As you know, I had my BIG GIRL OP today. Mummy and daddy arranged for me to have it by keyhole surgery to reduce scarring, pain and recovery time. They dropped me in to the vets in the morning, confirmed all the details, kissed me goodbye and off they went to wait for the call to say they could pick me up.
But things didn’t go to plan. During my ‘routine’ op a needle broke inside of me. The surgeon said that has never happened before. And of course he was unable to retrieve the broken needle. So guess what? Yep, they had to open me up to get it! Meaning that mummy and daddy’s well thought-out plans to avoid a me having big scar failed miserably.
I’ve been scalped, I’m on antibiotics and I keep being told ‘no’ everytime I try to lick myself. I’m ridiculously close to having to wear a cone of shame:-( The only plus point is that I’m on a diet of chicken and rice -yum!
Hopefully i’ll be back to normal soon. In the meantime I’m going to go head back to sleep. Night all.
Today mummy didn’t go to work, instead she took me to the vets – I can hear some of you cringing already! But it was just for a check-up and my vets is in Pets at Home so I love going because I get cuddles and treats, and maybe a new toy on the way out:-)
The main reason for the visit is that on Thursday I’m having my BIG GIRL OP and I had to be checked over. Mummy explained that this means I won’t be able to have puppies. But I’m still a puppy myself and I’m far too young to be a mummy, so that’s fine with me! Some of mummy’s friends tried to talk her into breeding me (yuck!), but mummy thinks there are already far too many doggies in shelters looking for good homes and if they want a dog they should adopt one.
If I did have puppies and mummy couldn’t find decent homes for the mini-Misaki’s we’d have to keep the unwanted ones and they’d probably try to sleep on my armchair, play with my toys and eat my food – oh the horror!! Plus mummy and daddy only have two hands each, how will I get my fill of bellyrubs and ear scratchings with 6 or 7 mini-Misakis’ taking up their time and attention??
Mummy says there are also lots of health benefits for me ‘being done’ but most of all it means no more seasons and therefore no more being stuck under house arrest. Sounds good to me!
So please keep your paws crossed for me on Thursday. Mummy says it’s all very standard and I should be back to normal within a couple of days. And best of all she’s taking a few days off work to stay home with me while I recover. Overall I can’t complain!
Have you had your big girl or boy op?
