Pain Killed Puppy

On Thursday we took Ricochet into the vet to get spayed and had her dew claws taken off. That's why she has two little bandages on her back feet. Since neither Jesse nor I have ever taken care of a pet after they come out of surgery, we had no idea what to expect. When we went to pick her up from the vet she was yelping, barking, and pretty much out of control. When we got her home, we noticed that she was kinda walking aimlessly around the apartment. She would be sitting on the couch and the next thing we knew she was whining her way into the bathroom, lied on the floor mat and was out. So to keep her calm until the anesthesia wore off, we spoiled her.

She wandered into our bedroom. It was almost scary seeing her drugged up, we didn't know what she was going to do next.

Jesse trying to comfort her and keep her calm until she started acting more like herself.

She looked very scared and not with it.

Under her princess blanky :) What a cutie

It was funny seeing our puppy with our last name!

Still looking scared and not really knowing who we are.

As soon as the anesthesia wore off, it was like she was a completely different puppy. She is very active and doesn't mind the cone, the bandages are another story.

She ended up chewing her green bandages off during the so I took her back to the vet to get them re-wrapped and the girls that were working decided to wrap her feet in hot pink!

The girls at the vet also put this little message on her feet. It says I love you. It's very cute.
