UPDATE: Timmy made it through surgery like a champ.  He is already up and about…and ready to come home!  Updates tomorrow on the little guy!

Its a dark day in the O’Hurren household.  You see, today Timmy is getting fixed.  I hate the term “fixed” because it implies something is broken, and of course, Timmy is perfect and in no need of repairs!  Aside from having signed a non-breeding contract with our breeder, I do know that it is the responsible thing to do as a pet owner.  Bob Barker himself reminded us daily to “Spay and neuter your pets”, so it must be good!  Neutering can be really beneficial for male dogs in terms of reducing marking, aggression, and territorial behaviours. This was beginning to become an issue with Timmy, so this cannot come too soon!

I am a bit nervous because it is surgery after all, but I know its very routine, Tim is a healthy pup, and our vet is qualified and responsible.  We are dropping him off at 8:30 am, and we will pick him up Saturday after 9:30…ball free.   I have to admit I’m kind of looking forward to a “night off”, not to mention a sleep in on Saturday!  haha.

I’ll send an update to everyone Saturday! In the meantime, here is a cute pic of Timmy at the park this week:
