my little gremlin's big day

today is the big day for my bailey boo.  today is the day where she will never have to take a birth control pill ever again.  mayra calls it the "permanent birth control" which i guess is a good way of looking at it.  i woke my little gremlin up early this morning and she was so excited to see me.  i put her cute little leash on her cute little collar, and she started furiously wagging her cute little tail because she thought she had hit the jackpot and we were going for a walk.  i felt so terrible putting her in the car and going to the vet.


when we got there, there were two big dogs sniffing and growling at her, and she just looked up at me and cried and had an accident on the floor - something she hasn't done in weeks, so i knew she was terrified.  i was pissed.  i wanted to kick those big, mean dogs and tell them to leave my baby the eff alone, but instead i just picked her up and mean mugged the big, mean dogs just because they had pissed this momma off.


we were finally taken to the back where the vet weighed and examined her.  bailey weighs 17 pounds and vet says she looks great and healthy.  she's going to have the surgery, get up-to-date on her shots, get her nails clipped (finally, she was like a little velocaraptor with those nails), microchipped (so when she thinks it's okay to run away i can find her ass), get some heartworm treatment, and a few other money sucking preventative procedures and tests because i'm a sucker and the vet convinced me these were "highly" recommended.  i'm such a sucker, and the vet knew it.  way to capitalize on my fears and me being a new mommy.  i was nearly in tears when i gave her a kiss goodbye and handed her over.  i can't wait to pick her up tomorrow.  they said i can come anytime after 10:00 a.m. so i'm pretty sure i'll be there at 10:01 a.m.!

Aww! Poor mommy. We are suckers at the vet, too. They are such money suckers. Kirra (my dog) broke her toe and we almost had to take a second mortgage on the damn house.

I am super jealous that she never has to take BCP's again! Ha!

Did your vet have you fill out a form that asked you how you feel about your pet? The choices are like (1) My pet is just a pet. (2) I love my pet but he/she is not my first priority. And (3) My pet is a member of the family. ??? I, of course, circled option 3. Because my pet is just a baby who happens to have a genetic disorder that caused her to walk on all fours and grow hair all over her body. And bark. And not grow beyond 7.2 pounds. But yeah, you catch my drift, haha. I think the vet makes you do that so they can become aware of all the option 3 circlers. We're the ones that keep them in business!

I don't know why but I find it really creepy cutting the nails on a dog. Now a kid no problem. Mayra always has a way with words.

She'll be better than ever. Just think...she'll be a satisfied gal who can have it whenever and not worry about puppies in her future.

Enjoy your time without Bailey. Treat yourself to some fun activities. Because if you sit and stew and worry 10am tomorrow won't arrive til next week.

Awww poor baby, I'm sure she will be just fine!

K dropped Hanna off which was good b/c I don't think I could have handled it but I took her to get the stitches out and that was the worst. She freaked out!

aww little bailey will be good as new when she comes home! i always do everything the vets recommend too...if i didn't and found out something was wrong later down the road i would hate myself, so you are doing the right thing!

i'm thinking of your little girl tonight!
