View Full Version : Dottie being spayed this morning

10th July 2008, 04:28 PM
I just dropped off my precious girl at the vets for her spay. She happily trotted into the exam room, leaving her grieving mom (aka ME) behind. She has been under anaesthesia twice before (for MRI and a myringotomy for PSOM) and bounced right back, so I know she can handle the meds. However, I am pacing the floor.

I know she will be just fine, but I am so used to my morning routine of coffee, newspaper and warm doggie curled on my lap that I am going through major withdrawals!

I think I will go shopping for her onesie and maybe to a movie or walk on the beach. I can't stand hanging around in the house without those melting eyes looking up at me. I miss my happy little shadow! :(

Brian, good thoughts and prayers for little Rosie going in for her spay too!!! WIll be waiting for a full report!!

This has been a very long day. The vet just called and said Dottie came through her spay just fine. He also had to repair a small umbilical hernia and he said that went well too, but her scar will be longer than it would have been otherwise.

I will be picking her up in about an hour or so. My hubby and I will be moving downstairs into the guest room so Dottie won't be tempted to climb the stairs, and also the bedroom slider leads right out into the backyard area if she has to go potty in the night.

I picked up several sizes of onesies that I think will fit her. I wish I had done this before the surgery, tried them on and got her used to them beforehand. Oh well....

I will be sitting here counting the minutes until she is back home.
