Take It Easy...

"My little dog...a heartbeat at my feet."
Tag's surgery was a great success and he was a real trooper. I stayed at the clinic the whole time and we came home together mid-afternoon. After we got home, we spent the entire afternoon and evening together on the big bed. I took a little nap with him and then worked on my computer while he slept mostly on a quilt next to me.

He's sore and a little uncomfortable, but he's resting pretty well. As long as he's right next to me so I can monitor him, he won't have to wear the dreaded donut collar. Even though it's better than the cone, he doesn't have anything to compare it to except no collar at all. He just sits and looks at me when he has it on, and he won't lie down. Then he starts whining and I take it off and snuggle him for a while. I know. I'm a huge sucker well trained, aren't I?
Oh, well. The closer he is to me right now, the happier I am. Today, I'll keep him in the studio with me while I work on some of my small projects. He'll tell you all about it next week. In the meantime, I'm sure he'll be taking full advantage of my coddling! (I don't mind even a tiny bit, either!)

Somehow I think we take it harder than they do. That is how I was with Maggie when she had to have the HW treatment..and she had to do it twice. Funny how we can love an animal so much isn't it. And if it was us that was under the weather they would be by our side. Heal quick Tag :)
