A few weekends ago, we headed up AF Canyon with a couple friends and the pups to enjoy some good fall weather before we get completely wintered out.
Conan and his pal, Ranger.
Love my little family!
Then fast forward to last week, Conan had the honor of getting neutered. He has now joined the “party hat” rankings.
Let me give you a little back story on this dog. They generally like to neuter puppies when they are around four months old to help prevent marking, excessive chewing, things like that. We had full intentions on getting Conan fixed from the start so when he was about four months old, we took him in. Once there, we were told that he had not “dropped” yet and to bring him back when the time came.
Conan is now 9 months old.
We waited and waited and those man parts never came. We decided to take him in again to get his shots and just ask about his little problem. (I thought that we might have a “he-she” dog on our hands…poor guy haha.) They gave him his shots, felt around, and swore up and down that he must have been fixed before we got him. I assured them that he was not based on his initial vet records we received, so they scheduled the appointment.
Turns out, he was not a “he-she”. His parts were just tucked nicely away in his abdomen and have been taken outta there! He was one sad fella.
Don’t mind my puppy talk voice and the blurred sections…I didn’t realize that the lens wasn’t auto focusing and it took me awhile to figure out :)
After his anesthesia wore off completely, he was back to his energetic, crazy self in no time. We sure love our puppy dog!
More to come soon on the j.wride CD release concert this past Saturday. It was phenomenal.
