All is Well in the Animal Kingdom

I took my Gretel to get the staples taken out today (13 days after the surgery to repair her broken pelvis). She is such a little trooper: not a peep, out of her, as the vet removed the 27 staples. I, of course, couldn't wait to get her home and give her a bath. That will have to wait, a few days, per order of the doggie doc! She seems relieved to have those metal objects out of her skin. Perhaps it's just me projecting...okay, it's most likely me projecting! I hardly think she, who went head to head (or bumper to rump) with a mini-van, and emerged victoriously, gave a fig about a few staples. After I took a few pictures of her, I came into my room to find the cats snuggled, happily together on my bed. Animal photo ops abound!


  1. Hi Kimberly,

  2. Oh, poor baby Gretel...I see her backside has the new doooh for spring. Short & sassy! How is your daughter doing now? Give the puppy a kiss for my grand daughter, I have been keeping her informed....I am so glad Gretel is better! sharon
