Poor Warthog...

injured animal photos ahead...
if you're squeamish about seeing
injured (stuffed) animals, 
you may want to bypass the photos.

Accidental injury!
By Tag E. Butt.
To his warthog.
 Not sure it's going to make it.
Lost a lot of stuffing.
Keeping a close eye on it
(& keeping it away from Tag)
until a surgery date opens.
Which may not come until after Christmas.

This may be the end of it for this warthog.
It is, after all, 3 years old...
which is very old for a much-loved toy.
One that has been carried around
both inside & outside,
chewed on,
cuddled with,
tossed up in the air
(by me for Tag to catch)
and has generally gotten 
a lot of use.

This warthog is Tag's
all-time fave toy.

It already had surgery once.
Remember this...last spring?

Well, this injury is much more serious.

It's a waiting game.

Just sayin'.

Casey's never last that long, I am lucky if it lasts a year.


Farm Girl said...

Sasha's last about 10 minutes, so that it is three years old, I really think he should go into surgery ASAP Doctor. Besides it's Christmas. :)
That is very cute.

Ahhhh saw the title and my immediate thought was "POor Tag" - I hope he's not too upset and hopefully the surgery will be successful!

You are too funny!

What surgeon are you using?? Good luck and poor Tag E Butt.

Poor Tag ~
I hope he can handle being warthog-less until the surgery takes place. I hope it is successful!
15 pound Loocie could destroy an animal like that in about 10 minutes ~ especially if there was a squeeker inside.
Pug hugs :)

Oh, poor Tag.
I hope Santa is able to contact the best reconstructive surgeon an dear little warthog is able to make a full recovery.

Oh dear ~ that is quite the laceration...hoping the surgeon can repair it without too big a scar...hugs to Tah as he waits for his pal to be on the mend ;o
