ABC Wednesday - Dolphin




ABC Wednesday – D is for Dolphin

If you are here for Wordless Wednesday scroll down one post, please.

Short post toady. These are some Dolphin photos I took in Las Vegas in 2006. Here is a link to the best photo of the bunch. I swear this particular Dolphin knew I had a camera.

D is also for dog. Last night one of my dogs had to have her spleen removed since there was bleeding tumor on it. Of course last night was one of the worst weather nights we have had around here all winter. After deciding on doing the surgery we needed to have some blood for a transfusion and couldn’t get any. Lucky Molly’s sister is a healthy 70 pound Border Collie and was able to give enough blood to have the operation. They aren’t really sisters but do lover each other deeply so it was nice to see Ruby helping her out. The surgery went well but there is still a good chance she may die. We had to transfer her to the emergency vet (so there someone watching her all night) for observation at 10 o’clock last night in the blowing snow and freezing rain. I have to bring back to the regular vet today at 8 am and we will have a better idea of what is going on. I am on my way now, of course it is raining cats and dogs. I hoping for the best but have steeled myself for the worse also.



Sorry if this slightly incoherent. Molly is awake and doing okay for now! I am going to try and visit at least a few ABCer's today but probably won't get to everybody.

I didn't actually watch it but there was a TV prog recently about how dolphins will come to the aid of other creatures.

They have a caring attitude and mayve something of that will come through and help your dog recover.

Beautiful Dolphins, the photos are superb!

Gentle hugs for your Molly. I do hope the surgery eases things for her, and she can be comfortable. Hugs for you, too.

These are really stunning pictures. I took my grandson to see the dolphin show in Port Elizabeth late last year. They are truly amazing animals and such characters.
