Today was quite a day at our house. It all started normal enough. Dave got up on time and went out just like he always does. He brought the paper in to Mommy, just as he always does. The one different thing was that he didn't eat his breakfast or have any water. That wasn't his choosing. He was not happy about that idea at all. When I brushed my teeth, he put both paws on the counter and tried to get at the water. I felt so sorry for him.

You see today was his day to go to the vet for surgery. We decided we did not want any more Dave's around...anywhere. I kissed him good-bye when I left for work. Daddy took him to the vet this morning.

About noon I got a text message that Dave could be picked up between 2:00 and 4:00. I was the designated driver to bring him home. As I was paying the bill at the counter, a little push came to my leg. I looked down and there he was. Not the usual happy, jumpy puppy. He looked so pathetic! I took him to the car and drove him home. When he went in the house he immediately went to the living room and got on the couch. I placed his blanket under him and that is where he has stayed. He nods off to sleep and then wakes up and looks at me like, "What have you done to me?" It is so sad.

I know we will have our old Dave back by tomorrow, probably, but right now he is a very sad looking baby!

I am always amazed by the personality of dogs. I hope Dave is back to normal tomorrow.
