Well, I'm getting ready to drop Shiloh off at the Vet's for his surgery today. Of course, there's always concern when a pup has surgery but I feel confident that all will go well and I'll soon be bringing home a very sleepy puppy dog.

I just stopped by at the Vets. They had just finished the surgery shortly before my arrival. Shiloh did great!!!! I saw the masses they removed. One was smaller (but still sizeable) and the other was really big. The really big one was the vascular one (the one filled with blood). Dr. even showed me as he cut into the both so I could see how the one was fatty and the other filled with blood.

Of course, I tried to be quiet but someone had opened the door to the recovery room and Shiloh heard by voice. Reluctantly, I went back. It was so good to see him. Oh my, my boy! He was up and so wanted out. Dr. decided to give him something to calm him down some so he could rest and I left.

I didn't see his back area, only that cute little face in the cone. But he looked wonderful. I'm so relieved this part is over. The doctor explained there might be some parts that come open just a little due to how much was removed and the limited amount of skin left but assured me it likely won't happen and its ok if it does. He said he put several layers of sutures and staples so he'll be ok.

I pick him up between 3-4.

After that I swung by the store and picked him up a wee little steak to enjoy with his dinner. Of course, we all need to celebrate some. Don't want to give him too much after surgery but a little will be ok I'm sure.

In the meantime, as I'm waiting through all this, the police show up at my house. It seems someone complained about the pups barking with another dog in the neighborhood (must be the new neighbors). He was pretty cool about it. I guess the neighbors don't realize it but I'm kind of thinking the barking sounded better than my now having to yell 'ELI SHUT UP' all the time. Wonder if they will call the police on me now? Oh well, my only concern right now is with Shiloh and getting him home and healed.

I'm sorry I didn't realise today was surgery day. I'm so happy all went well.

Darn new neighbors. frown

Hopefully they'll come around and become more a good part of the neighborhood soon.

Just a really quick update as I need to keep my eyes on Shiloh. He's home groovy I'm really going to have to keep an eye on him at all times right now. Since they had to take off so much, skin the area back there might come open some, I'm not to worry about it. He's got several layers of stitches and staples.

Its just such a relief to have him home. I also got some meds for sedation. I plan (right now) to keep him slightly sedated over the next couple of days. I'm just so glad this is over. Of course, I trust the Vet 100% but in the back of my mind I kept thinking 'but he is 11 years old'...

Better run, Nurse Mama is on duty!!!!

Rosa, thank you for the update. I am so glad the surgery went well and Shiloh seems to recover from the surgery quickly. I am not surprised that he heard your voice. Your babies are totally tuned into you. I think they probably could have put 3 steel doors in-between him and you and he still would have known you were there. smile.

May he continue to recover nicely and quickly. Too bad the neighbors decided to add to the stress already. There is always one in the neighborhood. Isn't there? In taking care of Shiloh, please don't forget to take also good care of yourself.

Well I gave him his dinner and he is now resting. smile I took a few pictures:





Its really swollen all over down there, but I'm sure that's to be expected. I'm just so happy to have him home and in my arms and care.

Shiloh is so much my rock. He's as solid and dependable as they come.

I'm not the least bit worried about the neighbors complaining to the Police about barking. I likely would have been more upset if I didn't have something more important on my mind. I did go over and visit with the other neighbor that the police went to today. We just don't have a clue as to who would have complained. There's really no one here during the day which is one reason I don't worry about Eli's barking. I was thinking it might be the new neighbor but I don't want to assume anything. Its just not worth it. Again, I'm just not worried about it right now, I have my boy to take care of.

Thanks again for all the support.
