Chantel, how is Shadie doing after her spay? None of my girls have had any problems, and were up and about the next day. They usually sleep most of the first day, but after that it's hard to keep them quiet. I do have to watch their weight - but then they're beagles. If I'm not mistaken, Shadie is NOT a beagle, and is a shepherd. Beagles are notorious chow hounds.
