This is my little Friend Elmo. He may be small but, he's very brave! Every indistinguishable sound will send him running through the house with his head flung back barking at the top of his lungs. He loves to protect his territory. Actually, I'm not sure if he's protecting or if he's saying, "I'm here! I'm here! Come play with me PLEASE!
The other day I was home when the meter guy came into the back yard while both dogs were out there. I heard little Coco running and barking towards the house but no Elmo so I poked my head out the door and there he was dancing around the meter guys feet just as happy as can be.
This is my little guy who was supposed to have surgery but he didn't.
After leaving the vet with a breakdown of what the surgery would cost I was horrified. I was given two "estimates." One was for the best possible care and the other was for mediocre care. If I wanted the best care for my furry friend it was going to cost me 1200 dollar. But, if I wanted to give him the mediocre care I'd pay only 650 dollars. OI VEY!
So I panicked and called my boss. She's an Indian woman who was a Dr. in India and came to America intending to get her liscence here but, the Lord had other things for her to do. Now she practises Midwifery and from what I've been told she's the best.
Anyway, she looked at the bill, looked at Elmo and said that his abcess was minor. She cleaned it out and packed it with her wonder antibiotic and said to keep it clean. Do I trust this woman? WITH MY LIFE! So I decided to trust her with my dog.
Elmo is doing beautifully and his wound is closing up nicely.
He hasn't missed a single creak or sound through the whole thing.
