Ok, if I think my 4 hour glooming (ooops, I meant 'grooming') session is bad, I think Hershey drew the shortest straw. Dad and mom finally had her spayed now that mom is at home full time and can watch over her. Hershey disappeared for an entire day and when they brought her home, I swear they brought back the wrong dog.

The 'new' Hershey is not hyper, does not bark and jump at the television, does not chase the mop and vacumn cleaner... basically all she does is lie there and look sorry for herself.

The night after the surgery

Feeling very sorry for herself...

Even the new toy couldn't cheer her up... she was just uninterested

Day 01 after surgery

Still listless and grumpy (and the cow is still intact!!)

Day 02

I gave her a 'get well soon' toy, but she didn't even sniff at it!!

Fortunately her interest in her favourite treat is still there.

Day 03

The old Hershey is back!!!

(guess the cow won't be around for much longer)

Hi, Huskee & Hershey...

Yup looks like Hershey is feeling better...

How long did the cow last?

Abby xxxooo

Hi Huskee and Hershey, Martha can empathise with Hershey - she was really miserable after she was spayed but, like Hershey, slowly got back to normal.
Fortunately I was fine!

Good to see Hershey is back to her good old self. When Ciara was spayed, all she wanted to do was carry a stuffie around and woo to it.

Hershey...bless you little heart...they 'fixed' you and you didn't even know you were broken!!!
We are glad you are feeling better and up to your old tricks.....

Note just in the USA we sometimes saying our pets were 'fixed' instead of spay or neuter....
Hugs and purrs,

hi. i dunno if you saw my last comment but i've been following your blog and i found it so wonderful to read all about hershey and huskee's lives. you take amazing pictures, they really capture the essence and personality of your dogs. it actually inspired me to start my own blog!

anyway i'm glad to see hershey feeling better! i wonder what the cow looked like when he was done..

That second pic -- the cone has the unintended (but hilarious effect) of making it look like a giant Hershey head on a tiny stuffed-cow body. Funny stuff!
