We’re having our surgery today, and all on pins and needles and an awful feeling of panic. I am more worried and stressed for him then I was for my surgery a few years ago. I have to keep reminding myself through my recovery he was there for me being strong, loving, my friend.

Oh yeah….we ALL can relate!! Just remember, Snoop’s gonna be high as a kite on all his drugs and, in his own mind, will be eating treats and wagfingmhis tail on-stop while he’s being bathed in non toxic chocolate:-) You, on the other hand——–well, that chocolate thing may not be a bad idea!!
Surgery will go just fine—-he’s in great hands and you will be so thrilled when they call.
Standing by your side the whole way and: holding your hand when needed……..Dog knows, I’m still holding on to this site as my lifelinend have no intention of letting go (they’ve tried to cut the rope sometimes in the dark of the night.but I have my duct tape with me at all times:-)
YAY SNOOP and MOM!!
