Bye bye balls

Philip got neutered on Friday and is now recovering, which is going very well. He was a cryptorchid, i.e. both of his testicles didn't drop, so the vet had to find them wherever they were. Now he has a shaved belly and an incision on his abdomen, with 5 stitches. It looks so painful, but he's been taking it like a champ. He was back to his normal self by the following morning, and after a few tries (which were stopped by me), he seems to understand that he shouldn't lick the area, so he has been very good about that. He doesn't even have a cone to wear - yay! We go back in two weeks to have the stitches removed.

And now for a happier note. Being the silly Corgi that he is, Philip loves to roll around on his back making funny noises and sometimes licking the floor. It's kind of hard to explain on words, so I present you a video instead from when he did it as a puppy (I need to make a new one now that he's a bit older and does it even more hehe):
