I'm dog sitting this week and not only that, but doing after-surgery care.
This little fella was neutered yesterday and because he is perhaps the most hyper-crazy-HDAD dog you'll ever meet, the vet's office offered to keep him overnight last night and sedated to make it a little easier.
It was funny because they called to say surgery was over and he did great. I thanked for them for the call and got ready to hang up. I expected to pick him around 4:00... but before I could hang up, suddenly they launched into an offer to keep him there overnight and board him... FOR FREE. Whhhhaaaat? Ha ha.
They said they don't usually board neuters overnight - just spays - but that they would do this and keep him sedated and calm for the night before I had to bring him home.
I just laughed. And thanked them. Because yes... he's THAT antsy, hyper, active... use whatever words you wish. I asked them, "So, you noticed he's a bit hyper, huh?" They just laughed as well. Yep.
But he's a SWEETHEART; and oh-so-sweet though! The most loving, happy, TRUSTING and innocent dog ever.
So today I picked him up, and because he has anxiety when I leave the room, and because I want to keep him calm and resting, I've been basically 'stuck' in the office most of the day. I've gotten out to do a few things - and put him on a leash and taken him out a couple times, but for the most part, trying to keep this little crazy pants 'quiet and resting' is a full time job.
But oh... what a sweet face. And worth every second.
