Poor Ruby ......

This week it was time to take Ruby to the vet to be de-sexed.  We picked her up on Wednesday after an overnight stay. Our instructions were that she was to remain quiet for at least the next few days and as she is a pretty active puppy and does a lot of jumping up, it was suggested that giving her a sedative was recommended for those first few days. So armed with the sedatives and pain relief, we headed home. Of course the other thing we had to do was put an Elizabethan collar on her. She doesn't like it but has adjusted to wearing it and can get to her food and water bowls without much bother now which is great.
She's been eating well and doing all the right things except the occasional jump up but without those extra tablets not sure that would be the case.

Now we just have to survive the next week or so with no dramas and she will be free to run around the back yard and go for her walks again.
Will be back soon hopefully with some quilting progress. Not much of that happening at the moment.
Till next time........Happy Stitching.......
