Oh geeze!!!. My niece's dog did something similar.
I'm sure the vet has lots of experience with this kind of thing and is doing fine. But I can imagine how Bec and Greg are feeling.

Oh poor Beck she must be worried sick. Yes I am sure her Vet has done this surgery many times before.

Hey all - just came back from vets (and chiropractor) - Sammie is doing amazingly well for having gone through major surgery 12 hrs ago...he refuses to eat, he was upset I left him and with any luck he'll be home tomorrow! Knucklehead ate 5 socks total, 3 small ones that 'came up' by themselves, the other 2, not so much...what an ordeal - he'll forever be known as the $10K dog

I'm so happy he came through with flying colors (or should I say "flying socks?").

I know that this has been a really trying ordeal for you Becky. So sorry that you had to go through all the distress and also the cost of saving his life. I wince whenever writing a monthly check to our Vet for maintenance meds, but in reality can't think of another place I would want my money to go. These furry ones are worth every penny we spend on them as far as I am concerned. I think of the enjoyment that our pets have brought us over the years, and know that they have added even more to our lives than any amount of money we could ever spend on them. Can't put a price on love, can you? Hope he continues to do well and doesn't stay mad at you for too very long.

& Ruby, you're right - can't put a price on love...:-) we will pretty much do whatever we need to do to keep all our critters safe & sound - with him being so big nothing cheap ever happens to him :-)
