Welcome to Cranky Puppy Farm!

This blog belongs to two Gen X-er's smackdab in downtown Kansas City where we've been renovating and decorating two old Victorians built in the 1890's. Our life is filled with 3 demanding Pomeranians (1 of them cranky, of course), honking cars, noisy neighbors and the hustle and bustle of city life but we dream of the day when we can move to our 40-acre farm and hear nothing but the wind and the cows next door. Until then, we're chronicling our triumphs and mishaps here as we try to garden and preserve on 2 city lots, raise chickens, and learn all those things we should have learned from our grandparents. Welcome to our world - we hope you'll stay awhile!

One Worried Puppy

Wednesday, July 09, 2014

Domino, our beautiful and much-loved rapscallion "puppy" (he's 8!) went to the vet yesterday and had to stay.  I am beside myself with worry, because we just learned that he has to have the same surgery that he had 4 years ago to remove stones from his bladder and urethra.  According to the vet, an x-ray shows that he has one the size of a nickel in his bladder.  Poor little guy!  He only weighs 18 pounds, so that's a pretty big stone!

Despite being on special food to prevent the stones, he's gotten them again.  The vet did warn us 4 years ago that it was a probability that it would happen, but I had my hopes up.  The $800 for the vet bills will do a number on our budget.  Some might say it's insane to spend that kind of money on a pet but look at it this way....would you spend it on your kids?  Well, he's my baby!  And the alternative is to do nothing and, well......  the outcome there is not good.

Please cross your fingers and send good mojo in Domino's direction today, if you can.  He's a scrapper and I'm sure everything will be fine, but I can't bear to think of losing my sweet pup-pup.


  1. Poor little guy! We'd spend it on our fur kids too...They are our children!

  2. I do hope Domino is feeling better soon!
