Tayla’s sad day

Let’s start this by saying Tayla is not going to have a good day tomorrow. We’re dropping her off to get her desexed in the morning. I feel for the poor girl, she wont be having a happy Easter. So everyone feel real sorry for her.

I know some people have reservations about desexing animals. Whether it be because of the fear of a major operation, the feeling that it’s unnecessary or that it may change their dogs personality somehow. Honestly Tayla is such a happy-go-lucky scamp at the moment, I was a little concerned that such an op may dampen her spirits for good (I’ve since been assured repeatedly that she’ll be fine :P).
