Well, last week the time came for surgery. One morning, the hyper three year-old lab went outside and just sat down. No running around, no barking at mysterious creatures in the woods. She just sat there, a sure sign something was wrong. Took her to vet, they took an x-ray, and sure enough, a belly full of rocks. They really wanted to avoid surgery, but after 24 hours the rocks were still there. Into surgery she went. Everything went well, and we are now the proud owner of an $800 baggie of 8 rocks.
Good thing she's cute.
