Last Wednesday, my best bud Boo had a little operation that a lot male pups have in adolescence. He ended up very swollen, sore, and sad. The vet prescribed antibiotics, bed rest, and a lampshad, but Boo had extensive swelling and was very lethargic three days after the operation. My usually happy pup cried for hours on end, and his swelling became much worse.
Gladly, I can make this relatively long story short by reporting that after a week, Boo is feeling 75% and is rowdy 100%. I spent some time on the forum while he was crying from his crate. I really appreciate the distraction. Thank you for the great pictures, advice, and stories.
