I need to scream a bit.
We took the puppy in on Monday to have her spayed, microchiped and her dew claws removed (vet said that should have been done when she was 1 week old).
At noon on Monday I get a call from the school nurse. DD #2 passed out! Now mind you this is my fragile child 27 wk preemie, she has a shunt, so I am pretty freaked out. I run her to the emergency room and the doctors freak out and order every kind of test you can think of. So we stay over night to get all the test done.
Then my hubby calls me and says the "owner" of the puppy called and wants to know our address so they can come and get her. So hubby told him that we were told she wasn't wanted anymore and that she was at the vet getting fixed. So they said OK nevermind. :nc: :nc: :nc: I am greatful that we are keeping her but so very angry with them. #1 Why wait a week to call us? #2 How could they give her up so easily? #3 Why hadn't they taken proper care of her? Vet says those dew claws can be dangerous for her, and that it was a pretty good bet that she had little or no veterinary care up until we found her. UUGHHH!!!!
So now I am home with my two girls, one recovering from surgery and one who we have no idea why she passed out.
I gave up on the camper remodel until I get the puppy settled in better.

Oh yeah and in all the crazyness the kids settled on Drooliet for her name. I still can't find that darn digital camera!!!:bang: :bang: :bang: I promise even if I have to dig out the old charcoal and chalk I will get an image of the dog posted soon.

big hugs coming your way - hope your girlies get better soon.

Some people shouldn't have pets. You are not one of them.:bg:
love and kisses, Jan

Oh Gina you are in my thoughts. I know when your child is sick or hurting that is #1 on the list. The only pets I have now are fishies and I talk to them and my husband thinks I'm crazy, well he know's I'm crazy anyways, I hope all your girls are back on track soon. Let us know how your daughter makes out. Was she hungry? Sometimes that makes me feel weak, although it rarely happens, (I'm always eating). :angel:
I'm regressing back into my youth, I just have to figure out how I'm going to convience my body to come along with me.

Gina, I'm so sorry that you have had such a rough time lately!

I wondered if your daughter migh have had a drop in blood sugar (due to hunger, as Susie said) and that might have been what made her pass out.

Bless all your hearts!

Gina, if it's true that "it" comes in threes - I think you should be out of the storm.

Not only are your girls lucky to have you by their side, but this little puppy is too.

Jan, you're right about some people shouldn't own pets. But I often wonder if they can't take care of a pet properly, what are they doing with their own children? :nervous:

:bluesad: I see those children at school.

Some of these people have absolutely no parenting skills and it is scary to say the least.
love and kisses, Jan

Oh Gina! All my best sent to you from the west! :bg:

How very scary concerning your daughter. I'm sure "normal" problems take on a new meaning with your daughter. How old is she? :love:

As for the puppy. What a lucky girl she is! How nervy of the original "owners" to call yet how good of them not to press the issue.

Good luck with Drooliet and your special girl.

Here's another ((((hug)))). I hope your dd is feeling better. Maybe she just caught a bug at school. I've always been one to feel faint when I get sick.

I'm glad the dog's original "owners" at least said never mind. Sounds like they didn't really care since they waited a week to call.
