Just wanted to share how good Bella is doing.  She stood up on her own at the vet and nibbled pieces of hotdog from me in the car on the way home. She is sleeping now and I have an ice pack wrapped in soft fabric on her wound.  It was so wonderful to give her schnuffies.  Her little sister Maya is concerned and curious but giving her space.   I'll try and upload a few pictures.  Thanks to all for being there for us.

Great news!  So glad she is home!

Wherever they are, they are together.

Yay for Bella!  In a couple of weeks you'll look back and realize the amp surgery and recovery was not as bad as you may have expected.  Sending positive healing vibes your way!

I'm so glad to hear Bella is back home under your watchful eye.  I find it amazing how other dogs in the family seem to sense to keep their distance and be gentle.  Sounds like you're doing really well!  Here's to a smooth recovery!  Hugs!
