Good news — Sydney came through her surgery with flying colors! She did really well and is coming along nicely today. She hasn’t been nearly as groggy as I was expecting.
There were actually three growths removed from around her right eye, a total of 4 stitches. They shaved a small circle around her eye for the surgery. and she looks like she’s wearing a little monocle. So far she’s only rubbed it a bit and has tried to scratch a few times. No “lampshade” collar yet. But we brought one home from the vet’s — just in case. She’s not at all fond of us keeping such a close watch on her. She prefers a little privacy. But I’m not sure she can be trusted just yet.
She also had a broken tooth removed. She cracked it when she was a pup and the vet has been watching it for problems. She also got a good tooth cleaning at the same time.
Sydney is a tough little girl. She wasn’t home an hour yesterday when DH took her to the back door for a little potty break. As soon as the door opened, she charged out and treed a squirrel. DH and I gasped. But she just turned, did her business and trotted back in the house. Nothing keeps our girl from putting pesky squirrels in their proper place.
I just discovered that this is my 200th post. I can’t think of a better topic than good news about Miss Sydney 🙂
Thanks for the good thoughts sent our way. We appreciate our friends very much!!
