I can be a dog again - I can be a Siberian Husky again - I am FREE to run and play. The nice man surgeon Dr. H. said I need to get out and enjoy life again. Running is going to help build the muscles in my gimpy leg and help me heal even more.
Oh, Happy Day!!! My first time in the backyard in 8 1/2 weeks. My leash is attached so Mom can catch me if I get too wild and crazy:)
I can also go without my cone since Dr. H. says what is left of my scab is very superficial. If I continue to lick it, the cone has to go back on. But Mom can try using some of yucky-tasting Bitter Orange to keep me from bothering the area.
Mom used this concoction on Angel Phantom's tail when he had that nasty tumor and sore that would not go away. It worked well with him, so here's hoping I can say the same thing.
You know the Momster is a worry wart and she is also very cautious. So at least for starters, I will go out in the yard without Misty and Timber just to give me a chance to see how well I can manage. Slowly she will let the two youngsters join me. As for the cone, caution always wins over compassion with her. She is going to let me go without the cone when she is here with me and put it on when she leaves the house and overnight for a few more days. I can live with that. I am just beyond overjoyed with today's clearance!!! For my first time outside she left the cone on me. But when I got inside, she did take it off.
Awww, c'mon, Mom - can't I stay out a little longer?
And can we come out too?
OK, let's go in but you promised me a tasty treat!!!
Let's celebrate together!!!
Woos - Lightning - I AM BACK!!!
