On My Mind...

Joining Rhonda in letting you know what is on my mind today....

I am thinking about planned and unplanned expenses.  No matter how careful you are with your money there are just some things you can't forsee.  Monty started limping Wednesday night.  Thursday morning I took him to the vet - he had torn his anterior cruciate ligament in one of his hind legs.  The Vet advised surgery; without it the problem would just get worse.  

Monty went under the knife this morning.  An unexpected $840 later, he has a prothesis in his leg and is lying in the portacot feeling miserable - we have put him in there to keep him away from Ginger while he recovers.  Turns out it can keep the baby in, or out!


  1. oh poor little fella! And i know what you mean when those unexpected expenses come up! grhhh! hope Monty makes a speedy recovery and doesn't cost you anymore xx

  2. Yes, pet expenses never come at a great time, but I'm glad Monty is on the mend.

  3. Ah, how terrible! I hope the poor pup heals quickly! He is blessed to have such kind humans to looks after him!

  4. Hope Monty recovers 100% . Good thinking with the portacot as you can have him where ever you are to keep an eye on him while he recovers.

  5. AH Poor Monty. I hope and pray for his recovery; he is ADORABLE!
