whew, it's been a really stressful week, and today was just a real capper- I guess my comments onsite here have been leaning a little negative, sorry 'bout that. Won't bore anyone with the details, just lots of little things that mounded up. But today I took my little Max in for a simple neutering procedure- I'm an ardent believer in both buying only strays/pound dogs and getting them fixed right off. Max is the best dog I've ever had, really. Well, it went from being a simple inpatient visit to a complicate surgery due to one of the testes having migrated to up by his kidneys! So I'll pick him up, dazed and drugged, in the morning and he gets to spent the next week in an Elizabethan-collar (one of those cone-shape things that keep dogs from licking themselves) and being forced some rather nasty pills. Ugh, I got a male dog because I've had difficult complications from having females fixed. Major backfire there. I only hope that one of the sack of pills I'm to give him is something that will let him sleep off most of his recovery time. Awfully good thing we had time to establish a solid trust relationship before this, sigh.
