Countdown is on….

5 more days.. or sooner before my sweet pup becomes a Tripawd.

When I got home from work Monday night, I noticed that Franklin’s mass on his knee was larger.  I am so afraid that he is going to blow his knee before his surgery.  and if he does it at night time when the vet is not open, well.. that will be devastating!!

We are now on the emergency waiting list.. if there is a cancellation, we will be called in.  I advised the vet that I believed that my Frankie’s situation was more important than a spaying or neuturing!! lol  I mean come one.. this is my sweet fartin’ puppy here!!

Well, needless to say, the other vet at the hospital had a death in the family and has flown home for the services and funeral.. which of course, leaves them short for an extra pair of hands for operations.

So..   we are taking it easy with Frankie… not too much exercise… and no food after 6pm at night just in case we get that call at 8am to bring him in!

I’m getting nervous.. I’m starting to get scared..  I’m starting to worry now..  as all of you have gone through the same pattern I am sure.


anyhow.. I have a whole bunch of stuff to post here later.. things I’m thinking about.. worrying about.. curious about… but.. I don’t have too much time right now..

so.. I will bark atcha later then!!

I'm Canadian eh? living in Southwestern Ontario. My crew consists of my sweetie Fred, my son (25yrs) and my daughter (22yrs) as well as our 4 legged kids, Maggie (12yrs) and Wilson (1year). Franklin was my sweet boy who was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in September 2012. His leg was amputated on December 4, 2012. He was the cutest tripawd on this planet. He was happy every day. His tail was always wagging. Lung Mets took him from us on May 15, 2013. Rainbow bridge became a happier place with his arrival. We miss him terribly everyday. We lost our kitty in September 2012. Diesel, who was 18 1/2 years old when he passed at home, was (and still is) the Godfather. He is missed terribly by all. They are curled up together sleeping at the bridge under the stars, happy to be sleeping buddies again.
