The Pixie girl goes under the knife!

Seems that our little bundle of joy Pixie has eaten something bigger than her pyloric sphincter can handle and now is undergoing abdominal surgery to remove said object.

The house is prepped for her return, blankets on the floor, heat pack for her belly, and a small water bowl to give her small sips of water.  Being a nurse I get to administer her Inter muscle(IM) pain med injections tonight.  Ah the joy of being a doggie  owner.  Amazing how a dog can melt your heart and we can care so much for a little fur ball.

 But you know, I am glad we live in these times that a surgical procedure such as this is almost routine for the Vets.
We will keep you updated on her progress.
