This item clarifies something I wrote earlier, right after we acquired a Chihuahua mix dog from someone who lives down the street and around the corner.
I had written that Toby had been neutered. I was mistaken.
His “equipment” was not as readily visible as I had thought. We took him to the doctor’s office for his first going-over and she noticed he had his tools. “Do you want to neuter him?” she asked. “Yes,” I said.
Well, we did it this past week. We took him and removed his malehood from his little body.
The result? No change in his disposition. We had been told he might be a little, um, moody once we got him home. That has not been the case with Toby. He’s as frisky as ever. We leave the room for 45 seconds room, return and he acts as though we’ve been apart for a month.
Well, since we consider ourselves to be responsible pet owners, we’re glad we had this deed done.
With this post, I think I’ll scale back on the “puppy tales” entries. You know how this is going already. We’re glad we have this marvelous addition to the family.
Our 12-year-old cats, truth be told, are slowly beginning to adapt to life with a new little brother among us.
I’ll let you know if major developments occur along the way.
