Our boy came home last night and we’re so thrilled to have him back. He was exhausted after going through the check-out process at Dove Lewis and went to sleep shortly after we got him here, but you could tell that he was so excited to be at his house again, in his bed with his fam — not so sure he was elated to see his brothers, but Timber, at least, was excited to see him.
His incision site is huge — it’s probably 6 inches long and has 10 or 15 staples in it — It’s very Frankenstein-chic. And while he’s clearly still a bit sore and tired, over-all, you can see that his spark is back!
He’s on a “bland diet” until Monday, which I’m sure he probably thinks is spectacular — baby food, cottage cheese, boiled chicken, etc. And he can’t have any exercise for two weeks! That’s going to be torture for him. He’s already managed to get over-excited and jump off the couch too hard, causing a big yelp to come out of him, (which killed me), but I’m sure he’ll learn not to do these things… at least I hope so.
When I left for work this morning, I had to put an e-collar on him to make sure he doesn’t chew his incision site. I’m going to let you all fill in the caption for this photo!
