Lucas went to Russell Animal Hospital this morning to be neutered. They called by noon and said he had done fine with the surgery. We paid extra to get him micro-chipped. The little guy seemed a bit overwhelmed this morning with all of the staff that was approaching him because he was so stinkin' cute. Lucas is just under 11 pounds now.
Meanwhile, we assumed Elleigh would miss her little brother tonight. She runs to the door repeatedly most evenings when either Michael or I are not home. She will even ring her bell to go out and look in the driveway for Michael's Pilot. It sounds cute, but it becomes annoying after the 1st or 2nd time. But she really hasn't seemed to have skipped a beat tonight with Lucas gone. She hasn't looked for him. She hasn't been clingy. After Michael got home, she never rang the bell again to go out and look for Lucas. In fact, Elleigh seemed to be very excited to play tug with us, and snuggle on the couch with just Mikey, and play basement monster by herself, and not have to gulp her dinner down so Lucas wouldn't get to it. I dare say that she seems to be happy he isn't home tonight. Could it be puppy sibling rivalry?!
We wonder if she will be excited when Lucas comes home tomorrow night.
