Overnight, my big girl time came to visit. I got some yicky blood on Mommy’s bed sheets, but she’s not mad. She said everything comes out in the wash. I feel all “off” today. I thought it might make me feel better to hug my blankie for a while.It did help a little bit. For a little while.
I don’t have to wear my big girl panties when I go outside, so Lucy went out with me in the dog lot until it got too hot.
Then, when we came back in and the panties got put back on me, I felt embarrassed and I hid under the pillow in my kennel. Oh, that’s where my blue bone went!
Toward the middle of the afternoon, I fell into despair. Isn’t this ever going to end?
Finally, I asked Mommy to baby hold me. I’m so glad she was home with me today.She held me and loved on me every time I asked for the rest of the day. Those were the best parts of the day – other than food time. Oh, and our walk was good, too. I sure hope this is all over by tomorrow.
For now, I am going to just make a pillow sandwich with me in the middle and try to sleep this whole thing off.
Mommy changed me into clean panties. You might have noticed these are the green ones. The blue ones are now in the wash, along with my Warrior Cape.
Goodnight, everyone. I am Xena the Schnauzer wearing my Big Girl Panties.
Xena’s Mom here with a word about why Xena is not yet spayed. I know this can be a rather hot topic. It is not because we are being irresponsible or that we are going to breed her. It is for her future health. Both her breeder and her vet recommend at least 2 to 3 estrus cycles before spaying. When the time comes, I will be exploring the option of a partial hysterectomy, leaving her ovaries intact to continue to give her the hormones that help her body in so many ways. I urge you to go here to read about the newest findings of early spays/neuters.
