I know Mowgli isn't one of "our" usual dogs but I just wanted you all to know that he's having his surgery tomorrow. For anyone that didn't know his story - he is a 12 year old that got "dumped" by a family that didn't have time for him anymore. My vet refused to put him down (his owner's requested "solution") and provided him with free board for the last month along with treatment for his ear and eye infections that had gone untreated, a full grooming, a complete cardiac work-up (with meds for a heart murmur) and, tomorrow will be the day he gets a growth on his right cheek (non-cancerous) removed).

I saw the little guy tonight and he is feeling sort of low and looking so unhappy in his cage. He loves when we take him out and let him play. The staff and vets are terrific but he knows he's not home. I can't imagine going into surgery alone knowing no one cares. Please let's send prayers and positive thoughts to Mowgli so he comes through this well and can get on with a good life.

Thanks!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Update 6/13 - 3:30 pm

Thank you all for your prayers and support. Just so you know Mowgli must have felt very safe and upheld because he came through everything "very well". Poor pup is going to wake up with the growth on his cheek gone, several teeth missing, a full dental cleaning and having been shaved down but I guess by now he's used to surprises. :OMY I have both emailed and left a phone message for Floss so I won't go into his full current status since I want her to have the full inside story first but he IS well and will soon be ever better!

I was having some worries about taking Mowgli, as Vickie knows, but I just sent her a message. I simply can't let him go to a rescue, he has to come home with me, as planned. If he does well, and there's no reason he shouldn't, I'm hoping he can come home Saturday, as I have the week-end off, and he and Rosie will need me here to help reassure them and keep the peace! The cats will simply have little kitty strokes, but they really love Rosie, so hopefully they'll get used to Mowgli! And just so you all know, I now have a dog named Mowgli and one of my cat's names is (get ready)...Fugli(don't ask :ROFL: ).

Lots of positive thoughts and prayers being sent to Mowgli; for now, during his surgery/recovery and for lots of love at his forever home with Floss and Rosie. :th-up

Heard from Vickie this afternoon...and of course, all the prayers worked! Mowgli came thru his surgery well, had the facial mass removed and a Dental! Now he has to wear an e-collar, poor baby, I hate those things. The plan is for him to come home on Saturday, :Clap I'd get him sooner if I didn't have to work. I can't wait to bring him home! Can you imagine how frightening and confusing this must all be? I can't take Rosie with us to get him, as she doesn't travel well and throws up in the car. Besides that, I'm sure she would be so wildly excited to have another dog in the car that we'd probably all crash!! LOL! Vickie's gonna meet us at the vet, so I'm thrilled that we'll finally meet face to face. Hopefully, we'll get pictures, and of course, more when we get home, so all of you guys will know how he is and can follow the adventures of "Ro & Mo" as they get acquainted. Sooo excited!! :YAY

Okay....evil me....as much as I hate to admit it - I DO have an evil side. When speaking with Floss and hearing how she's going to pretty Mowgli up, I did ask if she'd mind if, when she posted pictures, I printed them out and dropped them on his former owner's doorstep. :shock: Perhaps they should see what they thought of as garbage. :neen
