Hermione is Home

It's been a few days since Hermione was able to come home. She spent a total of two nights in the vet hospital and was able to come home on Wednesday. Sorry I haven't posted sooner, but with her coming home, things have been crazy around here.
She was checked over by the vet again today and he gave her a clean bill of health. She had been scheduled for her Kennel Cough vaccination and a microchip in just over a week, but I cancelled that appointment, thinking that Hermione may need some rest. We'll probably get her microchip in when she is spayed and then contemplate Kennel Cough vaccination at another time. I feel like her little system needs a bit of a break.
Since returning home, she has been her crazy self. She is playing like she always did and eating like a horse. She is on a bland diet to help with her excessively soft poop and she seems to be doing well on that.
I think Glacier may have actually missed her. He was quite excited to see her and both he and Roscoe seem to be paying her a little more attention. It could also be because she is growing like a weed and she doesn't look like a wind-up toy anymore. Maybe they realise she is actually a dog now.
Hermione's little trip to the vet also taught us a bit about her personality. I always knew she was a diva, but her reaction to her bath and blow drying confirmed it for me.
The vet Tech, called a Vet Nurse here, gave Hermione a bath and blow dried her. She was quite stinky from living in a kennel for over 24 hours and they didn't want to return her to us smelling like a barn. How thoughtful of them.
When Hermione was handed over to me, all fluffy and smelling flowery, the Vet Nurse said that Hermione could be a show dog. Once the blow dryer was busted out, Hermione rolled over on to her back to enjoy the warm air and let the Vet Nurse blow dry her belly. She even let me clip her claws yesterday. So, it's official. We definitely have a princess on our hands.
Speaking of my diva, I better be getting her off to bed for her beauty sleep. She's had a very busy day going to the vet and then over to Tenie's flat for a girls' night. Roscoe and Glacier joined us as well and they have both already found a comfy place to catch some Z's. I think they have the right idea.
Thank you to all of you for your encouraging comments and good thoughts. :)

A true diva! I wish my Ruthie would let me clip her nails, or clean her teeth or give her a bath. The only thing she lets me do is clean her ears. I tricked her into thinking she gets an ear massage.

Very glad to hear she is home and doing well.

I'm glad Hermione is back to her normal self.

I wouldn't have thought you could wait so long for microchipping. I presume she won't be spayed until at least 5 months old? You could always get the chip when you get her wormed next. It is only a little injection after all.

I hope she continues to improve and am glad that there is no lasting dammage.

Take care, xxx.
