Post Doo-dad Chop

Well, just as predicted, I (we actually) got neutered yesterday. I was very brave. I listened to what my friends told me and realized that if my mom and dad didn't love us, they would not have had this procedure done. But the best part is that now we are all done with everything! We have all our vaccines, are micro-chipped, neutered, and licensed! We have lots of dog tags jingling now! The doctor said to take it easy and not romp around for at least 5 days. Even in our groggy state, when Stanley and I heard that we looked at each other and asked,

 "Yikes! Is that even possible?"

Mom and Dad broke out in a sweat when they heard those instructions. We spent quite a bit of time in our kennels yesterday.  The doctor said it would be a good idea for us to sleep in them last night but mom and dad said we would not follow that rule.  "That's just crazy talk," mom said.  So we slept on the bed and had a good night's sleep.  Today we are feeling pretty good. Mom reminded us what the doctor said:

NO RUNNING!
NO STAIRS!
NO JUMPING!
NO WRESTLING!
NO GETTING WET!


I have to give mom and dad credit, they are really trying to keep us "quiet".  But we are 4 month old puppies so "quiet" may not be so quiet.  So far we have run all over the house, gone up and down some stairs, jumped 5,293 times, and wrestled for 10,843 minutes.  To our credit, we haven't run on the hillside (but it is early yet), licked our incisions (maybe 7 times), or gotten wet.  So now we just decided we'd better crawl under mom's desk and take our morning nap.


Because in the afternoons we tend to get really crazy.

Howdy Murphy and Stanley, good on you fellas. We had our operations on the same day too but Stella was a little worse for wear than me. She took a bit longer to recover and yes, we were naughty and wanted to run and jump and play chewy face cause we were both pups too. Try and take it easy if you can. Hugs to you both. No worries, and slobber, Rory and Stella

Hey Murphy & Stanley!
Wow, you got your big boy bobble-ectomy! I still give my Dad a guilt trip once in awhile over this one. Alas, you'll miss your missing parts less and less as time goes on. Be sure to milk this for all of the treats, toys and scritches you can!! BOL I'm sending you both some healing vibes so you get back to 100% (minus a few parts) soon!
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Hi boys, You two seem to be doing much better than Hunter. Today is the second day and I figured he'd be doing so good; his energy is back to normal but he is whining continually. I know he has a low pain tolerance but I feel so bad for him. Any positive thoughts would be appreciated.
Wags, Noreen & Hunter
