    Sometimes they just can't tell you when they don't feel good, so best to err on the side of caution.

    Merry Christmas indeed--good thing you had all that extra money laying around . . .

    My old girl had surgery last week, and it's like we turned the clock back a few years. She's a lot perkier, happier, more active. I know all we did was buy her some time, but it is what it is when it comes to vet care, yes?

    Thanx.

    Update from the vet .. he's doing well, and it's stones with a touch of Lyme for good measure. On drugs to eliminate both. He'll be home today and I'll have to keep an eye on him over the weekend ( a blessing in disguise for me).

    They're putting together an estimate for surgery to remove them if needed.

    Running on 4 hours sleep, should be fun. Will update later.

    Hah !! $500, I wish !!

    So sorry to hear about Murph. He is such a cutie, can understand why the vet was captivated - Price you have to pay and all ;-) Maybe it was a good thing, tho, if you caught the Lyme's early...

    I hope things work out OK without surgery.

    I want to find a way to get a Social Security number for Jesse James and add him as a dependent on my taxes and health plan.

    Thanks, everyone.

    He's home, and very, very tired. I don't think he slept :) Need to consult with his regular vet. They're mentioning surgery to remove the stones.

    I'm just glad he's home for the moment.

    Loon, you are Karnac :)


    Just got a call from the vet, his stones can be dissolved as opposed to surgery:)


    "Stutivites", I think she said? I'm venturing into uncharted territory, here.


    He's fighting sleep at the moment, but venturing closer to the PE. I'll take a pic when he crashes. Shouldn't be long ;-)

    Poor little guy is just worn out from everything...just glad he is home with you Dix. If I see any more pic's of him, I'm gonna go out and get a dog :)
    To you from another family that is going to be in shock when my credit card bill comes in with the vet bill....our Cat (Mr. Bigglesworth) has been going through some kidney issues lately.
    Just glad your Murph is home with you where he belongs and wants to be.
    Have a merry xmas dix!

    Poor cutie--in the first picture, he looked asleep on his feet, and then it looks like he just fell over and went whomp!

    That's pretty much what happened, Snow.

    We're eating alittle & drinking water, plus going outside and "free flowing" :)

    He's a tough little dog, takes a lot to make him cry out. Only heard it once, when he was rough housing with Erin's dalmation and his butt ended up against the 800F degree glass of the PE. That was a loud one :)
