Wild Life Of A Little Monster

Others are scared of me because of all the fun I have. Considered a vigilante by my Eponine.

Under The Knife

In recuperation modeSpeaking of the "Aggressive Weiner," otherwise known as Daphne, she recently put us through a scare. That concern, along with several days of fret by me and Sexy Lady, finally led to surgery, a few days of recuperation, to today. The new and improved Daphne!

On the day of her surgery, later that night I went over to visit. It was then that I told Sexy Lady and a friend, Joy, that I would never get another monster. That there was no way I could ever handle or would desire going through those heavy emotions again. It tore me up just worrying about the D-dog.

Boom!!! The monster walked on up and got in just a week later. Crazy. Life really is crazy. It changes in an instant.

As for the details, Daph came to stay with me beginning July 3. By that weekend, I knew something was wrong. The rejection of a McDonald's hamburger certainly was a hint. However, Charlie also was visiting so I just wasn't certain. She still was full of excitement if a walk or car ride was involved, which made it a little confusing. But all else was unusual. Her appetite and demeanor were so very not Daphne.

Post-surgery stitchesAfter a few visits to the vet, it was determind that her girl parts likely were infected. We weren't 100 percent sure, but felt it was the right diagnosis. Decided to operate and yank out anything bad. While under and sleeping soundly, it also was discovered that she had a bad molar.

One could tell that she was pretty groggy post-surgery and just not certain what was happening or had happened to her. But then within a day or so it was magical. She was dandy! Now, she's even eating dog food and likes it. Not just surviving on treats. And in an instant, her quality of life improved.

I think your close up pic of her scar reveals that #5 nipple is missing! Another one of her many unique body markings! (i.e. back toe nail is also missing! ha!) She is so much better now and yes that was sure a scary experience for all of us. I thought the end was near and wasn't sure how I would cope w/out her... but all is well and she's better than ever. We are so very blessed.

We are very glad that Daphne is feeling better. We think Eponine heard you say no more monsters so she looked around and found this little monster and told her to go move in on you. We do several of the things that Vincent used to do even though he went to the Bridge before we got here and we aren't related. We could tell Mommy that he came back and told us that water was fun to play with, but it's more fun to make her wonder.

She looks like a real sweetie. Good luck with your new little girl. We hope her tummy gets better soon.
