Just a quick heads-up post to let you all know that I’m a little slow today – as my big pal and Deputy Editor Dawg is slacking off. Actually, he’s just had a surgery done today to remove an object from his intestine.
He’d been feeling out of sorts and throwing up off and on for several days, and often lacking appetite and energy – two things he usually has in abundance. I took him into our excellent local vet last week and they thought it was just a bit of GI upset and it would likely pass in a day or two. Yesterday he got notably worse, so I took him back in this morning. The vet thought she felt something not right in his intestine and an x-ray confirmed he had something lodged there.
They’ve just finished surgery on him and removed a chunk of a ball that he managed to swallow God knows when. The surgery went well and he’s a big lad who’s strong as an ox – so I hope he’ll be fit as a fiddle again after a couple weeks of recovery.
I’ve only spent a couple hours in my home office today without him and nothing seems right when he’s not around. I can’t even count the number of times I’ve turned around to say something to him only to remember he’s not there. Hopefully he’ll be back at home this evening – as he’s already sorely missed.
