My Katie…

I’m not a dog person, or at least I never cosidered myself to be, until Miss Katie came into my life. She is the sweetest, cutest most well behaved dog I could have ever asked for. She came from an abused home, very wary of other people, quick movements and will go into the belly-up position for any reason at all, but just in the 5 days I’ve had her she has totally come out of her shell. I’ve totally become her mommy, and she is never more than 3 feet behind me as I roam the house doing things. I fell in love with her more quickly than I ever thought I would. She really is my baby girl.
I took her to get spayed today and after running her blood test to see if she was healthy enough to go through the surgery and do well with the anesthesia, they unfortunately found the presence of heartworms. She is being treated, but has to stay on the medication for 2 months in order to get rid of them.
After all my sweet girl has been through, I can’t imagine her having to go through this, too. She’s just getting used to my house and family and now has to stay the night in yet another unfamiliar place.
I know she’s going to get better, but my heart still hurts and I miss my baby. I never thought I’d love her as much as I do, but I do.
Please keep her in your prayers, the fast track treatment isn’t without risks and when she comes home, we have to keep her rested for the next 2 months. Thankfully she’s a mellow dog, but we just want her home and healthy.
Here’s to my Katie Jo and her speedy recovery. And if you feel like it, say a prayer for her momma.
