I'm so sorry to hear this, definetely not a good Birthday gift. But if its what's best for her, then better to do it, and then celebrate her birthday later. Is she having the surgery right on her birthday? And if so, can you maybe do the surgery a day or two later after her birthday? Wishing Miss Tallulah a very happy birthday, a good surgery, and a quick recovery. Keep us posted on her surgery. Sending you and Tallulah good wishes, thoughts and prayers. Bulldozer and Blossom send their love and Woofs too.
