The Nose Conspiracy

First let me say the stents they put in my nose are out! Yay! I didn't realize just how big those suckers were. Ugh!  Okay enough of that.  Since my nose could be up to six months until it is completely healed I may as well share the story of how I got here. Last September I had a bad cold.....

"Oh, geez!  Here we go!"

......and one day when I was walking into the living room and Freddie was finally sleeping and not being a bugger was fast asleep on the couch, I looked at him and you know those times when they look so sweet and innocent when they're sleeping, kind of like the picture below, and you just want to snuggle them.  I smiled and bent down to give him a kiss on the head.......

 and apparently scared the crap out of him.  He jumped up and whacked me in the nose.


Well, my nose hurt for a few weeks but I thought I'd probably just bruised it.  I had a hard time breathing through it, but I figured that was just my cold.

Turns out my cartilage was twisted from the trauma.  So after trying different medications the last option was surgery to remove some cartilage and turbinate from one side of my nose.

"And you wonder where I get my dramatics! Don't let the door hit ya on the way out when your done your story Momma."

Since I haven't been able to be on the computer much I've been trying to get some crocheting done. Miss Mindy's Momma, Gloria over at Hood's Happenings, sent me this wonderful crochet hook. She molds and bakes the handles right on to make them easier on your hands for crocheting.  I just love it!!  She also sent me instructions so I can do my own handles. How cool is that!

I made my first pair of crocheted slippers.

They went a lot faster than knit ones for me and I think they turned out pretty good. So that is the whole nose story.  I can already breath better through it.  Once the swelling is gone it should be amazing!

"I really do feel bad Momma. Oh, but  before you go........"

"Can you pass me another bon bon!"

Seeing Goose's wonderful uplifting post today has inspired me to join the "See Beautiful" blog hop that is the second Friday of every month.


  1. Glad the stents are out. They are bigger than you think, that is true. While I did not cause my MOM's nose problems I did knock a tooth out of her mouth. You peeps really should not sneak up on us to give us a kiss. Keep getting better Freddie's momma. And Fred make sure you give her a kiss on the nose, it will heal faster.

  2. Phew, thank goodness that you are feeling better now and able to breathe (you know, one of those pesky required for living things! ;-P)! I might be small, but Domeek says that I'm going to give her a concussion one day, cause I love to head bang! Freddie has the funniest "I couldn't care a less" expressions! :-D

  3. Freddie...your many, many poses on the couch just crack us up!!! Our mom also crochets (only blankets though, she hasn't figured out how to move beyond this basic stage) and thinks that crochet handle your mom got is very cool, not to mention those slippers she made - they look like they'll keep her feet nice and toasty this winter.

    You and Gloria must have a grrrreat weekend!
    Wally & Sammy

  4. Yikes. Freak accidents like that are weird. I had my car keys in my hand the other day and reached up to scratch my nose. The key was pointing upwards and I ended it up jamming up my nose. It started bleeding everywhere. Go figure.

  5. Yay for feeling better and breathing and smelling yummy foods!Glad you're feeling better. Also, Freddie is such a handsome model! I had to shield little Olive's eyes for a few of those! ;)

  6. What a terrible thing! I feel so bad for you...but hope that this has you all healed up.

  7. Thanks for the pupdate we wondered why you needed the surgery. Ooch! Sending love and wishing you a speedy recovery. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  8. Crikey, I didn't know that it was Fred who had bashed you in the nose - isn't that typical of our 'beloved pets', LOL. Hope your poor nose is feeling a bit better, it must have been a horrible experience.
    Your slippers are wonderful, I just made a pair for hubby and me the other week, he has worn them to the extent there are holes in them now!

  9. LOL!!!! wow kissing dogs is dangerous!!!!!!! im glad i dont let stormy touch my face now LOL!!! sorry shouldnt laugh :) i certainly wont be doing any dog snogging in the future either since it has a chance to bust your nose or knock your teeth out :O
    i would die if you put a pic of you with your nose stents on, sounds fun, for me not you obviously :)

    Love Ya!

    Charlene and Stormy

  10. Wow, those stents are not fun! Happy you are mending, It's hard to think that little chap could do so much damage. Good for security, he will protect you even if he is half a sleep!

