Surgeon – Chapter Six

A/N: I’m trying to raise $600 to bring another megaesophagus pup into the sanctuary.

Surgeon – Prologue

A/N: I wanted to post this earlier, but between client edits, formats, and sanctuary animals, I’ve got my hands quite full! Anyway, Sunday was Bo’s birthday, and even though I’m not yet done with the rewrite, I can’t help myself. For the first time in a long time, I feel connected to Bo again, andContinue reading “Surgeon – Prologue”
