Day Eleven

Mojo’s stitches are out! He still has to keep his “cone of shame” on for a few more days.ย  We went for a walk around the lake today and although it tuckered him out, it was like he never lost his leg.

People who met him commented on how amazed they were that his surgery just happened 11 days ago and were surprised at how well he was doing. They couldn’t believe their eyes when I told them how much of a recovery he has made in such a short time.

He’s sleeping much better and is able to rest on his “bad” side. The bruising from the surgery has completely vanished. He’s able to climb up into bed and up the stairs with no problems whatsoever. He has a little difficulty getting into the Jeep but the Ruff Wear Web Master Harness makes it much easier to get him in and out.

We need to finish the antibiotics but the vet couldn’t be more happier with his progress.

Good boy, Mojo…good boy!

  5. Yay, Mojo! We’re so glad to hear you’re doing so well. Holly loves her walks, too – it was so important to her that we keep walking as she recovered. Even the shortest walk seemed to help keep her spirits up! And around the lake – that’s pawsome! We’ll start the countdown to no more cone of shame!
    Hugs,

  6. Hi Mojo,

    I am glad to hear you are doing so well. I canโ€™t understand why humans are amazed by us. Dogs rule. My mom wants to see come to work soon.

  7. Great job, Mojo! I knew you would be up and around quickly. I know your pawrents must be so proud of you. My only advice to you is to really play up your injuries before you get all better. Make your pawrents spoil you silly ๐Ÿ™‚
