I knew this was coming

Chesty has to have surgery on his knee tomorrow. With ten weeks of restricted activity and a significant cost it’s a good thing I love him so much! They were going to keep him this afternoon but Keith has been out of town and gets home tonight. He’ll want to cuddle some with Chesty before his surgery so I brought him home and we’ll take him back at 7AM tomorrow.


  1. What a gorgeous dog – sorry to hear that he’s not well. Hope all goes well with him and that he has a speedy recovery.

  2. Give Chesty a snuggle for me. One of my dogs had ALS surgery and it was so hard to know he was in pain and I couldn’t explain it to him. But it will all be worth it in the long run.

  3. Oh, Mary, I’m so sorry to hear that Chesty has to have surgery. I’ll be thinking of you and pray it goes well tomorrow. Please give Chesty a hug from me.

  4. Wishing you all good luck with his surgery. We went through leg surgeries with our Corgi, and it’s wonderful how dogs will just continue to be optimists about life, even when it’s tough for them. We can learn a lot……

  5. Sending lots of positive thoughts and hugs for both you and Chesty. I’m sure all will go well tomorrow. Has to be so hard for you – just like having another child to worry about. I’ll be thinkiing of all of you tomorrow.

  6. Oh the poor little baby….sending good thoughts for a successful surgery and a quick recovery. Some extra prayers for Mommy too. 🙂

  7. Sending you and Chesty the best thoughts…My boys are sending good thoughts too. Zack had his first knee done last August and his other one done in October…he’s better than new now. Tons of good thoughts for all of you.

  8. Hug that sweet little dog for me too. He looks like such a sweetie. I am sending all the good thoughts I can send his way. And yours, too……10 weeks of confinement is a lot……Wendi in CA

  9. Oh Mary, my heart goes out to you and to Chesty! I will be saying some prayers as well. 🙂 All will be fine, I’m sure. Poor Chesty will probably need a lil sumpin sumpin from PetCo though so get ta shopping!!Let us know as soon as he gets out!!dawn

  10. Mary .. prayers going up for Chesty .. (critter prayers from Pixel, shadow and Orion too)Tried to comment yesterday but blogger logged me out and wouldn’t let me log back in – nasty bloggerHUGS for you and a wine – chew for Chestygrace

  11. I hope everything goes well today and Chesty is back to normal very soon. I’m sure today will be a long day until you hear he is O.K. Hugs to you Mary.

  12. I am sure all will go well. My mother had to have two of her dogs have this surgery with great results. It is interesting that I have heard several people mention this very same issue with their pets at this time.

  13. oh, poor Chesty. I am so sorry to hear that he is gonna have to have surgery, but it sounds like thats what he really needs to get to feeling much better and that is what we all want 🙂I’m sure you and Keith will give him lots of lovin as he recovers. Love form Texas! ~bonnie

  14. Poor baby! I hope he pulls thru with flying colors. You might have to make him a special quilt to snuggle with while he recouperates! We’ll be praying for him – little buddy. Best of Luck! Jennifer – FW, TX
