Cricket recently had to go to the vet for a teeth cleaning. Everything went well; all pre-anesthesia blood work came out good, and there were no major issues with her teeth. She was not a happy camper when she came home.
We put her in the crate because she was still pretty loopy from the anesthesia, so we didn’t want her wandering near the stairs or jumping on the furniture, or for the other dogs to bother her. Being the stubborn beagle that she is, she sat there like this for most of the evening, giving me dirty looks and only lying down to sleep once.
The cute part was that when Luke kept going up to the crate, Sheba would chase him away! She was apparently trying to protect her sister and give her some space from their nosy brother.
When we had our dinner, I gave her a little bit of scrambled eggs which she was happy about and then we let her out and fed her half a meal – kibble softened by water. Then she was a happy girl again and finally went to sleep! By the next afternoon she was totally back to her old self.
