In honor of World Spay Day, Laila is celebrating by showing off photos of her bare/"covered" belly after she was spayed a little over four years ago. And what a coincidence it falls on Tummy Tuesday!
After my surgery, they sent me home in this awful "bonnet" to keep me from bothering my stitches.
It felt so good sitting in front of the door airing out my tummy and getting all those nasty V-E-T smells off me.
Mom felt so sorry for me with that awful "bonnet" on my head, that she took it off and rigged up this contraption on my tummy to keep me from the stitches.
Because my furs were so silky soft, I had trouble keeping the tube sock on so Mom reinforced it with one of her nylon knee highs. Don't I look silly, but, hey, it worked!
Finally the knee high and sock got to come off! Here I am showing off my shaved tummy. You can barely see the scar.
The message of World Spay Day is that by spaying or neutering your pet, by supporting spay/neuter efforts in the United States and abroad, and by informing others of the importance of spay/neuter, you become an important part of the solution!
