Successful surgery!

Big day today. Skootch went for his dental surgery first thing this morning. I got a call midday from Dr. Jeff, telling me that there were no extractions, just lots of scraping and cleaning. Skootchie came through the anesthesia all right. I was so relieved. You just never know. And to top it all off, Dr. Jeff drove Skootch home and delivered him to my door (he lives nearby)! This was a relief, too, because we had a miserable snowstorm today, and the vet is half an hour away from home on a good day - if there's a snowstorm during rush hour it takes HOURS. So Skootch gobbled down his dinner and wanted more. I told him to wait, just to be sure he keeps it down. PHEW.
