Oh 'tis the season...blah blah blah!! Yes, I'm a little scroogey this morning because my baby girl dog, Maisie had to have emergency surgery over the weekend. To try and make a long story short (and look out for the gross factor)...Maisie ate a tampon out of the bathroom trash on Saturday morning. I had heard this could be a very dangerous thing for a dog so we called our Vet. She had us bring Maisie in to take an x-ray and if it was in her stomach...would have her vomit it up. While they were looking at her x-ray...they saw an unidentified object of concern. They called us in...and we immediately knew what is was...a metal framing diamond (the kind you shoot in the back of a frame)!! Maisie had been down in my studio with me on Friday...and apparently had licked one up. It was lodged in her small intestine and we couldn't take the chance of perforation so it had to be surgically removed.
Maisie had to spend the night in the hospital...but we brought her home Sunday morning and she should make a full recovery. Poor baby though was just getting over kennel cough...and now she can't take a walk or do much for ten days. She's fine though and pretty much acts like nothing happened. "I" on the other hand am a wreck!! Oh well, at least it's over and she's back home with us. All is right in the world again.
By the way (and this will really date me!)...did you hear that Dan Fogelberg died over the weekend? He was one of my all time favorite singers and I probably listened to his album, "Home Free" about a million times while I was in college. Gonna have to get the CD now and reminisce. He was a great talent for soft, beautiful rock ballads.
Have a good Monday all...xox
