    DefaultUpdate on Homerīs surgery

    I picked Homer from the vet hospital on saturday. I am amazed at how well heīs doing. Heīs walking perfect, no limping and the wounds on elbows are very small and barely noticeable. Doesnīt seem to be in pain at all

    I brought half the pharmacy over (wow! you wouldnīt believe how many things I have to give him). Heīs allowed to go for walks (no running, climbing and going downstairs constantly, but can do it slowly)

    The major damage is phsycological. Poor kid is very stressed and anxious from the experience and seems to have a lot of accumulated energy, which unfortunately he canīt burn running or playing.

    He looks like poodle all shaved up on the chest and legs...

    Awww bless his heart. I'm really glad he's doing so well. In no time he'll be back to normal. In the mean time, spoil that boy!

    Thanks. I was expecting to pick a lame dog but he was bouncy and hyper as always. I just need to work on calming him and gettin rid of the stress.

    Hopefully in a month he will be ready for an off leash rump in the woods, very well deserved!

    Thanks everybody. Went home for lunch and he was comfortably sleeping on my feet, looking totally relaxed.

    Poor Misha had to go for a couple of weeks to a friendīs house til sheīs over her heat but it will be better for Homer, since he can recover in peace, and sheīs happy with her "surrogate" mom (my friendīs lab, sheīs like my dogsīmama because she met them since they were 2 month old pups)
