There, there, Theo. Don't be blue. It won't be so bad.
Theo is officially six months old. Can you believe it!? Can you believe we've had Theo in our lives for four months now? It feels like a long time and not a long time all at the same time. It feels like we've had him forever, but that he's growing up too fast. I'm sure other puppy parents can relate.
Well six months is when all the books say your puppy has reached sexual maturity. That's right, it's almost time to do a little snip, snip. My vet says we don't need to do it until he's around 8 months old, but I still think that my puppy has become a dog! Too bad he'll be reduced back to an it in just a couple short months. Mwhaha!
PS: I just talked to my trainer last night and she said her rule of thumb for neutering males is when their balls drop, it's time for them to come off. The question is, how can you tell when they've dropped? He's definitely got little tiny testicles, but I don't think that's their full glory. I asked Husband if he thought Theo's balls had dropped and he said that if I had to ask, then they hadn't dropped yet. I guess we'll have to wait a little longer!
PPS: What the hell kind of a blog am I writing!? I never envisioned talking about testicles and diarrhea when I started this thing, that's for sure.
St. Patty's Day Feast - I can't believe how long it's taken me to blog about the food I made during the week of St. Patty's Day! I made such good things that week and such good...
