The Life and Times of a Weimaraner

A Field of Sunflowers

Since we have been home in Moab Rainy had to have yet another surgery but it wasn’t done by our beloved vet Dr. Denney but instead by a local vet who is good mind you but no Dr. Denney. For one he did not put in a drain so her face swelled up and we had to keep taking her in to have it drained. It just would fill back up with fluid and we could not get it to stop. Finally we determined (with the help of Dr. Denney via long distance phone calls) that she was allergic to the sutures. I removed the sutures and we gently forced a Q-tip in the wound and finally the fluid rushed out and she began to heal. She has been great ever since.

To celebrate her new found lease on life we took her to this beautiful field of sunflowers where she ran and ran. Enjoy the photos of her celebration of life.
