ROSIE SPENT TWO DAYS IN CAGE AT VETS
Last month there was a thread about what we would do or who would take care of our "furbaby" if something happened to us. Well, I think the opitimal word is "furbaby". I spent these past few days in the hospital again with my husband. Serious heart condition again. Rosie had never been crated, never been away from either of us, treated like a loved companion to the family--not a human baby; but I had never considered boarding her at the Vet's in a cage. However, when it came time to take my husband to Nashvillefor emergency heart stents, I told the office staff to call the Vet and board her. Yes, I knew that she would be put in a cage for the duration; but she would be safe and fed. There was no other option. And, I didn't have time to debate or think about it.
When we got home, she was brought back, dirty (I had asked them not to bathe her because of making mats worse). She ran in just like normal, greeted us and started playing and eating just like normal. No trauma to her little brain, no nothing. As far as she was concerned, she was home and all was well. Ceasar says that balanced dogs that know they are dogs--not humans do fine and he is so right. Just my observations on raising my havanese puppy.
