Teds gonna have to get the snip early

Ted has now started marking in the house so I guess he will have to get the "snip" early I did get him to almost 8 months, so not bad!

When is he getting it? Benjamin is scheduled for 12/27, and he turns 8 mos old on 12/14. I need to do it now because I want to be able to take him to doggie daycare one day a week starting in January. He loves socializing and playing with other dogs, and I'm sure it gets boring for him to just hang out in my office with me all day (though I do take him for walks). If I put him in daycare without being neutered, they will just keep him in a kennel all day, which kind of defeats the purpose.

The vet assures me that this is all very routine, I know I know, but it's my baby, and I'm a bit of a nervous wreck. I am trying real hard to be a big girl, though. We should form a support group for parents of about to be neutered puppies.

He'll be fine, and 8 months is plenty old for a small dog.

Spay/neuter is no doubt the most routine of all procedures--no worries! You are doing the right thing and it will go swimmingly.

It will be so worth it in terms of his health and behavior. I hope your DH survives the procedure without developing sympathy pains lol!
