As soon as mom woke up and dressed, she grabbed me and ran for the car. I thought she was taking me out for breakfast, seeing as I didn't get any!!! But no, we went for a ride. When we arrived at the destination of her choice, we were at the vet's office!!! With only a sniff at the grass, she herded me inside where they apparently were waiting for me. After a hug and a kiss, mom left me!!!
What transpired next is a bit of a mystery since the doc used some anesthesia on me. But I came out with sparkly teeth, de-haired inner ears treated with medicine, a pedicure, and some stitches on my side. It turns out the non healing lump on my side was a benign type tumor that mom & vet decided needed to go. The most difficult part was that mom didn't pick me up until 5:30 at night!!! Apparently, the plan was to bring Winston in for his annual visit just before my pick-up time. But as it happens, they changed Winston's appointment to 4:30 pm, then Dr. Porte was running late. By the time they were ready for me, I was wide awake and starving! I whined all of the way home. But once I arrived and everyone sniffed me, I was finally given some food. Then some pain medicine and back to sleep.
I hope you learned mom to only take one of us in a time. No dog should have to put up with not eating for almost 24 hours!
