Bruno Has The 'Snip'.

Updated: Jan 28, 2022

When I got up this morning, I had no idea what the day had in store for me. As usual I was keen to go for a walk and Julie decided to take us up on to the hills. It was a beautiful day despite being a bit nippy. When we got back home, I expected that Julie would give us our breakfast, but she seemed to forget – I was not a happy puppy!!

Later, she put me on my lead and took me to the car all by myself – I thought that I might be having a special treat. Instead, she took me to see Dr. John , my vet and she left me with him. I was rather concerned. I was put into a large crate, and I waited to see what would happen.

I was given some kind of medication that made me feel quite relaxed and I rested all morning. At lunchtime, I was given an injection in my leg, and it made me very very sleepy. I don’t remember anything else until much later when I woke up again. I was so confused. I didn't know where I was, and I felt rather uncomfortable between my back legs.

I was so glad when Julie, Rose and Shep came to get me. I felt a bit disorientated so they lifted me very gently into the car. I was really excited when I finally got home.

Having not eaten anything for twenty-four hours. I was starving hungry and I wolfed my food down. The urge to lick my wounds was so strong that Julie put a ‘cone of shame’ on my head to prevent me from licking myself. It was hard walking around with a cone over my head. I couldn’t judge distances and I kept crashing into things. That didn’t stop me leaning over the garden fence though – I might just miss something.

I didn’t like the cone very much, but, by the end of the day, I was so exhausted that I just fell asleep in front of the fire.

I slept well that night although Julie made me keep my ‘lampshade’ protection on overnight.

My stitches are beneath the skin and are dissolvable, so I don’t need to have them removed. John will need to take a look at me before I am allowed to run free again off my lead.

That is a whole six days away. Just in case I am uncomfortable, Julie has been given a liquid painkiller to put in my food. – Hopefully, I won’t need it for long!!

Roll on next Thursday!
