My little dog - a heartbeat at my feet. ~Edith Wharton

My puppy's having surgery today. We just dropped her off at the vet to get spayed. They'll keep her overnight and i already miss her. Max once joked that our puppies were like my own little fan club. It's true, they follow me around everywhere. He said all they needed were little cameras. {cute}

I'm praying everything goes well. Earlier last week when i took Maverick for her check-up, Dr. Hope said something about a heart murmur I may want to see a specialist about later, as she gets older. You could see why I'm a little more worried about a "normal" procedure.

She's my puppy child, and anyone who has a pet knows what i mean.


I remember when she was this small!

update: she is out of surgery and still under meds, but fine! my little trooper. Anna you are absolutely right, she IS a Texas girl {wink} thank-you lovies for all your support & kind words and emails. i adore you all TREMENDOUSLY!!!! if all goes well, this puppy is coming home safely to Mommy for me. xoxo

Oh god I know exactly how you feel. I just picked up my baby from the vet (we were away this past weekend) & I always worry when we're not with her. I'm sure your pupper will be fine! :)

oh god I know how you feel. It really is scary when your pets are sick, its worse coz you can't communicate with them.

Farah said...

oh and dont worry about the surgery, I'm sure you'll be fine.

Cassie said...

Oh dear, my thoughts are with you today. It's terrible when you are so used to them around you all the time.
Sure the surgery will go well and fingers crossed for a speedy recovery. xx

I hope everything goes okay. Just because they aren't humans doesn't mean that animals are any less a part of our family! Flojo is definitely my baby...she just happens to have feathers!

Cynthia said...

Jenni said...

Annie Cristina said...

I know what you're going through! I'll keep your little one in my thoughs & prayers.

P.S.) I love that quote by Edith Wharton... Warms my heart. :)

Erin said...

Thinking of you and your little pup. xoxox

Fallon said...

Aww looks like shes smiling with you :) She'll be just fine and following you around before you know it! When my Akita Echo was a few months old and she was spayed, we were lucky enough to catch her drowsy antics on camera!

Risti Megan said...

Thinking lots of happy thoughts today for you and your puppy.

Bubby just got spayed the day before we moved almost 2 weeks ago...I wanted Tony to be the one to drop her off, but I ended up having to. I seriously cried when I had to drop her off. She was fine up until she got in the exam room and heard the other dogs crying and then she started to cry and then I started to cry. I blamed the pregnancy hormones but I KNEW I would be upset! (Hence why I wanted Tony to drop her off!) The vet said she would take longer to recover because she's older, but she was fine the next afternoon. We do have to get her checked out again soon cause she might have a UTI..They found crystals in her pee! Anyway, you're a good mommy and I'm sure she'll be fine...Bubby did really well! (Even though the vet thinks she's old!) We'll be sending positive thoughts your way!

erin elder said...

Flor Larios Art said...

She's very cute! Hope everything goes well.

J. said...

I know EXACTLY what you mean, because my youngest dogchild is going in to be neutered in a couple of weeks... and I'm already a nervous wreck! I almost broke down when they told me they would have to keep him overnight! :(
Keeping Maverick {and you!} in my prayers!

Lauryn said...

Aww, I hope your sweet little fuzz ball is relaxing and healing nicely! She's such a cutie :)

Krissa said...

Carolyn said...

Awww sweet thing!!! I'm so glad to hear everything went well, and she's doing fine. I SO know how you feel... my pup is my child! I'd do anything for her.

Elizabeth said...

Aww, when we took Baby in for that surgery she came back a changed doggie. But she's still my love :)

Jen said...

I'm so glad she is ok! Good luck with the licking. That was the hardest part for me. Not that my lil pup went into surgery, but that I had to tell him no licking or put that awful cone on his head!

Kimbirdy said...

Oh that is scary. I know how big a mess I am when my animal children have procedures. I'm so happy everything went well!

Rasha said...

HOpe things went well... he is so cute.

The Socialite said...

I'm so glad your little Texas-pup did amazing! ;) Glad to hear she's out of surgery and feeling better!

Our pets have such a way of touching our souls without having to speak and that's pretty special. :)

Elizabeth Marie said...

Awwww! I'm glad she's ok! That is so nerve racking!

Elizabeth Denise said...

i'm so glad your dog is okay. i totally know how you feel, my dog is my baby! i always say if anything happens to him i will be absolutely devastated. i read somewhere that people actually take pet's deaths harder than some people's deaths bc people have such close bonds with their pets and your pets give you unconditional love unlike many people. sorry i kind of went on a tangent, lol.

Carol {Everyday Delights} said...

Its so scary when pets are hurt or sick because you have no idea what they are thinking! What type of dog is she?

This Lovely City said...

Oh my goodness, I'm so glad your baby is ok! I know how scary that can be.. xoxox

Belen said...

AW! It definitely hits me harder when I read about other people's doggies now that I have Charlie. It's crazy how much I can miss her when I know she's at home waiting for me!

kateigh said...

im so happy to hear she is doing well! i hope she makes it back to your arms very very soon!

<3

Gabby said...

So glad she made it through just fine! She's lucky to have such a good mama!

Jayne said...

So glad that she's okay! What a cutie!

Post Grad Hair Cut said...

Oh good I am so happy she is okay. Our family dog is like another sister. She is so important!

Sandra said...

I'm so happy she's okay! She looks just like my Candy when she was a baby! Except Maverick stayed small while Candy kept growing! I'm so glad everything went okay!

Xoxo, sanders

Annie said...
