Not The News We Were Hoping For

Hi Everydoggy. Duke here. Gidget asked me to give you all an update on her luxating patella. She is a little bummed out right now and doesn't really feel like talking. She had her leg re-checked yesterday, and unfortunately, it hasn't gotten any better. She thought it had, but that is probably because she hasn't been running around at all. Apparently her patella is still "popping out all over the place" to quote Dr. Bruhn. He recommended that she have surgery to repair it. Mom & Dad plan on getting a second opinion, and exploring all the options before they make a decision though. The recovery sounds pretty painful, and they want to make sure surgery is absolutely necessary before they put Gidget through that. As for me, well, I guess I'm gonna have to get used to chasing myself around for a while longer.

Gidget also wanted to thank Pug Mommy and Raoul's Mom for all the info and advice they have given us. We really appreciate all their help. Oh and she also wants to thank Norman for calling her a sexy lady. I had never seen a pug blush before until Gidget read that comment.

So sorry to hear what the mean old Vet had to say Gidget. I sure hope he was wrong. If not, I bet your People will keep you doped up through the recovery, and you won't remember a thing :)

Oh, no, Gidgey! No surgery! I'm so sorry that you're going through this, but just trust that your family will make the best decision for you. They love you and want you to get better :)

You'll be chasing Duke around once you're all better. He better watch his back! Hehehe!

Dear Luke

I'm sorry to hear about Gidget. I hope your mum and dad can work something out to help her without an operation.

I hope you have a very happy Barkday tomorrow and you get nice cake and treats. This might brighten up Gidget too.

Love from Hammer

Poor wonder she doesn't want to talk. I wouldn't either if there was talk of me going under the knife.

Keep us posted on the 2nd opinion.
