S’up, peeps? Happy first day of June. Hope your weekend was extra swell. As you can see, Stormin’ Norman is feeling far more perky this week than last. The giant-sized donut collar arrived yesterday, and not a day too soon. I’m sure I heard the house give a collective sigh of relief. I know the back of my knees did. Norman actually gave a long extended butt wiggle when the dreaded cone came off. It’s good to see him happier and able to navigate without harming himself or his surroundings.
Here’s to having a ‘pawsome’ Monday. Stay cool…June seems to want to follow in May’s footsteps with toasty temps so rather than finding us poolside, we’ll be hanging out in the blissfully air-conditioned indoors. Besides we don’t have a pool.
Live, love, bark! 🐾

Awwww. Sweet Norman! So adorable! 🐾🐾🐾
He really is a big lovable softie.
I just love that!
Lulu: “I’d rather have a donut than a cone too, Norman!”
Chaplin: “Did some one say donut?”
Lulu: “Not that kind of donut, Chaplin.”
Yeah, trust me guys…this is nothing like Krispy Kreme.
Great! Thanks you for sharing such information!
Norman is looking stylish in his donut collar just like William Shakespeare did in his….
Two Brits…only one planning an exit from that kind of style. 😁
Norman is looking great!
He’s getting there. We just got back from the vet who removed his stitches but say some inflammation on the incision so he’ll have to take a course of antibiotics and remain on limited activity for another month.
He’ll get there. I’m glad the boy is on the road to recovery.
I wanted to let you know that King Arthur has white flour in stock online. May not last long if you are interested in white flour.
Thanks. Really appreciate your thinking of me.
Any time! 😀
HURRAH Norman!! That pillow collar lookss lotss more comfy that THE stew-pid plastick cone! Yore llok guud mee frend. Wee so happy yore feelin MUCH bettur.
An liek you wee will stay innside if it getss too *hot* out again….an wee nto have a pool eether 😉
Awe Norman, you will be healed up in no time.
We’ve got our paws crossed!
WoooooHoooooo!!!! OMD, I loved mine! I gots to say, sometimes I miss not having a pillow around my neck for my naps! BOL!!! I was so much happier with my donut than that nasty e-collar too! I am so happy you are healin’ well my furiend. Sendin’ lots of POTP and healin’ vibes and AireZens your way! And gives your Moms and your sis a kiss from me, k?
Thanks Ruby! You’re so right-these soft collars are soooo much more comfortable. 😍 Next up, removal of the stitches on Wednesday 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻
Great news Norman. Enjoy to butt wiggles.
I am so glad that Stormin Norman’is much better. I am not familiar with the soft collar but the word “soft” I like very much. Better on legs, knees and furniture. Benji like his ice-cream not a lot but he does get some each night/ Not from me, I might add – which only leaves one culprit. You know, now that restrictions on travel within the state are lifted, I find I don’t want to go anywhere. Stay Safe.
An excellent reason not to hang out poolside, Monika. I’m glad Norman is doing better.
Thanks John. I’m worse than the dogs when it comes to heat. They no doubt appreciate that ☺️
I’m sure they do. 😁
I do like that collar…almost as much as Norman and your knees! Glad he is doing well.
Thanks, Helen. The difference from last week is amazing! Next up…stitches getting removed on Wednesday.
Hooray for Norman and no more cone! You all need icecream cones to celebrate and stay cool! 🙂
Ha! Ice cream for me, I think Norman would prefer some nice big bones. 🦴🍖🍗
LOL! True! 🙂
Norman knows how to give you that same pitiful look that Xena gives me.
They all seem to know how to do that. 😁
We can see a very marked difference when Arty is coned, verses cone free! So happy to hear Norman is getting back to good!!
Those cones, while protecting, really depress pets. I’m glad he’s able to enjoy himself once again.
Soooo happy he is doing so much better! That is pawesome news! Keep it going Norman!
Thanks, he’s getting impatient with life as he knew it before the surgery. The boy is not so patient 😁
Norman, you are so squishable and lovable. And my pup, Finley, and I are happy you’re doing good! 🤍🐶💚
Thanks so much for the well wishes. Give Finley a nice ear rub from us! 💖
Finley just sighed with love 🤍🐶
We’re glad to hear Norman is doing so well. Our paws are crossed for continued healing.
Thank you. He’s so ready to get back to being the full fledged Stormin’ Norman.
Well done, N. You look happier and MUCH more comfortable in your fancy new collar. Keep smiling and healing and moving in the right direction.
Love and licks,
Thanks, Cupcake. The countdown has started-Wednesday is the day for the stitches to come out.
Yay! And how adorable is he?
Even though I’m ‘kinda’ biased, he is pretty cute if I do say so myself. 🐶
Norman is so totally adorable – Our temps are pretty consistently high also. Trying to find the right time in the AM to run out to the beach with Jaxson. Harley could care less about the sand and the surf. I want to go early before the rush of people. Stay safe my friend, stay sane!
You as well. We go first thing in the morning for our walk to avoid the heat. I am constantly floored at people who take their black dogs out running at noon-what the dog is wrong with people. Stay safe and keep smiling. Digital ear scritches for Jaxson and Harley.
I’m glad Norman is doing better. He’s a cutie pie too. Awww.
Have a fabulous day and week, my friend. Scritches to the pups. ♥
Thanks, Sandee. Couldn’t be happier with his progress. Happy first week of June.
Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.
Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. ♥
Your image inspired me. As always, thank you for hosting.
hugs and potp for the speediest recovers… and YAY for the donut collar…
Yes, it’s definitely a ‘fur-bulous’ creation. the kind of great idea where I keep asking myself, “why didn’t I think of that?” 😊
Great news for Noman!
Great news for Norman’s mom, too. 😉
Glad you got Norman something more comfortable. I hope your knees aren’t too bruised!
😊 It was that tender part behind the knee and the highest part of the shins that are a bit sore but they’ll will be fine in no time. Especially once the stitches are removed.
Color coordinated…. You are stylin’ Norm! Glad to see you are back on your paws.
Being a proper British bloke, Norman is about style. 😆
Look at the plush collar….lucky you, Norman!
Lucky all of us! He was getting to be a bull in a china shop. 🤣
Oh those cones!
Hard to have any depth perception with those silly things.
Norman you’re very handsome in your new “ruff” very Elizabethan!
He’s definitely enjoying this one-so much more comfy than the satellite dish cone.
Oh YESSSS! Score one for those wonderful soft collars – keeping Norman safe and keeping your knees from being assaulted at the same time. I know he (and you) are happy about that. Happy June!
Hugs, Pam and Teddy
He and I are both singing a chorus of “Hallelujah!”
