The patient is home and resting

Rosie did just fine at her surgery today. I dropped her off at 8:15 am with authorization for flouride treatment, nail clipping, wrinkle and ear cleaning..and of course the spay. The vet called at 10:00 am and scared the CRAP out of me...only to ask if I wanted them to remove her last baby tooth...heck, when did the others fall out???? I gave the go ahead and a while later they called to say she had done just fine and was resting...they also mentioned that they wanted her to stay FOREVER. HAHA, yeah, right. So, I picked her up at 5:30pm with directions to keep her quiet and no food. Thankfully she did not decide to get sick on my pink blouse on the way home, although it was raining and she was freaking out over the windshield wipers???? The big sisters here don't know what to make of a quiet Rosie. They spent the last couple of hours sitting outside the crate like "guard" dogs. I'm sure she'll be happy to be eatting tomarrow! She must be starving!!!! She is still wobbly and sleepy...so we'll just let her rest and we'll all rest too!

To answer a couple of comment questions...

The collar with her name is one we got Rosie as a newborn. It was actually a girl's wristband. I bought the slip on "bling" letters. I found the larger collars at PetCo and when the pink collar got too small - moved them up. All three girls have these for dress-up!

Yes, the equipment is still in my driveway. No I did not move any hanging plants to it, although I did call and they apologized that they had not gotten over yet...heck, didn't they need their truck????? Hopefully, they will be here and gone tomarrow!

Yes, it is legal to use speakphone in NYS....but don't be holding the phone!!! HANDS FREE ONLY!!!!

Off to check on the patient.

Good luck AM..hope tonight is the night for the baby!

Eeek...just catching up after vacation this weekend. I'm happy to hear that Rosie's surgery went well. I hope her healing process it quick and easy. I found it difficult keeping Sadie calm...especially from skuttling around the house.

Sadie is 10 months old now and we are just noticing over the last few weeks that she's calmed down and become an oldie :o)...however this cold be related to her upset stomach that she's been battling.

OH I am so glad Rosie is OK and did great today! I was thinking about her (and you!) today. I bet she will eat like crazy tomorrow morning. Give her an extra scoop of food :) Hehe.
Thanks for answering my comment Q about the collar! I thought I was seeing things.. I was thinking No-It cant be the same one as the one she had as a pup.. But well, those are the same letters.. Thank Goodness you explained that! Makes sense. Same letter, new collar. I like those letters. I think I'll get some for Coco soon... I dont care if they are femine (Coco is a boy). LOL!!

Glad to here that baby Rosie is doing well. That's such a nice compliment that the vet's office wants to keep her. Glad that part of growing up is over with for her.

Glad she got through it ok! Alan called me last week when Moe had his surgery and scared me to death. Did he give you the tooth so the pug fairy can visit?
