Today is finally here. Spay Day. Lester is taking Sweetheart into Dr. Kolar's this morning about 8:30. Dr. Kolar normally keeps them overnight after a spay or neuter to make sure nothing goes wrong.
The house is going to seem kind of odd without her there.
I think I have pretty much made the decision that I am going to adopt her. She has really recovered nicely and her personality is quite darling. She loves to play and has really started to become a snuggle bunny. I suppose I am somewhat selfish in wanting to keep her. I just cannot stand the thought of her going to yet another home where there is no guarantee she wouldn't be hurt again (even though we screen our adopter's thoroughly).
I am going to enroll her in a large dog obdeience class at the local vo tech (if there is still room in the class). The class will start sometime in January or February. I hope she does well in it. My ultimate goal will be to have her certified as a therapy dog so that I can do visits to hospitals, nursing homes and such. I would love to be able to visit a cancer treatment center to be able to cheer up those patients going through such a traumatic experience. I would like to do that in honor of my friend. However, I may get Sweetheart in class and find out she is a total goof and totally untrainable! Who knows. Either way, I will love her no matter what.
Hope everyone is doing good. My Dad continues to do well and for this I am very thankful for! Hope everyone is having a good week. I am treating myself to another four day weekend starting Thursday. What the heck, you only live once. :)
