pardon the grainy cell pic
We took him into our regular vet this morning for x-rays and further examination, and I just got word that it doesn't look like he'll need surgery. The emergency vet did a really good job of setting and splinting the break. We haven't fully discussed what sort of punishment to carry out, but she spent most of the night in tears and apologizing to the dog. I just really hope, that she has learned some sort of lesson.
So, go hug your kids (the furry and non-furry kind) and remember to keep your cool! If I can do it, you can to.
