I have a sick dog living at the vet clinic. He had emergency surgery earlier this evening, and by the time he was awake, the day staff was ready to go home, so I didn't impose and demand to see him. He's been there since midday Wednesday and I miss the little guy. On top of which, the prognosis is still pretty guarded, so I will have one of those sleepless nights, praying that the phone doesn't ring.
Being optimistic, I am planning on calling them first thing and asking when I can come give the little fella a skritch. I realize that it is more important to me than him, but I need something to look forward to.
