|Hi, Maribelle, I got spayed on November 15 and bounced back really well. Everything went fine, but mommy worried herself sick because the backyard lost it's grass due to the draught here (and very very bad soil in our area) and I love to lay on my belly on the dirt. She checked my stitches all the time. I love fluffy grass, but we don't have any . I stayed quiet in my crate, but in a couple of days I was wanting to start chasing the cats!
I am going to tell you the hardest part regarding your being spayed, and that is your mommy. My mommy used to look at the string of the stitches on my little belly and, for some reason, it made her very sad and sometimes she cried. Daddy asked her why and she couldn't really put it into words, but what came out was that it broke her heart to see me operated on and cut and hurting. She would come over and hold me and tell me how very sorry she was. Mommy's reallllllyyyy emotional. She's what they call a feeler (psychology...thinker, doer, feeler and...I forgot the last one ... BOL!)
Oh, like others have said, it's really only a couple of weeks. I was so protected that I COULD have been running sooner, but the vet said NO EXERTION for about four weeks. So I couldn't go to the park. They say that I could go after four weeks, but mommy and daddy wouldn't chance it. Anyway, sorry for rambling.
