Deja was in heat several weeks back, she's in tact because we've been contemplating breeding her. She was showing signs of Pyo, a sometimes deadly infection of the uterus that can occur after a heat cycle. We had a scare with Pyo last time and she's had one false pregnancy. That was so sad, she carried stuffed babies around the house like a new Mommy and nudged them and cried, it really was horrible! So we made the decision to have her spayed, I couldn't stand to lose her, so now
if when we get another puppy it will not be one of hers.
After all surgeries a cone must be worn to prevent them from licking the incision. I hate those big bulky cones. They can't really see where they're going and are always bumping into something. I didn't want my walls and cabinets all marked up, not to mention my legs, so I upgraded her to the new deluxe E-collar. This is very Vera Bradley looking, soft and seemingly more comfortable but I have to admit she looks like a walking flower. I couldn't help to think Alice in Wonderland when she came walking out of the recovery room.
I think she hates me now but as close to me as she always is and as easy as I bruise I am thrilled that the back of my legs will not look like I'm beaten! Sometimes I have to put my comfort before the fashion of my dogs.
She really does look like she hates me doesn't she?
Pitiful, funny but pitiful!
Happy Wednesday Y'all!
