Great news!

Emma had a successful surgery yesterday! Angie said the surgery took about 2 hours, and they were really glad it was over! Thanks for the prayers.

She will be having her 2nd (and hopefully last) surgery in 6-9 months. That surgery will repair the holes in her heart.

OK - I got 2 funny stories from the clinic yesterday. Get prepared to laugh.
  1. I was talking to a client with an overweight Yorkie. She insisted that this dog wouldn't eat without her encouraging him. In fact, the first years of his life, she fed him by hand FROM A TOOTHPICK.
  2. Dr. B was telling me of a client that brought in a DEAD STIFF cat, but she wanted to make sure it was dead before she buried it.

Who out there feeds their dog from a toothpick?

As for the dog and the toothpick, that is one spoiled dog. I would never ever feed mine with a toothpick...it's the dog bowl or nothing else.
Your vet stories amaze me :)

Wow, it would take a lot of toothpick bites to get a dog overweight! That would take some persistence and a lot of time!

(Should I not have said that? My word verification below says "reepenta.")
