Poor, Poor Skylar

Again. This first pictures is from yesterday. She has a hematoma in her right ear. See how it hangs lower than the left ear?



We just got back from the vet. She has a tube in her ear to let it drain. She also had her left canine pulled. Actually, it wasn't pulled; it was cut out. The root was coming out the side. It was just a thin layer of gum left. He lanced the gum and cleaned it out that way. The vet said he had never seen that before.

Chili is trying to tell her she hopes she feels better soon. Bless poor Skylar's heart. She is also having some arthritis problems,also. You really have to be tough to go old. I know.
