|Franklin home after surgery in his tee-shirt|
Franklin, our senior pup is 12 years old and yesterday he had 1 day surgery to get two small growths removed and his teeth cleaned. He had a little skin tag under his chin, and he had a lump on his side. We're waiting for the biopsy on the lump, but he was in great spirits when we picked him up at the vet. He tail was wagging at super-speed.
FRANKLIN CHARMS THE OFFICE - Our vet, Family Veterinary Clinic in Gambrills,MD is fantastic. The entire staff from the front reception to the vet techs to the doctors are all great. In fact, we were told that when

Franklin shook off his anesthesia,he let them know he wanted to be held. So, Doctor Yates put Franklin in her lap and made her phone calls. How awesome is that? Two of the vet techs also made him a little support structure so he could watch Dr. Yates.

Our other kids, Dolly and Tyler knew he was gone and moped around all day. They were so excited when we brought him home, they actually paid NO attention to us! We're glad Franklin did well - no complications, no bad effects from the anesthesia and of course, a Dachshund-like hearty appetite!
