He came to work today because he had an operation yesterday (neutered-I'm whispering because he's sensitive about it :)). I just didn't have the heart to leave him at home with that big plastic collar around his neck. Apparently, he was not well behaved at the vet's yesterday - we were supposed to pick him up between 4pm and 5 pm and there was a message before 3 pm telling me to come and get him because he was singing to them and in fact, had been singing to them the whole time except for when he was under anesthetic. He does not like to be seperated from his people or have a change in his routine. He's fine with the crate in the morning when I go to work because he knows no one is home but he cannot tolerate being in there if he knows we are home. He can't even stand to be on the other side of our french doors while we are having dinner. And he does not have a big manly bark - he has a high pitched, yowl-y bark.
