My doggie Solomon had to have a tumor removed from his ear. They said I could pick him up around 6 pm at night. But when they were taking him out of his cage he shook his head, like doggie's love to do, and hit the wound against the plastic doggie collar and it bled. They thought it was best if he stayed overnight. Best for who? I wondered? Certainly not for this nervous sad Mom. :( First time he ever stayed away from home in the 12 1/2 years I've had him. WOW it was so much harder then I ever imagined. His absence was felt so boldly in our home. I was amazed at all the things I do automatically for him. Things like picking up the kitchen garbage at bedtime so he doesn't get into it. Checking his water bowl. Hearing his feet click, click across the kitchen floor when he is walking after me. Stepping out of my shower and not finding him laying on the bathroom floor waiting for me. Turning off my blow dryer and not having him wagging his tail a mile a minute because he knows after blow dryer comes OUTSIDE for him ! My gosh, I told my husband when Sollie goes to be with the Lord (I know, but in my heart I need to believe that our dear pets go to Heaven. The lion & the lamb will lie down, so why not my doggie. He can't sin right ?) Anyway what an absence it will be. He survived his operation quite well. But due to the placement of the tumor on the outside back of his ear it will be very, very difficult for it to heal. He bumps it and scratches it constantly. There is not much skin on the ear so the vet is hoping it will heal. I know the Lord is able, putting it in His hands.
