This morning I had to go in for surgery. It was my doctor’s day off, but she cares a lot about her patients so Dr. Rea came in on her day off to take care of me. Since I was going to be neutered next month anyway, we decided that there was no sense in putting me under twice and took care of that as well. I also got a microchip installed so I guess I will be able to run faster after I heal. At least that is what I think it is for.
Here are a couple of photos of me from after the operation.

My custom bandage
We decided this first collar was a little large, so we are trying a smaller one. Hopefully it does the job. Thanks again to Dr Rea and the Redwood Animal Clinic, in Redondo Beach for everything.
I can not believe how fast some squirrels can be. I am a lot faster than my mother and she could catch them with relative ease. There must be more to it than just speed. Of course, back in Indiana the squirrels did not have as many trees to escape to either. My photo of the day for day 74 of Project365 is of me at the end of the chase with a really fast squirrel.
I'll Be Back
As I have mentioned before, El Nido park is one of my favorite places to go for a walk or run. El Nido, or The Nest, has so many smells and really big trees. My picture of the day for the 62nd day of Project365 is of a neat tree that houses an untold number of squirrels. I guess it is a squirrel high-rise.
