Kate is our 5year old Chihuahua who has been in our lives for just over a year. She didn't have the best start in life but she's coming on leaps and bounds! Here is her - very spoilt, pampered life.

Spay time..

Well. This is it. The time is now. Kate has been in our lives over a year now, and now that we know her heat cycle we have been able to book her in to be spay. She is booked in tomorrow.. We are nervous about this for several reasons - she is exceptionally tiny. It's hard to imagine tiny tiny heart and lungs coping with all that. Also - she is 6 years old and has very little vet history due to horrible previous "owners" and we have a long journey ahead in getting her to where she should be health-wise. The first step in this journey is her spay. We are both nervous, (my partner an I. Kate hasn't noticed.. ) We have set up her cage - this is her travel cage, but she loves it! Even with the door wide open she often chooses to sit there. So we have brought this into the house to encourage her not to try and jump up and split her stitches. So cross your furry paws for us! Update tomorrow. :-) Does anyone have any hints or tips that helped make this easier for your pooches?

  1. Good luck Kate! You'll be fine, you're a tough little cookie :)

    She'll be absolutely fine, just make sure you give her plenty of love and hugs (well, even more than normal!) and she'll be great.

    Can't wait to see you tomorrow x
