Update: Sophie

Trevor and I spent the entire morning with Sophie at the vet, while she got fixed in a room that looked as sterile and equipped for surgery as my kitchen.

She was completely out of it for several hours after we brought her home in a taxi (the driver asked: "Is she vicious?" as Trevor carried her to the car, her head lolling). We put her on a blanket in the living room. She couldn't even pick up her head, but we could tell she was coming out of the sedative when her tail started thumping on the ground.

Oh, dogs.

We are glad that Sophie made it through her surgery - and doubly glad that you stuck with getting her fixed!

Your girl Lulu has been enjoying weekly visits to Grandma and Grandpa's house. She is a sight as she zoom, zoom, zooms through the grassy areas in front of their house.

We do have a puppy that we think would be a terrific companion for Lulu. We named her Inky and she is a cocker/shih zhu mix - she looks more shih zhu than cocker. She is about 3 months old now and is going to be a little dog. She probably weighs about 6 pounds now. Something I hope you will consider.....

We are at 6 months left for your term, right? Wow, you will be home before we know it! \

Keep laughing!
