Prayers for My Fur Baby...

One of my sweet "fur babies", Champ, had to have surgery today and is feeling a little under the weather this evening.
If you know anything about Boxers, you know that they are prone to all kinds of "bumps" and growths.  This was my sweet boy's 3rd or 4th surgery to have a tumor removed and the second one on the same leg.

When we picked him up from the vet this afternoon he was still very disoriented from the anesthetic and he was wearing an Elizabethan collar to keep him from licking the wound and possibly pulling out the sutures. Bless his heart...he looked like he had a lampshade on his head! ) :

In addition to having surgery on his hind left leg, he had his teeth cleaned and he also had to have 2 teeth extracted that were abscessed! He keeps licking his front left leg where his IV was inserted so it must be a little sore, too. It's so hard to watch my buddy feel like this...he looks so pitiful.
He was able to have a light meal before bedtime and has been tucked in his bed ever since.  Tomorrow he starts on his prescription medicines...praying he feels much better tomorrow after a good night's rest.

I love you, "Champer Doodle"!
