Tonight, I take my puppy to the vet. To stay there. For almost 24 hours.

Tomorrow morning Gibson gets neutered. He has to get bloodwork done tonight and then they need to keep him overnight to make sure he doesn't eat or drink anything I guess :( I'm so anxious about this! I just know Gibson is going to freak out w/o me there tonight. I've been trying to look on the brightside. It will be like a little vacation of no puppy responsibilities! My husband and I even have a date planned for tonight. I still think about him though.. I know he'll be fine but, Ugh! It's nervewracking! I even thought about taking a half day today and tomorrow to spend more time w/him, but I think treating it like a normal day will make me more sane? Perhaps? We'll see. I just can't wait til tomorrow when I pick the little guy up :(

It was awful leaving him. The vet's office has glass doors/windows so we could see inside as we were leaving and he kept pulling the assistant towards the door to see where we went :( I hear around noon how he is doing and get to pick him up at 4:30.

How did it go Kelly?

Thanks everyone for the encouragement! I just spent a long lunch with him to wear him out a little. I'm sure he'll be ok, but I'm still nervous! And it's stupid that I'm more nervous about his feelings than the actual surgery! lol

Awww..know how you feel but it will be fine. Good luck.

it will be fine Kelly. Our vet's office even called us when Spencer woke up after the surgery. I called later in the day too. They sleep all or most of the time when they are there anyway.....he will be fine!!!! You will see a difference in him in a week or two!

We just had Seamus fixed a couple of weeks ago. Trust me, he'll be fine. Seamus gave us the 'Ill never forgive you for this' stare for the first day he was back but by the very next day he was trying to bounce off the walls and happy as a lark. Also he's already started to calm down considerably from before and is even *gasp* manageable on occasion. :) Just remember that unless you're breeding them its in your pups best interest to have them fixed. They don't roam and it helps prevent a myriad of illnesses when they get older. Good luck!

Kelly, Gibson will be fine -- it's you I'm worred about! All first-time "moms" go through this. In time, Gibson will learn whenever you take him to the vet, whether it be for a check-up or over night, you're always going to come back for him.

It'll be aright Kelly :) may be you can surprise Gibson with his favorite meal and toy when he gets home :)
