|He had no idea what was happening today....|
This is the day that Tucker is getting neutered. We had hoped we could wait till he was at least 7 months but in recent weeks there has been some raised lips with him towards Stewie. Mostly over food but sometimes when in play together. The play is when the red flag went up and signaled that we needed to nip this quick. It was one thing when Stewie was raising the lip to Tucker but to see Tucker go back at Stewie was not too pretty. Certainly it was Tucker trying to show he too was "the man". They never got into it with each other but day by day the potential was there.
Sweet Mr. Tucker was clearly confused with no breakfast this morning. He came bounding out with Stewie to the kitchen doing his little dance and trying to tell me to hurry up that he was hungry. What do I do but only let them outside and bring them back to the bedroom. Stewie wasn't any to pleased either but he has more patience. They both went to playing and jumping around the bedroom hoping to annoy us I guess and get them some breakfast to quiet them down. The kitties weren't to pleased as all the rambunctious behavior was disturbing their beauty sleep.
I hopped into the shower where Tucker was licking at the water that accumulated on the edge at the sliding doors. He was allowed water for one more hour and he would drink this but not out of the water bowl in the kitchen. The kitchen meant only one thing this morning....food! He continued to follow me around closely, making sure he wasn't going to miss out on his breakfast.
Once at the office for check-in I asked if we could weigh him and see what he was at now. He weighed 19 pounds and 2 ounces which really surprised me! The last weigh in he was 15 pounds 9 ounces on January 19, four weeks ago which is almost a pound a week. I keep wondering how long he will keep growing in height and weight. At this point he weighs as much as Jesse did when he was full grown but he seems taller.
Stewie was thrilled when he finally got his breakfast as well as the kitties. It is very quiet here..... I haven't had much time for writing as my daughter and her fiance are visiting us before they head back to the East Coast :( , They have been living in Seattle for the past year and now are headed back to Cape Cod and New Hampshire where his family live. It's a big year as they get married in October!

It's going to be a long day till Tucker comes home....
School has been going really well for Tucker and I. He doesn't really like the "Downs" and certainly doesn't like to stay in that position so we will be working harder on that once he is feeling up to school practice. Looking into the next class after this and now I am thinking of changing programs with someone else. I'm not really 100% happy where we are.
|I miss Tucker.....|
I'll let you know how Mr. Tucker is doing and getting back into blogging as well as reading all of your blogs towards the end of the week. Miss you all!
