Jewel and Willow Get Spayed

Having recently become women, it was time to spay the girls. Our poor babies! We thought it was a simple procedure. Not the case. When it comes to female dogs, their entire feminine insides are removed. Becky dropped the girls off in the morning while Ian picked them up in the afternoon.

First Jewel was brought in. She was mellow and barely acknowledged Ian. Willow, on the other hand, immediately jumped into daddy's arms and started whining. She whined all the way home, and near constantly until 8 am this morning. Jewel, however, has been silent and sleeping nearly the entire time. As if the surgery weren't enough, this weekend, starting yesterday is projected to be in the mid 90s, so last night they had to deal with heat as well. Willow also, had a tooth pulled, so that may explain the extra level of discomfort that Jewel seems not to be experiencing. This picture sums up Willow's expression for the last day and a half. Yesterday she was panting, but today her breath is normal.

Here they are trying to be comfortable. The scars are actually bigger than normal, becuase they had hernias that needed to be repaired.

Jewel is fine as long as she is near one of us. Willow is needing contact. I think they know they are in pain but don't know why. As long as they are with us, they feel safe, so stay calm and quiet.

We have had some fun pictures lately so here are a few to chear us all up. Here is Willow helpping out with the our remodeling of the kitchen pantry.

Another ball shot with Jewel, but shows how long her hair is.

Princess Willow Pillow (our nickname)

And Finally, getting into trouble, or looking for the leashes...

The last picture looks like they are trying to find the Chuck-It to bring to you ... to say, "come on, let's PLAY"
