She is alive!

We have our little monkey back at home! As imagined, of course, all went well. I’ll be honest though: I was such a cry-baby at the vet. Poor Zaphira – I probably did not make it easier for her. She fell asleep in my arms though and then was taken to surgery. The surgery went really fast. We also decided to only take the right dew claw away, as that is the one that is causing her so much troubles and there is no need to take out the other one.

When picking her up she seemed semi awake. How wrong I was! She has been sleeping all of yesterday and only got up on the early evening when we served her favourite dinner. Of course ;).

Also we have Fridolin here until Sunday so that is a nice change. Zaphira seems much more active again this morning so I think we can walk for a bit longer with the dogs today. Unfortunately it is supposed to rain so let’s see how the weather will continue and what we will be doing. We certainly have no real plans for the weekend except for chilling a bit and (ugh) I really need to clean the apartment again!

Good morning! Today I will be working from home – always super nice! – as my little baby (Zaphira) is undergoing surgery right now. It isn’t all too dramatic, though. They will be removing both dew claws (? “Wolfskralle” in German) at her front feet. She has so often gotten stuck with them somewhere outside and either nearly or fully pulled them out that it has ended bloody several times. Again, nothing to worry about, but because we have this issue every couple of months my vet and I decided it may be best to removing them.

I will surely be updating you on how she is doing post-surgery!

Yesterday I had Fridolin (the Italian Greyhound of friends) visit Zaphira and myself at the office for an hour. Such a cutie! I remember when he was a puppy and even smaller than Zaphira – now, he already outgrew her! Fridolin will actually be coming over again today and staying until Sunday. His parents are attending an event and we will have the cutie plus our two fluffy loves at home. 3 dogs! I’m sure it will be an interesting and the most cuddly weekend in a while!
