One week after cruciate surgery

Well, that's a happily uneventful week, so different to last year. So good that there is not much to to be honest. He remains in his pen unless we go in to garden or for one of his short 10 minute walks. He is pretty needy and has learned quickly to whine and bark for attention, of which he gets lots!  He easts nornally, even taking his antibiotics without a struggle. His poo (dog owners understand the need to say this) has been regular and normal after the first 3 days. He sleeps well, even with his comfy cone on, and yesterday I gave him his usual bed back. It has soft sides so a little more tricky to climb on to.

Stitches look ok. No weeping from the wound. I just need to watch it though after the slight problem last year. He walks well, a slight limp sometimes, and bears weight on it almost all the time he is standing.

My stint of supervising comes to an end tomorrow and back to work on Friday. Happily my better half takes over for a few days so he will have had 2 weeks of full time company. We'll probably leave him for an hour or so over the weekend just to start getting him used to being on his own a little again. All being well, vets on Monday night to have the stitches out.
