  1. Thanks, there is another right after this one where he is yawning.....He was over the pics. LOL
  2. Tuff and Aspen and their cousin Thor.
  3. 1 week post surgery and everything is looking good. We had a quick check in at the vets tonight. He seems to be healing well.....just driving his mom nuts BUT what's new. 7 weeks to go. We no longer have to wear the cone of shame to bed. THANK GOODNESS!!!! Next apt is next Friday.
  4. YA the chill has worn off. LOL. It's his favorite time of the year. The air is cold and all he wants to do it sit outside with his nose in the air. BUT.......he's only supposed to be outside on his leash with me, and well mom has to put on 20 layers to go sit outside. So now he just sits at the back door and barks and barks. So ya the chill is soooo gone.
  5. His leg is looking A LOT better. There was a lot of swelling and bruises after but it is looking good. He had to stay the night at the vets which has caused a lot of separation anxiety. Even if he can see me when I step outside he freaks. We go back to the vet on Friday for a checkup and get his temp to make sure he has no infection. We had some bleeding the 2nd day home but we got it stopped. We pulled my bed into the living room and all of us are sleeping together so he can get some sleep. It seems to be working really well. He's not a fan of the cone of shame but he only have to wear it to bed. He follows way to close with it on and there is a cone up my butt every night. Starting to feel violated. LOL
  6. Tuff is out of surgery and waking up. The Dr. said everything went well and he was waking up from anesthesia. Don't know if he will be able to come home yet tonight or not.
  7. I take CBD oil with THC for my fibro pain. In Oregon it's legal and I have found 1 brand that works great. I've tried several. It's really about finding a brand and an amount that works for you. Taking it regularly helps as well. I also use a topical rub with CBD in it as well.
  8. Surgery is tomorrow and I have been busy getting everything ready. Baby gates up, all of his crate blankets and bedroom blankets washed. Steaming the floors and vacuuming. He goes in at 8:30am tomorrow and I will worry every second that he is there until they call me to tell me he is done.
  9. Thanks everyone. I just called the vet and he is scheduled for Thursday the 8th for his surgery. He will be able to come home that day which is good for him, me and his sissy. Aspen has never spent 1 day without her brother and Tuff has only spent 3 days away from me his whole life and he's 7.
  10. Thanks, I'm home with them all day so he won't be alone, and he enjoys his crate so it shouldn't be a big issue. He does pretty well taking his meds if I wrap it in a piece of turkey bacon or lunch meat. Anything else and he just spits it out. LOL We live in a small town so there is no physical therapy for animals here. The vet gave us a plan on rehab with massages and slow walking. We are trying to get it done soon so he doesn't miss too much of winter and before the ice comes.
  11. So Tuff has to have ACL surgery. Anyone have any experience with it that might have some tips or some advice on recovery? This will be his first major surgery minus having his man parts taken. LOL. I'm a little nervous.
  12. It's all good, I just thought it was funny....BUT I mean if she wants to take them for a few days. She would return them w/in a couple hours. LOL
  13. These are my dogs not Rachaels. LOL
