R2017...Long-haired Dobe looks just a touch embarrassed to be caught without her knickers on, but I bet it feels a lot better. I'm glad they didn't nick her up too badly. I hope she comes out from her hiding place and joins the rest of the world soon.
We had Trip fixed the day after we brought him home (he was getting to THAT age, and we didn't want him to start developing a habit, you know). He sat behind some boxes in one corner of the spare room after we picked him up and all of the next day, without moving. We had a baby gate at the door just to keep him where we could find him, but in the middle of the following night, we could tell he had jumped out because we could hear him around the house checking things out (and knocking things over).
He was innocently back in his corner by morning, and spent the next few days watching me from hidden places. I was painting the kitchen, so he was able to sit behind the plants in the dining room and watch the action without being seen (he thought) and I could check on him. But if I made it too obvious that I saw him, he would slink off to another place to hide and watch, so I spent a couple of days (as I removed wallpaper and painted) peering at him out of the corner of my eye.
By the next day, he seemed to have decided I was a harmless drudge; he walked up, rubbed me all over and flopped in front of me, belly up. And he's never looked back.
