Miss Penny Pinscher had a rough day yesterday. She has had a hard lump on the top of her head for almost 2 weeks. The vet looked at it and thought that she had just whacked her noggin on something and we were treating it with some Surpass to bring down the swelling. Unfortunately, it wasn't working, the lump was getting bigger, and she was starting to look like a cone head, sooo, back to the vet. Took an x-ray to make sure her brain wasn't leaking out and saw that whatever it was wasn't attached to the bone so he decided to whack it out. It turned out to be an abscess that was totally encapsulated. Good news. She will be fine in a few days, but for now she is pretty pitiful.
The drain tubes will come out in a couple of days, and then the lampshade can come off.
And, in case you didn't know, it's not easy to sleep with a dog in a lampshade.
She ought to be back digging for gophers in about a week.
I am a middle age married gal living out my dreams. If it poops, I'm your gal to clean it up! Needs mowing, say no more! Love my husband, my horses, dogs, cats and pond fish, all in that order. Oops! That was before Penny! Hmmm.
