Swissy Sunday

Well this weekend has been cold and rainy and the crew has been confined to the house. The twist is that Scarlett was spayed on Friday and we've been instructed to keep her calm and no running and jumping. That worked for the first eight hours she was home. But first thing Saturday morning, she was ready to go.

We've spent a lot of time trying to keep the pups calm and we've had to resort to separating them in different rooms a good part of the weekend. This photo is from one of my times with Scarlett. She likes to be with us and can't resist getting up close. Sometimes she even lays a paw on top of my feet while I treadle the wheel.

Sherman had had his own adventures lately too. He is an intact male, but that is going to change on Wednesday. He is having prostate problems and neutering will correct the problems. You can see in the photo where he was shaved for an ultra sound. I guess this is all our part to keep the local veterinarians in business during these tough economic times. After Sherman's surgery, we are expecting another weekend of trying to keep everyone calm and settled. No easy task with two very energetic dogs.

Oh bummer for Sherman! Hope Scarlet is doing ok! Yikes, another "quiet" weekend with the dogs...

ugh - that stinks! I know how you feel except that my multiple surgeries were on the same dog! Good luck with Sherman - at least they both have to be kept quiet and can keep each other company!

They are so cute, hope all go's will with both of them.

Scarlet is such a beauty. Too bad you are not going to breed them. Good luck to Sherman!
