Oh, hell yes, Icky!!!

Check out this picture of Tiggy's leg that I took tonight. Piled on the dog couch with a bunch of dogs, eating my dinner, and I just happened to look over and see this. This is the FIRST time ever that I have seen Tig stretch out that leg!!! HURRAY!!!!!!




I had to stay really quiet while I grabbed my phone to get this picture. I didn't want to get all excited and have him move, since I wanted to record this for posterity.

NOTE: That's Dusty in the background. He's my 9-year-old Mini-Doxie/Yorkie mix, all 9 pounds of him, and he is the perfect little gentleman. Goes everywhere with me, specially when I go on service calls. I tell everyone that he's my assistant.

And I just came in from the last potty before crate time for Tiggy and Pooh, and got another surprise! Tiggy stretched out to go pee, and stood on his right-hind leg while he was peeing!!! Another FIRST!!! HURRAY!!!!!!

Within the last 24-48 hours, I've also noticed a big difference in Tiggy's attitude. He wants to GO. Now. RIGHT now. And I think it's because he's not in pain anymore. I have to be really careful with him now, so that he doesn't get loose coming out of the crate and take off, and I'm keeping him on a 3-foot leash when he's outside for his very short walks. He wants to GO when he's outside too; not just a little potty walk, but lets GO for a real walk. And I can't do it, dammit. He has to stay quiet for a whole month after the surgery. At least he gets his social time up on the dog couch every evening, and that does help him. But he is feeling good, probably for the first time in a very long time, and I just want to let him run and play -- and can't. I know I have to be patient, but oh, I can't wait to see him all healed up and rolling free!

WHOA!!! LOL!!! I just thought of something really funny! It's St. Patrick's Day now -- and Tiggy has neon green sutures!!!

Awwwwww, this is wonderful news. Our little critters don't have any way to understand when they hurt, but they bear it so much better than I would. And look how fast Tigger wants to just put it behind him and get on with life! That's awesome, Jo, and you're such a good nurse.

But we all knew you would be.

Did Jo just say sofa?

Trust me, Sunny. That thing is not, repeat, NOT, a sofa. No self-respecting sofa would look this bad -- LOL!!! It is DEFINITELY a couch, and a dog couch at that.

And NO, I didn't say "sofa". You did.

What was your dinner doing there unattended, Miss Jo?

My dinner was not unattended. There wouldn't have been anything left for me if it was unattended. There would also have been the dogfight from hell if my dinner was unattended.

I had to move quietly to get my phone out of my pocket to get that picture. Considering that Manny was in my lap trying to bribe me out of some of my dinner, getting the phone out without disruption took some very careful maneuvering.

It was well worth the effort!!!
