Tomorrow Drake and I will see the vet. He broke his nail when he stretched and slipped while waking up. Good thing, he did not bleed when he had his accident. I can see him hurting and in pain, but still trying to be playful with Angie ( my other lab) and the other kids. I tried to isolate him but it only makes him lonely and sad not being able to play with the rest of the family. I didn't send him in for an overnight stay at the vet because I wanted to be with him during the procedure. I don't know why I feel this way. Must be my mother hen instinct, and it makes me feel better knowing I am just outside the vet's door when he comes awake after his surgery. My husband assures me everything will be okay, and Drake will be fine. I know he will be much better. The vet team are good ones and very friendly with Drake when they came this morning to check on him. But my heart goes out to Drake, knowing he is still in pain until we get his nail fixed.              

If I could ask all the angel dogs to let that nail fall off while he sleeps so he doesn't have to go through the procedure, I would.I still got a few hours left until we see the vet. I know everything is going to be alright. An exorbitant bill I don't mind, as long as Drake goes home and gets well. Am I being anxious about nothing?  Oh let me hear your thoughts my BlackLabrador  friends. Woof Woof!
