What a New Year; my poor 9 year old baby doxie spent New Years Eve in surgery at Vet ER Clinic. For the past 3 weeks, her walking was getting limited and was shaky at best. After trying medications, accupuncture, laser heat therapy; the vet told us it was time to take her to the ER and get a MRI. She also stated that she thought it was disc issues so xrays really wouldn’t show anything. She told me she though it would run over $10 to $15 thousand; maybe higher. To say I was in a panic and overwhelmed, well that would be a huge understatement. This is my baby, my shadow. She eats, sleeps, plays with me 24/7. She lays next to me while I work. I take a shower, she lays outside the bathroom door waiting. I sit on the couch to watch TV, she actually watches too. I go to bed, she goes to bed. I can’t imagine being without her. I keep thinking of when I brought her home at 1.5 pounds and 9 weeks old back in 2005.
