One of our volunteers, Eve, called today with a status update on Starbuck.  Starbuck came to K9 serveral months ago, very pregnant and uncomfortable.  She had her nine puppies in our care (which we named after the Planets) and was recently sent to the vet to be spayed. 

Apparently, the vet had complications during the procedure and was unable to remove Starbuck's ovaries.  Therefore, she is technically fixed and unable to have puppies, but she will still go into heat.  The vet graciously reduced the fee by 50 Dhs.  I had to chuckle to myself to think that only a male vet would think that not eliminating a woman's monthly visitor would only be worth 50 Dhs.
