    In the waiting room she licked my face 3 times. She's never done that. She's not a licker. It was so sweet, like she was comforting me. She was scared in the office, she always is. She's always trying to get me to go out the door. It's quite cute. The first time I had her at the vet I kept thinking she had to pee. I took her out 3 times and she would just pull towards the car. She loves to go places and the vet is the only time she acts like that. They've never done anything at my vet to hurt her so I'm thinking she had a bad experience somewhere else. Maybe she's afraid of the shots, I don't know but she acts so silly about it. She has such a personality. Every bit as big as Henry's. Bulldogs are so different like that. I just love her so much. I've worked to get her feeling better. I pray this was right.

    Roseann, I'm sending all my positive thoughts to you today! I think everything will be okay, as I'm sure your vet will take special care of her. Just so you know, I would have made the same decision you've made to have the surgery. She will feel so much better when this is done and will have a chance at a pain free life from now on. You had to love her a lot to make the decision for surgery. Sometimes it takes more love to make the hard decisions. Hang in there--you're doing the best thing for sweet Macon. I'll be checking back for updates today!

    Of course, she knows you're worried, and she knows you love her. I love that she gave you reassuring licks...makes me teary to think about...

    You are a true angel. God bless you for having such a loving heart.

    First of all you KNOW that you don't want her to lose her eye and she can't continue w/infected teeth. All we can do is make the best decision for our babies and after that we just pray that everything is going to be okay. We can't second guess ourselves because honestly we are left w/no choice. I have a feeling that everything will be fine, but I know that hearing that doesn't always make you feel any better. Just KNOW that we all are praying for you & you are NOT alone today
    Thank you. That means a lot. You guys are so great to think of us today. I'm an emotional mess. My Macon has only been with us 5 weeks. It feels like she's always been here. I came home to 3 dogs and it just wasn't right. This morning I told my daughter that I was afraid she wasn't going to make it through the surgery. She told me that if Macon is tough enough to take on Clyde and Rootbeer she's tough enough to make it through this surgery. Pretty bad that my 14 year old has to comfort her mom instead of the other way around. I don't know if they've started surgery yet. They had 2 emergencies this morning. A cat with a broken leg and a dog that got hit by a car. Those were the priorities before they started with the scheduled surgeries. The vet tech told me that she would call as soon as surgery was over and again after she woke up and was coming around. She said that if there was any problem at all she would call me immediately. I have to wait for my daughter to get out of practice today before I can go back to the office. No school today, practice from 10-12ish. I almost stayed at the office and called sis to tell her to get a ride but I didn't want to be a better dog mom than human mom. LOL I'll let everyone know as soon as I hear anything. The wait is torture. I just can't believe how I was so sure of this until this morning. I have so much emotion and anxiety. She was in such bad shape when she came that I guess I have really become attached. I had an immense amount of sympathy, sadness and anger that I believe has all turned to love. Thank you all for being there for me. I need it today.

    Sending positive thoughts and prayers to Macon today for her procedure. Even though it is scary, you are giving her a much better quality of life. Hugs to you and Macon both.
    Happiness is a warm bulldog!
