here is Atticus on the first evening home after her spay.
she was still pretty much out of it but comfortable.
(as comfortable as lying on a nylabone can be...)
we'd put a bucket collar on her but she went crazy! i was so concerned that she'd rip her stitches open i took it off. she was throwing herself around in a panic.
so OH was sent to the supermarket to buy some preemie onesie vests which i put on back to front and they work wonderfully well.
(interesting note - the first night after surgery, Atticus howled in her sleep.
ALL night. not horribly loud, but loud enough!
i put it down to the anaethesia.)
