I read this the other day and got to say you're doing an amazing job with your pups. It's really hard training one and 'putting the others away'. I struggle with that all the time. But you're doing great. It can't be easy with all those distractions.
Thanks for following up. I've just been so stressed lately. Yes, Sasha got her physical on Thursday and we had a long talk about what happened, what her personality is like, everything having to do with Sasha. I wanted to make sure I was putting her needs first and not just over-reacting to what happened. We decided a gastroplexy is our best bet. I was concerned about recovery and he said it's basically like a spay. I had Eli tacked but I couldn't remember what the recovery was like, so we went over that.
He quoted $1300 which I thought was a fair price, so she's scheduled for surgery on August 10th. If there's something I can do now that can possibly save her life in the future, then I want to do it. I hate to put her through the extra surgery but I'm not going to rest well until its done. And at that cost, I might just save up and get Kody done as well. But that's something I'd have to talk to the vet about. I don't think he fits the mold as much as she does, he's very laid back.
Reminded me of one of my road trips with the three Amigos (Shiloh, Shoshi and Eli). We had stopped to check out a ghost town in Montana. I use to have a belt that went around my waist that held all three leashes and that's the way we walked.
Well we were checking out this old town when all the sudden bunnies appeared everywhere and the pups were off!!!! I remember thinking 'feet don't fail me now!' and I ran as fast as I could keep pace with the dogs. Thankfully, they turned a corner and I was able to grab the corner of the building and held on for dear life. Boy did they get a lecture for that one!
