As some of you might know, I went to the dentist this morning to have my teeth cleaned and some x-rays taken of my right front leg that had me limping on and off for the past week and a half. When mom called to check on me this afternoon, they told her I had to have 4 teeth removed and they took 6 x-rays of my leg. (They said I was worked on for like 2-1/2 hours! OMD!) Well, mom picked me up and they gave her the rundown on what I can and can't eat and gave me some pain medicine and told me to continue with the anti-inflammatory pills they gave me last week for my leg. One thing they DIDN'T tell mom was that there would be a BIG difference from the estimate of $580 that they gave her this morning. As a matter of fact it was a $600 BIG difference! When she went to pay the bill she almost passed out when it was $1100! OMD! OMD! OMD! ***thud*** (poor, poor mama) :o(
When we got home mom gave me some canned dog food (I was starvin' since I couldn't eat anything after 10 last night and had been gone all day from home and so it was over 24 hours since I had eaten) and one of my pain pills and I've just been lying on the couch moaning and groaning. I don't know which hurts worse my mouth or my leg where they probably twisted and turned it all around to get the x-rays they wanted. The x-rays showed nothing (mom was worried about bone cancer which her first Weimar, Dawn, had after she had been limping on her front leg for a few days), but I'm still limping so we're at a loss as to what's wrong with it.
Hopefully I'll be feelin' better in the morning and won't be moaning anymore. (Mom would have thought the pain pill would have kicked in by now.)
Oh Doo sweetie *hugs* we will send lots of love and POP your way to feel all better real soon. Love you sweetie, take care *hugs* we will be thinking of you!
Oh, no! I r so sowwy tu heer dis, Doo! I hope yu will be feewin' bedder nexx day ♥ Hope yur Mom r ok, tu :)
Thanks Abby and Zaidie. Poor mama she's been lovin' on me and even laid on the floor while I slept awhile. She feels helpless with me moaning and groaning. She's thinking about sleeping on the couch tonight cause its like 3 feet for me to jump on the bed. Not too bad jumping up, painful jumping down. :o( If mom sleeps on the couch, then me and Austin will sleep on the other one and its only like a foot or so from the floor. We'll play it all by ear. But that's what she's thinking of doing until my leg gets better.
Thanks for all the POP.
DOO!!!!!!!!!! I didn't know you weren't feeling good!!!! Oh poor DOO!!!! So much POP for you, my friend!!
Thanks Fizzy! I appreciate all the POP I can get. :o)
OMD! Doo you poor pup! We had no idea you wasn't feeling good. Is you feeling a little better now?
No Ebby, I'm really not. Mom just gave me a bit more dog food cause the vet said small, soft meals for a few days. I'm not moaning as much, but I'm limping more that I have been. Mom just took the bandage they had on my leg off (the stretchy kind they use to hold the cotton ball where the IV was). It wasn't helping, nor hurting it, she just thought it was bothering me (you know how us pupses try to take things off that our pawrents put on us).
Thanks Ebby for the whole turkey you sent me (I get it all too, cause we KNOW Mr. Austin hates human food.) BOL
Thanks Abby and Fizzy for the POP and thanks Z-pup for the flowers and heart. I LOVE flowers.
OMD! You poor pup! I will pawyer that soon all this will be but a vague memory.
I hope you will feel a lot better furry soon.

So sorry to hear about all this pain and trouble you are having. Hope that you are feeling much better soon, back on all fours and enjoying eating whatever you want!
Good Morning everyone...well we didn't sleep on the couches last night. Mom went to get ready for bed and when she came back into the living room, I had already gone and gotten in the bed. I slept pretty good. No more moaning and groaning this morning. Had my pills with my dog food, and I'm still limping some. Other than that, there's not much change. Mom's got to go out later to get me more dog food so we'll see how today progresses. Thanks everybody for all the POP and get well wishes. You pupses are the best!
Doo, that's some ordeal to go through. I know being home with Austin and getting lots of love from Mom will help.
We're glad that the x-rays were good. Get some rest. We're sending big hugs and POTP.
Doo, I hope you feel better soon. Hopefully those x-rays will show something, as there must be a reason for your limping. Hugs!
Ohhhhhhhhhhh my beautiful girl :'(

Awww Doo we are sending a ton of POTP your way. We so hope you are feeling better real soon. My Mom also knows how you Mom felt when she got the bill. That's the price for loving us I guess. Tell her not to worry it always works out in the end. Take it easy my friend and we will be praying for you.

I Hope this doesn't ruin your Thanksgiving????? hugs and kisses, Mazy and the Ponderosa Pack
Well, here's an update on me and my pain. I'm still limping sometimes alot, some times not so much. The vet office called today to see how I was doing. Mom told them I was still limping and was almost out of my anti-inflammatory pills, so she went this afternoon and picked me up some more. They said its probably just a soft tissue strain and will take awhile to heal, so they also wanted to make sure I wasn't doing a lot of activity, and mom told thim I'm pretty much staying on the couch resting. She got me some super tasty can dog food yesterday which makes all my meds go down real easy. :o)
Austin and I both want to wish all of our pals a very Happy Thanksgiving and thanks so much for all my POP and my get well wishes. We love you all and we're thankful for your friendships. :o)
I sure hope that your leg will get better fast so you can romp and run with strength again.
And your mouth, I think it must be staring to feel a lot better already?!
Hang in there!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your furmily!
Aw, Doo, I'm sorry to hear you're not feeling well. I had two surgeries in the past couple of months, so I know how it feels after. The second time, it took me three or four days to feel like mywoof again. I know your leg will feel better real soon, and I hope you get a some special treats fur Thanksgiving.
We'll be praying for you to get better soon, Doo.
Hope your mom feels better from the shock of
seeing that bill!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
~Strider & family~
