Double Whammy with Wilhelmina.

Wilhelmina, " I just came back from the groomer's. Do you like my polka-dot necklace the groomer gave me?"

Wilhelmina, " Here is a better view of it!"

Wilhelmina, " I am nice and tidy so that the vet can see what he is doing when I get spayed tomorrow. That's correct! I am now six months old and I am ready to be pasteurized! It will also be a double whammy! Anyway, I think that's how they called it! I am going to the vet's very early tomorrow morning and I will be at the vet's all day. I will also be getting an umbilical hernia fixed at the same time which is the double whammy part I think, on account that will make two operations in one day."

Wilhelmina, "One operation is a little bit scary but TWO operations is a little bit daunting! Can you send good thoughts and vibes my way to ensure everything goes well for me? It would help make me feel so much better knowing I have some friends behind me.  I sure could use the support.  Thanks so much!"

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
See you soon.

She will need to take it easy for the next few weeks as she recovers.Thank you to everyone for all your good wishes and POTP. We know it helped enormously*

  22. Hi, so good to hear that Wilhelmina's home and doing well. Surgery of any kind(on pets or on us)is scary. Copper had that type of hernia too-she had the surgery the week before our daughter got her. Hunter will need to go in for teeth cleaning next fall(can we say ouch at the cost!), and I'm not looking forward to that. Hope you have a wonderful weekend and I love the polka dot necklace.
    Noreen and Hunter
