My Goldie is Spayed. :(

Today was rough. I really didn't tell many people that Goldie was going to get spayed today. I am not sure if it was my nerves and not wanting to talk about it, or just the hope it would happen. This is the fourth time we have tried. Other days, everything happened. Once my reg vet was out and the fill in was there. ( That wasnt going to happen. ) Another we had to go out of town suddenly. Then her liver numbers went up so bad and it wasn't safe.

Well liver numbers are better and today it happened. I have been a little sad. I didn't want her to have puppies just for the sake of breeding or "having" puppies. But I wonder if she was wanting or supposed to be a mom. Is that corny?

One time she dug up a litter of Rabbits. We live on a golf course and have a ton of rabbits. She was going nuts wanting what was in the ground. I finally went and looked and she had two little rabbits curled up and she just licking them and "babying" them. It was so sweet.

I made Tom bury them back. They didnt make it, because the birds got to them. I honestly don't think they would have made it anyway, as they were buried in a wide open space. But Goldie went back to that exact spot looking for those babies for WEEKS! Maybe months. She missed those babies, I know.

So I thought she would make a great mama and here I am taking it away from her.

Tonight she is hurting but ok. She wimpers a lot and can't get comfortable. She goes from bed to bed. I hope its better tomorrow. I can't stand to hear her cry. I can't take another day of this.

She loves her sac bed and buries in it.
Heres some photos.

I hope I did the right thing. Poor girl.

Awwww that is the sweetest face and how sweet that she wanted to take care of the bunnies. I am sure that you did the right thing or you wouldn't have done it. If you ever do decide to have a female you breed I am sure that she will be right there helping watch over the puppies and taking care of them. I hope she feels better soon!!

She looks so sweet and cozy in those beds.

Please don't doubt yourself. You knew it was going to happen at some point, but it is just so hard to watch these sweet little gals when they hurting. She's lucky to have a sympathetic mama. I was a mess with worry when Mister Trump (Carlito) was neutered and even worse when Wendy (Maddie) was spayed. It is so hard to watch them go through something that you didn't have to do. In a few weeks though, you'll be so glad. No more cycles for her, no more pregnancy worries for you, and no torment for poor Stogers.

Hang in there Melissa. Tonight is the worst and tomorrow will be a little hard too, but Sunday should be much, much better for Goldie.

Goldie will be better quickly and then she'll be happier,probably not having to fight off Stogie.
They say they are healthier Melissa---I think you did the right thing.She is extremely sweet all curled up in her bed.

Shadow bounced back so quickly from her spaying, I was amazed. She seemed like herself after only about a day. The vet said to keep her calm, ha! That wasn't going to happen, she was acting as if nothing had happened. It was much harder on me, I'm sure. I hope Goldie bounces back as quickly.

You definitely did the right thing. We can't always know whether or not the right thing was done or not all we can do is go on instinct sometimes and pray for the best and expect the worst.

Awww that's so sweet and I'm a guy and even I think that's sweet so it must be..... I really love the bed you have for her it's so big and cuddly I would like to sleep in it. She definiltey has the motherly instincts if she's diggin up rabbits at the never read about anything like that before. It'll be fine I'm sure...your a great Hav Mommy.

Thanks you guys!

Leslie.. I thought about you today. Here I am a mess and I thought I would not make it through what you endured. I just wouldn't. You have my respect!

Goldie is 2 1/2, as I had to show her. She finished last July but then all the set backs, and we travel so much. I think I did the right thing. I would feel much worse if she got prego and something happened during delivery.

OH and I had Goldie and Stogie while she was in heat once. I thought how hard can it be... just put them in different rooms. Joan said NO it wont work, they will find away to get to each other. SHe was right!

They were animals. They drove me nuts. NO rest when you are H****!
On and off the bed ALL night. I had diapers on them both, they were ripping them off. Finally Goldie went on vacation to our friends house and I finally slept! Poor Stogie went into depression for a week.

Ok after, that story I know I did the right thing!

I bought that bed at a dog show. I'll find out what the company is and put it here. It is one of their fav beds. They crawl in it and roll around. Its like a sac. They like the prince one too. Of course we have a princess one, but she got in Stogies. They are slippers.

Awwww Melissa,
I know how difficult it is watching little Goldie not feeling well, but don't second guess yourself. She'll be back to herself in a couple of days and healthier than ever for the long-run.

She looks so snuggly in her snuggle bed!

Let us know how she's doing tomorrow.
