Today my foster-sister Freya is having a really important visit with the vet.
She is going into surgery to have both of her knees operated on to repair her luxating patellas. If there is time, she will also have her lady-bits removed and get a doggy dental (with possible teeth extractions).
She will be staying with Lindsay from The Boston Terrier and Pug Rescue of Southern Manitoba for six whole weeks while she is confined to a kennel. Six weeks is going to feel like forever for me (and Freya) but this time is important to ensure the surgery is a success and hopefully she can have a life without pain.
I had offered to be her nurse-maid during her recovery time but mum told me that kennel rest would mean no tussling, playing or games of chase at all. As much as I will miss her, I had to agree that it would be very difficult for Freya and I to be together and abide by all these strict rules. It would make us both really sad.
If you can spare some healing thoughts, please send them Freya’s way today.
I’ll miss you Freya, we are like two peas in a pod.
Don’t think that means I’m gonna go easy on you when it comes time for the Big Chase Match!
