Ah, Nuts

My precious boys are getting neutered today. Apollo will be 1 year old on the 26th -- what a birthday present! Tesla is 11 months. Our contract with the breeder stated we had to wait until they were a year old before neutering. There's evidence it's healthier to wait. I emailed her and asked if it would be okay to get the boys done at the same time, because recovery would be easier if they were both recovering at the same time. She agreed.

Bob and Thomas got up at 5:30, left the house at 6:30 and had he boys to the vet by 7:45. The vets here, there are two, are worth the drive.

We pick them up tomorrow. I imagine I'll be calling a couple times this afternoon to see how they're doing.

It sure is quiet without our border collies here!

Thomas is taking a nap until 10:30 and then we'll get busy with school.

Oh, yes. Neutering is fun. My cats never seemed to mind, but our dog was pretty upset by the loss of his "nuts". However, I think my dog secretly wished he was a girl anyhow.

Wow! I can't believe that nearly a year has gone by since you got your puppies!

Oy! I hope they recover quickly and well!

Every animal we have ever owned, save one Labrador Retriever, has been neutered. Bob Barker was a huge advocate for snipping your animals, and I am in total agreement.

Your title made me giggle. :)

Hope your boys recover quickly and suffer no loss in dignity in the process.
