It’s incredibly hard to believe that one month ago on May 13th that I was just bringing Domino home the evening of his surgery. It was a long sleepless night, but it was worth every second. If you told me that night that he would be where he is today I doubt I would have […]

3 Weeks!! It has flown by

Wow. It’s been 3 weeks since Domino’s surgery. He’s doing amazing, I couldn’t have asked for better. He gets his stitches out from his neuter this weekend. Which is good, because he is in desperate need of a bath! As far as adjusting, it’s been wonderful. His adjustment to the amputation is great. He’s getting […]

He’s home!

Surprise, I’m impatient. Domino has been doing so well today that we decided to bring him home two days early. He will still go to work with me tomorrow for a bandage change, but tomorrow night he’s home for good! The vet decided earlier today that Domino was progressing so well and in so little […]

Domino is still at the clinic and continues to do great with his recovery! The hardest part now is the waiting. We originally thought he wouldn’t come home(for good) for about 2 weeks, because he’s still intact and the doctor didn’t want to neuter him at the same time as the amputation. So he’s scheduled […]
