25. Her mom had hers out and her mom's mom had hers out. And they say it is not hereditary, right!
Try not to make Grandma Shirley laugh, cuz that's when it will hurt.


Lux said...

Eduardo, you did good to comfort your mommy! I'm so glad everything turned out okay ...

Simba said...

Your Mummy is so lucky to have you. My Mummy had appendicitis earlier this year, it was very scary, but was back home and better again in no time at all.

Eduardo, you are truly a herodoggy. We are so glad your grammy will be okay. Give your mommy kisses from her puggy friends in Texas.

I hope everyone is doing alright! Glad they caught the appendicitis on time!
Eduardo is a special doggy and very intune to you. I have seen it with one of my cats, he is snuggly when we are sick and he isn't a snuggly cat. Indy as well, she comes and cuddles when I cry. :)

Deetz said...

Chef said...

Eduardo, I just love knowing you did that for your mom. You are absolutely a very good and loving boy. Our families take care of us and when we have to, we try to take care of them too, right?

We're so glad you grandma is feeling better.


Agatha and Archie said...

You are a knight in shining armor!! And we are so glad your Grandma is OK!! Love and kisses A+A

The Girl said...

Eduardo, you were just the perfect doggy for your Mom today!

Eduardo's Mom - Don't feel bad about falling. If The Girl's mom called with news like that, The Girl would absolutely break down. I would lick and comfort her just like Eduardo did. Like Sunny, Scooter and Jamie said, the connection you have is rare. You will be there for each other in ways that you can only imagine.

Brown dog kisses,
Dannan and The Girl

Pee Ess We are glad that Grandma is all right!

Preston said...

Glad to hear that your Grandma is doing fine now. Eduardo, you are an amazing puggle. I am proud to be your friend!

Hugs, kisses, licks and wags!
(I gave my mommy kisses too when she felt on the floor (and screamed out loud) becuase she stepped on my spiky nylabone...)
