Chevy and his "big stick". Notice the scar on his nose...he got bit by another dog because he was just being the friendly dog that he is. As usual, he didn't learn any lessons from this.
I tried to capture this picture just a few moments before. Chevy had managed to get the rope, ball, and log in his mouth, all at the same time. No, he's not greedy at all.
Chevy and his rubber chicken. Yes, he has a rubber chicken. I have to laugh when he trots around with it in his mouth--it has a squeaker in it, so it sounds like it is dying a very slow and painful death.Well, today's Chevrolet is different than yesterday's Chevrolet. Yes, Chevy got neutered yesterday! It seems, however, that the major surgery and pain medication has not changed the fact that he is indeed a rascal. The vet said to make sure he doesn't lick or bite his stitches, but that seems to be the least of my worries. As soon as the vet brought him to me in the waiting room yesterday, Chev managed to wiggle out of his collar and go visit all the dogs and children waiting. I finally got him home, and he refused to lay down and sleep. I set up his bed all nice for him, put his toys on it, even tried to lay down with him to coax him to sleep. Tried brushing him, petting him, etc. He just kept getting up and wandering. This was funny and scary at the same time 'cause he was kind of drugged, so he was staggering around. He kept banging his head into doors and tables, 'cause I think his vision was going wonky. I was almost in tears trying to get him to lay down! He napped a little bit, but when I set up my bed on the couch and turned the lights off, what did he do? He layed down on his bed right away!! Grrrrr. Today he is mostly back to his old self. He isn't supposed to run or jump, but he doesn't know that so I have to keep getting after him. I brought him to the church today so I can keep an eye on him. Not sure how I could come to love such a goofball who snaps at flies, barks at ants, eats an entire box of dog treats at one sitting when nobody is around, and gets pleasure out of sitting on my foot, which he is doing right now.
