Ginger is a Pomeranian, only 8-9 months old and has been a member of our family since April/May. She is a little monster with an extreme amount of energy! She runs as though she has a rocket strapped to her back.She barely barks. She barely even knows she can bark. Its as if the barks accidentally escapes out of her when we tease her with a toy and pretend like we are going to throw it. She loves to push my room door slightly open, sneak into my room and steal stuffed animals near the floor while I'm not looking! I usually catch her because the amount of space through the open door (made by her) is small so she doesn't fit back through with the stuffed animal in her mouth. She really has filled our hearts and home with love since our 11 year old family dog passed away last October. Ginger fractured her elbow on her front left paw 1.5 weeks ago. After a week in a cast her bone did not get better. There was no choice but to operate and put a metal pin inside her little bone. =( Her surgery was yesterday and I was soooo worried! She is like the baby of the family (she took my place, LOL!) Took this picture with my phone yesterday while visiting her: The vet said that she was extremely medicated so she wouldn't feel the pain. My mom was already there with her by the time I arrived. She was conscious enough to recognize me because she tried to move when she saw me. It broke my heart to see her like that! The vet told us that the surgery went well and showed us the xray of her elbow with the pin in place. I went to visit her this morning again. Took another picture with my phone: She is still medicated but was standing on her own. She wasn't putting the paw down but looked much better than the day before. It still broke my heart to see her like that. She didn't really react when she saw me. It made me want to cry. The vet said that the medication still has her in the clouds. I want her back home! The house doesn't feel the same without her at my feet during dinner trying to bite off my socks. I can post better pictures of her (normal picture) when I'm back on my home computer.
