The dreaded snip, snip.

Jamie here, filling in for Ziggy again.

Ziggy went in for his neuter and microchipping this weekend and did well with anesthesia--just a little hoarseness from the breathing tube--so he kind of mewled and squeaked rather than barked and "aroo'ed" for a couple of days.  But he was chipper and spunky as ever when I took him home, with a great appetite, as usual.

He escaped the dreaded e-collar because he was so miserable looking in it and he didn't bother the surgical incision site at all.  We go back to the dog-tor for a check up this weekend but I think he'll be just fine.

We'll post with pictures soon!  Ziggy is growing like a weed and finally can go up the stairs outside of the house (we're still working on going down the stairs with confidence).  Love him to pieces.  Bark at you later.


  1. Glad Ziggy is doing well. And I am glad there was no cone of shame.

  2. Aw man...snipping sucks!!!! She's getting fixed in a week or so and then will have to wear that silly collar...should be interesting!
