Isn't is GREAT when you go home and the sheer joy of having you back in the house sends your dogs into a frenzy (even if you have only been gone a few minutes)? Isn't it EVEN BETTER when you're recent tripawd starts to get his sparkle back?

Well I think it is big-grin I just stopped home over lunch and Barret seems really good today! This is how good:

That's right, a 20 lb, 3 legged dog who is still recovering completely knocked me over and slathered me in kisses :) I still have a smile pasted on my face. The best part? My DIY nanny-cam setup caught the action so I could share it with everyone clap

Here's a picture from last night, he was buzzing pretty hard from the drugs, but not in pain.

And here's one from lunch today. He props himself up to sit. I guess his remaining front leg is still sore. He sits like this most of the time, it's pretty cute!

Ok, now I want to see your gratuitous photos! Lots of them kiss

The last pic is my fave.  So, so cute!

Liberty (Libby) was diagnosed with OSA on 1-22-13.  Right front amputation on 1-31-13. No IV Chemo. Metronomic Therapy started 2-19-13 along with supplements and some home cooking. Lungs clear until 1-06-14.  She's still her happy, hoppy, bossy self.  Living the dog life to the fullest and a proud Winter Warrior. :) RIP my Libby 4-21-03 to 3-19-14

Hahaha Puppy Pants! I could put a little black box over it in photoshop... Or he just needs to move his paw a little to the side.... I'll try to keep the rest of my pics a little less X rated, LOL

 

Yup, can't still stop smiling! A very large weight has been lifted off my shoulders.

Oh. My. DOG!

Barret just makes me smile, he is such a cutie. This is really great to see and it's wonderful to hear you sounding so much better. I have all my paws crossed this continues.

More pix!

I meant I wanted everyone else to show their gratuitous photos here too big-grin But, since we've got our spiffy bandana on today (just for you Sally, this one isn't X rated) I guess I'll post another!
