Back to the Vet Again...

I (Rob) worked at the office on Wednesday and had to leave the dogs at home. Sprite (the foster dog) was sedated, so I didn't think it would be a problem. It wouldn't have been, however another 2 stitches opened up so there was blood serum on his blanket and bed when I came home the second time (after work). This was not good... Apparently as his stitches heal, and his skin isn't as elastic (he's almost 14 after all) some of them have come loose. Of course, they seem to be happening every day. SIGH.

  SO, Wednesday night we called the Vet and took him back again! Because the staples held the other areas, Tom said on the way, "They need to staple him all up and make him look like a railroad track!" I agreed. It was the best way, and our Vet agreed. So, they numbed him up and stapled him. Hopefully, this will work. Poor little guy. After we got home and fed him, he was chock full of pain meds, powerful antibiotic, and tranquilizers. Eesh. We have a follow-up appointment on Saturday.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
