Hello my tripawd friends!
Life on 3 legs is getting better each day. Today is day 6 and I have heard my mom telling everyone that I seemed to have "turned the corner". I think that is because I finally went to the bathroom! ( Just like you Genie- it took 5 days! My mom was comforted knowing that this seemed to be common.)Anyway, my biggest problem now is staying quiet. I sometimes feel ready to roll, and then end up over doing it.
My mom took off my big green bandage yesterday. I looked so handsome in it that she is going to send a picture. I am feeling prety wobbley without it. I sort of got used to moving with it on. Oh well, I know that I can figure this out!!
My mom says to thank all of you again. Whenever she has a question, she can usually find the answer here!
Hugs and licks,

Don’t feel bad Charlie they took my cute hot pink bandage off also. But my mom bought me this cute pink doggie t-shirt so that I don’t feel left out or naked. Glad to hear that both of us are doing great. It has been 1 week and 1 day for me, and so far so good. Doggie kisses.
