We had 5 dogs for a little while and after having sent the 5th one on to her permanent home it was much quieter here. I couldn't believe that one Beagle could cause so much trouble and make so much noise as she did. When she left the other 4 were so quiet I kept feeling like I needed to check to make sure I hadn't forgotten someone or something.
What had really happened though is that when Copper was here with us she was Trouble with a capital T. She would get the others so riled up and then they would all be getting into trouble. Now that she is gone, my pack of 4 seem like the most well behaved Beagles in the world. I guess... one bad Beagle can spoil the whole pack! She is doing much better in her new home where she is the only dog and she is getting 100% of the attention of her 2 owners. And I am doing much better with not worrying so much about what my other 4 are doing and can relax a little again.
Try to rejoice in your day of peace and quiet and simply look forward to everything returning to normal upon Tramp's recovery. We'll keep you both in our thoughts today.
The vet called me... Tramp has 2 canine teeth (aren't they all!?!) that should have fallen out. We decided to pay $23 now while he's 'under', instead of $123 later if "wait and see" fails. I told them to microchip him while they were at it (plus $45'ish). He's also getting his rear dew claws removed (they're loose) pre-planned but still $80 while under for neutering. Doesn't take long to add up /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif
Poor little guy's getting snipped and poked and pulled at all over the place! :freak:
We picked Tramp up after supper last night and he was still a bit wobbly but he quickly returned to his old self once we got home. He was so excited that when he saw "Dad" he whacked his head against the door way in the vet's office trying to get to him! :biglaugh:
Apparently Tramp wasn't too happy with the people at the vet office. There was no way he would let them attach his leash to his collar when it was time to leave! They had to bring him up front with a one piece that slips over his neck and get us to put his leash on! I guess some more socialization is in order... /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/frown.gif
Glad Tramp's home and doing well. Years ago when I had my Shadow (Rainbow Bridge) neutered, he climbed in the backseat for the ride home from the vet's. He usually rode up front with me. Guess that's the only way he could express his displeasure with me. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif
I took Tramp back in yesterday to get a dew claw incision checked. He spent every second of our time there trying to get out that front door and whining for all he was worth. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif Not a happy camper! All was fine with the incision so fortunately he didn't have to stay. :thumbup:
