Gertie: One Week Post-Op

After one uterus-free week, our Gertie has:

Jumped up and down the beds and furniture -- oh, thousands of times. We stopped trying to prevent her from doing this around Time Number 542.

Marinated herself in the mucky springtime lake shoreline not once but twice -- despite our best efforts to keep her on a leash or on a tether whenever she's outside. She has a Gumby-like flexibility that allows her to snake outside the smallest of door openings despite our best efforts to block her exit until we get her hooked up to her leash.

Rolled in deer doody at least once.

Despite all of this, her incision is clean and non-swollen; scarcely noticeable.

They say that God watches over idiots and children. Evidently this special dispensation also extends to idiot-children dogs.

Apparently so. What a little stinker! Give her a hug for me.

Apparently! By the way according to the Seeing Eye, dogs have about the intelligence of a 5 year old. They're just kids in dog suits. Peace.
