My Little Friend


This is a photo I took of my sweet little Dylan. It was taken two days after his cancer surgery in January. He has been doing great.  :D

Dachshunds are known to be stubborn and determined. He wasn't about to let a "little" surgery get him down!  He has been right by my side every minute. I can't even take a shower without him in the bathroom with me. He runs around the house, plays with Nugget and Henry Cat.

Of course he cuddles right next to me at night.  I think he likes to feel me breathing right beside him. I know I do...

Last night I discovered that Dylan has developed a small open wound on his chest. I felt something damp under his arm when I picked him up to help him outside.  It is right where his surgery was done months ago.

We're going to the vet this afternoon. Being a nurse, I imagine all sorts of horrible things...  I hope it is a localized infection that can be treated with antibiotics.  I know it is probably something else.

Please pray for us. We knew the time would come eventually. I just hope it's not right now.

Kathi, I will be hoping and praying that the wound can be treated and Dylan will be OK!

Fingers and toes crossed for you. Give Dylan a hug for me.

Praying for you, Kathi. We just lost our dog, Angel. I hope you don't have to go through that and that the wound is just an infection.

Thanks! The wound IS an infection. Doc gave me some Cipro, a strong antibiotic, and told me to apply Neosporin to the wound. He said just to keep an eye on it and bring Dylan back if it gets worse.

Good news! :D

Very good news indeed! Give Dylan a hug from a dog's lover from Thailand.

Being an owner of three wonderful dogs myself I felt a tear come to my eye reading your post, and was so pleased to read your comment further down that it was an infection. Hugs to Dylan. He is so cute.
