I took one of mine home the same day of their surgery...ONCE...never again. They act so different and unless you know what to expect, it can really freak you out to see them the way they are right after surgery! I've seen it a million times and even I freak out when it's my own animal! Well, anyway, sending healing vibes her way and your way too, to get through the nervous stuff!
Ruby came home the same day of her spay. We love our vet, when Rubes came out into the waiting room she was just like she normally is - bounding around, being a dill, just the usual. The vet was watching her and said, `Yes, she seems to be DEEPLY psychologically scarred by the whole ordeal' and then, `The first thing that woke up was her tail'. LOL! You'd never have thought she'd had a spay - everyone told me they're not nice at all for female dogs but man, Ruby was only slightly less nutty than usual, and that was only for half an hour!!
