The Little Dog

My parents' dog is having surgery today for a hernia that is preventing him from doing his business.  He's 14 years old, but the doctor said that he is strong and the prognosis is good.  So, I am a little more relieved than I was yesterday.  Here's his picture...

This is Pookie laying on my couch.

I will keep you posted on his condition.  Please, keep him in your thoughts.

UPDATE 2:36pm:  Pookie came through the surgery just fine and he is awake.  My parents will be picking him up at 8:00 tomorrow morning.
