Maggie Is Home!!!!!!

We just brought Maggie home from the veterinarian and we couldn't be happier! She's doing just fine and is running around like nothing happened.

We had picked up one of her favorite treats for her, a rawhide chew bone. She doesn't eat them, just carries them around the yard in her mouth and whines until she finds the best spot to bury them. There must be twenty or more of them buried all over. Can you see her little bandage? They had to shave her leg for the i.v..

We cannot thank all of you enough for all the prayers and well wishes on her behalf. The outpouring of love and concern has been overwhelming and very much appreciated. The blogger community is generous and loving and I am so proud and grateful to be a part of it. We'd also like to thank the staff at the Modesto Emergency Veterinary Hospital who rapidly assessed the situation and gave her immediate, loving attention. Her continued care was given by our regular veterinarians at the Escalon Small Animal Clinic. It says a lot when your animals love to go to the vet and are not a bit frightened. They have always treated Maggie like family.

This ordeal has been difficult for us as we are Maggie's caretakers and we feel we let her down on some level. Our promise is to be even more diligent to assure her continued safety and well being as an integral part of our family. I don't know what I would do without her.

Maggie sends her love and thanks as well!!!

Awww, look how sweet she looks! I'm so happy she's home safely Miss Jean. And I'll tell you what says alot about you as caretakers -- you let her bury those bones in your backyard -- now THAT's a loving family!!!

Oh Yeah!!!!! I'm SO glad this had a happy ending! I know you are over the moon to have your sweet Maggie back home again.

I am so happy for Maggie and for you. I would be devastated if anything like that happened to Ladybug. I wonder if that is a Scottie trait to carry their chew bones around and whine until they find a good hiding spot. Bug does that also. She had one that she moved from spot to spot for a couple of months and then all of a sudden gave it a chew. Funny.

We are all so pleased to hear that our Miss Maggie is home and doing great. And she looks so sweet with her bone.

Don't you dare feel bad about anything that happened - your reaction time saved Maggie's life - and you did all you could to help your sweet girl. These things happen - and can happen at any time to any of us.

She looks quite happy to be home, and have a new bone too! Glad she was ok!

Michele McLaughlin said...

She looks really happy! So glad there was a happy ending and she is home safe and sound!

Aren't you just the pretty angel face - even with that huge bone in your mouth! Now be sure and hide this one really good so brother Doogie doesn't sniff it out!

Jean, never feel like you let her down. God spoke to your heart that morning and took you to the place you needed to see. Because of His intervention, you were able to get Maggie the care she needed.

God Bless all of you,

Hi Jean,
Oh thank goodness! Maggie is well! Sweet little thing..
One day Gary and I will have another pet. We still miss our "Kona Dog" she pasted three years ago. We are just not home enough with our compute being so long to have a pet at this time. So for now we get to play with our daughters dog and my Sisters.
Have a sweet day and big hugs for you and a rub behind the ears for little Maggie~Elizabeth

Oh, what a scare you had, Jean. I just read about it. I'm glad all is well. Hugs to you and to Maggie.

So glad you are home.

Oh Jean, that is good news. Maggie I am glad you are back home. Mom should change your name to Raisin! sandi

What a stinker, she looks like nothing happened at all and giving you such a scare! Praise God for Vet's but not their bills. ha ha

Oh please do not blame yourself we have 3 1/8th dogs and they have eaten a whole chocolate cake and tub of frosting and underwear and who knows what else so I always keep the vets number handy and our future daughter in law is a vet tech so now we have a expert available at all hours. The only one who has not eaten anything bad is the 1/8th (chihuahua) because she can't reach the counters. I always forget about them reaching the counter tops and my husband has even lost his dinner if he is not ready when I call him and I get called away from the table maybe they are working together because usually it is one of them that distracts me. So glad she is doing good and home. Love your blog.
