We had a good time at the North Star Havanese Club picnic yesterday. We got to meet KarMar and Nino as well as njsmommy and Jango (see pictures below). There were a total of 16 Havanese there, so it was really fun. Last night, it took me about three hours (watching TV the whole time and taking breaks from the work/torture) to get the mats out of Shama's coat.
Thank you, Diane, seesawhavanese, and boomana, for your replies to my post yesterday.
We'll pick up some onesies today. We'll try to get cute ones then post pictures of her in both her cone and her onesies.
We dropped her off at 7:30 this morning. They said they would hopefully not need to shave for the IV. They said we could leave her bow in.
She is the only one scheduled for surgery today so will have a very quiet place to sleep overnight. The surgeon will look in on her at 10 or 11 PM, but then she'll be alone until 7 AM tomorrow. We think that, between her high activity level yesterday and her surgery today, she'll sleep the whole time. She is used to sleeping in a crate in a room down the hall from us, and we really like everyone at our vet's office (i.e., feel confident about her surroundings), so we think she'll be OK. The vet did say we could take her home at 5 PM today if we promised to keep her calm, but we do like the idea of the medical team checking on her again in the morning.
(Experienced people, do you think I should take Shama to her practical obedience class on Wednesday morning at 9:30? I was originally planning not to, but the head trainer said I should be able to bring her and just maybe not partake in all of the activities. There is no jumping, however, only the occasional run when we practice recalls. I was thinking maybe I'd just bring her in a onesie . . .)
I'll let you know what happens!
