Sorry to check in late. Sola has been recovering from surgery for two weeks.

In January Sola went in to heat. That would not be a big deal had she not been spayed a year earlier. Yes, that is not right.

The Patient Recovers

The veterinarian who performed the spay left behind ovarian remnants. More than one. Judging by the jar of tissue I observed (after this sugery) it seems her spay was a hack job.

Nigel: Jerks!

Author: Right on. So we ditched our vet of the last decade for a new one. Good choice - Sola is doing well, looks like she should be fine. We are relieved, and our adventures will resume shortly. Very shortly ;)

    Glad to see you all back. Tell that vet to go to hell!

  2. Jeezopete! That's ridiculous. Sending good healing thoughts to Sola.

  3. OMIGOODNESS! What a terrible thing to happen! We had a similar experience with a poodle mix we adopted from the shelter--we were told she was spayed, but a few months later she went into heat. The person who surrendered her to the shelter lied about her condition! We're hoping that Sola has a speedy recovery. (BTW-your antics with the neighbor are very amusing!)

    Poor, poor girl! I'm glad she's doing better. Give her lots of hugs from WI!

    Lots of hugs and kisses to Sola! Get well soon little girl!

  6. Poor Sola!

    Glad to hear she's feeling better now, she'll be back into mischief in no time and Nigel will be asking them to put it back in so they can take it out again...

    Dear Sola!

    Please accept all kisses from our family, and especially from Steela and Solly. We know, you will be well in a few days! Hope Mr and Mrs Author treat you well and bring you the best pieces before they have dinner.
