I'm as nervous as any other dog-mom would be and made sure we scheduled the appointment during a week where Hubs and I would alternately be home to keep an eye on the convalescing patient during the days following his surgery. The receptionist at the office must've thought I was crazy as I asked her about a bazillion questions, including, but not limited too, the most important (per the ever-so-compassionate Hubs), "How much is this going to cost?" Of course, I was too busy being concerned with pain, antibiotics, and thwarting possible emergencies. Once a nurse, always a nurse, I guess!
So on Wednesday, just before heading out to a doctor's appointment of my own, I'll be dropping Sullivan off at the vet and picking him up a mere 8 hours later, just a little bit less of a man. Poor Sheepie. He doesn't even know what's coming!
On a brighter note, here's Sullivan's last year in review in the M household:
My first day at home, 12 weeks old
November 12, 2008
Check out those spots on my nose!
Unwrapping Christmas presents, December 2008
Mom forcing me to wear my rain/snow jacket
Obviously thrilled, January 2009
My First Snow and my Favorite Time of Year
Looking like a REAL Old English Sheepie
Six months old and Sixty Five Pounds!
Time to trim the bangs. Running into too many
car bumpers and street signs...
Hanging out with Mom.
Lookin' a bit like a homeless dog with that haircut.
Hung out with Gramma and GrandPaw for the week
while Mom and Dad went to the Islands.
All I got was this crab.
I'm tipping the scales at 80lbs!
We brought Sullivan home from the pet store on November 12th, 2008. We're not sure how he spent his first three months of his life (likely in a puppy mill of sorts), but since it wasn't with us, we'd rather not think about it! This fluffy knucklehead has brought so much love and so many laughs into our little home, we can't imagine our life without him! Happy birthday, Sully Monster! Wishing you many more tail-wagging, face-licking, bird-chasing, sneaker-eating and treat-loving years ahead!
