I had arthroscopic knee surgery last Thursday, which went very, very well. In the recovery room, the nurse asked if I needed anything, and I said, "I could use a puppy." She laughed, and we kinda kept going with that theme throughout the rest of the hour or so I spent in the recovery area.
I wound up going to spend a couple days w/friends. John had offered to drive me to surgery and then have me spend at least the night w/him & his lady friend.
I hobbled into their door ~ and there they were, two puppies! Well, one is an adult dog, but I'm going with the puppy theme.
These 2 mixed breeds were so sweet and cuddly, I was in heaven. Swear to whoever is up there, it helped me feel much better, much faster. Both Lola & Ruffles curled up with me, put their little furry heads on my shoulder and sighed heavily with contentment. As did I.
