Photo Hunt 071: Numb

This photo was taken several ago when one of my dogs, little Lily, had a nasty fall. We brought her immediately to the vet and, after an xray test result showed a fractured left front leg, she was immediately sedated for surgery.

My poor Lily! It took awhile before the cast was taken off.

I remember this very well because when we took her home from the vet, she was still groggy. The vet said the injured leg was still numb from the anesthesia so she was unable to move properly yet.  My heart instantly went out to her. She looked genuinely sad just by looking at her eyes and obviously wanting extra TLC from me and my husband. And we did, but my husband and I couldn’t help but laugh at her cast though. It was bigger than she was.

Furry Friday #001: Max

This is my first entry for this week’s Furry Friday.
max, 8weeks
Max, half-breed Keeshond, age 8-10weeks old

When we brought her home, she was a very quiet dog and liked to keep to herself. This was taken days before she contracted distemper. A cocktail of injections was given by the vet to her everyday for 3months. Luckily, she survived. Except for her bad teeth and excessive shedding, she is very active and healthy.
