bottom line
ANYTHING for our Lily...

Love you guys

Pee S.
She had a degenerative disc and major calcium deposits under her spine.
Doc cleaned it all out.
He does not know how she was not in escruciating pain every single single day...


  1. I am glad the doc got her fixed up and she will be home soon to you.
    That sure is a lot of green papers, but WELL worth it. So my guess is $3616 green papers. But I say still worth every green paper to have her well.

  2. OMD, I'm so sorry Lily was hurting all that time and you didn't know it! Goodness. We're sending lots of pawerful vibes for her to get better soon.

    The v-e-t stuff sure builds up quickly, doesn't it? I remember when my sissy had a bunch of exploratory stuff. We were eating canned tuna for months! My guess is... $4013.

  3. OMG! Poor Lily :( We are sending puggy prayers her way. I'm not even sure we can guess but since we have some experience with the emergency vet, we are gonna guess $5,000. Hehe crazy.

    Minnie Moo and Lincoln too

  4. Oh my goodness! I've been behind on reading blogs and did not realize Lily was having surgery. I'm glad she came through the surgery and can begin full recovery. Lily certainly has the right people taking care of her. :)I'm guessing the bill was $4367.

    Tamara + Rupert

  5. Ben, We can see that you're gonna haves to get a couple part time jobs to help pay that bill! We're gonna guess $5725.00.

    Sam and Pippen

  6. Hi Benny and Mama! Wesa hope Lily feels better ASAP. Nows...wesa guess $3856.00 for the grand total of the bill...wesa probably aren't even close if that was the MRI...but wesa don't want you wesa guessed a slightly lower amount.
    Much Luvums,
    The Slimmer Puggums
    George, Gracie, Toby, Lily, and Mimi

  7. I've been reading your blog for awhile, lurking and I just want to let you know that Jadey(My old lady pug) and I are sending you all the good JUJU we can muster!

    We guess 4910 and hope that it isn't actually that high!

    Good luck and get well sweet Lily!

  8. I will be keeping Lily in my thoughts and hope for a speedy recovery. That was very nice of your mom's co-workers to send a care package for Lily. My guess for the bill is $4989.

    Get well soon Lily.


  9. Oh Ben Sweetie...
    We are sending up some mighty BIG prayers for your sweet Lil. I just know she will be licking and kicking again soon. Bless her little heart.

    I know she must have left you a few of her favorite stuffies to keep you company while she is away. Don't worry she will be back before you know it.

    I am guessing this bill is going to be BIG. I think about 8,000. Now a days it is SO expensive. I have a feeling Momma's bank account is not good. You two might need a few bonies in the mail.

    Hugs to you sweet Ben and LOVE to Lil. Prayers, prayers and more prayers. Many hugs and much love, Sherry and Bruiser

  10. OH WOW!! Dogtors sure do cost lots!!!
    Such big numbers for little Lily! So glad she's
    gonna be all better now. That she wasn't showing discomfort just shows what good care of her you and Mama take!

  11. OMD - poor Lily! Sure hope this procedure takes away all of her pain! My guess is $9,500.00 - ouch!

  12. Oh, no, Benny! We got behind with our reading and came back to hear about your sweet Lily!!??!! We'll start praying for her RIGHT now!!! I know you are anxious to have her home with you where she belongs.
    Lily is absolutely priceless. But the surgery, etc? I'll guess an even $5000. And worth every penny.
    Play bows,

  13. Sweet Lily!! My Sweet Spot had a back problem. He was in so much pain one day and carted him off for tests. Resolved itself...mystery, but probably his arthritis. Poor Baby. But Benny is taking such good care - preparing. I guess $6,300.

  14. Poor
    lily and poor Mom's checkbook! But Lily is so worth it. We are going to guess $4588.00.

    Please give Lily some gentle hugs from us.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  15. I'm guessing $3200-ish. Lily is priceless, so it is worth every cent. I cannot stand it when my babies have to stay overnight anywhere away from me... it sounds like Lily is in very good hands so that is good to know! Vets don't generally charge much more than the estimates (in my experience), so I am hoping it is just slightly above 2500 and no more than 3500!

  16. Poor Lily I hope she is home with you soon, I bet you miss her so much. I guess her bill will be about $6,650 but she is worth every penny whatever the cost. If it's any consolation our vets here in the UK are sooo expensive as well. Take care.

  17. We are having a hard time guessing as it seems prices are different across the US. Since it is around $600 for cleaning teeth here, my guess is $4,395.

  18. Hope Ms. Lilly feels all better soon and can go tearing around the house per usual! :) Our guess is $4950 total.

  19. Glad to hear the doc was able to find what was wrong with Lily, and hopefully make her feel better. I am going to guess the bill was $4650.

