Dog Days Of Summer

While my brother and his family are in San Antonio this week for their summer vacation, they left Dooley with a woman who works at their veterinarian’s office. She was to keep him at her house until Wednesday and then she took him to the vet’s to have him neutered. It was a really good idea to do the surgery this week, since it would give Dooley time to recuperate for several days at the animal hospital, and when the family picks him up this coming Sunday, he’ll be perfectly fine. I talked to Emily yesterday and she said Dooley was doing well. Dawn had called to check on him, from San Antonio, and he was recovering nicely. What I think is absolutely brilliant, on my sister-in-law’s part, was having the dog sitter take him to have him neutered. That way, when Dawn goes to pick him up on Sunday, and he tells her what they did to him while she and the family were off having the time of their lives, she can act as surprised as Dooley! She’s off the hook then, and Dooley won’t hold a grudge against his family. Brilliant. I just feel sorry for the dog sitter the next time they try to leave Dooley with her for a week.

Brilliant! Next time my kiddo needs vaccinations, I'm hiring a babysitter to take her to the doctor.

No? Oh, well.

Hi Aunt Vanessa, thanks for stopping by my blog today. I've just been looking at pics of Emily and Reece on your Flickr site, and they are totally adorable! You seem to be a very doting Auntie, which is nice for them, I bet.
