At First Glance . . .


 . . . I thought the worst. 
Then I paid attention to the relative sizes of the con trails.
 
Willa is home and in good spirits . . . though still a little sleepy from the anesthesia and the tranquilizers the vet gave her. Evidently she didn't like being in a cage.

Belly rubs to Willa. On second thought, better make that head scratch, for now.

Is Willa wearing one of those light-shade affairs, to prevent her from pulling the stitches?

Julienne said...

I bet she is getting lots of attention now....and lapping it up!

A friend just started being a foster mom for kittens, and said they are to have their "fixing" done when they weigh 2 pounds, so then they can go to new owners while still tiny and cute! Just though Willa might like to hear about her cousins...the feline kind. Kuddos to her for having her big surgery.

Willa doesn't have stitches on the outside -- the incision is glued together. It's kind of amazing. So no lampshade, thank goodness.

She's doing great -- back to sleeping between me and John and all's right with Willa World! Yes, she's reveling in the attention!

They really prefer to do the surgeries quite young -- before the first heat because it's safer for the dog (or cat.) And they put a tiny tattoo mark on her belly to indicate that she's been spayed. So, she's fashionable. No piercings though.

Glad to know Willa is doing better.

Glad to hear Willa is doing well. She sure sounds like a little free spirit! Maybe a microchip might have been a good idea too. :-) I keep telling myself with the collie girls that some day all that energy will diminish, but boy they do wear me out. Hears hoping Willa doesn't miss a beat and that you have a great Christmas week.
