Tomorrow is THE DAY
So it's finally come... tomorrow, February 12, 2009, Riley (A.K.A."Coosa Creek's Sir Riley, Lord of Essex") is going to have his balls cut off. We know this is the right thing to do. We know that this will add years of quality to his life. We know it's the healthy and socially responsible thing to do. And we know that it's in his adoption contract that he is not to be bred. And still, it's sad. He's also going to have his eye-teeth taken out, as the adult "canines" are coming in behind the baby ones which haven't fallen out. I suspect that will be more uncomfortable than the testiculectomy. (Nicer made-up word for castration.)
We still love you, Sir Riley. Don't hold this against us!!!
