I actually fostered 3 pups from this litter, and Button was the smallest and thought she was in charge. Because she was so small, the shelter decided to let me "foster to adopt." What the means is I make the commitment to adopt her, but she to return her to be spayed when she is ready.
Button was only 2 pounds at a couple months old, and they like to wait until they are about 5 pounds before doing spay surgery. So she had her surgery this week at 6 months old when she was up to 4.7 pounds.
Button did fine with her surgery but according to the veterinarian didn't get any bravery awards. No surprise there! She also got a "cone of shame" since she kept licking her incision. Typical for her though, she thinks the cone is fun and has been running around bumping into my other dogs with it. Pretty entertaining to watch. In the meantime, little Button is still my best pal. . .
