Staple Out!

6 Mar

So Smidge had her stomach UN-stapled yesterday.

The surgery went well but she still has to stay at the vet until Monday to make sure the plumbing still works properly.

    So glad Smidge is now staple free! Sending healing to the little one, courage to Pip for being without her sister, and peace to their parents! I know how hard it is to have your beloved pets away from you, and the worry you go through. Pip and Smidge have the love of all that have come in contact with you both, and that’s a big load of love for two little doggies! 🙂

    Make sure you puppy-proof the house, I have three dogs and for the longest time I had to make sure the house was completely free of swallowable hazards in reach of the critters, and I had to crate them when I couldn’t watch them like a hawk. It takes a lot out of you, but it’s better than surgery, and eventually they stop eating every single thing they see. I hope.

    Darn dogs, you love them no matter what but you still wish they would use a little common sense when they eat!

    Poor puppy. I had a friend in high school once who swallowed a mouth full of straight pins. She was using them to pin up a skirt and one minute they were between her lips and the next they weren’t. One little staple doesn’t come close to that. There is a TV show on National Geographic called “My dog ate what”? It’s about dogs who eat astonishing things. Might make Smidge feel better (or give her ideas).

    I’m glad you were able to take care of your puppy!

    I glad the surgery went well… Puppies eat everything that looks ahead. Thankfully it was only a scare…

    My older son put everything in his mouth when he was a baby. I was constantly fishing things out of his mouth. I think he finally quit doing that when he was 15. I hope Smidge mends quickly so she can come home, and get lots of love. You may have to resort to desginating a puppy room or putting her in a pen of some kind when she is home without people to keep her safe and staple free.
    P.S. (I hope Nunu’s resting place is on high ground.)

    Poor little sweetheart! I’m glad she’s okay now.