  20. Woof! Woof! Glad Lilly is coming home soon. It's a lot ... Anything for our DOG. hope the final bill was not much as the estimated cost so our guess is 2888. Happy Wednesday! Lots of Golden ALOHA n Woofs, Sugar

  21. Oh Blimey, it's a good job she's so loved! Glad she's getting better. We think $7227. Deccy x

  22. Oh poor Lily! I'm so glad she is all fixed up! I bet you can't wait to get her home and pamper her....some more! You know you want to Benny! My guess is $5200.00.

  23. Oh Lily... we've been praying for you. Based on the estimate for the MRI, I'm going to guess that Lily's final bill was $6,850. We know how much those surgeries cost bc we thought I had to go down that road. Even without surgeries - my bill is almost $6000! But, the momma says the same thing... anything for the Corbin. My paws are crossed and we'll continue to pray for Lily's safe and quick recovery!

  24. OMD Benny!!! Poor Lily! I hope this will fix all that ails her. If the MRI could be as high as $2500 and WE KNOW that does not include SURGERY and DR visit. . . I am guessing the bill rounds out about $5162 (heehee, that's kinda the DATE today - I really have not idea).
    Love Noodles

  25. Woof to you Benny!!!! Your Lily is one tough girl. My mother and I are going to guess approximately $8000 for Lily's surgery. That may seem high, but we're jaded when it comes to vet costs after spending many small fortunes for vet procedures in NYC. Please keep us posted re all developments concerning precious Lily's recovery! Much love to you and your mom - XXOO - Mazzie

  26. Oh dear......I finally get a chance to stop by and see that Lily has had some major surgermy. I won't guess the final cost other than it will be A LOT. I can only hope that my PUs would do the same as yours if'n it was necessary. (I think they would)

    I hope that Lily's recovery time is short and she feels much better ASAPee!!!

    Woofs and healin'' slobbers,
    Chester ;0=)

  27. 3.900 chewies. But she is soooo worth it. Scoping my momma, yaaa, she would do it for me, I think... I hope, better go kiss up, kisses to sweet Lily from all of us

  28. Oh that Lily is so brave. I'm glad she is getting treatment to feel better. My guess is the total bill will be 4401. ouch!

  29. Poor Lily, it must have been terrible for her. Those toys are so sweet from your mum's friends.
    Wishing you a speedy recovery Lily!
    Yikes, if Mum got a vet bill like that we think she would probably faint!
    Dip Bridge and Elliot x

  30. Hopefully this will enable Lily to be pain-free for life. Beautiful girl is such a trooper. I am sure Mr. Benny is missing lady so much. Love and healing vibes to the whole family. I would have to guess that with everything it was between 5 to 6000. Animal care isn't cheap but we do anything for our babies in need!

  31. I am glad that she is all fixed up now. I bet she will be glad to get home as much as you will be to have her home. Ok, our guess is....5,372.39 for the total. We figured it all up to the penny BOL


  32. Dear Benny, I had back surgery 2 years ago, and it made a big difference in how well I felt. Pretty soon your sweet Lily will be home to snuggle with you. Just don't let her romp too much at first.

    xoxo Marjie

  33. Sweet Benny we can only imagine the pain you had.
    We want to send special shout out to the Vet who took care of you. I see your Mom has a blanket all ready for your safe return home. All your friends in blogville are so happy you feel much better now.
    We know your worth a million and more. But we will give a guess and say $5,709.96
    ♥ and Huggies

  34. I'm so glad Miss Lily is feeling better. My guess is $5500 (and worth every penny, I'm sure). Can you pay the vet in dog toys & chew bones??

  35. Wow Benny, your Lily is one lucky girl!! I sure hope she's getting better fast so she can enjoy all those toys! I know when Skye spent 3 days in the hospital it was about $4,000. So my guess is Miss Lily racked up a $6999.99 bill- but she's totally worth it!

  36. We're all keeping our paws crossed and waiting impatiently for Miss Lily to come home. We're guessing $ 6, 247.53. Those vet bills add up really fast. We can prove it.
    Morgan and the Porties

  37. $4,417.00*****shudder**** Like you said though, Lily is worth every penny. Though you might want to start working the wedding circuit doing DJ jobs for kibbles Benny :)

    Could you let us all know more details about the back surgery? Us nerds want to know. What will this mean for her physical cababilities now?

  38. omg
    i hope,you will have your darling sister back soon.we are sooo sorry,that she had to stand all that pain.all our fingers and paws are crossed for your family.
    perhaps the doctor wants to have 4,200 dollars?
    kisses and hugs
    anni,the foxbrothermomma

  39. We're gonna guess $5432.10 ...

    Like everyone else said - Lily is priceless! Tell her we are thinking about her, Benny, and give her a kiss for us when you see her!

    Love Zoe, Peyton, Webster & Liberty

  40. Our guess is "IT DOSEN'T MATTER", it's all the love and care your peeps and puppy friends give, and your concerns and help to make her well.