  11. So glad you're getting better now! Those pictures of Fred really made us laugh too :-) Have a good weekend - woofs and licks from Magic xx

  12. Oh my goodness Norbert jumped on me once while doing zoomies and game me a bloody nose and we thought that was bad! Sheesh. WE are so glad you are better though

    urban hounds

  13. Dog related nose injury! Wow! I guess it is a reminder you never know how you will get hurt. Hope to heals soon. Have a great day! Lee and Phod

  14. OUCH! WOW! Amazing dog story :-0 but told so well! lol I'm glad you're feeling better! I can't remember getting hurt like that by the dogs, but must admit the horses have whacked me in the face and broken my glasses more times than I can count.

  15. I have smacked heads with mom a few times and she has gotten a bump but I will have to be extra careful not to smack her in the nose! Mom and I just love thata first pic in this post - so cooll the way he is just hanging out!

  16. Oh the poor nose. Glad it's on the mend!

    Peeps should really learn a lesson from this. DO NOT SNEAK UP ON US WHEN WE'RE SLEEPING! GRRRRRRRRR!

  17. Oh dear, I think I'd better stop sneaking up to Eva and planting a kiss on her.

    So glad that you are feeling better and can breath properly now.

    Those pictures of the two babies really cracked me up. They are so cute!

  18. So glad you are beginning to feel better. I had no idea that is how you messed up your nose. I can see Freddie feels horrible about it. BOL Sniffs, The HoundDogs

  19. Why am I not surprised by the nose story?
    Very nice slippers, and beautiful hook

  20. Ouchie! Glad to hear the nose is getting better! Also glad you are enjoying the hook! Nice slippers!!!

  21. Oh man, that sounds painful. My Vickie breaths through her nose when she sleeps so if I ever did that to her, she would never sleep and oh that would be tragic for all of us.
    glad your snooter is feeling better.

  22. Heck, I didn't knows you had thingies stuck in your nose. I hopes you feel betters. But I does has to agrees withs da whole sneakin' up to gives kissies...even though my mum wouldn't be ables to resist Freddie eithers.
    I seen them hooks Gloria makes and they is way too cool...but my mum don't crochet...sigh.


  23. Your poor nose!!!! Ouch! I hope you are feeling better.

  24. I don't mean to be laughing at your expense (but since you are feeling better I WILL lol!!)

    Freddie telling you that that is where he gets his "dramatics" and the "bon-bons" lol!!!

    I soooo wish I could crochet (or knit) I am HOPELESS with yarn or thread!

  25. That was hilarious, Freddy looks like he MIGHT feel bad. Maybe. BOL

  26. We are so glad that your Sniffer is Better!! Those slippers look grrrreat.

  27. This story made me giggle. But I am glad you're ok and healing.

    You guys have a great weekend! Try not to get in too much trouble this weekend Freddie. :P

  28. Woof! Woof! Oh Freddie, Golden LAUGHS. Happy This Moment See Beautiful Friday. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  29. And the doctors were probably like...Sure, sure, your Bassett did this, uh-huh!

    What a freak thing to have happen! But totally believable because I've had dogs bonk me when I've bent over to say hi. They have incredibly hard heads and it hurts!

    Hope you feel 100% ASAP!

  30. Bahaha...oh Fred! Your poses are definitely unique and all your own! I LOVE those slippers...they're so comfy and that purple is beautiful :) I'm glad your nose is getting better and I hope Freddie does a lot of sucking up for bonking it in the first place hehe

  31. Oh I've done that, been head butted in the nose, not to that extent Thank God, you must of been in agony. Love those pictures :) Those slippers look fab, I'll have some in pink please :) xx00xx

    Mollie and Alfie

  32. Ouch!!!! Glad they're out

  33. Wow, that must have been some head bump! I've been whacked in the nose by my dogs too and it does hurt! I can't imagine the pain that one caused! Ouch!

    Love those slippers! Perfect timing on finishing them with the cold weather getting ready to come through!

