We were up at our usual, had coffee, and then at 6:30AM I put Rigg’s in the truck and took him to the Vet. I told him not worry, when Boy dogs get to Heaven they get their testicles back and are free to chase the girls forever after, So it was a lie, He doesn’t know it. He was scheduled early for his surgery and the Vet said if he was awake enough he would be able to come home tonight.
As you can guess I was restless all day with my buddy going under the knife. but at about 03:00PM I got the call that all had gone well in the morning and that he had just woke up and he would be able to be picked up after 4:00PM.
I got there at about 04:15PM and got his pain killers and instructions and then out he came like a drunk with one of those things over his head like a big cone, the Vet said to keep it on except when he eats for at least 5 days, so he doesn’t bother his stitches, I told her when the anesthetic wears off he’s out of that thing he won’t keep it on unless you can weld it on. She said well then you will have to watch him until those stitched areas is healed. Anyway 5 minutes after he was in the door even groggy he had gotten the cone off. Then he was happy and laid down next my chair and went to sleep.
Rigg’s a little lighter than when he left, and sedated.
But the good news is we have our Rigg’s home and in a few days he will be good as new.
Hey NELLIE, just wanted you to know My Italian Grandmother had the wooden spoon of all time, it was canning spoon, used also for caning, she passed it on to my Mom who gave it to my wife Donna where it now hangs in a place of honor in our kitchen, after keeping 5 generations of boys in mortal fear of it. here’s a picture.
To give it perspective, the baton next to it is a 36in. Riot Baton. The Baton on the right is a St Louis PD issue Rosewood with Chrome end caps. Neither of which is authorized for use by today's Defensive Standards.
Well that’s about it for now, I am now on nurse duty with Rigg’s, but it look’s like he is zonked out for awhile. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna…..
