My best friend, having a rotten day
Dropped my dog off for ACL surgery (TPLO for those who know) this morning. What a horrible thing to have to do first thing in the morning. When I handed the leash off to the vet tech she literally had to drag him into the back to be prepped. I felt my heart stop watching him disappear around the corner. As she dragged him away, he pulled toward me and looked straight into my eyes the whole time as if to say "please help me", I swear I almost ran and snatched him back from her. That was the most draining experience I've had in a long time. Damn!
Good thing is, I just got the call, he went through surgery fine and is sleeping it off. Tomorrow we pick him up and then starts the dreaded, never ending, recovery and rehab period. Anyone who's gone through the rehab of TPLO knows it's a life changing event that never seems to end. We had to have TPLO surgery on our last dog about 10 years ago so the good thing is, I already know what to expect, the bad thing is, I already know what to expect.
Anyway, I'll still be glad to see him tomorrow, raw chicken leg and all.
