Poor doggie

Before surgery...shes getting big!
She loves Lucy!

After surgery....she was soo out of it!

Stitches..
The ever so popular "cone" or "lampshade" poor thing!
Yes poor Ellie got spayed during this last week. We didn't think about the fact that it would be a tad bit harder with Lucy being sick and being home with our doggie with the conehead..but overall she is seriously the best dog so it went ok. It was done laproscopically so she had WAY less recovery than most animals, hence the picture of her stitches...only three small spots and she didn't have to have an I.V. or anything like that. We did find out she has a mite problem, so she too is on antibiotics, as well as me ( for sinus infection) and Lucy ( for her ear infection). Troy has to give her an acid bath once a week for a month as well. Yikes! I will have to post about that one after it happens. He has to wear gloves and a mask! Anyhow, we love our Ellie and are happy we can rest in the fact that we won't have any doggie periods coming soon!
