Yippee had a bit of a “problem” recently.
We don’t know how it happened, no one saw a thing, but suddenly, Yippee was very “out there” and it would not go back “in there.”
This is how I found myself, at the request of the vet, rubbing lubricating jelly on Yip’s junk last week.
It seemed to help. I’m nothing if not thorough.
And then, what do you know? The next day it was out again, and not going back in. This time the vet suggested more lubrication. And when that didn’t work, she suggested sugar water.
This is how I found myself dabbing Yip’s special area with a cotton ball loaded with sugar water, and what do you know? It really did go in a bit, but not all the way. And Google told me if it stayed out too long, there could be serious damage. Like necrotic tissue, and gangrenous infection, and death. And since Seth and Yip are brothers, that’s not really an option. Yip can’t die.
So on Friday, after the sugar water only proved partially effective, the vet told us to come in. So before we left, I took Yip out to pee, and as he stepped his little paws in the freezing cold snow, what do you know? Shrinkage.
Seinfeld: You know about shrinkage don’t you?
Elaine: They shrink? I don’t know how guys walk around with those things.
We were told to “watch” him all weekend.
Yippee appears to be good as new.
I however, am still recovering.
Thank you for listening.
