Our dog Holly

Today we took our yellow Lab Holly to the vet. She has been limping and favoring her paw since Thursday and at the time we said we would watch it for a day or two and if there was no change we would take her to the vet. I was able to schedule the appointment for today (thank goodness). The doctor checked it, said it was swollen and administered Lidacaine. The way she yelped just broke our hearts. Of course I started to cry, but, at the same time praising her, telling her that she was a good girl and that we loved her. E with his torn rotator cuff is lifting her onto the table with his good arm and holding her down. I know he is in pain for himself, feeling her pain too, but, he is also praising her and telling her he loved her. The doctor said that it was an infection. Holly was prescribed to oral antibiotics that work together and a topical antibiotic. We take her back next week so the doctor can take a look at it.

Holly is such an amazing dog. She is full of so much love, so smart, funny, full of life, so obedient and just loves to play. When she sleeps, she looks like she did when we brought her home when she was 3 months old. We so treasure her and she is spoiled and deserves to be spoiled. She has her therapeutic beds from LL Bean with her name embroidered on both of them.

I will keep you posted on her progress after her visit next week. Have a great day.


  1. Holly looks so much like my Mugsy (half yellow lab). I totally get where you're coming from. It's so hard to see them in pain. I hope she bounces back quickly!

  2. Thank you havfaith. I love your pics of Mugsy & Reilly. They are so sweet. I also love the photographs you take. You have a really great eye. I enjoy reading your blog and will be stopping by. Have a great night!!

  3. Sweet Holly, bless her heart. Hope she's feeling better soon!

  4. Liz, Thank you so much for your kind words. She is actually feeling a lot better with the antibiotics and the topical E is putting on her paw. I will post an update this evening. Thanks again!!!
