Well, Cora had a red letter day today! She made a trip to see Dr Cullum and took a long nap, and when she woke up, things were quite different. I am glad to have this day over and behind us. She is so little, and while I didn't want her to have puppies, it was hard to hand her over when she barely weighs 7 pounds. She came through it like a champ though. Now we just have to watch her through the recovery period. No stairs, running or jumping for 10 to 14 days. For that I am glad that she is so small, because I can carry her everywhere and keep her fairly quiet. Today, of course, she is super sleepy, because she is still feeling the effects of the anesthesia, but tomorrow she will perk up, and she'll be trying to jump up on the couch.
The vet also found a few embedded baby teeth and took them out so that there is room for the others. They were worried that with the teeth being so close together they would be more susceptible to decay.
She can now just recover and grow. I am so glad to be over that hurdle.
I just hope that she sleeps OK.
