Cooper's latest adventure

He ate a rock. What a dufus.

He started vomiting this morning and couldn't keep anything down. I decided to take him to get it checked and I'm glad that I did. The rock was in his small intestine. I have the rock in a baggie but decided to spare you a picture of it. I asked if he could be neutered while he was already anesthetized. I was allowed to watch the surgery which was cool. I have the best vets! And thank goodness for pet insurance!

Hopefully he will be well enough to come home tomorrow.

Way to go, Cooper. And yea, mom, for doing 2 surgeries with one visit.

OMG- poor Cooper!
I'm afraid Denny will do something like that as well. He's always something in his mouth.
I hope Cooper will be home soon!

There is always something isn't there?

Oh boy you really have to watch those puppies! I'm glad he's ok Susan. I find surgeries interesting to watch also but DH thinks I am mad:-)

Dear Cooper:

You are not a basset hound and shouldn't need to take the world in orally. However, do be a dear and nicely take any pills the vet might have sent home...
