Meet Our Newest Family Member

Meet “Ashes,” a beautiful puppy that we gave to The Little Write Gal for her 8th birthday.  We just got him last Saturday and two days later poor Ashes broke his leg in two places.  He had to have surgery because the break was so bad – he broke the radius and the ulna.  The fine vet surgeons at Carolina Veterinary Specialists fixed him right up.  If you live in NC and ever need emergency treatment for your pet you should definitely go there.  Ashes has to wear a cast for two weeks until his stitches come out.  We have to put a little doggie boot on the cast when he goes outside to keep it dry.  He also has to wear an Elizabethan collar to keep him from seeing his foot and chewing on it.

Ashes is a rat terrier and only weighs 5 pounds at the moment.  His cast is bigger than he is!  He should only get to be about 18 pounds fully grown.  You can see in this picture of Carrie Underwood and her rat terrier, Ace, what a full grown “rattie” looks like.   Get well soon Ashes!
