Most of the foster dogs have surgery of some kind. It may just be spay/neuter. If we're lucky, that's all they need!! When they have surgery, most have to wear an e-collar to keep them from going after their stitches. I have some pictures to share. This is Leo after his eye surgery. Leo is one of our sweetest Pekes. He is special needs because he is blind. At only about a year old, he's really amazing. He has learned to go up and down the outside steps, he loves people and dogs and his foster mom and dad. Leo had to have one of his eyes removed because it was causing him problems. So, he had to wear a cone to keep him from rubbing it. It looks pretty rough, but pretty soon, he's look wonderful. Here's some pictures and videos of him. http://bluebug.smugmug.com/Pets/LeoPVPC/12819384_qgs2Y#925107460_U4WK9
At my house, I had two "coneheads." I think my Cranberry thinks it's contagious and she is "heading out!" Dimples (now Kaci) is in the middle. She's a little twelve pounder and very sweet! She was an owner turn in and met her future mom at my house the day she arrived. We were told she was four, she may be older, but she sure is loved now in her new home!
Here's Dimples/Kaci again with Sammy. Sammy is being fostered in Va. Beach and he is SO Sweet. (I seem to be saying that a lot, but it's true-- we have a lot of nice Pekes right now!) Sammy was neutered, and he has to wear his e-collar until he is all healed.
Here is Dimples/Kaci again-- you know I had to get at least one pink bed in the blog!!
I told you yesterday there would be pictures of Maximus after his surgery. His big eye folds are gone, and his nose has been opened up more so he can breathe easier. He was also neutered. He is still a beautiful boy, "cone head" and all. And he's happy. One thing his foster mom told me is that he loves to be rocked to sleep!!
Look at that smile. Don't you want to adopt one of these precious Pekes? Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
