Happy Valentine's Day, crap!

i felt bad.

she fell in the backyard (& according to my vet) had a seizure
and then we were taking her to the vet and
she had a heart attack! on my lap!
ohh i thought she was dead! :(

by the time we get her into the vet she's basically o.k.
and thankfully she's gonna be o.k.!!
we have to give her some pain pills/heart meds for a few days
and she will survive. she is old. a lil jack russell terrier. like 11? (human years)

i included a picture of her.

That's not cool! but at least she survived and you still have her, she's a cutie!
Don't let her get too excited, and best of luck for a swift and full recovery.

Glad to hear your dog will be ok!
Its a drag that they do not live a longer life.I wish they lived as long as parrots!

I'm so pleased that she's gonna be ok. She looks such a little darling, bless her. They bring us so much unconditional love and are so loyal.
