Sassy Sunday 5/16/2010

Hi Everyone.  It's Sunday.  Time for Sassy Sunday with me, Sassy (of course).  

Well, we've had a busy week.  My poor little Chili (yup, I called her my Chili) had to have surgery.  Barb mentioned it the other day.  She'd had Chili checked out for a limp before.  The vet had told her she had a slippery knee cap.  Not an uncommon thing in little dogs, apparently.  The instructions were just to watch it.  But it got worse.  
So, Barb decided to get a second opinion.  Never hurts.  No one is perfect.  But the new vet said that he couldn't get her knee to slip out, but was sure there was something wrong with her hip.  So he took an x-ray and yup, her hip was broken!  And it was an old break.  We'd been letting her limp around on a broken hip for weeks!  Barb felt soooo bad.  Of course, she was just doing what the other vet had told her.  So it's not her fault, damnit!  
Anyway, Chili had her surgery this week on Tuesday.  Just look at this big incision!

Poor baby.

She is not restricted on movements, except for jumping off stuff.  The vet said to let her do what she wants to do so that she gets her movement back quickly.  She's got to rebuild that muscle that's pretty much wasted away to nothing!

We had some pretty cool visitors in our yard yesterday.  And the people would not let me or Ginger or Chili out to say hello.  I just don't understand.  I wouldn't have eaten them.  Not all of them anyway.

There were 3 boys and a girl.  I like those odds!

OK.  That's it for another Sassy Sunday.  Come back next week, same bat time, same bat channel!
And thanks so much for stopping by!
