Rhett's going to get "tutored" tomorrow
D day is upon us. Rhett is 6.5 months and has lost all his baby teeth, so it's time.
He'll go in tomorrow morning and have his pre-op blood work done and then his surgery around noon. The plan is to keep him over night (they do have a vet tech there all night) and release him in the morning. He'll also get microchipped while he is under anesthesia.
I know he will be in good hands, but I'm still nervous. Keeping him quiet for the next 10 days will be difficult with Scarlett.
Evidently though, all my "spay and neuter your pets" talk has sunk in to my 10 year old. I over heard her talking to her friend yesterday on the porch telling them that "tutored" dogs are healthier, better behaved, etc.
Don't get your knickers in a knot. Nothing is solved and it just makes you walk funny.

Keeping good thoughts for Rhett's tutor tomorrow. It's nice to know the kids are listening and learning. They are our hope for the future.

Aww, I'm sure he'll do fine, he'll be in good hands. And good for him for losing all of his baby teeth, one less thing to recover from.
Life is merrier with a Yorkshire Terrier!

Good luck with Rhett and his "tutoring" lol. My Bronx just got tutored 2.5 weeks ago and it wasn't near as bad as I thought! the first day is rough because he was so groggy, but you won't have to worry about that because he is staying there all night. After that, he was back to his normal self! He wore the E-collar and very quickly adjusted to it. It deterred him from doing his normal things which was good because he had to be kept quiet for 10 days anyway. That was tough though, he was ready to run and jump but we just tried to avoid walking or playing with him. By the end of day 8 or 9 he was like, enough is enough I need to play! Good luck and my thoughts will be with you.

Aww. Best wishes to Rhett for a successful and uneventful surgery. I feel guilty every time I send one of mine in for spay and neuter ~ even though I know it's the right thing to do. It's still scary and you don't want them to be in pain.
Hang in there mama!

good luck on the tutor...it's funny because the lady from the shelter we work with always says tutor and this is the first person other than her that's used that word instead LOL

Sending prayers for Rhett's tutor today. Sounds like you have a very smart, wonderful daughter.
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. -- Author Unknown

I'm sure he'll be fine. I know how scarey it is though.
