3 Days Old
I hear a rumour going around, someone mentioned "tail docking and dewclaw removal". I wonder what this is all about. Will it hurt?
Mummy told me in a dream last night, it won't hurt too much. Wow, I feel so much better after she told me that. She told me that a very smart man once wrote in a book, that our puppy brains are so undeveloped at this point, that our nerves are slow, and this causes our response to any type of stimuli to be slow. This is why my brothers, sisters and I will have less pain sensation, and this is the reason that tails are docked when we are less than 3 days old. I guess this means this "tail docking and dewclaw removal" thing must be happening quite soon. Oops
