Guilty dog-mummy

My little Shih Tzu, Jake, was neutered today. The procedure went well, but he's so miserable and sorry for himself, I feel as guilty as it's possible for a person to feel. People keep telling me it was the right thing to do - so why do I feel so bad?

I hope he perks up a little soon - even if it's just to have a little drink. It's weird having him showing no interest in food. Sorry, Jake - I hope you forgive me soon. That's if I ever forgive myself...

Poor love! It's the lot of mummies everywhere to feel guilty like that!

Don't feel guilty! Think of it as relieving him of an urge he can't meet, or taking away an itch he can't scratch.

Glad he's perking up. It doesn't take long.

Aww poor little fella! He'll forget it in no time and be back to his old self I'm sure.

I felt guilty when Mabel was spayed as I felt I was taking away her choices to be a Mum, then I had to remind myself she is a cat and would of had no choice anyway once in season!
