Dune Update

5 Aug

Dune’s surgery was successful, and I was able to pick him up after work. The vet put him in a carrying box, and when we got to the car, I opened it up so Dune could see out. I thought he would be all groggy from the medicine, but he started to poke his head out, and eventually tried to get out, so I had to close the box back up.

When we got home, he seemed pretty normal. Maybe a little sluggish, but he was roaming around the house the same, and was very eager to eat dinner. Twilight was so freaked out by him that she didn’t even try to eat first. She just wanted to check out his stitches, which kinda pissed Dune off.

Twilight was a very good big sister though, and would follow him around the house; keeping an eye on him. Seriously, wherever he was… she was there. It was hilarious.

“MOMMY! What happened to Dune?”

“Oh, well he lost his will to live, sweetie. He’ll be ok though.”

That cone didn’t last very long. Just as I was about to fall asleep, Dune decided he was done with it and started to thrash around. His movements began to affect his neck stitches, so I took the cone off. I went home over lunch today to check on him, and everything looked fine. Such a good boy!

    Aww poor Dune! At least he’s on the road to recovery… when one of our dogs had sticthes our biggest problem was keeping the other dog off of them! In the end we had to put the cone on the dog with no stitches so that he wouldnt be able to get at the stiches on the poorly dog!

    Glad Dune has found the “will to live” once again.
    You Crack Me Up!

    And…what a GORGEOUS photo of Twilight[where she asked you what was wrong].

    So, Dune’s not poking at his stitches? Safe to keep cone off?
