Ivy on the porch showing off her shaved side
This blog is a chronicle of my thoughts and photographs pertaining to the two TPLO surgeries that Ivy, my Labrador Retriever had performed on February 11, 2008 by Dr. Robert Pernell of Coastal Carolina Veterinary Specialists, N. Charleston, SC and on October 9, 2008 by Dr. Jeff Stallings of Tidewater Veterinary Surgery, Virginia Beach, VA. Ivy is a 7 year old, 63 pound, spayed female yellow Labrador Retriever. She is one very brave dog.
Her favorite snack is still Frosty Paws. She laws on the floor with it, closes her eyes, and just licks it away.
For entertainment, she loves watching the video of her friend's rescue pups!
She really does enjoy those green beans!

I am a photography enthusiast and I am indeed fortunate that many of my photos of native birds and wildlife have appeared in local publications. For the last several years, my photos of local Virginia Beach Bald Eagles have appeared in the Garden of Eagles calendar, an international publication. My husband Joe and I live on the Signature at West Neck with our two dogs, Mocha and Frodo.