  34. SHE once got two black eyes when a helpful scottie tried to jump into the car....but it didn't require surgery! Hope it continues to heal. And remember not to kiss cute sleeping dogs.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  35. OMD!! Oh, you poor things! Tubes up your noses?? Yuks. Wells, I'm glad they're outs now! Hope your heal real fast, and remember not to sneak up on sleepin' doggies!
    Those slippers your Moms made are FABulous! I'll take some in red and pinks. BOL


  36. Oh Freddie, you hurt your mommy's snout? We know you did not mean it though. And that is a very nice looking slipper too!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  37. Glad things are getting better for you!

  38. I'm glad you're on the road to a full recovery. Just remember to stop and smell the roses.

  39. Oh goodness, that is some story! We are glad too that your stents are out. That alone must make you feel much better. We will keep our paws crossed still for continued healing.

    Lily Belle & Muffin

  40. Glad those things are out of your nose. They blame us for everything, huh
    Benny & Lily

  41. Oh wow that is quite a tale. Sounds like something that would happen to me. When Thunder was little he would always jump just as I was bending down to put a collar and lead on him. I got clunked good a few times, but nothing like what happened to you. Glad you are feeling better. The slippers turned out great!

  42. Hope your nose is on the mend, BassetMomma. We have had everything from broken glasses to dental injuries from dog heads flying upward....Yikes!

    Wyatt's mom

  43. Ouch! Leroy did that to me once and I heard the crack when his head hit my nose. My nose shifted a bit but I never had any internal issues! Guess he hit just the right way! Hope you feel better soon!

  44. I'm so glad you got your cute nose all fixed. :) I promise you if I had a bon bon I would give it to you! You are so adorable! Love the way you tell a story and all our photos!
    Have a fun weekend!

  45. Ouch! That sounds very painful. We hope your nose is soon all mended.

    Catching up.

  46. Freddie's photos and your interpretation of his thoughts are hilarious! Glad you are on the mend and will soon breathe again easily - oh, and I will be on the look out for bon bon's for the Fredster.

  47. Oh Bassett Momma, we are sorry about your nose, but we LOVED this post. It gave us many laughs (with you, not at you). The photos are pure delight. NO worries, and love, Carol (and Stella and Rory)

  48. Bon Bons, bacon & Cheese I say!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  49. That is quite a story - the "nose story". Your photos of Freddie with his commentary made it really funny!

    One time, I leaned down to kiss K just as she jumped upward to kiss me. The result was a chipped front tooth for me. You just can't hold it against such cute and lovable dogs as Freddie and K, can you?

    I'm glad that you're finally getting better!

  50. Hey Bassetmomma,

    You are hilarious!! You really had me chuckling with your story, I even relayed to Dad!! Freddie's captions were so funny! Makes me realize how lucky Mum was when I whacked her on the nose with my head a few months ago - phew!!

    I have a question, are those slippers for Freddie? Tee Hee

    Wags to all,

    Your pal Snoopy :)

  51. Oh Momma, sorry about your Schnoz! Freddy you are a DELIGHT!


  52. Ow, that's awful, so glad you're feeling better! Love the pictures of Freddie with the captions. The first time I broke my nose was when I tried to step over my parents' dog and she stood up, tripping me so I smashed my face on the cement step.

    My grandmother used to make slippers like that every year for us for Christmas. She would sew suede soles on them so they would last through the year. They were great until the year she used smooth red vinyl, which turned them into slick Slippers of Death! I think we all fell down the stairs a few times that year.

  53. OUCHIES!!! How awful! Poor Momma! You should give her a LOT of extra cuddle time to help her feel better.

    Those slippers look great! Nice and soft and comfy. Perfect for the winter! You sure are talented!

    I gotta say, those are some ADORABLE pictures! :D

  54. Oh, OW! I saw that coming when you mentioned a) your nose and b) the sweetly sleeping dog. ;) I suspect we have all been bonked in the nose by our lovely canines. Sorry you had to be the over-achiever and actually do real damage.

    Love those little slippers. (And that first picture of Freddie is to die for. ;)

  55. Mrs. Bassetmomma, sending you a speedee recovereee! yikes Mr. Freddie did that?? wowsers! well, he's got timing that's fer sure. hope you is breathin' bettah these days. --Worm
