I just wanna talk about me...
It has been busy week. I knit up a cowl but I don't like the way it turned out so it is now at the frog pond. Rippit!! I knit up an eternity scarf that I really like, but I have been so busy I have not had time to photograph. I will try to do that later today.
I do have pictures of my little precious one though...
I guess I want to talk about her now. Here she is just after a nice refreshing bath.
I know this is going to sound strange, but it is true. She gets upset to the point of making herself sick if I don't take her with me everywhere I go. She is my little shadow, I do love her as much as she loves me though. I am glad she wants to be with me, but I wish she would adjust better to Tuesday and Sunday mornings when I am out of the house without her.
On with the story. I left the house Tuesday to attend my regular Tuesday morning Bible study, which she has never gone to with me because really... Anyway, after bible study I went into town to eat lunch with my hubby. Little Miss Priss didn't want to be left home alone for those 3 hours even though she had toys, food, water, and lots of room to play. She was so stressed by my departure that she was a sick little girl when I got home. So, I spent the remainder of the day Tuesday, and all day Wednesday holding and loving her back to her less stressed self.
This is not the first time I have been away and she was so stressed that she got sick. Funny thing is, when I get home and hold her, she perks up and begins to get better almost immediately. How strange that seems to me. Has anyone else experienced this with their little Yorkie? I have read that they get very attached to their owners and will stress to sickness if their owner is away, but I really just thought it was bunk until now.
I said that to say this... Back in January I had scheduled her for surgery on Thursday, March 25th, to be spayed. She is just too small to have babies, in my opinion. I was probably overly concerned, but she does weigh only 2.7 lbs and she just stressed herself sick when I was only gone from home for a few hours. So I took her into the vet first thing Thursday as scheduled and explained how worried I was and how I was thinking we should just postpone this since she had just been stressed to sickness on Tuesday, the anesthesia is hard on small ones, she would be alone overnight, blah, blah, blah, and on and on why I should just take her back home with me and forget this surgery. Long story short, the vet said he would take her home with him overnight but that she needed to stay there overnight to be monitored. because she is so small. Reluctantly I agreed that we would proceed as planned and left the vets office.
SO... I spent the rest of the day worrying and doing anything I could to keep myself busy so I would not worry so much about her. Hubby took me out on a lovely date to a very nice restaurant and all I could do was talk about the baby (that would be Prissy). We did manage to have a nice evening all in all. He is a good husband.
I am excited to say Prissy is home now and doing well. I just love her to pieces. I am doing better too now that she is home.
I think that today we will sit in the bed, watch good movies, and knit something. I don't know what we will knit yet, but I will think of something. I am sure one of the yarns in this house will call out to me just begging to made into something.
Ok... I am done talking about me for awhile. In my next blog, I will continue with the organization tips.
Hope you have a GREAT weekend.
