A Vallie Update

Well I brought our baby home from the doctor and as you can see, she's pretty much down and out.  I gave her one of the pills he gave me and she was out like a light for about 3 hours.  The above picture is of her finally waking up but not moving.  Poor little thing is super sore.  The people at the store were super nice....which isn't surprising...and even found her a pink cone to put around her neck so she doesn't bother her stitches.  She has to wear this for 10 days till she gets them removed.
Above you can see her wound.  This is about 2 inches long and they shaved a circle about 5 inches all around it.  When I first saw her, it didn't look this bad but when I went back to get her, I was shocked.  I just hope she gets some sleep tonite and lets me sleep.....knowing her she'll be up bouncing all over the bed wanting to play.  Oh the love of a dog.......I wouldn't trade it for anything.
Blessings as always,
Barbara

Awww, poor sweet Vallie. Give her a gentle hug for me. I hope she is healing and will be back to normal soon.

MoonBeam said...

That is absolutely terrible. I feel so sad for her. I've never had a dog that required trimming, but I am shocked by this.

Hope all is back to normal very soon.

Hi Barbara, I meant to comment the other day but got sidetracked.... how is Vallie? I do hope she is getting better. I bet she does not want to go back to the doggy parlour!
Lots of hugs and kisses to sweet Vallie.
