Under the Knife

The pup went in for her population control surgery on Wednesday and we brought her home again yesterday morning. She seems to be doing quite well recovery wise. The incision was about 1.5 inches long and is closed with three layers of internal dissovable sutures – no stitches that need to be removed. Her belly is shaved, as is a spot on her left front leg where they put in the IV. The nurses at the vet hospital put a little bandana on her – cute!

The only problem is that while staying overnight at the vet hospital, she got the runs. The guess is that this was probably due to stress (of being away from home) and will pass quickly – I hope it does.

Here are some photos from the last month or so. She’s in that gangly teenager stage right now – kinda funny lookin. 🙂
