Donald took me to get the stitches out this morning. The wound was bleeding a bit yesterday but seemed ok this morning. When the nurse was looking at them she discovered there was a slight amount of bleeding, so they are having me return on Monday when everything will be fine, hopefully! My brother's stitches were removed yesterday, and our accidents were on the same day last week although his fall seemed to be much more serious.
I left Rocky in the crate and told my neighbors on both sides so they wouldn't be worried. I have no idea if he barked a lot - he sure was happy to see me, and even happier to see Donald.
The weather has been super the past few days, and I hope it is a sign of things cooling down a bit.
Rocky is going to the vet tomorrow to get his parvovirus shot and rabies vaccination. I'm going to double check the rabies shot because I seem to remember they don't get it until at least 6 months. I was looking at the requirements for getting a dog license, which I haven't done yet. For a neutered pet the fee is $15 (if I'm remembering correctly). If the pet is intact the fee jumps to $75! I don't intend to get him neutered until somewhere from 6-9 months, so I won't get the license either. It's surprising they don't make a different rule for a small puppy, as there is no way a young puppy should be spayed or neutered at such a young age, and I don't intend to spend $75 for the license either.
Have a good weekend. I have no plans except for the visiting the vet. He looks so innocent sleeping on the floor next to me now, but he really knows how to get me riled up! Getting into my purse and chewing up Kleenex is one way that he loves to do it. I can see the gleam in his eye, and before I can clean up the chewed tissue he is already on his next trick!
