A trying time........


Our sweet little doggie, Dusty, has had an operation on his tail. He had a cyst that had gotten bigger over the last six months. So, it was time to take it out. He was not happy about that! We had him at home for one week and he needed constant attention day and night. The poor baby would not eat, drink water, or go to the bathroom. He would sit and stare at the wall for hours. I called the vet and she said that we should bring him in. So, once she saw how he was acting, she suggested that he stay there. That was Friday morning and she said they would evaluate him that day and decide if he could come home. She called later and said they wanted to keep him for the weekend and that on Monday they would decide if he should come home or not. We are missing him so much! He is supposed to get the stitches out on Thursday and may have to stay until then. He wants to get at his tail so bad! He has to wear this collar to keep him from reaching it. So, we can't wait until he is all better and he can resume his normal life and we can do the same! I'll keep you posted on his condition.....
'Til next time, Love ya, Jean

Nice to meet you, sugar! Thank you for your visit and your comment and you are entered in the drawing.

Your blog is adorable. That sweet puppy looks well loved. My daughter's puppy had the collar on while he was neutered a few weeks ago. Darling dog, sweetpea.

I'm happy you watch my blog but if you hadn't left a comment I might never have found you, chick! Now that I have I'm adding you to my Google Reader and can keep up with ya...... ;-)

Hope all will be well soon. I am taking my MIL to get her stitches out on Thursday. She had a little thing cut off her forehead.
Good luck on the giveaways, there are some good ones.

Sorry to hear that Dusty has been having a rough time of it. How frustrating it must be for the poor little fellow not to be able to reach his tail. I hope he'll be able to come home today, then I'm sure he will be right as rain in no time.

Aww... poor Dusty. I know your heart is breaking without him. I spent 24 hours away from my dogs this weekend, and I could not WAIT to get back home to hugs and kisses. I hope Dusty gets better and comes home soon!
