and its done.
my pup finally was "fixed" yesterday. he was a little stoned when we picked him up from the vet. he REALLY wanted out of there when he saw us. my husband was really worried about him all day long. i figured 'eh, dogs get that done all the time. no biggie'. i guess he was more sympathetic than i was!
he seems all good now! except that he keeps trying to lick the stiches.
