Dear Little Kylie...

Our little Australian terrier, Kylie, had acute surgery today.
I discovered a rather large lump in her abdominal area while giving her a bath.  She hadn't been acting like the cheerful little dog she normally is, so we were quite concerned. 
I called the vet and he told us to bring her in right away. 
The decision was made to operate immediately and we hope that he managed to remove all of the growth.  I'm afraid I just couldn't imagine life without this wonderful little dog.  Kylie will be ten this summer, a faithful and loving friend.  She's resting quietly on my lap right now, wrapped in the flannel quilt I made for my Dad a few years ago.  She's warm and comfy and knows her Mommy is taking good care of her. 
If you'd like to send some positive thoughts our way, I'd really appreciate it. 
Hugs, Mary Ann  :o) 

Edited to say:  Kylie is doing so much better! She's almost back to her normal self...thanks for all the well wishes!  :o)

Glad to hear your little Kylie is doing better after such a surgery. My Sierra just had surgery on her bladder for bladder stones 2 weeks ago Friday. She was very sore for the first couple days but by the 3rd day she was feeling much better and was back to her usual antics shortly after. It's amazing how animals bounce back so much quicker than we do, they're so resiliant. Good luck with Kylie, hope she gets better soon.

MaryAnn, it is so nice to find another person who loves animals like I do! I hope your Kylie is doing well. I lost two of my dachshunds in the last two years. They were both 16. Broke my heart. Took me months before I could even talk about my little boy. So honey I understand the love we have for our "babies". They do become part of the family.
Saying a little prayer for your Kylie and you!
