Uncle Alf and the Surgery!

I havent blogged since my last post as Alf took a turn for the worst and had to go for emergency surgery on his spine! I was so worried about him and his ma & pa.... it was very upsetting.
Alfie was taken to a special place for very poorly dogs.
You can only go here if the vet sends you...
It was nearly dark when his Ma went to collect him...

There was another chap anxiously waiting for news of his friend...

Then out came Uncle Alfie with his lovely nurse Bryony.

He was still on a few tablets, so was still away with the fairies, but he looked so much better than he did and he isnt in constant pain now, he's just a bit sore.

 He sat and had a goodbye chat with his nurse...
Even though Alfies operation was on his spine, the surgeon had to go in through the front... here you can see his big plaster covering his wound and stitches.

He had his legs shaved like a poodle. This was for all the needles he had to have for his drip and pain killers. He will still be a bit sore for a while and he has to go very careful and needs to have crate rest, but he should get better soon and be back to Alf... he's never been the most energetic puppy... so he should be ok just chillin out from now on!
Here is Alfie showing you his big bandage.....
"Look guys, look at my big scar... im a big brave boy!"

Finally, Alfie is in the car ready to go home!
Home is his favourite place! he has lovely toys, lovely food, lovely friends, lovely cosy bedding and best of all lovely Pawrents who spoil him!
"come on Ma, lets go home"
Big hug xxxxxxx

Oh that place looks amazing, so very posh! I'm sure that Alf enjoyed his recuperation there, love the photos, he s looking well, I'm glad that he can go home with your Nanna and that she will take care of him until he is much better and then maybe you can meet up for a play date because I know how much you love him! The photos are good, so cute but sad to see Alf with such a big "boo-boo" on his neck, Mum says he must have been very brave! Paws crossed for a speedy recovery! Love and Licks from your Furiend Frank XxxxX
