UPDATE: Daisy came through beautifully. The vet took 2 teeth. He used gas and she recovered instantly--all done within an hour. She's on anti-biotics and pain meds now. Her blood work was fabulous--BUN was 25 (good) and creatinine (sp?) was .7 and it has to be 1.4 to start to be bad. Just amazing. My mom says Daisy is in such good shape she's a freak of nature (said in a most loving way!)
My mom is leaving us on Thursday to visit her human family. She's going to drive to Virginia then she & her mom will fly to Milwaukee together to visit my mom's brother. This is where she will get to meet my cousin Cesar the white German shepherd. She will return next Wed. We all stay in the house and a petsitter comes to take care of us. The petsitter is my mom's best friend and she really loves us.
What that means is getting the house ready for her to be gone. There have to be a million towels washed. A hundred blankets washed so we can continue to live in beagle luxury. Furniture has to be moved so we can't jump up on things. My mom has to buy a bajillion pounds of dog food so we don't starve and has to put together Sasha's special diet in containers so the pet sitter can store it in her refrigerator. Plus she has to rent a car, get packed (this is a major deal), get projects in order at work so she can leave for a week. Phew.
Plus, she is taking our old Daisy in to the vet's tomorrow. They are going to clean Daisy's teeth while my mom waits, using gas to put her under since they can control that better. Then mom goes to work. Then she comes home, takes Laci & precious Graham to the rescuer's so they can care for him while she's gone. She'll get them back next week.
Then she lost her phone and emailed all her friends to call. She heard it under a pile of blankets finally. Her phone barks so we had to be quiet.
OMD, I need a nap now!
