So Kloe is scheduled to get spayed this week. Of course it’s the right thing to do. And of course it will all be fine. But I have to admit I hate the idea of her going under anesthesia and getting “cut”. It’s my nature to worry. It’s my nature to want to protect those I love from any pain, risk, and discomfort.
And of course she’ll have to wear the “Cone Of Shame” for several days.
Kloe, as most puppies, is very active, loves to run, and loves to thrash around as I like to call it when she throws her body around aimlessly out of sheer joy and jubilation of being a six month old Golden Retriever. This will be the hard part. How in the world will we keep her relatively calm and inactive for the first few days so that she doesn’t bust a stitch?
Like other rights of passage this for Kloe will be a milestone event in her young life as one of the sweetest beings – human or canine – that I have ever met. And the best part is that she is in our life.
I love you Klo’!
