Want to wring your hands with me?

Howllo Fellow Hound and Surgery Haters! Don’t you just hate it when your baby is going to have surgery? I pace and worry to the point of nausea.

Homer is going to have his neuter surgery today and at the same time, he is going to have his horrible teeth cleaned. The decision was made to go ahead and do this prior to his transport. I have everything in place for Homer to be transported on Saturday. That is a blog posting in and of itself, which you can rest assured I will get to!

Anyway, back to our Homer and hand wringing session.


This is going to work out really good for Homer because he is basically going to get private vet care. The vet explained to me that not many people are doing these types of procedures right after the holidays. Due to the economy vet care is down over all.

Yesterday Homer had a much needed bath and the tech reported that he did fantastic. He was filthy and now he is all spit shined and ready for hugging.

Also, the staff at the vet office absolutely love him and he is really becoming quite the big man on campus.

Homer’s bills are mounting and I am going to throw him a New Year’s Eve bill paying party. I want to help his new Mom out all we can. Thank goodness she was wanting to take an older gentleman into her home and give him the love he so deserves.

Well, I better go wait by the phone. He is in surgery right now as I type. His geriatric blood panel came back with flying colors.

Sling Homer some drool and check back for my next Homer update. I think I need a Pepito bismol.

More Later…Cat, Chaps and Emma

    Hi Maureen and Slinky. I am going to be posting more pictures and a little video of Homer tomorrow, New Year’s Eve. At that time I will have information on how to donate to Homer with a list of all of his expenses. No amount is too small. It would be great if a lot of folks donated a small amount. That is my wish. It would be great if we could get a big crowd at Homer’s party.
    Thanks for asking Maureen.

    Cat and Homer
