Home at last ...

What a day , what a weekend ...
Alice is now home at last , her surgery has gone well and she has internal stitches and a lampshade collar to stop her chewing at the wound , but at present she is spark out on the sofa as usual .....

It was awful at the vet hospital though ( apart from paying the £300 bill I mean .... worth every penny !!!) seeing two women in tears with just a collar in their hands and no pet , a puppy that had been run over , a very ripped open dog ( accident with a gate or some wire ) and a woman and a young man distraught over a blue macau that was on oxygen and they were desparately making calls trying to get an expert to take on the bird's care . Heartbreaking stuff and such a relief to get out of there with Alice still in one piece ....


Alice is still in surgery .

Alice update

Alice is at the emergency vet hospital having her leg sewn back together under general anaesthetic . We had to leave her there , the worst part after I told her as we went in that we wouldnt leave her ....
My big concern has been about greyhounds and anaesthetics not mixing but Scott the vet explained that they would watch her very closely , use the right product and "they haven't lost one so far this week ". Ok I feel much better .
But I can't wait till 5 pm when I can ring and here how she is . We can expect to get her back much later tonight , as its the post op recovery period time that usually brings problems so she will be monitored closely by nurses for a while .

Poor Alice


Poor Alice has been mauled on the beach , not by a seal cub or an Alsatian but by a tiny Jack Russel terrier whom she wasn't even chasing at the time .We've tried telling her before that these little Teds as she thinks of them are far more dangerous than the big dogs like her, as she just stodd there screaming and refused to retaliate .( Just as well ) She is feeling very sorry for herself , cant get comfortable at all . Oh dear .
