Grace from Texas here to tell you that I came through my surgery this week swimmingly.
I ended up having six teeth extracted along with the two lumps. The doctor says the lumps are benign nothing to worry about. And actually I think I may have been in more pain with those bad teeth then I was after my surgery!
I also got this really fashionable accessory around my neck (pictured ) when I left the vet. I heard I don’t have to wear it too often because I’m not bothering my stitches ( whatever those are) But sometimes they will put it on me and I think I’m going somewhere fun ….I run to the door and I wag my tail!
I will go back and have my stitches removed in 10 days. Then I will be starting my heartworm treatment. The doctor took x-rays and says that my heartworm doesn’t look too advanced because my heart and lungs look good. That is such a relief.
I am continuing my short walks and I am eating well and resting at my foster home. You know that resident dogs is still ignoring me. I just don’t know what I can do to get him to be my friend! The rest of the family is giving me a lot of TLC.
There is one perk about this surgery however, I’m getting to eat soft food like chicken and rice and boy is that tasty. I wasn’t quite sure what to make of the rice when I first tasted it so I was just pushing it around with my nose not sure if I was supposed
to eat it or not but I have come to really like it.
For now I am going to continue to get better and I will check back in next week. I hope there are some people following my blog …maybe one of them will open up their home and give me my forever place to live.
I don’t mean to come on strong but did I mention I have very good manners, and I walk well on a leash, and I settle down nicely, and I love to be petted…. they say I am a
These are just a few of the things I overhear my people saying about me. I will share more information in the weeks to come.
I hope everybody enjoys their week.

Grace here with an update….I had a very relaxing week. No pesky doctors, I just walked and played with my neighborhood friends.
I have some teeth that need to get extracted and I would like to have that done before my heartworm treatment begins. We will see what the doctor says about that.
