Busy day! I didn't set myself up for a good Blog posting last night, as I was too busy researching red mites, which apparently have infected my hydrangea and azaleas. We got rain last night (yeah!) but it came with thunderstorms, which meant the dogs didn't sleep very well (so we didn't sleep very well). And this morning, I was out of the house at the crack of dawn to take Miss Chanel in for her spay and teeth cleaning.
I am happy to say the little girl is recovering nicely. Yes, she looks a little dopey in her post-op picture (the one above) but we should cut the poor girl a break. She did very well and I am thrilled to pieces that she will not be used for breeding anymore! Chanel also managed nicely through a 2-hour Adoption Day yesterday, full of meeting lots of nice people but also lots of loud noises. A little overwhelming... but she did great. She is still looking for her forever home (but her Foster Mommy is picky too).
Now for my PSA: Chanel had several cysts on her ovaries- not a problem now as they (her ovaries) are gone. But did you know that one of the benefits of spaying/neutering your pet is that it significantly reduces the chance of cancer (specifically, mammary gland, ovarian, uterine, OR testicular and prostrate disease) ? Add to that the help in reducing the pet overpopulation and it's a total win win.
Back soon with my quest for home organization. Not just utilitarian- pretty!
