Spayed and Proud

4-25-17 Remember back when I got my final vaccinations and momma filled out a "Surgical Consent Form" for a "Spay Surgery".  Well momma finally told me what it all means as she was taking away my food and water bowls.  Hey, what if I needs a midnight snack or sip of water? I could die from thirst-y-ness and food-less-ness! 

 She told me as puppies get to a certain age/size, as determined by their veterinarian, they qualify to be spayed or neutered.  She went on to say spaying and neutering means that we are no longer able to have puppies.  Which sounds like a good thing.  I can barely keep up with all my toys, let alone a whole litter of puppies!


4-26-17   When we woke up on Wednesday morning momma had not put my bowls back out and even forgot to feed me breakfast.  How could this happen?  Then instead of putting me in my kennel so she could go to work we got in the car for a bye bye ride.  I thought she lost her mind!  We ended up at Flanary Vet Clinic.

This is my skeptical face.

We walked inside and she put in a kennel in the isolation room.

You will NEVER believe what she did....she shut the door and  left me!

 After what seemed like days (edit by momma: 1 hour) the clinic staff came in, stole my blood and poked me in the hind quarters!
After that I don't really remember much....I felt very sleepy.  zzzZZZzzzZZZzzz

 *Here is a dramatic re-enactment of the events that occurred while I was sleeping.*

When I woke up I had a scar on my tummy and a lampshade on my head.  After a few more long days (edit by momma: 8 hours) momma returned to pick me up.  I gave her my most pittyful face and puppy cries to let her know I didn't like this at all! 

Before we left look what happened!  I got to use this cool machine.  Its a microchip reader.  Seems while I was under anesthesia they also microchipped me.  Now if I get lost all the vet clinic/animal shelter has to do is scan me, my unique number comes up and they can contact momma.  So now I am a robot puppy.  That's pawsome!

I am proud to be spayed and proud to not contribute to the pet over population problem we have here in the US.  Now I can focus all my attentions on my toys, tricks and playtime! 

Robot Puppy Growls,
