On the 20th march we took Flossy and Sebastian to be spayed and neutered. It was quite a long drive but they were both very good in the car. Flossy just lay down on a blanket on the back seat. Once she did try to climb over my shoulder to get in the front with me, but after Tony held her on his knee for a while, she was happy to settle on the back seat again. When I got out of the car, Tony said she was jumping up at the window crying for me. She does need a lot reassurance and gets easily worried and isn't entirely comfortable with a lead. She did have a snap at Tony when i went in to the vets and he stayed outside with her and he went to pick her up when she got upset. She also had a bit of a snap whilst she was in the vets.
The following day she was feeling very sorry for herself and wouldn't leave the large cage that she was in in the staff room. Yesterday she ventured out of the cage and decided she was going to snuggle up with us on the settee. When Luke came to work she was very pleased to see him. She seems particularly warey of men but makes an exception for Luke. She has been great with the other dogs in the staffroom and today had a bit of a play with them. When she isn't snuggled up next to us, her favourite place is on the windowledge where she can bark at anyone she spots. She is so much happier and more settled today,
The German Shepherd mum that we rescued the same day as Flossy had a very unsettled first night and was disturbing the other dogs by trying to get out of her pen. She has now settled and her and the pups all seem to be doing ok. She has been called Mary and is an extremely affectionate and loving girl.
Sebastian who was neutered when Flossy was spayed, is recovering well. (picture below- Flossy on the way back from the vets).
