Default Best Friend in hospital

My best friend of 9 years in going under the knife today. His spleen is 80% constricted and is twisting the stoic as well. He is getting it taken out in order to save his life or he will pass in the next week.

Anyone that knows us knows how much our dog Dodge means to us. He is like our child since we have no children of our own. Since he was a pup he has gone to work with me almost everyday and any where we go. Almost everyone in our small town knows him.

Dodge was born with an irregular heart beat and was to be put to sleep at 8 weeks old by the breeder. My wife and I took him in thinking he would only have a life span of 2 years. Now more than 9 years latter every day is a blessing knowing he is here. He is in excellent shape but with his heart condition it is not a good thing to be put under anesthesia. That alone might kill him.

The operation will begin soon and all we can do is pray.

Our prayers and thoughts are with you. Pets are so much more than pets. We hope the operation is a success. He's a beautiful puppy.

I am hoping it goes well, I will keep my fingers crossed I know first hand how much pets mean to a family. He was lucky that you and your wife have been there to give him a second chance.

Just got word from the Vet. I am the proud father of a 6 Lb 5oz baby spleen . He is out of surgery and doing well . There was no sign on any tumors. We just have to get through the next few days while he is in recovery.

Thanks for your prayers and wishes

Paul & Jessica
