Ruby had a Vet check this morning and at almost 4mos old, she weighs 30lbs! She's doing very well with the housetraining...no accidents in quite some time...so long, I've lost track! She got her last shots and is good until next year, so that's good. She will be going back the end of November to be spayed. The surgeon at our office told me she will have to spend the night, but are usually released the next morning as long as everything goes well. The one thing I forgot to ask was cost...anyone know what spaying costs typically are? I guess that's all for now. Ruby is sleeping soundly at my feet. Poor girl is just tuckered out!
