Dog Surgery Update: Dolly and Franklin

Dolly and Franklin resting today after surgeries
Two of our kids had dental surgery yesterday, and Dolly (the Weimaraner) had two fatty lumps removed that come with age. Dolly and Franklin (the Dachshund) cam through surgery well, and were both very,very groggy when we picked them up last night.
  Both had to have one top molar removed, because they cracked or split from a nylabone. It happens when you get older, teeth get brittle. They're both 8 years old.
  Both are on antibiotics and painkillers, and enjoying rice and ground up turkey burger, tuna and chicken until their mouths heal.
  Dolly's two fatty lumps required about 8 stitches each and she's SO good, that she doesn't touch them. So, no "Elizabethan collar" is needed. How many dogs are that good? We're really fortunate that we raised such a good and patient dog in Dolly. Franklin and Dolly are both resting and recovering, and Sprite and Tyler both sniffed their mouths, now knowing that they had surgery there.

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.
