Cricket is a lucky little dog and is resting in her crate on a pile of pillows, high as a kite on doggie painkillers and getting lots of love and affection from all of us here at Casa NotScarlett. Sampson, while a little weirded out by her Frankendog shave & stitches combo at first, is now watchfully attending to her every whimper while standing guard next to her crate.
According to the vet, the surgery was "perfect." Once they got in, they found that Ms. Little Bit's hip socket was much worse off than they saw on the x-rays, and we were told it was a good thing they went in when they did.
Hooray for a pup at home and a household breathing sighs of relief. Thanks for all the kind words and positive thoughts. Once again, you guys are the best!
