Snip, Snip, Snip

Rudy got neutered today and we both survived it. This is the dog that started out being my mother's dog and then I inherited him. She didn't have him neutered because she was too afraid that something would happen to him. Then I wouldn't have him neutered because I was too afraid something would happen to me and he is a very special dog to me for obvious reasons. So when Rudy had to be put under anesthesia to get his stitches 3 weeks ago, I sat in the waiting room crying and waiting for him to die...but he didn't and I realized it was now safe to get him neutered. So he went this morning for the Big Snip. He's doing fine...he has pain pills for tonight and tomorrow...but he is sticking pretty close to me. Tonight is a good tv night, and I think we are going to go get on the bed and stitch all evening. That should keep him kind of calm and quiet and let me spend some time being close to him. It's a good thing I don't have kids. I'd be a permanent nervous wreck.

Poor baby! I'm surprised that he's sticking close to you after you put him through that ;o) Glad to hear it went well though. I'm the same as you. Children would drive me to an early grave. LOL!

Poor Rudy! He may never want to get in the vehicle again. In the last month, his vehicle rides have not been very pleasant for him. A look with those sad but cute puppy eyes would do me in.

Children are not so bad unless they grow up being like Pumpkin - just joking!

Have a great day relaxing with Rudy.

See!!!... He's back safe and sound with you. :o)

Quick recovery to you both.

Kids... that's why I have grey hair, no memory, and stretch marks.

On the other hand... I wouldn't want to be without them :o)
